Item Description...
Prepare to be inspired. This book shows novice and expert quilters alike new ways of planning, designing, and constructing contemporary quilts. "The Modern Quilt Workshop" takes you through every step of making a quilt, encouraging you and challenging you along the way. YouAEll learn basic principles of quilt design, as well as new technical skills that will make your quilts more beautiful, more durable, and more fun to make.

Never before published, these breathtaking patterns were created to help you learn specific design and technical skills. Want to learn how to piece circles flawlessly? Need to fine-tune your color choices? Confused about how to choose quilting patterns? Follow the step-by-step diagrams and youAEll be mastering new design concepts and innovative techniques with each new project.

Each of the 15 quilt projects shows the level of difficulty, lists the skills youAEll learn, and shows how each quilt might look in different color combinations.

  • Design tips in each chapter teach you what to look for in fabrics, or options for how to quilt the quilt.
  • Measurements and yardage requirements are provided for 4 sizes, from baby quilts to bed quilts.
  • Cutting templates, and tips for using them, are included.

A thorough section on quilt construction and assembly helps even the first-time quilter learn the basics of cutting, piecing, aligning seams, thread color selection, choosing batting, quilting, and binding. Beginning quilters will love the simple, yet sophisticated, patterns that can turn a pile of cotton fabric into a work of art. Advanced quilters will hone technical and design skills, as well as master new techniques, such as improvisational piecing and working with sophisticated color palettes.

Whether you wish to create a treasured family heirloom or a beautiful gift for a friend, these unique patterns will inspire you to try something new.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great information, not so great designs.  Jun 20, 2008
If you are a beginning quilter (I am) then the information and techniques in this book are fabulous and generously shared. Since design is totally subjective you may like the designs, especially if you are trying something aside from traditional quilting. I, however, did not. For comparison sake, I like the designs of Denise Schmidt and LOVE the book "Last minute patchwork gifts" and "Make your own contemporary quilts" far better as far as quilts I will actually make.
 
Makes Me Want To Quilt My World!  Jun 4, 2008
I love this book. I was so excited to receive it in the mail and I was not disappointed. There are fantastic patterns. I want to make each and every quilt in this book! The patterns in the book go right up to the edge of the quilt- making quilts that are works of art- not just a blanket to keep warm. The patterns range from beginner to advanced. In addition to beautiful pictures of the quilts, there are also suggestions for other possible color combinations with the same pattern.
 
Great book!  Apr 11, 2008
I love the designs in this book and the instructions are very easy to follow. I am a beginner quilter and I am not into the look of the old-fashioned, traditional quilts. So this book is great for me. I definitely recommend this product!
 
Are these authors quilters?  Feb 20, 2008
This book is probably my least favorite quilt book! It just doesn't seem like the authors are quilters...although they say they are!
 
Not for the traditionalist  Feb 19, 2008
These folks are quilt-makers from the perspective of designers. They are not about traditional quilts - after all this is the 21st century. Their techniques are up-to-date and modern. Love the 1-step binding and quilting tips. This is a fabulous book for a newbee -- don't waste 10-years of your life breaking away from the "way it must be done". Perfect book for the minimalist quilter. I love all their books because of the freshness they bring to the craft.
