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.
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
- 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.Read more ›

Fabulous modern quilts. I have to say I hate over fussy quilts, but these designs are contemporary and will fit into any style of home. Fantastic!!Published on 27 Jan. 2013 by Ms Gwen Mills
The adult quilts were lovely. I haven't actually tried making one yet, but the instructions seem quite straight forward. I was a little disappointed by the baby quilts.Published on 25 Nov. 2012 by Louise Beatty
