Product description


Jan 12 "Modern Blocks" compiled by Susanne Woods is the second Stash Book I would like to recommend to anyone that collects quilt blocks. This book contains 99 quilt blocks from today's most popular modern quilters. Many of the blocks are designed around your favorite old standby blocks, they just have a contemporary twist. The blocks include pieced, appliqued and embroidered designs and are perfect for your novelty, designer or solid fabrics. All the blocks in the book are 12" and are beginner-friendly with complete cutting instructions. If you collect quilt blocks you will definitely want to add this book to your block library. * Applique Society, The * Mar 12 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. * Karen Platt * Mar 12 At last someone has brought together a collection of 12in blocks created in what has become known as the "modern" style of quiltmaking. The eight shown on the cover are indicative: with obivous foundations in traditional quiltmaking, they are new variations, new slands and new adaptations The techniques used cover patchwork, applique, embroidery and foundation piecing and most of the blocks are relatively easy to make. This is consistent with the fact that modern quiltmaking, by and large, appeals to the younger set, many of whom do not have a strong background in needlework and sewing. The blocks are all shownat 50 per cent of actual size, with diagrams included where necessary. There's no indication of how difficult each block is to make, so novices need to consider the number of patches, the need to match seams and the variety of tcechniques involved to decide whether their skills are adequate. With 99 new quilt blocks to tempt and stimulate you, this book is cause for celebration. * Australian Homespun * Jan 12 Today's most modern and popular quilters have put a twist on traditional blocks with pieced, appliqued and embroidered designs. You'll even find some new blocks that you have never seen before. These 12" blocks are perfect for using your novelty, designer and solid fabrics and would be great for block swaps. Complete, beginner-friendly cutting instructions are included. * Quilter's Digest *
