Saturday Series: Favorite Quilting Book

Today I'm going to share my love of Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen's book Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts


Several guild members took a workshop with Jacquie  and I really enjoyed her style and quickly bought this book to learn more about it.

The first 45 pages are full of wonderful tips and tricks and philosophy about quilt design, color, caring for your fabric (all excellent for this novice quilter).

And then the inspiration: photos...so many improvisational wonders ready to inspire us all to leave the housework, jobs, and grocery shopping for another day and sit down with our stash to create. (procraftination anyone?)

I am working on a scrappy string quilt to get the idea of how to do this, and definitely plan on making a fractured quilt.

Fiesta Wall Hanging. One of the things I love about this book, and hope to grow into, is the ideas of quilts using negative space more, so many of the designs pop in here because they are not taking up too much fabric real estate.

In my opinion, this book is a must have for your library.
