Last week I had a great book from Interweave to show off and this week…same thing…another great book from Interweave, Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pederson.
Let me just say that I live to quilt…I like some of every different style and each style of quilting to me has a purpose. Of all the modern quilting books I’ve seen, this is real close to the top of the list. To be fair, I think I personally would classify this book as modern/improv and I do like improv quilting…remember that crumb quilt I made??
Back to the book…
There are several really cute quilts in the book.
I love to check out the quilting because there is really a different look to modern quilting and I’d love to give it a try.
I like this barn raising..it would be a FAST baby quilt!!
Lots of quilts in the book have and aqua or turquoise color in them.
This black and white sure is fun.
The quilting on this one is fun too.
With the little quilting I did with my daughter Kalissa over the Christmas break I can easily see that she would really like the quilts in this book. She likes fewer rules and more fun….seam matching isn’t quite so crucial with color and design being allowed to change from block to block.
All is all this is a fun quilt book that I am sure one of you is sure to enjoy….If you’d like a chance to win just leave a comment here telling if you have done any improv quilting. I’ll pick a winner next week.
