I love modern quilting, and I have a ton of project books. This book though? I didn't like it. All of the projects are composed of simple rectangles and squares laid out in grids. If you're a beginner that's a good choice, but even so I didn't love. I find that I simply cannot get past the fabric choices in the book - there are a ton of browns and earth tones, making the book feel anything other than modern. I did like the carousel lap quilt, but I sent the book back to the library without adding to my sewing queue.
