More than a book of quilt patterns, Madly Modern Quilts will help new and seasoned quilters learn how to use modern quilt design principles and piecing techniques to create contemporary quilts. Included are several quilt projects with detailed instructions--including projects with additional sizes and easy ways to change and customize the design. Carole Lyles Shaw, a sought after modern quilt teacher and designer, provides step-by-step explanations for each project.This book will appeal to all types of quilters--whether you consider yourself traditional, transitional, contemporary, modern or simply a quilter who embraces all aspects of the quilt world. Quilters who might be feeling a bit intimidated about the 'modern quilt rules' will be able to comfortably explore what modern quilting is all about. Included are quilts that a beginner quilter can easily master and more advanced projects that will help all quilters stretch their improvisational quilting design and piecing skills. The book includes guidance on two key modern techniques: improvisationally pieced blocks and two types of freehand curved blocks. After making these projects, quilters will leave with confidence in their ability to explore their own unique vision and make any quilt project uniquely their own.
