“May does a marvelous job of capturing a moment in the modern quilting movement, as well as the viewpoints and opinions of the creators” (Library Journal, starred review).
Modern quilting allows artists the freedom to expand on traditions and use fabrics, patterns, colors, and stitching innovatively to create exciting fresh designs. In Quilting with a Modern Slant, Rachel May introduces you to more than seventy modern quilters who have developed their own styles, methods, and aesthetics. Their ideas, quilts, tips, tutorials, and techniques will inspire you to try something new and follow your own creativity—wherever it leads.
