Review :

Leins studied to be an archeologist before turning to quilting, moving from ancient fabrications to modern fabrics. This book of 10 projects - including bed covers, runners, and pillows - is inspired by ancient architecture. Leins creatively pays homage to the aqueducts of the Coliseum, the inner dome of the Pantheon, or the cobblestones on a street; if it weren't for the photographs and explanations of the original sources, it might be difficult to see how Leins developed each design, but a comparative look between the rock-hard origin and her soft product immediately clarifies the links. "Flowing Fabric" honors the caryatids on the Erectheum; "Layered Conversations" draws on heaps in old urban landscapes. Lein's goals include showing that people all over the world, then and now, exploit "the same language of pattern," including catenary arches, herringbones, and squares within squares. The book includes two pull-out patterns in addition to the detailed instructions and experienced tips. The long-arm quilting on her designs is exquisite but presented without comment. (Publishers Weekly, August 3, 2015)

As the title suggests, this new title from C&T Publishing features 10 quilt and pillow projects that take their inspiration from classical art, design, and architecture. Author Leins has combined her love of world travel and archaeological studies to create designs with a global yet timeless feel. Also included are the stories and photos that inspired each project, as well as tips and techniques for improvisational piecing, creating a scalloped binding, and transforming a sketch into a quilt design. (Quilts eInsider, September 2015)

Quilting blogger Leins has a background in archaeology, and her first book-length collection of quilt patterns draws its inspiration from the art and architecture of the ancient world. Many of the hallmarks of modern quilting are featured, including asymmetry, creative use of solids, bold color choices, and improvisational technique. Some quilts are even more experimental, such as Flowing Fabric, inspired by the draped garments on a classical sculpture, which resembles a wing with its scalloped edge, and Going Places, influenced by the clamshell pattern of a European cobblestone street. Leins also works with traditional piecing, used to great effect in the courthouse steps-style Layered Conversations, with its echoing colored strips. Several projects showcase Leins's longarm quilting skills, with elaborate motifs filling the abundant negative space. A variety of techniques are used, including appliqu̩é, curved piecing, Y-seams, and improvisational piecing. The directions are thorough, and tips and diagrams are provided throughout. VERDICT There's a glut of modern quilting books out there, but Leins's eye for detail and clever construction makes this one stand out. (Library Journal, September 15, 2015)

Cross an archeologist with a longarm quilter and you'll et this beautiful new book by Amanda Leins where the quilts are inspired by classical architecture. (And they may or may not be square.) There is a bit of history, both personal and of the world, which sucks you in like a child sitting at the knee of a grandparent.This pattern book/travel journal hybrid has gorgeous photos of far-off places and times that instantly show where Mandy got her inspiration. And you are in awe of the depth of talent in her soul. While we may be awestruck by her patterns, she breaks down the design in easy steps. Newbies will love Mosaic Pillows, while advanced quilters can up their game with Going Places. (Oh my!) She describes the steps in the Theater of Dionysus by saying "gracefulness is visible in what remains." Well, et tu, Mandy! (Generation Q, November/December 2015)

Keep out the cold with one of Amanda Leins' 12 beautiful ‘wanderlust' quilts, inspired by classic art and architecture from her travels. Archaeology expert Amanda's interpretations of structures and images are bold and creative – and we love them! (Pretty Patches, February 2016)
