Design. Travel. Explore. One part travel-guide and one part sewing-guide equals all parts adventure. Modern lines and colors meet ancient motifs in 18 easy-to-piece quilts that reflect the color and mystery of the Southwestern United States. From the rich oranges and reds of Santa Fe to the whites and creams of White Sands, each quilt is artfully photographed on location in one of five Southwest regions from New Mexico to West Texas. Sew along with author and avid traveler, Kristi Schroeder, as she leads you on a road trip to some of America's most breathtaking scenic locations. Along with detailed piecing and instructions for making the quilts inspired by each destination, Kristi shares her favorite places to shop, eat and explore...inviting you to follow in her footsteps. Using landscape as your launchpad, Kristi will help you uncover new fabric palates and beautiful designs which you can expect your own creativity to follow.
