Review

The book is fantastic. If you admire quilts from the past but want to put an updated twist to them, you will enjoy viewing the projects and putting your own touches to these patterns.  This book will help you to reinterpret traditional quilt blocks into something more modern. What I enjoy most about it is that it includes detailed step-by-step clear instructions for reproducing the projects as shown as well as how to make them your own.  This is a must have for your quilting library.
