This review is from: Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs From Classic Blocks (Paperback)
I really love this book. I'm not an experienced quilter by any stretch of the imagination, and am self taught, (if you count You Tube and reading blogs as teaching yourself) and I really didn't have any problems understanding the instructions in this book. I didn't feel, unlike the other reviewer, that the projects were out of my league.
Yes, paper piecing requires printing the pieces and for large projects that can mean quite a few templates, but that is to be expected, and if you want beautiful results, you won't mind!
More than anything else I love the colours used in all the projects in this book. The low volume quilts, the quilts with primarily plain fabrics - it's not only an inspiration for quilt design, but also use of colour. I admit to being a bit of a Pinterest junkie as far as quilting goes, but this book definitely ticks the boxes for design inspiration, colour schemes and all over quilting eye candy! I've got more crafting / quilting books then I care to count, but this book is without a doubt one of my favorites, and I would highly recommend it whether you are experienced or just starting out.
