    “Everyone should read this book because of the insight into color and fabric choices that Karen shares and her organizational skills she employs in her quilt making. I think I have an idea for all those scraps of fabric and fat quarters I have been collecting. I can use up some of my “dogs” which are the fabrics I look at wondering what I was thinking to make me want to buy that fabric. Everything looks good in Karen’s style quilts.”

    “I bought Karen Stone’s quilt book with the CD just because the patterns were so striking. I never thought I’d actually tackle anything as intricate as the Cinco de Mayo quilt on the book’s cover, but it’s been surprisingly simple and very rewarding! I use EQ to print the foundation patterns and just go to it – it’s turning out beautifully.”
    - Juanita Fiorello

  3. Susan Fuquay

    “Just glancing through this book makes the reader feel they, too, can approach and accomplish quiltmaking as an artistic endeavor. And the directions even make Karen’s complex quilts look possible to construct.”
    - Susan Fuquay, American Quilt Retailer, July 2005

    “I am pretty jaded about quilts. I am exposed to them so much at the shows small and large that we attend each year, it takes something really special to impress me… now I’ve encountered [a] quilter whose rich, complex, colorful work has captivated me, Karen K. Stone.

    In a new book (Karen K. Stone Quilts, published by Electric Quilt Company, 128 pages plus patterns, retail $29.95) and on an Electric Quilt 5 compatible CD of projects and palettes, Karen Stone’s work is lavishly showcased in the context of her life in Dallas, Texas. With this book, under the editorial guidance of Penny McMorris, Electric Quilt has shown once again that it is on a par with the very best quilt book publishers in the world.

    Karen K. Stone Quilts, along with its companion CD, is the best one-two punch of a product to come out of EQ since Dear Jane appeared a couple of years ago. It makes a great gift, to yourself or the quilter on your gift list.”
    - Rob Holland, Planet Patchwork
