    1. You can love quilts and be a modernist!I love Denyse's style of clean lines and geometric shapes. Such a breath of fresh air from all the nasty froo-froo quilting going on out there. I am a good quilter but gave it up a few years ago because my tastes are more contemporary. I've been picking it up again lately, due in part to the inspiration from this book. What a Bunch of Squares is my favorite quilt in this book that I am going to make, maybe in just a throw size though.I would've given this b [...]


    2. This book is not just for quilters, but for crafters in general. Many great gift ideas including: coasters, bags, pillows, and quilts. Very modern styles! Totally recommend as an idea sparker.




    3. Denyse Schmidt is my favorite modern quilt designer. That said, I think her Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration: 20 New Designs with Historic Roots is a much better book in terms of showcasing her particular talents and aesthetic.This book isn't bad per se, it's just not focused. There are highly advanced projects next to cutesy hand-sewn toy projects that anyone could do, which meant this title isn't practical as either a quilting text or a design text. I really like some of [...]


    4. Denyse Schmidt seems to be on a mission to singlehandedly get young people interested in quilt making. Her designs are simple and elegant and have interesting color combinations. The emphasis is not on matching points precisely, but making quilt projects with a lot of movement and fresh color choices. She also has a variety of different projects, one of which made me think that I actually could make a tote bag. Her writing style is fun. While some of the directions are a bit confusing, I think a [...]


    5. I have to admit that I haven't made anything from this book yet since I'm still working on my quilt with Asian fabrics. I however have a collection of Japanese indigos and tea-dyed muslin ready for her string quilt. I honestly want to make everything in the book. I used to work in a quilt shop and this book made some of the ladies there uncomfortable. Denyse's modern aesthetic goes against many conventional ideas in quilt-making. I found it refreshing that she mostly uses solid fabrics to show o [...]


    6. Maybe you are like me and like contemporary or modern country design and want to make a quilt. Well this is perfect. No ugly fabrics, or amish designs. Very contemporary and graphic designs. And although denyse gives no guidance once you've got the quilt sandwich basted together, at that point, you feel like a superstar because you are essentially looking at something close to a finished product. Besides, get yourself a walking foot for sewing machine and you are good to go. There are also small [...]


    7. I thought the best part of the book was the first section where she talks about how she does things - pieces, quilts, etc. Very straight forward and got the point across in a very different way than other quilting books which are so technical as to be confusing. This would be excellent for someone starting out. The book itself was more valuable to me as a 'foster of ideas' than to make her quilts, which are cool, but are very much hers. It's a gorgeous book quality-wise and I'll definitely buy i [...]


    8. Not my favorite of Denyse Schmidt's books thought I'm loving her book on traditional quilts made modern (will post that review later), but need to post my review of this book so that I don't check it out again from the public library. If you're brand new to sewing and are looking for simple and easy projects to make in a day or an introduction to what quilting is and how to incorporate that kind of stitching into functional, everyday objects like the Zigzag Bag or a scrap wrap, muffler, apron, o [...]


    9. Adding a review as notes to myself:Very well done book with clear intro to quilting for the beginner. I appreciate her aesthetic but it isn't mine. I've never really made a minimalist quilt and although I could see making one, I don't think I'd need this book to show me how, but I've also been quilting for 25 years. Overall, a pretty book that doesn't need to sit on my bookshelf any more. Hopefully it will make a secondhand bookstore shopper happy!


    10. I actually sat down and read this book cover to cover. I think there is a ton of inspiration in it as well as practical knowledge about quilting/sewing.Perhaps if I had more experience with quilting I would have skipped a lot of it, but I have sewn just enough to understand what Schmidt is talking about and be able to pull new tidbits and tricks to make my work better. I love her style and I would make 95% of the projects she has in this book.


    11. This is a great book for a beginner quilter that wants to learn how to make quilts with a modern twist. It gives in depth information on tools and techniques that will help you get started. I checked it out from the library since there are so many books on quilting, but I will definitely buy this one.


    12. I love this book! Great instructions and tips on quilting,nice photos and clear directions. Great array of projects from simple little pieced projects to an entire quilt, including wearables and crafts. I personally love the Scrap Wrap scarf, the coasters, the Three Faces of Steve stuffie, and several of the quilts. A great addition to a Modern Quilter's bookshelf!


    13. I'm ready to leave behind my editorial career and librarian aspirations for a career of quilting after reading this book. I enjoyed piecing together patchwork quilts when I was younger, but left the hobby behind as "old-fashioned" as I grew older. This book revived my passion and made me look at quilting in a whole new way.


    14. As a novice quilter, I found this one to be inspirational and super easy to use. I've made a couple versions of flying geese (one crib size, one queen size that is nearly complete) and will keep making more based on some of the other patterns. Highly recommended!


    15. I love the designs in this book, but I do not love that the patterns have to be blown up to huge sizes only done by special order at the copy shop! :)It has lot's of good quilting fundamentals for the beginner like me.


    16. This book is full of beautiful pictures and ideas. However, many projects involve a fair amount of hand sewing, which I just don't believe in. I made one quilt from the book as well as a set of coasters. They were time consuming, but look great, if I do say so myself.


    17. Got this book from the library and I love it!!! It is a perfect inspiration for the kind of modern simple quilts that I am attracted to. I am in the process of making one now that is a take off of one in this book. Wish me luck.


    18. I've had this book for years. It's full of awesome projects that are explained in easy to understand way as long as you have at least a basic understanding of quilting. Still haven't gotten around to making my quilt, but hopefully this summer I will!


    19. Everything old is new again: not since the 60s have I seen so many patterns for aprons and cushions, with a Marimekko influence on colors and fabric choices. Nicely done if you like this kind of thing.


    20. I like the end result of the projects, but think that strip piecing would be better for most projects than using the templates. Either the goal is to make quilts just like hers or to get you to buy the book for the templates.


    21. I wish I had more time to do some of the projects in here. This is on my wish list to own! I love her clean lines and geometric shapes. She also has a range of projects that include quilted cards! Denyse Schmidt Quilts


    22. I'm not super excited about most of what is in this book, but there are a few quilts that caught my eyeat I'd love to try out once I learn free-motion quilting: A day at the beach (109); Flock of triangles (113); the big zig (141). She uses really fun colors.



    23. I love the projects in this book, especially the modern take that Schmidt has from some more traditional quilt patterns.


    24. One of the first craft book I HAD to buy. I read it obsessively for about a year. I've made a Steve, made my interpretation of a scarf p.57, and drooled over her design and colour sense.



    25. i didn't like the instruction part of this too much, some of the quilting patterns were nice tho, very clean and modern looks.


    26. My favorite all time quilt book. No ducks with bonnets or Kountry Kitchen type quilts. Slightly wonky and totally doable.
