    This is a library book that I will renew as many times as possible because there is at least one pattern, Roller Rink, that I want to make It s a simple strip piecing pattern with the colors reversed on every other block creating a great sense of movement.For each quilt the author offers two alternative color schemes Hartman also makes a coordinated, pieced quilt backing for each quilt.Compared to many other modern quilt books, this book hasof a variety of patterns simple strip piecing This is a library book that I will renew as many times as possible because there is at least one pattern, Roller Rink, that I want to make It s a simple strip piecing pattern with the colors reversed on every other block creating a great sense of movement.For each quilt the author offers two alternative color schemes Hartman also makes a coordinated, pieced quilt backing for each quilt.Compared to many other modern quilt books, this book hasof a variety of patterns simple strip piecing that looks complex, diamonds, schoolhouse blocks, oval applique and

    I love so many of Elizabeth Hartman s quilts One day while browsing the internet I saw a quilt that I really liked and when I tracked it down I discovered it came from this book It s a lap quilt titled Neighborhood It features fuzzy cut birds in birdhouses So cute I thought it would be great in my living room because I could use some of the plum color I want to use as an accent color.I picked out a few other patterns from the book that I would like to make either as a quilt or pillow cover I love so many of Elizabeth Hartman s quilts One day while browsing the internet I saw a quilt that I really liked and when I tracked it down I discovered it came from this book It s a lap quilt titled Neighborhood It features fuzzy cut birds in birdhouses So cute I thought it would be great in my living room because I could use some of the plum color I want to use as an accent color.I picked out a few other patterns from the book that I would like to make either as a quilt or pillow cover I like Metropolis, Roller Rink, and Xylophone and or Escape Artist for a throw pillow.I really liked that Hartman included instructions for each quilt back that was pieced The backs are every bit as fun as the fronts Another nice feature of this book is that she shows alternate color schemes for each quilt.As much as I love all the traditional quilt patterns and I do love them , I also really like modern quilts

    This book is an excellent sequel to Ms Hartman s first book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork It has many of the same elements for layout and projects some easier, simple piecing progressing tochallenging work and different skill sets Luckily for us, she also kept the alternate fabric suggestions at the end of each project along with example photos This little touch really makes the difference for me I love to see what else can be done, because often the first time I see a pattern I This book is an excellent sequel to Ms Hartman s first book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork It has many of the same elements for layout and projects some easier, simple piecing progressing tochallenging work and different skill sets Luckily for us, she also kept the alternate fabric suggestions at the end of each project along with example photos This little touch really makes the difference for me I love to see what else can be done, because often the first time I see a pattern I don t like it, but love it in different fabrics These alternates are a stroke of genius The other genius bit is instructions for completing the back, in case you don t want just a whole piece plain jane backing Plenty of the backs would make a great quilt on their own I found at least 5 projects in here I would love to do immediately, and severalI put on my longer term to do list

    I have struggled to understand the excitement about the modern quilt movement When I opened this book, I begin to see how I could grow to like the patterns and adapt them to the fabrics that appeal to me Hartman s patterns are striking and a bit challenging and I loved her descriptions of why she chose the fabric she did Each pattern has directions for a related backing in many cases I d be hard pressed to say which I likedYes, I will be heading to my bookstore to buy my own copy.
