I don’t quite know where to start when describing this book. It’s unlike any I’ve seen and is a big mix of many things. The author has featured 70 well know designers and quilters in the book, profiling some, featuring techniques and advice from others and featuring full quit projects from others. So basically you will learn lots about modern quilting, from the experts from inspiration through to practical techniques.
It is more than just a book telling you how to make quilts, it gives you history, inspiration, advice. You will recognise many of the names of the contributors – Aneela Hoey, Anna Maria Horner, Valori Wells, Thomas Knauer, David Butler, Kaffe Fassett, John Q Adams, Katy Jones etc. It is like the who’s who of modern quilting! The advice doesn’t just stop at quilting either, there are tips on blogging, starting a business and opening a shop. I think you get a huge amount of information for the price, if you are interested in modern quilting you will love it.
