Quilting with a Modern Slant by Rachel May
9781612120638 Storey Publishing
As a younger generation discovered sewing and traditional quilting, they yearned for a less restrictive way to express their creativity in fabric. By experimenting with the use of colour, asymmetrical blocks, fabric, and improvisational sewing techniques, their quilts took on a new aesthetic and the Modern Quilting movement was born. In Quilting with a Modern Slant, Rachel May shares the stories and work of 80 renowned modern quilters, as well as the techniques and patterns that serve as the foundation of the craft.
With step-by-step tutorials to guide newer quilters, this book offers first-hand guidance on the quilting process and experience.
