Books Ahoy: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

I have followed the True Up blog for almost 4 years now, and ran into the book signing of True Up’s author Kimberly Kight at Quilt Market over the weekend.  What fun to meet her AND get her new book, A Field Guide to Fabric Design.  I have a number of decade (s) old books on fabric design and there have been many good ebooks out recently, and some new good contemporary compilations, but this is a substantial book with heft put out by the new Stash Books, part of C&T Publishing.  I’m not sure I need it, but I can’t bear to miss out on a single resource in my biz.  She covers fundamentals, step-by-step design, color, repeats, handprinting and digital printing, business and how to get started. Lots of pics too, most importantly!

  1. The book looks stunning. Thank you for the post. I’ll check it out at our local Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Flagstaff. We aren’t a big city but often our B&N has some great books.
