Ten of the best known and most respected teachers in modern quilt making, many bestselling authors in their own right, share one of their most popular workshops with you. Each class is designed to help you improve your own composition and design choices whether you create your own patterns or want to follow one of the 16 patterns included.
The final workshop is an inspirational gallery of 50 modern quilts that exemplify the tone, color work, and techniques found in modern quilt making today. This is the must-have collection of modern quilt making.
First, let me start off by saying I am NOT a quilter and am barely a beginner sewer. I’m obsessed with quilts, love looking at them & dreaming of making them, but I haven’t made the plunge – yet. I was hoping that this book would help push me into quilt making; unfortunately, it’s just not written for a beginner. That’s fine; there should be books out there for every level of skill for every craft, and that’s a good thing!
I didn’t feel the quilts were terribly modern; most of them were things I’d seen before on pinterest, the net, etc. – yes different colors/fabrics but the same basic design.
The cover isn’t appealing (another reason for the 3 stars). I didn’t particularly find the photos amazing, either; I expect photos in a craft book to motivate me into making the projects, and these photos didn’t do that for me.
All in all, I just was disappointed with the book.
