Product description

Review

The photography in this quilt book is visually stunning and many of the quilt designs are gorgeous. The emphasis is on color, hue, and scale. The authors' design principles are fully explained in detail. It is quite evident that the authors are quilting and color theory teachers by the way they explain each step so thoroughly from beginning to end in the quilt-making process. An excellent book for a beginner who is not particularly interested in quilts that look like their granny made them, although as an intermediate-level traditional quilter, I appreciated some of the hints and refreshers in techniques and color theory. Many of the quilt designs intrigue me and some may become my projects at some point. The Design Notes after each quilt pattern and the three additional color variations per quilt further caught my attention. This book is a classic modern jewel. I was so impressed with it that I bought their Transperancy Quilts book afterwards and was not disappointed. --Donna Keating, July 13, 2012

The inside cover of this book just makes my mouth water. The quilting and the colour sense is tops. The designs are simple but extremely effective and uncluttered. The big question in quilting is - Are you contemporary or traditional? This book is not ultra modern as the title perhaps suggests, it's more good design than anything else. Maybe 'modern classics' fits the bill better. Half the book is on design, but I don't think the authors are giving too much away on that score. I like the size variations and colour variations. Templates are given. 9 out of 10 designs are based on a grid and are suitable mainly for beginners. I'm hooked, I'd like to make just about every one and some in more than one colourway. This is a beautiful book with beautiful, sophisticated and timeless quilt designs but it is over-priced particularly in the UK. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

I love the work of Bill and Weeks - they're modern without being artsy and write such clear directions. This book is great - plenty to choose from and wonderfully written.

I have loved using this book. The authors Ringle and Kerr are introducing the reader to a fresh approach to quilt design. They are careful to fully explain the design process to the reader as well as providing clear instructions on how to make the 10 quilts in the book. It is the only quilt book I have ever read cover to cover it is brilliant. All the quilts are exactly the sort of thing that would look great around the home. There is also an excellent techniques section at the back that would give enough guidance for even a complete novice to follow.

Everyone, from my hip 20 something little sister to my 85 year old grandmother, have been very impressed with this book. I think the diversity of its appeal is testament to how clever and classic the designs are. I would also recommend the authors other books and magazine.
