Floorquilts - book reviews

Ellen's innovative technique is the talk of the industry! Here's what a few of the craft & quilting experts have to say about FLOORQUILTS:

"What a simply terrific book! For sewer or non-sewer, for quilter on non-quilter, for beginning crafter or longtime expert, here is a collection of colorful, small and large no-sew fabric craft projects that will be fun to make, and a joy to own."
Carol Duvall
Craft expert & television host
"Who would have expected that making a floor cloth could be soooooo much fun! I heard about Ellen's book and decided to sign-up for a summer class. Not only did I end up with a GREAT floor quilt, but the time in the class was so enjoyable. We swapped fabrics and shared ideas with others in the class and with Ellen's guidance and easy-to-follow directions we all went away satisfied and giddy with plans for making many more floorquilts and table mats."
Donna Wilder
Dynamic quilting industry leader
"Ellen Highsmith's Silver's "Floorquilts" has already created a niche for itself. And it's a show-stopper! It is kind of a quilt-inspired rug that is enticing and challenging...there are no set rules, no sewing, and you can let your designs fly!"
Virginia Avery
Wearable art quilter
"The results will be worth your planning and work and, like rag-rug making, this stash-busting project that will get you compliments for years to come.."
Mark Lipinski
Quilt Personality
"Ellen feels like a kindred spirit...Like me, she is drawn to quilts because fabric is her happy medium. Instead of working within the traditional structure of quilts, Ellen breathes new life into their designs, creating a fresh approach to decoupage floorcloths."
