Books on Modern Quilting

Block Party, Material Obsession, Modern Log Cabins, Quilts Made Modern, City Quilter, The Modern Quilt, Cozy Modern Quilts.........I could go on and on and on.

I have been feeling down lately and know that a new book will perk me right up again.  So I have been perusing the bevy of modern quilting books out there now.  So many look really wonderful, and of course I want them all.

So tell me, dear quilting friends, what is your favorite modern quilt book?  Which one do I need to buy?

Ringle & Kerr- Modern Quilt Workshop.
Their Quiltmaker's Color Workshop is pretty good too.

Liberated Quilting II by Gwen Marston, and (can't remember the name) by Jean Wells. My favorite, although it's not "modern" quilts, is Bold Improvisation by Scott Heffley.

Though not a new book, this is one I keep returning to: Art Quilts: Playing with a Full Deck by Sue Pierce. The 54 examples are all excellent examples of thinking outside the box, plus all are stunning and beautifully made. I saw the travelling show at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C. years ago. Enjoy!

My current favorite is Intuitive Color & Design by Jean Wells. I think it is the one LeeAnn was refering to.

Material Obsession quilts are different from what USA is use to looking at. At first glance they may look the same but when you start "taking them apart" or "putting them together" your mind is off on it's own tangent... of course if you want to make one of the quilts as they are present the instructions as there. There is often discussion on how and why they got to the point they did. They being the two authors who started at point "one" and then each did their own thing.
