ImageModern One-Block Quilts by Natalia Bonner & Kathleen Whiting.  Published by Stash Books.

 

 

A beautifully laid out book, all 22 quilt designs are based on a single block design.  So each quilt design could be made with printed or solids and give a new look to each pattern.  The blocks range from simple, beginner friendly to the more advanced.  Therefore, this book does offer something for all quilters.  The quilt designs are all designed in baby quilt size to coverlet size, giving everyone the freedom to make any size desired.  The quilts are constructed using many techniques and these are really well explained with detailed diagrams at the front of the book.

In the acknowledgments both sets of grandparents are thanked, as they helped sew, unpick and repair sewing machines!  It’s always good to hear that even very established quilters need to unpick!
