Quilting Wide Open Spacesby Judi Madsen
The projects and quilting designs in this book are practical and inspirational. The "modern" look in quilting really showcases the quilting. This usually means there are lots of large, un-pieced areas of the quilt. Many quilters look for the technical instructions on how to make "modern" quilts; search no longer--you'll find that advice in this striking book with six great projects to choose from.

Some of my favorite features of this book include: information about the type of batting, thread, and fabric used in each quilt, her reason for occasionally using two layers of batting, suggestions for marking designs and filling in the background, and photos of the backs of her quilts. Judi Madsen likes to use thread to match each area and the same color thread on the top and bottom. Since she uses solid fabric on the back, you can really see the quilting design; the back looks as good as the front! She encourages quilters, wanting to master custom quilting, to practice a lot, quilt only when in the mood, and take breaks to just look when needed. Even quilters who own many machine quilting books (like myself) will find new information and inspiration in Quilting Wide Open Spaces.
