February 2019 Book of the Month

I've got a new Book of the Month feature, something of a departure from the quilts I've been making lately - it's time for Modern Art Quilts (affiliate link)!

Modern Art Quilts

Yes, I'm going to make an art quilt, something I haven't done in many months, and I'm pretty excited about it!

When I first saw this book, the element that jumped out at me was the black outline around the greys on the cover quilt, along with that little bit of overlap on each corner. That little bit really adds a special little spark. Who knew that something so simple could make such an impact?

Leafing though the book, several more quilts caught my eye, and set my mind whirling with creative ideas - here's some small snippets of a few of the other quilts in this book:

Going in Circles quilt from Modern Art Quilts

Waves quilt from Modern Art Quilts

Fascinating, aren't they? Which would you choose? I think I'll start with a project from the book, maybe one of those above, then go on to create one of my own.

What's even more fun is that I won't be doing this alone - there will be a Modern Art Quilt blog hop of other creative quilters later in the month, with the schedule yet to be announced. I'll definitely keep you posted on both my progress and the hop schedule - I hope you become inspired to make your own art quilt too!

Happy Quilting!
