What a pretty book this is I love author Malka Dubrawsky s use of colors in her projects, I was just surprised that she did not talk in detail about color theory or choices I thought it would have been useful and informative since the subtitle is fearless color, design and inspiration That said, ASIN 1596682353 Fresh Quilting Fearless Color, Design, and Inspiration is a real riot of colors The color combinations and fabric mix are right up my alley and made many of the designs pop While the patt [...]
So, the colors were pretty, but I just didn t love this book This sounds trivial, but in several images, it looked liked Dubrawsky s sewing machine tension was waaaay off Page 34 and 93, for example Why would you include something that looks so unprofessional in a book like this The sewing machine cover and needle case were cute The author favors very closely spaced parallel lines of quilting, which, even for me who loves quilting spells unfinished project I just don t have the patience or time [...]
The ultimate modern quilting book Truly fresh I loved the use of color, the textures created in the quilts and the projects Beautiful photos, stepped out instructions inspiring ideas Update Checked this out almost two years after first reading, it s still fresh Recommended for sewists looking to bridge into quilting as there are several small projects for those wanting to test the modern quilting waters.
There are nice pictures to look at and the instructions section is pretty good, but there is nothing here I can see myself making and nothing that is I haven t seen in other quilt sewing books A lot of things seem difficult for hte sake of being difficult, and I m not a fan of improvisational piecing, which is part of why many designs are out for me.
This is one of the first quilting books I ve read that has smaller projects potholders, sewing machine cover, coasters in addition to blanket sized stuff I really liked the intro chapter and the use of colors, but I don t think I m going to make anything from this.
This book has a decent intro to materials and tools for beginners The projects are fine, it s just not my style Good book if you are a beginner or new quilter and like this style of quilting and projects.
I got this book from my local library I only saw a two patterns I liked in the entire book But hey, isn t this what these books are used for Little patterns here and there right Loved the colors used and this is a good book to get from the local library.
4 I just finished a hegagon quilt using the pattern from this book It is a fun book to read, and the Honeycomb Hexagon quilt inspired me to make my own version using pink and yellow vintage linens.
Great pics and directions to make one of these projects on your own, or do what I did, and just get some inspiration.
cannot wait to start some of these awesome modern quilting projects
Whirlgig page 133 to make for Jen.
It has really cute ideas with nice patterns and easy directions I will probably not be going with quite so bold of colors on my projects But they are still super cute.
Didn t love this, the projects weren t things I haven t seen before.
If I could give it stars I would I had to check this out from the library when I saw it The colors she uses are so beautiful and modern looking It makes me want to sew all the time.
