Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

May, a founder of the Boston Modern Quilt Guild, has created an encyclopedia of modern quilting. So-called “modern” quilting labels the latest category of quilting, following “traditional” and “art.” Modern quilting—admittedly hard to pin down, but proudly inclusive—is a hybrid of the other two, resulting in quilts that “perform both a design and functional purpose.” May divides her book into seven sections with titles that reflect the whimsy and experimentation that help define modern quilting, including “A Sense of Play,” “Improv,” and “For the Love of Color.” Within those chapters, she presents modern quilters (“Meet”), such as Angela Walters, David Butler, and Caro Sheridan; offers directions (“Project”) for techniques like paper piecing and for quilts, like Sherri Lynn Wood’s modern t-shirt quilt; and covers history and museums. Sidebars cite quilters’ blogs and places to donate quilts, among other information. Crawls at the bottom of pages define words (“Quilt Lingo”) and blurbed quotes from quilters and their blogs are scattered throughout for encouragement. Like a good host, May serves as an enthusiastic introducer, teacher, and cheerleader. (Feb.) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Modern Quilting gives artists the freedom to play with every element of the quilt, to improvise and build on the aesthetics of traditional and art quilts, and to welcome inspiration however it strikes. Tour the varied world of modern quilting through the stories and works of more than 70 of its most exciting artists. Along with a compelling inside look at their creations, the quilters offer step-by-step instructions on favorite improvisational techniques and quilting projects.
