Urban Views review

Image

Urban Views published by Stash Books and written by Cherri House picks up where City Quilts left off.  Whether simple or more complicated, the quilts are all made in Kona Solids and brilliant for a new or more experienced quilter.  In the book there are 12 quilt patterns, although there are lots of tips and ideas so everyone can personalise their quilt design and make them unique.  Cherri shows how to use a colour wheel to balance colours, whether you go for complementary, monochromatic or a dolly mixture.

Electric City lets diagonal images crisscross the lightning in a thunder storm.

At the back of the book there is a section called Useful Techniques and this is invaluable, notes on pressing, rotary cutting, construction and pinning to get the best finish to every quilt.  Tips on boarders, backing, batting, basting and quilting.  All the quilts throughout the book are professionally quilted by Angela Walters.  I really enjoyed this book and the tips and information make it a very good all round quilting must have and if your like me and love instant downloads there is a kindle version.
