This gorgeous coffee table book illustrates the ways quilters today are breaking traditions through color photographs of more than 230 quilts designed by members of the Modern Quilt Guild, and provides a brief history of the modern quilting movement. (Publishers Weekly, 10/2/2017)
If there's one coffee table book every modern quilter should own, this is it. Compiled by the Modern Quilt Guild, this book gives a brief history of modern quilting, culminating in the creation of the MQG. There are examples of early modern quilts, which are so inspirational today, and they explain how a movement became mainstream. This book is primarily a glossy picture book, featuring over 200 of quilts made by members of the MQG, including a number of Make Modern contributors. It is divided into sections based on different aesthetics of modern quilting―Modern Traditionalism, Solids/Graphic, Colour Palettes, Minimalism, Expansive Negative Space, Alternate Gridwork. While not every quilt showcased will be your cup of tea (or shot of whiskey), there is plenty of inspiration and it's a great example of the modern aesthetic. (Make Modern, 20)

All of the photos of the quilts in the book are readily available online (flickr, instagram, blogs). I wish more information about the quilts, the artist's process, and the inspiration were included with each quilt. The photography is well done, but the content is sparse. I'd recommend checking this out from the library rather than purchasing it.
