As a younger generation discovered sewing and traditional quilting, they yearned for a less restrictive way to express their creativity in fabric. By experimenting with the use of colour, asymmetrical blocks, fabric, and improvisational sewing techniques, their quilts took on a new aesthetic and the Modern Quilting movement was born. In Quilting with a Modern Slant, Rachel May shares the stories and work of 80 renowned modern quilters, as well as the techniques and patterns that serve as the foundation of the craft. With step-by-step tutorials to guide newer quilters, this book offers first-hand guidance on the quilting process and experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real treat - and all the way from the USA! 12. Februar 2014
Von trishthedish - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I sent for this book from the American Amazon website, not the UK one, because I had won an online voucher which was only redeemable from the former site. I had doubts as to whether it would arrive safely, or even at all, across the Atlantic, but it made it before the predicted time of arrival in pristine condition! It is not available here yet, so felt doublely excited!

In fact I first discovered quiltmaking when my husband came back from the USA on a business trip with a copy of "Quilts, Quilts, Quilts!" for me in his suitcase as a gift, in the late 80s, which shows how old I am, 60 next week! Until then, I had made clothes (since a young girl) and some English paper pieced patchwork, then the perennial curtains (drapes), blinds, cushions (pillows) and so on after marriage. I was so excited by that book and sent for a rotary cutter and ruler/mat set via details in the back of the book - nothing like that was available here and no one I knew made patchwork in that way in blocks here in the UK at the time. It felt so much more creative than making clothes following patterns (which were becoming cheaper to purchase anyway) and I was totally hooked. I helped to start a local quilt group in the early 90s, was spurred from that into starting to draw and eventually made it all the way to art school to study Textiles part time (ending with an MA - "Master of Arts" degree) to my utter surprise! I taught Textiles on a degree course for 10 years following that until recent retirement, wrote a "serious" blog and took an academic view of all things Textile.

The point of this long winded story is to prove - quilting changes lives! True, here in the UK art schools don't do much quilting, if at all, they take a more conceptual approach to textiles. A lot of my students couldn't sew, didn't want to sew and were happy binding blocks of concrete or wood together for installations etc. I think the USA takes a different view, honouring actual making skills more, but someone will maybe put me right on that one?

So, it was interesting to re-discover quilting all over again, for myself this time and not for serious teaching purposes. And oh the sheer joy of it - I have bought a new Janome quilting machine with a small legacy left me by an aunt, the same aunt who left me piles of cotton dressmaking remmnants from the 60s/70s. I have discovered Modern Quilting at just the right time; it needed a new invigeration of blood. I like the way its become fun again, relates to mid twentieth century art and design and has a simplicity/love of the actual act of sewing as well as excitement with colour.

As a retired college tutor, and just as a ordinary quilter, I can see where Rachel May was going with this book - it lays out the foundations of what Modern Quilting is all about. A lot of the stuff - quilt groups, etc and little bits of history/touching on important points in quilting history - is known to old hands like myself, but it doesn't hurt to read it again. Anyone coming new to quilting, with find it invaluable. I hope to start up a new quilting group when I move home soon and pass this book around; it is essential reading and an excellant intro to the subject. The approach is sweetly naive at times, just touching on some important topics relating to all Textile forms, but not over academic as to frighten new quilters/sewers away. I applaud her work on this book as I am excited all over again and feel just what I felt with that first quilt book many years ago - the possibilities are endless! Thank you Rachel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen an inspiring book 17. Februar 2014
Von Patricia P Fraser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book is so well done and not just another quilting book. I am an older quilter who has been quilting for many years. I don't do quilt blogs so this opened a whole new world to me of "modern quilting". I found it very inspiring and freeing and have had a great time experimenting with some of the methods highlighted by the author. I think I had become slightly bored with making the same types of quilts. This book has freed me to experiment and feel creative again. Many thanks to Rachel May!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great resource for quilters, whether they'd describe themselves as "modern" or not! 25. Januar 2014
Von mychellem - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
When I decided that I wanted to make quilts, my sewing machine was packed away where I couldn't easily get at it. I spent months hauling home every library book I could find, looking at patterns and reading about different techniques. I'd sewn clothing before, so I was sure that I'd be able to make a quilt. A lot of what I read went straight over my head, but a lot sunk in.

I wish I'd had Quilting with a Modern Slant by Rachel May! This book would have been a great help to me back then. It talks about quilters -- why they quilt and how they quilt. There are tutorials scattered through the book and they're not just beginner stuff. The book tells how to square up a quilt, how to dye fabric, how to piece curves, how to paper piece... even how to design your own fabric line. There are also a few patterns included.

As if that wasn't enough, there are profiles of dozens of quilters including Kaffe Fasett, Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler, and Chawne Kimber (She's the quilter who came up with that F word quilt. I still haven't figured out my reaction to that quilt besides being glad that I never saw it hanging at a quilt show and had to try to explain it to my children, but I do love reading her blog.) and Kaffee Fasett, Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler...

I love that this book tells you to use the sewing machine you already have (if you have one) and any fabric.

If you don't consider yourself a "modern quilter" don't let the title scare your off. There's information and inspiration here that will help anyone who makes quilts.

Disclosure -- the publisher provided me with an electronic ARC.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book for all sorts of quilters 31. Januar 2014
Von beezyquilts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book an exciting collection of stories about people I know from the Boston Modern Quilt Guild, people I "know" online and people I've never heard of but can't wait to learn more about! This book highlights many of the "stars" in the modern quilt world as well as a lot of regular folk doing amazing things with a lot less online presence but just as much creativity and passion.

For those interested in getting started in quilting, there are many tutorials here about basic techniques.

For experienced quilters looking to push themselves further, tutorials like Alice's bias binding will add polish and precision to your work.

I think this book will also appeal to traditional quilters. Yes, it's about the modern movement, but it's more about the act and art of quilt making and is chock full of inspiring quilt designs and inspiring quilters.
