As a lapsed quilter, knitter and stitcher, I feel I have a good handle on how to books and which ones are well written and worth purchasing. I have a few coming up for review, so if that is your thing, watch this space.
Modern Patchwork Quilting is a book for an experienced beginner or better quilter. The projects are decidedly modern in feel, which can be difficult patterns to find. The book features 24 projects, about half of which are quilts and half which are other types of projects for the home such as tote bags and table runners. There is even a yoga mat. Not sure that is a wise choice of time, however, it’s there if you want to go all natural yoga mat.
The book claims to be good for beginners, which I feel is misleading. This is not a book for beginner quilter, but for quilters who have some experience with piecing, cutting, knowledge of fabrics, tools, etc. , it could be overwhelming. For those with quilting experience, however, it would likely offer lots of inspiration.
There are some nice patterns, some which are confusing to me, an experienced quilter.
Thanks to #NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
