It’s been awhile since I’ve done a book review but I’m excited to tell you about a new book I recently got my hands on. It’s titled, “Quilting With a Modern Slant” by Rachel May, and it includes interviews, summaries or patterns from over 70 modern quilters! Many of those profiled in the book are familiar names, while several of those featured are new to me.
To sum up, this book is one huge dose of inspiration! I love reading quilting books and spent several trips to the park and weekend vacations pouring over this book in detail.
At over 200 pages in length, with literally hundreds of fabulous pictures to look at, this book is quite a bargain! Here are just a few of my favorite quilt images from the book:
And these are just a few of the beauties shown in this fabulous book! Quilting With a Modern Slant is like your own little personal modern quilt show, and I think it’s a fabulous reference for anyone and everyone who appreciates modern quilts.
I will leave you with a quote from author Rachel May, “It’s my hope that the book functions as an exploration of the connections between all quilters and the stories we have to tell through what we make.
“No matter how we define ourselves, quilters forge powerful communities, in which we rely on each other for friendship, feedback, and inspiration. I’m excited about that sense of community, and what we can accomplish together.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself!
