Spectacular Solid Quilts!,
This review is from: We Love Color: 16 Iconic Quilt Designers Create with Kona Solids (Paperback)
We Love Color is an excellent choice for quilters of all skill levels who want to quilt with solids. The range of projects extends from traditional blocks to improvisational piecing to curved piecing to appliqué and there are plenty of projects I'm wanting to do.
The instructions are clear and easy to follow, with plenty of diagrams. Any new or unique techniques are well-presented and offer the experienced quilter a chance to extend their skill set.
Many of the designers also offered ideas for alternative color schemes, which I liked. It was great that the quilting on each quilt was clearly shown and I also really liked the introductions to each quilt, where the quilters told us a little about each project and why they chose to do particular elements.
The only thing I felt was lacking was an introduction that outlined quilting with solids - it would have been useful to have a guide to start off with.
Overall, I recommend this book to any quilter who wants to extend their skills and think outside the square of the myriad of prints available today.
