I am very pleased with this book in general. I am making the featured quilt on the cover at quilters retreat. I like the innovative way the author has used some very old designs. My only beef is that the cutting instruction are painful. Not everyone buys 10" squares, jelly rolls, etc. A LOT of us are trying to use up our vast stash of quilt fabric. So clearer cutting instruction for fabric in general, and more generic labeling of specific fabrics for use in each block would be easier to incorporate for any quiltmaker.

I made one of the quilts in this book immediately, the large Ohio Star. And it was fun to see the new "fabric" I was making out of some combined fat quarters. It has a great look and texture. I used the leftover "made" fabric to make a matching pillow cover. I have read almost all of the book, and the techniques are different from the old, traditional quilting patterns in terms of the piecing. I like the pictures that show the different colorways for the same patterns, and the fact that the measurements are given for different sizes for each quilt design. I learned some new quilting tips from this book.

Quilt Remix by Emily Cier is an interesting book. There are mulitple quilt designs, originating from classic quilt patterns. Each pattern has a chart for each size of quilt, and the fabric requirements and cutting chart. There are a few quilts I really like: The Ohio Star made from strip sets; and Flying Geese made with many, many flying geese-beginning with very small geese and all the way up to a few large ones. Another quilt that I really like is called Pinwheel. The Pinwheel blocks are made into a traditional pinwheel block and then, cut into circles. I can imagine all kinds of things I would like to make using these blocks!

There are a couple of quilts in the book that I just shook my head at: A wonky Irish Chain made with multiple wonky pieces that is labeled for a beginner; and a wonky Dresden plate made with sharp angles. These two quilts seem to be more work than the original patterns, but if you are going for a more artsy style, some of these quilts are for you.

Though Quilt Remix gives instructions on all of the quilting steps, I would not recommend this book for a new, beginning quilter. A quilter that is ready for a little challenge and some interesting effects will really enjoy this book!

Quilting Rockstar & my personal friend Emily Cier is having a blog tour for her new book Quilt Remix!! Emily is one of those people that no matter how many times you tell her she is awesome, she just doesn't seem to realize it! Her designs are beautiful & fresh and she just happens to also be one of the nicest people in the world. According to Emily I sometimes moonlight as the Carolina Patchworks PR Director. I wear many hats & I'm totally OK with that. Emily and I first met in October of 2009 at Quilt Market. I was immediately attracted to her designs and fabric choices. Emily uses lots of fabric from Tula Pink and Lizzy House which are both also favorites of mine. Her first market was a great success and it was clear to more than just me that Emily has a great eye for design.

The book has 10 patterns based on traditional favorites. They are broken up by skill level and the book goes from easy to hard. Each pattern is shown in 2 color ways as well as all the math is provided for crib to queen size for most of the designs. I love that the categories are called Baby Steps, Walk in the Park, and Walking Uphill... Both Ways... In the Snow. The last one is very fitting for today since we got hit with quite the snow storm here in Philadelphia last night. One of my favorite patterns in the book is Storm at Sea. Check out the photos below to see how different it looks in fabric by Fig Tree vs. Tula Pink! Other favorites... Trip Around the World, Irish Chain, & Pinwheel. My #1 favorite from the book has to be Pinwheel. In general I don't make pinwheel blocks but this layout really attracted me to them. I couldn't resit any longer & started making pinwheel blocks yesterday. Emily's chart makes it easy to cut the right number of pieces for the quilt in 4 sizes.

This was the second quilt pattern book I bought, and I considered myself a beginner when I got it. The two main things that I love about this book is that there are instructions for crib, lap, twin, and queen versions of each quilt, and the book also has each quilt pictured in two fabric versions.

I found the cutting instructions to be clear once I read them a couple of times (I'd never encountered the first-cut-second-cut style of instructions before). The book provides instructions for both yardage and precuts, which I really liked since I don't usually buy precuts.

I've made two of the easy quilts from the book so far (the log cabin and pinwheels ones). I love them! The really advanced ones look amazing, and one day when I have the energy to cut eleventy jillion pieces, I'll try to make them. :>
