From the PublisherModern quilting goes small in these pillow projects with a contemporary feel. Bostic, a popular quilting and sewing blogger, compiled the collection, which features luminaries from the online sewing scene. A variety of techniques are included, and the projects range from simple paneled designs that let favorite fabrics shine to intricate pieced creations. Many of the projects take a traditional quilt block, such as a drunkard's path or cathedral windows, and use bold fabric or contemporary settings to make them look fresh and new. VERDICT: Quilters who appreciate the aesthetic of modern quilting will enjoy Bostic's collection
