Monday Book Club

Alissa Haight Carlton is the founder of "The Modern Quilt Guild".
Her first book was a collaboration called
"block party, The Modern Quilting Bee"
I loved it....and if you haven't taken a look at it I would suggest you find
a copy and take a look!

Her newest book "Modern Minimal" provides you with 20 Bold & Graphic
quilt projects to make you very, very, happy quilters.

These quilts are built using beautiful solids & large area's of open negative space.
Unlike traditional quilts which are built a block at a time, these creations
are built as a whole.  The piecing is all straight line, with ideas for quilting
which will add dimension and texture.

I really enjoyed the layout, instructions & photos.
If you are looking for some striking & quickly sewn projects
you will want to give this a look.
