nothing new This is not a bad book, but it’s a disappointment. There are 20 quilts, all pretty much like the one on the cover. There are detailed instructions about cutting and layout, which really aren’t necessary since the designs are pretty straight forward. I was hoping for more insights into color, creativity, process and such rather than a basic “cookbook.” Because these quilts have so much plain fabric, the quilting is a big part of the piece. The author claims to have done all of these on her home machine, and while I’m not doubting her, I do know from my own experience quilting many quilts on my home machine that I couldn’t get the results she does. Yet she gives no instruction or tips about quilting large quilts or designs on a home machine. It wasn’t worth the price of the book for me.

Beautiful modern quilts for every skill level Modern Minimal is a must-buy for any modern quilter, or traditional quilter interested in expanding his or her aesthetic to incorporate more solids, or just more of a modern sensibility into their work. This is a beautifully designed book with excellent instructions and diagrams and absolutely gorgeous photography. I especially loved how Alissa Haight Carlton shows how each of the pieces will look with different types of quilting. It reminds you of what a huge difference the actual quilting can make in the overall look of a quilt, particularly quilts like the one in this book.

Immediate Inspiration I preordered this book, and was SO excited when Amazon sent it to me earlier than I expected! I spent that first evening poring over every quilt, every dynamic, and every detail.I was working on a quilt at the time, with a specific quilting design in mind, but after reading about one of her quilts, I changed my mind and quilted it differently…and I LOVE IT!!!This book is great for beginners and experienced quilters around the world. I can only imagine how my own quilting and quilt style will improve now that I have this book. And I’m not really one to buy a lot of quilt books! I will definitely recommend it to all my quilting friends. :) Thank you, Alissa, for inspiring me and encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and create something beautiful that I love!
