"I believe that the strength of the book lies in its detailed, explicit, and encouraging directions. This is truly a great book for skill building. It utilizes a variety of techniques, including simple foundation paper piecing and sewing partial seams. A CD in the back of the book include full size templates and pattern pieces for all the blocks." --Felicia's World

I feel that the book is very thoughtfully written. I like that there are Intermediate and Advanced level quilting projects, which gives me something to work towards. There's a CD in the back of the book giving templates for all the blocks so you can just print your templates out and start cutting. They don't waste pages giving a beginner level quilting lesson- there are other books that cover that in more detail so best to refer to those books if that's what you need. They also tell you the sort of stitch they used to quilt each project, which a lot of other books don't mention.
I am really enjoying today's Modern Quilt Movement. But there are a lot of books out there, and a lot of blogs. It's easy to throw some bright colors into a quilt and call yourself a Modern Quilter. I think this book distinguishes itself as having more than just some pretty quilts you can copy...although as I said, the quilts are really, really pretty!
***It is known that there are some errors on some measurements of the blocks, and the corrections are published on their websites! That information is on the last page of the book. Mistakes happen, and that should *not* deter you from buying this book!!! ***
This is the kind of quilting that I am attracted to. It's hard for me to say exactly what category I fit into as a quilter (modern vs. traditional), but I feel like this book gives a good representation on how I categorize myself as a quilter. I love modern quilts but have a soft spot for traditional quilts that have been made for decades. In this book, I especially love the way modern meets traditional quilting by using modern fabrics with unique spins on traditional quilting blocks! That is where the magic happens that makes this book so great. The book contains 20 modernized "traditional" blocks, which are broken down into tutorials, and a quilting project for each one (there are 22 projects in the book!)
They include tips on how to construct the block accurately, and explain different ways you can use the blocks to make primary and secondary patterns in your quilt, which looks so awesome! Some blocks are simple piecing and some blocks use paper piecing. Each block tells you what material you need, what equipment you need, how to cut the fabric, how to assemble the pieces for the block, then shows you how to use that block in a project! The instructions are clear, and provide great pictures and diagrams as you construct the block.
The possibilities of what you can make from this book is literally infinite! There are also really cool history tips about the block they use. Three people created the quilts and projects in this book, and each are amazing quilters and artists. The book comes with a CD so you have all the patterns from the book, which is especially handy when you are using paper piecing. This book is a not a book to start out with if you never sewed on a sewing machine, but after you learn the basics, you can pick up this book and get on your way to creating awesome quilts like these ladies! There are projects that start at a Beginner level, but there are also projects for Intermediate and Advanced quilters as well. That is what makes this book so great because you can grow as a quilter as you use this book! I believe this book will be an invaluable asset to anyone that quilts. This book will be a permanent reference book for me. This book is great to have, just for the inspiration alone! I'm in love the quilt on the cover and want to marry it!, isn't it so gorgeous?!! I'm excited to make my own awesome quilt that will cover my bed someday in the near future! Thank you so much for publishing this book! If the authors ever make a sequel to this book, I would definitely buy it!
