Monday Book Club

We had double books last week so I don't really feel like this book got the attention it deserved, so here it is again!

TRANSPARENCY QUILTS by Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr


This book and the concepts it teaches is so fascinating!
You will master the illusion of transparency as you work through
the 10 quilt projects in this book.

This is such a great study on color and fabric choices. 
The designs are sophisticated with a soft, graphic look.

I can't wait to work my way through this book. 

The attention to detail is very predictable for these two authors.
If you have followed them at all you will know that they always
produce books and projects of a high quality.

They have been professional quilters and teachers for many years,
they are very impressively published as well as authors of numerous
books. They are also the co-founders of Modern Quilt Studio

Check them out at

And check out this wonderful book!

STOP. GO. QUILT. SEW! by Angela Yosten


The focus of this book is 12 projects for Boys to enjoy!
While boys may be a great target group for these projects,
I think they could be tweaked for anyone who likes
the graphic nature of signs and striped patchwork.

This is a very fun book with cheerful projects all done in
very cheerful fabrics and color combinations.

Full sized patterns are included.  Photos and instructions are very
inviting  You will find pillows, bedding, bathroom, clothing & more.

Combine these projects to make a number of traffic themed rooms.
I think they would combine to make an awesome casual great room,
with an IKEA  / Pottery Barn Kids & Teen feel.

They just make me smile!

Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters

Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters: Choose & Use Quilting Designs on Modern Quilts

I was very excited to see this book come into the store.
With all the buzz about Modern Quilting, it is hard to decided how to quilt
these quilts so they look a little more graphic and edgy.

Picking the right quilting for each top and design is the never ending challenge.
The right quilting can make the quilt.

She has step by step instructions for 28 different quilting designs.
There are instructions for those who will be quilting on a home sewing machine as
well as a long arm machine.

With a little practice you will be quilting your own quilt tops in no time.

I found this to be a very good over-view on machine quilting. 
It is a great reference book to have in your library.

Fantastic illustrations, photos and informational material.
