Double Wedding Ring Quilts: Traditions Made Modern by Victoria Wolfe.
So many of us quilters want to make a Double Wedding Ring (DWR) quilt, but somehow just can’t muster up the courage or want to make something a bit more modern. This book will make you forget any concerns you have (quilting or non-quilting related!) and want to try these modern and inspiring quilts. The Forward in the book gives a lovely description about the DWR.
Modern Bee: 13 Quilts to Make with Friends by Lindsay Connor.
Many of us quilt for charities in addition to our personal and commercial work. Quilts for charities are often made when a group of us get together for a “quilting bee”. A quilting bee is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community while connecting with others and often improving our quilting skills. The patterns in this book are designed with a modern approach but based on traditional patterns. The patterns are organized by skill level, so there is something for the beginning quilter, confident beginner, and intermediate. A great book for new ideas and mastering new skills.
Quilt Lovers Favorites by Better Homes and Gardens.
A collection of 15 quilts and 37 projects that have “stood the test of time”. An especially good book for beginning quilters although the more experienced quilter will no doubt also find something interesting. Very clear instructions and lots and lots of helpful tips.
