Lucky Spool’s Essential Guide To Modern Quilt Making is a craft book filled with beautiful yet unusual ideas and designs for modern quilts.
Rather than just showcasing these modern and stylish designs, instead the book contains ‘classes’. The clever idea behind this title is that those unable to attend popular classes by well-known teachers will still be able to learn the techniques from the teachers themselves. The lessons come complete with templates, full colour photographs and all the information you’ll need to make your own versions. Topics include how to successfully use colour, improvisational patchwork, modern machine quilting and tackling tricky circles and curves. These are just a few examples of the wide range of lessons so there really is something for everyone.
The book is designed for intermediate quilters and therefore doesn’t include basic instructions and would unfortunately not be suitable for beginners. However if you are not an experienced quilter the books states that you can download a pdf guide including basic techniques from their website. Perhaps once you had mastered the basics you could then revisit the projects shared in this book at a later date.
This inspirational book is packed with information and is definitely worth picking up if you are interested in finding out more about modern quilt-making techniques and designs. Although I’m not yet at the intermediate stage myself I would love to pick up this book again in the future.
