Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Amazing how the colors "pop" on a black background! Lerlene Nevaril's instructions are very easy to follow. I especially enjoy her technique of combining blocks with "hidden" blocks, which are a simplified version of the original block--makes for a more complex-looking quilt when it's really easier!

    This book has an interest concept, taking regular pieced quilt p

    This book has an interest concept, taking regular pieced quilt patterns and using black background instead of the light ones. In the beginning of the book she show some examples of the same quilt made with a light background then with a black and the different looks are very evident. I lover her use of modern fabrics in the borders to set the quilt off, the combination of these two techniques make the quits REALLY sparkle. It has made me look at dark backgrounds a little differently with more possibilities. I think some of us quilters, think dark background drape but if we open up to the possibility of darker colors we could get what we want. Not only black backgrounds work but I can see dark navy or even dark reds making quilts sparkle. This book let my imagination run and I have a quilt planned which I was going to use a light background but have changed my mind to dark. All the Midnight quits show in this book are striking and would be one to add to your collection. If your work seems to be in a runt get this book and go dark!
