Product description

As a younger generation discovered sewing and traditional quilting, they yearned for a less restrictive way to express their creativity in fabric. By experimenting with the use of colour, asymmetrical blocks, fabric, and improvisational sewing techniques, their quilts took on a new aesthetic and the Modern Quilting movement was born. In Quilting with a Modern Slant, Rachel May shares the stories and work of 80 renowned modern quilters, as well as the techniques and patterns that serve as the foundation of the craft. With step-by-step tutorials to guide newer quilters, this book offers first-hand guidance on the quilting process and experience.

Review quote

In this collection, writer and crafter May profiles some of the big names in modern quilting and some quilters who are lesser known but whose work is quietly helping to redefine the possibilities of quilting. The book is divided into seven sections, each focusing on a particular aspect of modern quilting, such as improv, color, scale, or a theme (e.g., the personal is political, coming full circle ). The bounty of creativity is inspiring, and the variety of quilts featured will open the readers eyes to all of the aspects of this popular movement. There are some fantastic patterns and tutorials throughout, but what sets this work apart is its emphasis on quilt makers rather than on quilt making. VERDICT May does a marvelous job of capturing a moment in the modern quilting movement, as well as the viewpoints and opinions of the creators who have made modern quilting into an enduring form of expression. This volume belongs in all quilting collections. "Library Journal "Starred Review"
