An Essential Guide

by Nicole

Have you been following the Sew Mama Sew series on the Lucky Spool’s Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making? Sew Mama Sew is featuring excerpts from chapters in the book. The latest excerpt is of Jacquie Gering’s chapter on the alternative grid.

I love the book.

And not just because one of my quilts is on page 178!

It’s a great book filled with information on the different types of modern quilting. The book is divided into workshops. Each workshop is designed to help you learn new skills, from using color in your quilt to machine quilting.

At the end is a section called, “A Study of Modern Quilts,” which is where you’ll find my quilt, Helix. Check it out – Amazon will give you a peek inside!

You know the book arrived and I flipped through it and thought, there is Nicole's quilt. I was even going to email you but then the next thing took my attention. I love that quilt and was so happy to see it in the book, which I need to get out and read.

I got it a few weeks ago and have read it cover to cover. Overall I'm happy with it, but my most enduring memory is annoyance at how very poor the copy editing process must have been for this book, I was astounded at the number of errors in it. One or two errors in a book I can handle, but the volume of mistakes in this book simply annoyed me and distracted from the amazing contributors.

And in all that grumpiness of a comment I forgot to say that I had seen your quilt in it and congratulations!
