This book has by far the best layout and design of any quilt book I've seen (and I own hundreds).The quilts look complicated but they really aren't - and if you're nervous, start with one of the "easy" ones at the front of the book. Each quilt pattern is given in multiple sizes (Wall through to Queen) with a beautiful photo and clear illustrations and text, as well as clear cutting intructions and a table which makes it easy to see how many pieces to cut.The authors encourage you to experiment, and show how each quilt could look in other colour choices. There's even hints on catching any potential design disasters before they happen.This is my new favourite quilt book and I would recommend it for ANYONE - even advanced quilters will find new and challenging design opportunities sparked by this book. 37 of 39 people found the following review helpful GREAT book! :), August 2, 2005 By Brandy Fortune (Altanta) This review is from: The Modern Quilt Workshop: Patterns, Techniques, and Designs from the FunQuilts Studio (Paperback) I got this book along with "Denyse Schmidt Quilts: 30 Colorful Quilt And Patchwork Patterns" and well honestly I got this book just for the free shipping. I can not believe it, I loved this book WAY more then the Denyse book (which I gave 2 stars).The Modern Quilt Workship is just a wealth of information. Great quilting tips, and just really neat projects with great instructions. I started quilting in december, taught myself, having never used a sewing machine before. I am very paticular and like very clear insutrctions. This book is GREAT, with totally ultra hip patterns to boot :) I learned stuff just skimming this book when it first arrived. 30 of 32 people found the following review helpful Beyond beautiful, July 8, 2005 By Elizabeth Saxton "BookishGirl" (Cleveland, OH) This review is from: The Modern Quilt Workshop: Patterns, Techniques, and Designs from the FunQuilts Studio (Paperback) This is the most amazing quilting book. The patterns are beautiful and don't have that country look like most of the others. The directions are very clear and there are suggestions for changes in the designs as well as helpful information on what types of materials work best. I highly rec this book.
