Modern Quilt Books

Have you read any good {Quilting} books lately?!  Here are a few of the latest additions to my quilting library.

Modern Quilt Books
I love the variety of quilting books available!  I collect quilt books like I used to collect cookbooks.  Every time I go to the LQS, book store or log onto Amazon, I discover another quilt book.  Like purchasing fabric wasn't hurting my bank balance enough...ha!

What's your favorite modern quilt book?  Is there a modern quilt book that's on your wish list?

  1. The modern rainbows book I've been wanting! I saw that quilt the the quilter speak about it at Quiltcon and have loved it ever since. But really any quilting book would be a welcome addition to my crafting book stash, I only have a few and need to bump it up!

  2. I love books, any books. Quilting wise, I'm currently crushing on Victoria FindlayWolfe's books and also Quilt lovely or Sew Organized... I guess I'm making my bit in keeping the economy going!

  5. I'm crazy for books on quilting . . . have a stack about 12" high on modern quilting and just hope, for my wallet's sake, that the stack isn't twice as high in a year. The ones I'm especially enjoying lately are Accentuate the Negative (about quilting negative space) and Quilting with a Modern Slant, which has a ton of information from a great list of modern quilters on all sorts of topics with directions for quilts, too. I never pick it up without learning something, but there is almost too much to take it on except in shorts bits.

  7. Those all look like good ones, and not in my library...I think! I know I have at least two of them on my Amazon wish list! I love when I can get a good review from my quilt buddies before I add to my collection.

  10. I have been checking quilting books out of the library, but I see so many cool ideas, I don't want to return them! I love quilting books not only for the patterns, but seeing how others use color is so exciting to me! The confident Quilter looks like a great book! Joan Werla

  11. I really enjoyed "Quilting: Line+Color" by Yoshiko Jinzenji and for the longest time it heavy in my reading rotation. Now I have so many books that I love reading it's hard to name a favorite.

  13. I love reading all the modern quilt books, but still only find a few things I want to make in them. (And not near enough time to make them). The one I still use most is the long arm quilting book by Angela Walters. (First one). Every time I want to quilt something, I go to it for inspiration.

  17. We all have favorites, don't we? Currently, we have members who are in love with Quilt Talk from Sam Hunter, Modern Quilt Perspectives from Thomas Knauer, and several oldies, but goodies, Liberated Quiltmaking II from Gwen Marston and Rule-Breaking Quilts from Kathryn Schmidt. On the other end of the spectrum, we have people that LOVE Modern Designs for Classic Quilts from Kelly Biscopink and Andrea Johnson.

  18. Thanks to Rene', I am the proud owner of 4 new modern quilt books: Paper Pieced Modern, Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters,Every Last Piece and Quilt Lovely. The stack is really growing now! I think my current favorite is Modern Neutrals, by Amy Ellis. I own a lot of browns and beiges; finally someone has embraced those color into the modern spectrum!
