    This review is from: Modern Patchwork: 12 Quilts to Take You Beyond the Basics (Paperback)
    Wow – that’s the word I used most when I first opened this book and had a look through – the quilts are colourful and amazing and they all have that wow factor.

    Elizabeth presents 12 modern quilts for the intermediate quilter but even if you’re a beginner quilter there are well written instructions and a whole section on construction basics to help you along the way.

    There are a few things I love most about this book …

    One is how Elizabeth gives colour options for each quilt which is helpful to those who want to use fabrics from their stash rather than purchase new fabrics for a quilt.

    Another is that Elizabeth uses a variety of different techniques to challenge the maker while introducing new skills.

    The photos are clear and detailed as are the quilt instructions. Elizabeth’s introduction, notes on fabric selection, and thoughts on the backing of each quilt give insights into her design process which make for interesting reading.

    While I intend to make every quilt in this book, Glam Garlands and Looptastic are on my immediate to do list !

    This is a visually interesting book and the quilts in it truly deserve the title “modern quilts”. Much of what claims to be modern these days is really traditional patchwork in contemporary fabrics. Elizabeth Hartman’s quilts however are innovative, modern and fun!

    Not all of the quilts in this book are to my taste and, in fact, some of them obey the “less is more” rule. Meaning that I think the back of the quilt is more stylish and appealing than the front. An example of this is the Fire Drill quilt on page 52 and the back on page 59.

    I found the instructions well-written and clear and the techniques fun. I particularly liked the repeated sew and slice technique she uses in her Metropolis quilt on page 6.

    If you’re looking for a well-written set of patterns for quilts that truly are modern then I’d recommend you grab yourself a copy of Modern Patchwork.

    I’m a big fan of Elizabeth’s first book Practical Guide to Patchwork and this one doesn’t disappoint, with all the things I liked about the first, such as alternate versions of the quilts in different fabrics, but with new techniques and ideas and with an emphasis on more advanced projects. The book reflects her evolving style nicely. I’m particularly taken with the use of appliqued circles and curves, a great effect with less anxiety! The quilts are bold and modern, with lots of negative space but still have the friendly, approachable feel you’d expect if you enjoyed her first book. The instructions are comprehensive, so even though the quilts are generally large, the process is straightforward.
