Book Review Modern Art Quilts by Sue Bleiweiss

Modern Art Quilts by Sue Bleiweiss, softback published by Stash Books (C&T Publishing). ISBN 978-1617456817, price 22.99 available in the UK from

This book includes Art & Design, Inspiration, Tools & Materials, Techniques, Putting It All Together, Projects, What’s Next? and an appendix for dyeing fabric. There are 7 projects to make and templates are included. The book concentrates on fusing and quilt as you go. This is a book for absolute beginners. It gives a basic introduction to the elements of design with very basic exercises. The inspiration section is also very limited. There is a good example of an artist statement. However, with everything that is already available on every subject broached in this book, there is a wealth of better information and examples to be found. I was disappointed.
