Quilting is an ancient craft which has many devoted makers eager for modern and innovative ideas, a call which has been answered here. If you’re a beginner, get started with a simple project such as a seat pillow or some bright coasters and placemats, then practice your skills further with a wonderful color wheel mini quilt, to bring an exciting burst of color into any home. There are full-size quilts which are perfect for more confident quilters, as you can really let your creativity take charge in choosing the fabrics and colors. And don’t forget the reverse—one of Michael’s trademarks is that the wrong side of the quilt is just as splendid as the right side. All the templates you'll need are included and there is a techniques section, as well as clear step-by-step artworks, to guide you. All you need to do is choose some fun fabrics and you’re ready to begin working on these inventive makes.
25 projects, 128 color pages.

The projects in Modern Quilting pack a dazzling geometric punch! The author Michael Caputo, with a background in designing and engineering children’s pop-up books, has applied this same ingenuity to his arrangements of shape and color.  Each project is a delight for the eyes. There are small simple projects for beginning quilters and larger quilts that are more involved to work up to, all with clear instructions. I especially love the Zoom Floor Pillow, the Rocket Boy baby quilt, the Love Hex wall hanging, and the cover project, the Orbie Quilt. Whatever your favorite fabric styles, modern to traditional, they will translate well in this book of 25 fun projects. I’m excited to get started!
