If you've been quilting for years, you'll probably find that books on block design are somewhat re-hashes of one another. This book is a whole new take on the subject with a large selection of 12" blocks presented in retro fabrics or with a splash of novelty fabric that you might not have thought to incorporate.
HOWEVER I did feel some of the blocks were just too basic to merit inclusion. Also although some of the designs are described as being striking when repeated over a large area, there is no illustration to help you envisage it.
Nonetheless it makes you think about patchwork in a new way, and is a useful addition to your library.
NB Just started making a block entitled 'on the plus side' by Emily Cier (the jigsaw-look one on cover) and realised 4 rows in that the measurements given are all wrong so have had to re-do it to my own dimensions.

This is an excellent book full of fabulous ideas for modern quilt blocks. There are a staggering range of block styles including unusual pleated blocks, stylish paper-pieced blocks, traditional cathedral window blocks, and designs that include embroidery and appliqué, in short, something for everyone. The designs range from very simple, beginner's blocks to more complex blocks and all come with clear instructions and templates. If you are looking for inspiration for a quilt project or searching for blocks to choose for a quilting bee you will certainly be able to find a wonderful design in this book. The book shows only the blocks but I would love to have seen examples of them made up into quilts.
My favourite blocks included Three Wishes, Megan's Star and Windmill. If you are feeling inspired you can even join the Modern Blocks Quilt-Along over at Seamed Up [...]
I would highly recommend this book; it is a really useful resource, full of inspiration for the modern quilter.

By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER on 12 Feb. 2012
Format: Paperback
99 contemporary quilt blocks from designers - that's something to get your teeth, or should I say needle into. I liked Arrowhead by Wendy Hill, Envy by Angela Pingel and top three faves are Exuberant by Susan Brubaker Knapp, Stone Cathedral by Heather Bostic and Feathered Friend by Melissa Crow. If you are looking for quilt block ideas, this is for you. From pinwheel to whimsical, you'll find lots you like. Excellent instructions and clear photographs.
