Book Description

Be fearless with your free-motion quilting! This intermediate-level guide is filled with 92 modern quilting designs for borders, blocks, and fillers—many are continuous-line. These fun, freeform shapes and lines give an imaginative spark to any quilt. Pebbles, waves, vines, and finials are just a few things that inspire Bethany Pease’s hip and doodly designs. Quilting diagrams show you how to put designs together for the best effect. Bethany runs a long-arm business and doodles every chance she gets. She’ll also show you how to spot interesting patterns wherever you look to translate into your quilting.

Product Description


Once you have read The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker, 12 Quilt Projects Elizabeth Hartman's first book, you will have all the basics you need to begin quilting and to progress to an intermediate level. Once you feel you are at an intermediate level, than I would strongly encourage you to check out Modern Patchwork: 12 Quilts to Take You Beyond the Basics. The title could not be more accurate for this book, it will take you beyond the basics. One of the most important things about Elizabeth's books (and the key thing that sets her apart from others) is that with each pattern she includes a design for the quilt backing. If you have spent anytime reading beginner quilting books you will see that most often the patterns only include directions from the quilt top, leaving you with no clue what to do on the back. Even now, as an intermediate quilter, I am sometimes stumped on what to do on the backs of my quilts. Also with each pattern, she includes alternate ideas for fabric options, which can really help you step out and make the quilt your own. The 12 Projects in this book all use different techniques so you will learn a ton! I love this book and can't wait to make all of the projects. --Alyssa Lichner; 07/06/12

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 23 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book in the hope of having an additional source book containing interesting designs to create free motion patterns on quilts and textile art pieces. What I got was a book of very poorly drawn swiggles, childish flowers, loop the loop with a line drawn through the middle of them and very bad triangular lines with squares mixed together. It's the worst collection of free hand doodles I have seen published!!! I am stunned this book was accepted for publication specially under the term of "modern quilting designs"!!!
I gave it 1 star instead of zero star as the author put in the first chapter "design inspiration". This consisted of a pile of logs, a cats face, leaves of a plant, curled up fern, Indian design necklace, a dried up fallen over non discript plant and a derelict stone building. All the pictures were black and white, I assume the author is trying to get the viewer to pick out shapes in mono tone,(I personally find its easier to view shape, and texture in colour). I think It's better to teach people to recognise different texture, line and form in colour, as the student when they go out to explore themselves will be viewing everything in colour to start off with, if they wish to switch to mono tone, they can. Some purists may say black and white photography gives a better feeling of depth and unclutters the subject with colour. If that is the case, explain this to the reader. Better still do the 8 photos (that's all the photos in total) in black and white and next to it the same in colour??? I do agree taking shape and form from nature and objects all around you is the key of getting excellent ideas for design. I did like 2 pages of the medallion boarders.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing doodles.... 8 Dec. 2012
The last reviewer covered the disappoints in this volume in detail. Consequently, I will not repeat these.
I felt that this was a volume of not very well executed doodles in heavy black marker. If you're looking for free motion quilting guidance or inspiration have a look at Leah C Day, Don Linn, Hari Walner,Laura Lee Fritz or for more traditional quilting Pepper Cory, Barbara Chainey and Helen Squire (to name a few...)

For design inspiration and or sketchbooks I'd suggest Creating Sketchbooks for Embroiderers and Textile Artists: Exploring the Embroiderers' Sketchbook by Kay Greenlees.

Save your money. Don't buy this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless 16 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a waste of money. I don't know how anyone has the nerve to publish this useless book of doodles. A friend has taken it for a child to use it as a colouring book!
