09/02/2013
Schaefer (Cozy Modern Quilts) takes but two pages for general instructions on how to quilt before getting to the point: crafting quilts based on variations on the theme of black and white together: “Black-and-white quilts have a boldness and beauty that is timeless,” she writes in her brief introduction. Although there are projects that serve the newbie well, this is not a beginner’s quilt book (instructions for individual projects take no more than two pages). It presents ideas for execution: 24 projects—lap and wall quilts, table runners and place mats—that play with black-and-white (or white-and-black) cotton. Some are pieced (“Making Tracks” and “Licorice Medley”); some appliquéd (the appliqué patterns are provided as pull-outs); some settle into strips; some, such as “String of Circles,” shout with bright circles; some are neutral, beiges or tans contrasting with black, as in “Tile Works” and “Interweave”; and some are splashed with color, such as “Paintbox Circles,” which applies raw-edged (pinked) circles to a canvas of black and white. (Oct.)

Although there are projects that serve the newbie well, this is not a beginner's quilt book (instructions for individual projects take no more than two pages). It presents ideas for execution: 24 projects - lap and wall quilts, table runners and place mats - that play with black-and-white (or white-and-black) cotton. Some are pieced ("Making Tracks" and "Licorice Medley"); some appliqued (the applique patterns are provided as pull-outs); some settle into strips; some, such as "String of Circles," shout with bright circles; some are neutral, beiges or tans contrasting with black, as in "Tile Works" and "Interweave"; and some are splashed with color, such as "Pa intbox Circles," which applies raw-edged (pinked) circles to a canvas of black and white.

Black, White and Stylish All Over Add some high impact, graphic punch to your home with projects from Kim Schaefer's latest book, Black & White, Bright & Bold. This book features 24 simple-to-make modern designs ranging from lap quilts to placemats. These black-and-white based projects are easy to customize with pops of your favorite colors.
March 2014 Australian Homespun Magazine
This book would be a wonderful addition to your quiltmaking library if you’re looking for designs that are, as its title promises, bright and bold and feature black and white fabrics. In Kim’s characteristic style, the patchwork is very straightforward and the projects that include applique feature large simple shapes. That means you can focus your attention on the colours and patterns and make quilts with loads of impact quite quickly. We thought the bed and lap quilts would particularly appeal to teenagers, and the table runners would be stunning in a modern apartment or beach house. Instructions are provided for 24 projects.
