April 2018 We can all dream. In another life, I'd be tearing around the prairies on my trusty steed, sporting a Stetson, with a quilted throw strewn casually around my shoulders ready to turn into an impromptu campfire blanket. In Southwest Modern, Kristi Schroeder cleverly taps into our wanderlust by creating 18 quilts (many using half-square or half-rectangle triangles) that conjure up the colour and evocative charms of the Southwestern United States. A native Texan, Kristi's love for travel and the Southwest began as a child and has spanned vast mountain ranges to the Native American culture of Santa Fe. Together with detailed instructions for making quilts, she also shares her favourite places to shop, eat and explore - from museums and galleries to trails and vistas. Originally trained as a graphic designer, Kristi spent several years as an in-house designer at Neiman Marcus, so her all designs are stylish and based on the scenic locations she knows so well. From the oranges and reds of New Mexico to the whites and creams of the Big Bend National Park in West Texas with its wide open spaces, there's an authenticity about Kristi's quilts that will have you hankering for re-fried beans - eaten straight from the can. * Popular Patchwork * Part quilting manual, part travel guide, this book contains 18 patterns and reads like a holiday brochure for Southwestern America. Even those without the travel bug will appreciate the strikingly modern designs, which are laid out with helpful diagrams and stitching tips - but most of all, the wonderful advice on building colour palettes. * Sew magazine *
