The thing I like about this book is that is is definitely not boring or simplistic, which I find is the problem with a lot of quilt books that I pick up and browse through at Joann Fabrics. I like modern designs and fabrics, and this book definitely fits the bill!
Also, this would be a great book for a quilting bee, as there are so many unique blocks to choose from!
The book is split into 6 chapters, each one focusing on a different shape: Squares & rectangles, circles, triangles, stars, polygons and diamonds. Each chapter features 10 different blocks made up in eye-catching designer fabrics plus a project and a full size quilt using the blocks. range of different techniques are covered in the book including appliqué, English Paper Piecing, foundation piecing and fussy cutting.
The instructions are easy to follow, and there is a section on quilting basics at the back of the book to help you You will also find colourful photos and diagrams throughout the book and templates at the end of the book. Personally I love the use of stunning colourful fabrics throughout the book. It would be hard not to be inspired and full of ideas after reading this book.
The first block I tried was the Flickering Stars block by John Adams. I think (someone can double-check the math) that the cutting instructions are wrong. The pattern says you need 12 print squares 4.5 inches, but actually you need 20: 4 for the centers of the stars, and 16 for the flickering points.
A few favorites: Tacha's Fast Forward/Rewind quilt, Brioni's Starry Hanging Storage, Katy's Orange Soda Quilt and John's Cub Crawl Baby Quilt!
I think there is a little something for everyone in this book! A definite must have for any modern quilter!
