Format: Paperback
This is a real visual feast for anyone who loves bold colours and a fabulous new modern approach to quilting. There are no small blocks or requirements to buy 20 fat quarters, just plain bold minimal shapes and therefore less fabric wastage. The quilts are constructed in larger pieces, not built up in a grid like way, often using the full width of the fabrics. The quilts vary in size from baby quilts and lap quilts to a 90 x 95 inch giant. Some requiring just two fabrics, the fabulous quilt on the front page uses just four. The tips are highlighted and the construction and cutting is visual - which really helps when cutting out. In addition two ways of machine quilting the quilts giving interesting results - all beautifully explained. However, the clear diagrams and well-explained instruction really do help to give confidence. With such an array of Kona solids (Robert Kaufman), Cotton Couture solids (Michael Miller) and Bella Solids (Moda fabrics) , amongst others, there is every reason to buy this wonderful book.

FOR WHOM IS THE BOOK?
A beginner, who knows how to handle fabrics, square them up for cutting, will receive all information necessary to make a quilt at home. The book is particularly useful, if you're still unsure how to work with solids only, as most quilts showcase a tiny bit of patterned fabrics or none at all. If you've heard of the Modern Quilt Guild, but don't know what it's about, "Modern Minimal" is a great introduction to this aesthetic.

THE SECTIONS:
Introduction
White Negative Space: Drip, Oddballs, Broken Stripes, Cell Service.
Colorful Negative Space: Art Deco, Red Square, Pick Up Sticks, Basket Weave.
Improvisational Piecing: Cobblestones, Mosaic, Cluster, Empty Shelves.
Monochromatic Quilts: Mustard, Forest Curve, Hot Spot, Choppy Waters.
Baby Quilts: Don't Fence Me In, Boxes, Building Blocks, Sherbet.
How to make a quilt

THE PATTERNS:
- They are modern. They are minimal. Buy the book, if this is your style.
- Apart from the four baby quilts, all quilts are in the size range lap-twin-queen.
- They follow the same, clear structure: What you need, Cutting, Assembling the quilt top, Making the quilt back, and Quilting options (option 1 and 2).
- The diagrammes for cutting and assembling will rock your socks off, that's how good they are.
- Working with modern patterns often requires stepping outside of traditional blocks; the book teaches you how to tackle the vast fields of negative space among others. Use these skills to draft your own patterns (I haven't found a book quite like this, will therefore soak up all techniques taught here)!

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES:
- The pages are easy to read; not too crammed, nice photography, great layout/typography choices.
