Great quilting book for all skill levels
on March 30, 2011
I just got my long-awaited copy of Modern Log Cabin Quilting this week, and I can't wait to start sewing-- the only problem is deciding which project to do first. All of the designs are beautiful and inspiring-- approachable for beginners and launching boards for more experienced quilters to take the basics and put their own spin on the patterns. The layout is clean and clear with tons of tips, and the language and instructions are easy to follow and understand. The care and thoughtfulness put into each pattern is apparent-- the author's love for fabric, sewing, quilting (and log-cabining, of course), and making a cozy home really shines through on every page. I am also a knitter/crafter and have bought tons of pattern books that look pretty in the bookstore, but I really only want to make 1 or 2 of the projects once I look more closely at them. With this book, the only reason I wouldn't make every single one is that I don't have enough free time (or enough beds!) to do all that sewing.
