"There's a greater diversity of styles than in the typical modern quilting collection...the tips for sewing more unusual angles and forms that will be most useful. There's an abundance of substance in this debut, and modern quilters will relish the mix of styles and projects." --Library Journal
"I seldom pick up a book and find more than 2-3 projects in the book that I just need to make. This book offers so many choices that meet my design aesthetic. The projects are well made to show off their modern design elements--each project highlights the design elements, the color, and the quilting choices." --Factotum of Arts
"I felt compelled to make not just one item using her beautiful designs but TWO. In reality it was hard for me to pick from the gorgeous patterns featured and I am sure there will be more to come." --Entropy Always Wins
"Nancy's book, Quilting From Every Angle, is a true reflection of her style and is consequently one of my favorite quilting books ever. I do love a good quilt book but in truth they are normally lovely eye candy full of wonder but with maybe 1-2 projects that I would actually want to make. Quilting From Every Angle is full of quilts I want to make...every single one of them.... Not only is the book full of quilts that I would love to make but it is a great resource too." --Karen Lewis Textiles
"I really enjoyed reading about the inspiration from each one as well as the opening chapters on technique. There are so many unique designs that range from fairly straightforward to more complicated and challenging. I really enjoyed all the thorough diagrams within the instructions, there are many for each pattern, so it’s really nice to have a visual to go along with the written instructions." --Noodlehead
"There's a great chapter on finding inspiration and developing your own style and designs. My favourite piece of advice from this section is 'don't be afraid of mistakes', oh yes, very good advice." -- Wooden Spoon Quilts
"Guy's it's just good. SO so good.” --Rad & Happy
"Full of eye-catching geometric designs, the book gives you lots of options for making a quilt that makes a statement... It's a beautiful book and a wonderful addition to your quilting library!" --Ellison Lane
"Everything she makes is modern and edgy and she has this amazing talent for balancing color and pattern to create movement and structure in her quilts." --Holly Goes Quilty
"From the moment I got my hands on Nancy Purvis' Quilting from Every Angle, I was mesmerized!" --Soulful Eyes
"It's a book full of fantastic patterns--all modern and angular, and full of vitality." --Red Red Completely Red
"[T]o be honest it took me a long time just to figure out which quilt to make because there were so many I loved!" --Bijou Lovely

The cutting instructions are lengthy so I would place this in a more advanced beginner/intermediate category as organization and precise piecing are important with most, if not all, of the designs.
The only negative with this book is that you never see the full quilt. She does provide the block layout in its entirety but for some quilts that is not enough. The medallion quilt is one such quilt that would have been great to see with the C+S fabrics.
The designs are fun, and the patterns are explanatory, but it's a HUGE disappointment that there are so many errors in the printing of a pattern book--quilting is an exact science, and measurements are at the core. I do recommend these designs--they are fun to play with. Just be sure to visit [...] for the corrections so you are not wasting fabric or time!!
