Minimal Quiltmaking — Review by Patty
Overall Rating
This is a process book rather than a pattern book. Gwen teaches you the process of designing "minimalist" quilts, a minimal amount of color, a minimal amount of lines; but modern in a way. Even though these quilts have a modern feel, Gwen begins her book by telling us the history of these quilts, which goes back to the 1700's and the wholecloth quilts. Hearing the history of these quilts alone, should inspire you to design one of these unique quilts! (Posted on 7/9/14)
Informative and inspirational — Review by Kathie
Overall Rating
I very much enjoyed this book. While there are some patterns included, the book is actually about design, focussing on quilts with minimal color, quilts inspired by other types of art, and hard-edge quilts. The large number of photos are inspirational, with quilts completed by Marston as well as students and friends. The variety of quiltmakers offers a broader range of styles, making the book more meaningful to a greater range of readers. I especially found the thought process behind the quilts quite informative.
