    Beautiful quilts but they lack personality, in my opinion There s something to be said for prints as opposed to almost all solids.

    Good book for beginning quilters emphasizing easy graphic designs made with a small number of solid colours and large pieces Nice to see free motion quilting suggestions becoming part of modern quilt books Just a picture book if you are an experienced quilter though.

    Nicely written with very clear instructions and diagrams, including good suggestions for quilting.

    It s a bit hard to rate this book because while the quilts are beautiful, they are not at all my style They are very modern looking And this is the first time I ve heard the phrase improv piecing but I m pretty sure it s not my thing I am a believer that corners don t have to match exactly and other loose ideas that would have many quilters gasping in horror, but I still liketraditional patchwork I also like symmetry, and a lot of these patterns are asymmetrical That being said, the It s a bit hard to rate this book because while the quilts are beautiful, they are not at all my style They are very modern looking And this is the first time I ve heard the phrase improv piecing but I m pretty sure it s not my thing I am a believer that corners don t have to match exactly and other loose ideas that would have many quilters gasping in horror, but I still liketraditional patchwork I also like symmetry, and a lot of these patterns are asymmetrical That being said, there are some nice projects here and I can see quilters with different preferences having a ball with these ideas I particularly liked the color palate of the quilt Mosaic on page 68.Usually I like the little blurbs at the beginning of quilt pattern, but to be honest, most of these blurbs turned me off Not really sure that I can put my finger on why It did really bother me that in the baby quilt section the quilts were either blue with the suggest to make for a boy or pink blurb telling you how much baby girl will love it Come on Can t we get past 1 only those colors for babies and 2 gender typing colors starting the day babies are born

    I actually enjoy all the piecing involved in traditional quilting, so I didn t think a book of modern patterns was going to be my cup of tea Admittedly, I have no idea if I will make any of the quilts in this book, but I found it really inspirational to flip through particularly the all the ideas for quilting the finished quilt tops on a home machine.

    Many of these quilts are a lot of work for something that looks so, well, simple But I enjoy the bold graphic look especially the red monochromatic quilt that looks like a Rothko painting The thing is, one s quilting is incredibly important when the design is so sleek and spare I ll have to get my machine quilting skills up to par before I attempt one of these beauties.

    I enjoy the fresh approach that the modern quilts bring to quilting so this book interested me I found that about half of the quilts had ides pas that I wanted to absorb My favorite pages were P 57 oddballs quilt, Especially the wavy quilting ideasP 157, 158, 160 Cobblestone quilt pattern and assemblyP 257 Don t fence me in patternw

    This book had ideas about quilts with big patterns and usually solid colors It was as if there was only one block on an entire large quilt Beautiful visual displays Also beautiful color combinations Baby quilts were shown with pastels bright colors would be better for those little humans.

    Having just worked on three small improvisational pieces, I liked the author s notes about improvisational piecing The monochrome quilt in shades of red is stunning Otherwise, these quilts seemed to lack the graphic impact I expect of modern quilts Sometimes less is less
