I look forward to this book every year! — Review by Patty
Overall Rating
This book shows the 18 top winners from the National Quilt Museum's annual New Quilts from an Old Favorite Contest. The Nine Patch block had to be used in the quilts for this contest. The book explains the history of the Nine Patch block. Then each of the winning quilts is shown with information on the person that designed and made the quilt, the inspiration for the quilt, and specific techniques utilized in the quilt. I always love these books. It's amazing to see how innovative these quilters are. (Posted on 4/2/16)
Inspiration from talented quilters — Review by Linda
Overall Rating
The 2015 National Quilt Museum's annual New Quilts From an Old Favorite contest inspired many entries into this year's block theme: Nine Patch. Eighteen winning quilts - made in a wide range of colors, styles, and techniques - and the quiltmakers’ stories fill this 95-page book. Between the beautiful full-page quilt photos, the many detail pictures, and the stories behind the quilts, you’ll find several hours of fascinating reading. (Posted on 5/17/15)
Wonderful variety of interpretations — Review by Kathie
Overall Rating
Every year I look forward to seeing the winning quilts in this contest, because it's fascinating to see how quilters interpret the given block. The winners this year are outstanding, demonstrating a wide variety of styles, with each maker incorporating "nine" in their own unique way. Designs feature transparency, optical illusions, modern elements, and even crazy work. Inspiration abounds. (Posted on 5/17/15)
Amazing original designs — Review by Patricia Mesker
Overall Rating
This book celebrates the top five winners and 13 finalists of the National Quilt Museum’s 2015 “New Quilts from an Old Favorite” contest and exhibit. Challenged to interpret the nine patch block, these 18 quilters created amazing original designs that give a new look to a traditional block. The book describes the contest requirements and the history of the nine patch, then dives right into the unique quilts. Each quilt maker describes herself, the inspiration and design of her quilt, and the techniques used to create it. The creativity behind each of these quilts is a great read – both captivating and inspiring. (Posted on 5/13/15)
