Remember how I said to you I never post about books but had to make an exception for Quilting Modern, which is one of my absolute favorite quilting books?
Well, I have to make another exception because I am totally in love with Elisabeth Hartmann's new book Modern Patchwork.
I have admired her quilts for ages, actually, I think discovering her blog got me back into quilting and has also given me a more modern direction away from Kaffe Fasset and to a fresher and simpler style using more solids and greys and whites for sashing.
This is probably my favorite:
The quilts in this book are divine and I love how she gives these mini alternative quilts in different color schemes based on the larger designs.
Lots of love,
PS: Once again I have to apologize for the bad quality images. My camera won't let me take any clear and sharp pics and I can't sharpen them properly in PS. I really need a decent camera but can't afford the reallye xpensive SLRs. But I do have a birthday coming up so maybe then. Fingers crossed.
