Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you've ever thought, for even a moment, that you'd like to explore improvisational piecing techniques, then this is a must-have book for you. And, if you haven't thought about exploring improvisation, then this book is still for you. Why? Because it is so crammed full of eye-candy that you'll wonder why you haven't yet played with this process." - Malka Dubrawsky, author, Fresh Quilting

"Jacquie and Katie are right up there as two of my favorite quilters and bloggers. This book is absolutely gorgeous, right down to how it feels in your hand (something I find weirdly important!)." - Ashley Newcomb, FilmintheFridge.com

"What we really like about this book is this duo's deep respect for traditional quiltmaking and their oh-so-true advice to master the foundational techniques for making quilts in order to better manipulate them for your improvisational masterpieces." - Generation Q magazine

"When it comes to modern quilting, I have a whole lotta opinions! I feel pretty strongly that it's a specifically definable aesthetic movement. I think that modern quilting is waaaay more about design than it is about using a specific a line of fabric or currently on trend color combos. And in my opinion, this book, is really and truly an example of modern quilting." - Alissa Haight Carlton, author, Modern Minimal and Block Party: The Modern Quilting Bee

"Jacquie and Katie are two women who I so greatly admire and am in awe of. Both of them in their own way have sparked a flame in me like only a few others have." - Monica Solorio-Snow, TheHappyZombie.com

"Page after page of gorgeous quilty goodness." - Rashida Coleman-Hale, author, I Love Patchwork and Zakka Style

"It's fabulous! Thoughtful and approachable instructions for a variety of improvisationally-pieced quilt projects." - Elizabeth Hartmann, author Modern Patchwork and The Practical Guide to Patchwork

"I really cannot recommend this book enough... for me it has hit a new standard as far as quilting books go." - Amber Carrillo, One Shabby Chick

"These ladies know how to TEACH what they know. The extensive step-by-step diagrams are impressive. No detail left behind. Sometimes all the elements of a book come together in such a way that the end result is nothing short of spectacular." - Kathy Mack, Pink Chalk Studio

"A book that is truly a work of art, that clearly speaks to the modern quilting community!" - Angela Waters, author, Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters

"Refreshing and invigorating." - Rita Hodge, Red PepperQuilts.com

"Amazing projects." - ewMamaSew.com

"There's just the right, hard-to-find mix here. Enough support, tips, technique and design to give you confidence and skills, plus improvisational tools to give you freedom in your quilting approach." - SewMamaSew.com

"One thing I've come across again and again when teaching others or just doing a casual sewing day, is that lots of people are (dare I say?) s.c.a.r.e.d or simply say they 'don't know how' to do improv. So if you've ever found yourself saying those words, this book would be a great addition to your sewing book library." - Penny Layman, Sew Take a Hike

"So many beautiful ideas, packed into one gorgeous book." - Susan Beal, author, Modern Log Cabin Quilting

"Jacquie and Katie talk the reader through innovative techniques that, to me, represent what the modern quilt movement is all about. If you've ever seen a quilt that has gorgeously crazy piecing that seems like it would be impossible to do, then this book can break it down for you and expose the mysteries behind it." - Blair Stocker, Wisecraft
