Title: Lucky Spool's Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making - From Color to Quilting: 10 Design Workshops by Your Favorite Teachers Author: Editors at Lucky Spool Publisher: Tauton Press Inc. / Lucky Spool Media Published: 6-18-2014 Pages: 192 Genre: Crafts & Hobbies Sub-Genre: Quilting; Needlecrafts & Textiles; Reference; ISBN: 9781940655000 Reviewed For NetGalley and Tauton Press Inc. Reviewer: DelAnne Rating: 4.5 Stars A basic text-type book for those like myself that consider themselves beginner and novice quilters. I love quilts and watching them being made, but am a very slow quilter myself. I can remember my grandmother teaching me the basics and the ladies in her circle showing me different patterns and themes. Unfortunately being slow and time consuming I became involved in other medians instead, but my love never faded. Now later in life I have begun spending more time on the craft. "Lucky Spool's Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making" has helped reteach me many of the things I had buried in my brain and taught me a few new as well. Although the more experienced quilter may find little of value in the book I found it most helpful. If you know someone just beginning to quilt or if you yourself are just starting, you may want to keep this book handy. My rating of "Lucky Spool's Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making" is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

First, let me start off by saying I am NOT a quilter and am barely a beginner sewer. I'm obsessed with quilts, love looking at them & dreaming of making them, but I haven't made the plunge - yet. I was hoping that this book would help push me into quilt making; unfortunately, it's just not written for a beginner. That's fine; there should be books out there for every level of skill for every craft, and that's a good thing! I didn't feel the quilts were terribly modern; most of them were things I'd seen before on pinterest, the net, etc. - yes different colors/fabrics but the same basic design. The cover isn't appealing (another reason for the 3 stars). I didn't particularly find the photos amazing, either; I expect photos in a craft book to motivate me into making the projects, and these photos didn't do that for me. All in all, I just was disappointed with the book. - I received a review copy from netgalley in exchange for my honest views and was not paid for my review
