Modern quilting allows artists the freedom to play with traditions and take liberties with fabrics, patterns, colours, stitching, and the ways in which they all connect. In Quilting with a Modern Slant, Rachel May introduces you to more than 70 modern quilters who have developed their own styles, methods and aesthetics. Their ideas, their quilts and their tips, tutorials and techniques will inspire you to try something new and follow your own creativity wherever it leads.
Industry Reviews

"In this collection, writer and crafter May profiles some of the big names in modern quilting and some quilters who are lesser known but whose work is quietly helping to redefine the possibilities of quilting. The book is divided into seven sections, each focusing on a particular aspect of modern quilting, such as improv, color, scale, or a theme (e.g., "the personal is political," "coming full circle"). The bounty of creativity is inspiring, and the variety of quilts featured will open the readers' eyes to all of the aspects of this popular movement. There are some fantastic patterns and tutorials throughout, but what sets this work apart is its emphasis on quilt makers rather than on quilt making. VERDICT May does a marvelous job of capturing a moment in the modern quilting movement, as well as the viewpoints and opinions of the creators who have made modern quilting into an enduring form of expression. This volume belongs in all quilting collections." -- Library Journal Starred Review
