I’m a huge fan of Kona Solids, great colours and made from quality opaque cotton. This book has 16 designs using the whole rainbow and all thoroughly modern too! Each chapter is a new quilt, with the designers explaining the inspiration behind the design. The first is a fabulous outsize courthouse step designed by Cherri House. Above is Amy Ellis Colour Frame Quilt. All the designs are beautifully written, easy to follow designs and a perfect start for any modern quilter. It also has some more challenging designs that would be perfect for the more experienced. The projects include precision piecing, improvisational piecing and applique.
Above is Lupine by Emily Cier and quilted by Cathy Kirk, just perfect hexs. My personal favourite is Orbit by Jennifer Sampou, a dramatic quilt using an organic improvisational technique and freehand cut circles.
Stacked Blankets by Valori Wells above, was inspired by a photograph of quilted blankets.
