Review by Library Journal Reviews

Goldsworthy, coeditor of the online quilting magazine Fat Quarterly, combines modern quilting style with quick piecing in this collection of easy-to-sew projects. Oversized blocks feature prominently, and Goldsworthy uses bold, high-contrast color palettes to give her quilts extra punch. Several of the designs, such as the supernova quilt, are less difficult to piece than they seem, thanks to shortcuts and tricks such as chain piecing and strip piecing. Reproducible templates for techniques such as machine appliqué, quilt-as-you-go, and foundation paper piecing are featured in the projects. The directions are thorough enough to get a confident beginner through any of the quilts in this book. VERDICT These projects will appeal to quilters looking for attractive, modern projects featuring bold interpretations of traditional blocks. Copyright 2018 Library Journal.
