An excellent collection of ten workshops and tutorials from popular modern quilters (including Denyse Schmidt, Cheryl Arkison, Heather Jones, and Angela Walters) on a variety of topics. Several workshops explore color, modern quilting methods for using solids and prints, working with circles, and large scale designs. Other workshops focus on specific techniques like paper piecing and improvisation patchwork. The last workshop is a study of modern quilts that shows quilts from many of the influential modern quilters.

All of the workshops are well written and thoroughly illustrated.  Each workshop is written to stand on its own.  Templates are included for some projects.

Highly recommended for experienced quilters looking to try their hand at a new method or technique or for those who want to improve their design skills.
