Saturday Series: Favorite Quilting Book

Let me start by saying I'm not much of a quilt book buyer. I find they have too much filler, for the most part (I know how to piece, make a sandwich, quilt and bind, thanks; I don't need you to tell me again...), and often don't have more than one pattern I would even have a slight interest in making. For that reason, I tend to borrow books I think have promise from the library, either hard copy or electronic.  If I like it and find there are several quilts that interest me, I'll then purchase the book.

Modern One-Block Quilts by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting is one such book. It's full of the kind of projects I love: limited color palettes, mostly solids, and several pretty blocks that create a secondary pattern when joined together. It thrills me to no end!

Here are a few of my favorites:

Bonner and Whiting break things down into strip-piecing methods and help you create blocks that look complicated simply.

At $9.99 (Kindle edition), this book is a steal!
