To begin with I was on the fence about this book. Someone told me how great a book it was and I just ignored them. Then hubby saw this in my cart and surprised me with it, after actually reading through it I realized this book was different and just wowed me in presentation and all the possiblities. It's not a lot of patterns put together but a bunch of blocks that will look good either in a sampler, stand-alone or put together with the 10 staple blocks.

I can't find anything to complain about, except not having enough time or fabric to make everything from this book. I've made 2 blocks from this book, Morning Paper and Hot Cross Bun and had planned on turning it into a larger quilt but rethinking my secondary block (Hot Cross Bun). Normally these two blocks do not align exactly so I had to re-do some math to make it work but it really isn't all that difficult if you've been quilting or can do some math. I also changed out the center section for Morning Paper in a few blocks and again had to reevaluate my cuts but it wasn't that hard.

I recommend reading both How to use this Book and Working the Grid section once you've absorbed all the eye candy. You will need access to a scanner/copier as some of the blocks require paper piecing and others require templates, neither of the blocks I mentioned require either.

Wow! The first thing to say is this book is beautifully photographed. I adore the photography. The next thing to say is it seems like Amy is going to work herself out of a job! Have you ever wanted to deconstruct a quilt block but you weren't quite sure how? Read this book. Have you ever just wanted a little inspiration and then to make something all your own? Read this book. She details 40 intricate blocks by grid size and then 10 more "staples," which are those blocks that look plain on their own but really make the other blocks shine when put together. She also talks about new twists on sampler quilts and how to use repeated blocks to get some beautiful quilts. But the point of this book is not to copy exactly what she's done. The point is to mix and match techniques and understand how blocks and quilts really fit together in order to make something all your own. There's even a section near the back where she gives you the math to make each unit in the size you want. I have several quilts in the works that I must finish first, but I look forward to diving into this and beginning my own designs.

I read many reviews on this book before I decided to buy it. I don't buy many quilting books because I have quite a few. But this book is exceptional. For someone like me who has been quilting a long time, it offers fresh new perspective on blocks and settings. It gets my creative juices flowing and makes me want to sew all day. If you have been quilting a while, you know that inspiration is a very necessary addition to your quilting. This book certainly gives that. If you are a newer quilter, this book should be a part of your library for sure. Lots of easy blocks to try and the more you make, the better you get. This book also has some of the best photography I have seen. For visual people like me, that is very important. I would very highly recommend this book to all levels of quilters.

I just received this book via pre-order and I'm already in love! The hardback book is full of beautiful color photos and a lot of bright modern inspiration. As a lover and owner of a lot of quilt books - this is moving to the top of my list.

Not one to do reviews, but I have to say something about this book.....it's GREAT!!!!! I've looked thru the entire book and everything is easy to understand and the photography is beautiful. I love the way Amy approaches the process like a recipe.....she even gives you a list of what to "stock your kitchen with" (quilting tools). The very first block I ever made was with Amy's Craftsy class and I've been a fan since that day. I've discovered that most "frou frou" hardback quilters books are beautiful, but not always useful....This book is both!!! Every quilter should have this book, especially new quilters!!!

Amy Gibson taught me EVERYTHING! Her 2012 BOM class on a popular website was amazing. I made my first quilt ever, a gorgeous sampler, and have made six quilts since. I am so excited to learn 50 new blocks from her! I have taken many many classes since, but Amy Gibson is still the very best teacher. Her style is a great mix of modern and traditional too-it is perfect if you want to make a quilt that will please both your 80 year old nana and your hipster kid cousin- "Fresh Classic" maybe the best term to describe it.

This book is a dream come true. The blocks are so beautifully explained & laid out, and the photography is gorgeous. This might sound nuts, but flipping through it actually gave me chills... I can't wait to dive in to all of the possibilities! Truly stellar, and a must-have for any quilter's library.

This book is gorgeous! I want to make Every. Single. Block. But even if I never make a single quilt from this book, it's worth having just to look at the beautiful pictures! Even the most difficult-looking block is broken down into a few simple "ingredients" making them all seem so doable. And the samplers are fresh, modern and fun. Can't wait to get started!
