In the interest of full disclosure, I have never made a quilt.  I love them, and own several, but quilting is one of those skills I keep telling myself I'll pick up "when I can find the time."  Susan Beal's Modern Log Cabin Quilting makes me want to find the time. Each of the 25 projects showcased within boasts detailed and accessible instructions as well as lovely color photos sure to make even the most tentative first-time quilter want to dive right in.  I especially love how Beal draws on things near and dear to lend a personal touch to what she creates, such as the Anniversary Quilt (page 95), which she made as a gift for her husband on their second wedding anniversary, or the Winter Woolens Quilt (page 49), inspired by the rustic decor of Oregon's own Timberline Lodge. Packed with projects suited to experts and novices alike, this book has me re-thinking my to-do list and putting "learn how to quilt" right at the top.

Publisher Comments:

If you think quilting is too difficult or too complicated, you're not alone. Cutting hundreds of pieces and joining angled seams can be tough work! But log cabin quilting — an artful and simple way to piece strips of fabric around a central square — is different. From the intuitive construction through the straight-line stitching, this style of quilting is simple as can be.

In Modern Log Cabin Quilting, Susan Beal outlines the entire process from start to finish, including basic quilting how-to as well as extensive design, fabric, and embellishment information. Since all log cabin designs follow the same formula, once you master straight lines and right angles, any of the 25 projects in this book are possible. From stash-friendly designs like the Charming Camera Case to more ambitious undertakings like the Vintage Linens Quilt, there's sure to be a project that will get you into (or bring you back to) quilting!
