June 2019 Book of the Month

It's June, which means a new Book of the Month selection. This time I'm choosing an older book, one from 2011, called Accent on Angles (affiliate link).



Purchased many years ago, Accent on Angles (affiliate link) has sat on my bookshelf as one of those 'someday I'll make that' kind of books. 

And now that time has come. Glancing through it, I was struck at how a couple designs had a modern look to them, especially Dragon Bones.



Quite modern looking, right? Makes me wonder who thought up the insertion of strips first:  the author or the modern quilts movement. No matter who deserves credit, it sure is an interesting technique.

So I'm off to gather my fabrics and get started on making an accented angle quilt!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi Susan! Oh - that is a fabulous design. It really strikes me as very interesting. The fabric choices for this piece could take it in so many different directions. Are you planning on making this design or another one from the book? I can't wait to see. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. You will enjoy the process of making that quilt, if it similar to one I made (on a much smaller scale). I followed A Quilter's Table and her Crosscut Quilt design. It is really fun to see how the quilt turns out, so I'm looking forward to seeing yours. Enjoy! (Don't we all have those books that we're going to use "someday"? Haha. Glad you are posting reviews as you use yours. Thanks!

  3. Very striking and already have a collection of thin strips for the job! I'm halfway there! Looking forward to seeing your progress on this one.

  4. Wish I could work with angles and scraps like this, but they bring on a Migraine! Darn! Enjoy Susan!
