Our customer reviews

The book had me hooked right from the introduction, where I read that the main rule of modern quilting is that "there are no rules". There are 19 quilts in the book, (each designed by a different well-known blogger), ranging from minimalist to quite the opposite and from a modern take on a traditional pattern to improv piecing. I loved the tips that are often included such as how to sew a smooth curve. I also like the fact that many of the quilts also show suggestions for optional, pieced backings. This is not something Iâ??ve ever done before, but I can definitely see myself trying them in the future. You will also learn something about each of the contributors, as they have all written a little about themselves and you can visit their blogs to see more of their work. The biggest problem for me with this book is how do I decide which quilt to make first?show more
