Modern Quilt Perspectives

by Thomas Knauer

The quilts in this book are very versatile and wonderful! According to Thomas, "Quilts provide warmth, comfort, and protection; they can act as barriers or invitations; they can speak whispers or commands." This book explores modern quilting, and very thoughtful reflections about what it means to quilt.

Techniques: piecing, applique

Not only is this book cleverly written, but there are very nice photos that explain the steps and instructions. I have an emotional response to these quilts, and I love how different each pattern is. One of my favorite quilts in this book is the pattern called, ‘In Defense of Handmade’ which essentially looks like a reproduction of a large barcode; but it’s not just how the pattern looks, I love Thomas’ inspiration: a factory-made quilt from China, and how the word ‘handmade’ has been stretched to be almost unrecognizable.
