Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Rectangles

Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Judy Turner & Margaret Rolfe

It always amazes me how you can take a simple shape & build an entire quilt collection rich in color, pattern & design based solely on one particular shape.

This book concentrates on the rectangle, So how versatile is the rectangle?
You will be amazed!  This book really got my creative juices flowing!

You will find a section on color theory & using key elements to achieve your desired result.
Then there is a section on designs using rectangles, individual blocks and their reoccurring patterns when placed in a variety of block layouts. 
I found this extremely exciting & helpful in designing my own creations.

Then you move on to the project section where block construction is covered as well as quilt construction, then lastly the specific quilt projects designed to make a completed quilt from a particular design.  There are 15 projects in the book & a million more from your own creation. 

Take a look at this book as a foundation for your quilting library.

Modern Designs for Classic Kelly Biscopink & Andrea Johnson

This book is so great for the newer more modern quilter who longs to tackle those traditional quilting patterns while adding their modern twist through fabric choices.

One of the most exciting aspects about this book is in the very detailed instruction in the front of the book.  it covers each technique you will need to know to complete each project.

Disappearing 4-Patch, Flying Gees, Postage Stamp, Spider web, Log Cabin, Hexagons, New York Beauty, Dresden Plate, are a few of the things you will learn.  12 Traditionally inspired patterns.

I would highly recommend this well designed, very informative book.  The bonus is your going to want to make each and every project in the book......
Now from a book reviewer/collector like me, How often does that happen?

Sweet Celebrations by Moda Bake Shop Chefs
So I am stuck in the airport trying this post from my experience;/
If it seems this review is short & sweet!
I love the variety of projects in this newest book. It has a little something for special occasions all year long. You will notice quite a few Utah grown contributors. I especially love Amy Smarts "Fathers Day" wall hanging.  Mods puts together a quality book for a successful experience whether you are a novice or a pro.!  Such a value for over 35 different projects.
Do yourself a favor & treat your sweet tooth to a copy!
