Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Modern Minimal is perfect for anyone who has been admiring the bold modern quilts that use mainly solid fabrics, but been too timid to attempt one. With a wonderful take on graphic quilts, author Alissa Haight Carlton helps readers get over their fear of negative space on a quilt top. There are chapters on both white negative space and colorful negative space. Her projects feature stylish yet deceivingly simple quilt patterns. With an entire chapter dedicated to improvisational piecing, readers learn how to master the art of randomness. As an added bonus, each of the 20 patterns has two suggestions from Carlton on how to quilt your piece. For those interested in graphic quilts, this is a must-have book."

--MODERN patchwork

Join the modern quilt movement and make simple, yet boldly graphic quilts for your home. Remember that old adage "Less is more?" These quilts make a strong impact with less complicated designs and fewer, less busy fabrics.
--Scrap Quilts, Summer 2012

The Modern Quilt movement is taking hold and is getting the lion’s share of credit for bringing younger quilters into the world of quilting. Alissa Haight Carlton’s book “Modern Minimal” presents instructions for creating 20 beautiful, colorful, graphic and modern quilts. If you have wanted to try your hand at creating a “modern” style quilt I highly recommend you start here. Modern quilts are different in that they are not built block by block as in a traditional quilt. Alissa’s method of imagining the quilt as a whole and using just a few yards of beautifully colored solid fabric allows for fast cutting and easy assembly. These type of quilts provide greater areas for quilting and the book cov- ers both machine and hand quilting instructions. Beginner stitchers will achieve a sense of instant satisfaction because these quilts are put together using the 1⁄4 inch seam allowance and straight edge stitching. No complicated and often frustrating curves, triangle and other shapes to deal with. The basic quilt instructions included everything you need to know to make a quilt, from tools to how to assemble the quilt sandwich and finally quilting your quilt and adding the binding. Each project provides easy to under- stand cutting and stitching instructions as well as two suggestions on different way to quilt the piece. Give this book to someone you know just starting out or treat yourself and add a new quilt style to your quilting arsenal. --The Applique Sociey; 07/10/12

22 Project, perfect for solid fabrics. Straight, strip or improvisational piecing allows you to relax and enjoy the quilting process and create lots of negative space for quilting. Two options are offered with each pattern.

    I was SO EXCITED when I received this book!! I spent that first

    I was SO EXCITED when I received this book!! I spent that first evening poring over every quilt, every dynamic, and every detail.

    I was working on a quilt at the time, with a specific quilting design in mind, but after reading about one of Alissa's quilts, I changed my mind and quilted it differently...and I LOVE IT!!!

    This book is great for beginners and experienced quilters around the world. I can only imagine how my own quilting and quilt style will improve now that I have this book. And I'm not really one to buy a lot of quilt books! I will definitely recommend it to all my quilting friends. :)

    Thank you, Alissa, for inspiring me and encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and create something beautiful that I love!
