Beautiful Quilting Book for Modern Quilters I happened upon Elizabeth Hartman’s first book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork, through my work and was beyond thrilled with it. This book is perfect for folks who are interested in quilting, but who have a hard time finding books that appeal to contemporary tastes (I’m in my 30s and most quilting books seem to be designed for an older (or traditional) aesthetic–I don’t mean that in a negative way, it’s just that people in their 20s/30s/40s often have different tastes than those in their 50s/60s/70s).There are a number of things that stand out to me with this book:1. I love the intro chapters on the basics of quilt-making. They’re very thorough and don’t make assumptions about understanding terms and techniques. This makes this book a great one for folks who are interested in quilting for the first time. The publisher has done a nice job of photographing the important steps as well, which is HUGE for people like me who need to see how things are done…

Great book for beginning quilters and those with experience who like Elizabeth Hartman’s style I wrote a very detailed review of this book on my blog, including photos of some pages. Here is the link:[…]Here are some excerpts of my review:Overall, I really like this book. I have followed Elizabeth Hartman’s blog (Oh, Fransson!) for a while now, and I think her style of quilting is very fresh, fun, and “hip,” if you will. I think what I enjoy about her quilts is that her color selections are cheerful, and her style consists of clean lines. Taken together, this results in a sort of simple elegance to her work. That style suits me.As the title indicates, this books teaches the basics for the “modern” quilter. With reference to the basics: Ms. Hartman does not assume the reader has any quilting background or knowledge. This is great if you are a beginning quilter. I think this book does a great job introducing some of the basic skills to a new quilter without ovewhelming him/her with too much detail. Ms. Hartman’s writing style…

I <3 Elizabeth Hartman This book is fantastic! Elizabeth Hartman’s blog and patterns got me into quilting 2 years ago. I was thrilled to find out she wrote a book. This is the best *modern* quilt book I’ve read to date. I never leave reviews for anything at amazon- but this book is totally worth the 5 stars and the review. The patterns are gorgeous. Her thoughts on fabric and pairing colors is great. Buy this book- you won’t regret it! I can’t wait to reference it far into the future. 🙂
