A few weeks ago Emily Dennis of Quilty Love asked me if I’d like to review a copy of her brand new book, Modern Quilts; Block by Block. I’m a big fan of Emily’s style so I was really excited for the chance to get a peek of her book!
If you follow Emily, you know that her style is very clean and modern. (If you don’t follow Emily you can find her Quilty Love blog here and Instagram here.) I also really love Emily’s use of color and fabric.
This book contains 12 fresh, modern quilt designs. 11 patterns featuring one block repetition and the 12th pattern is a Sampler Quilt incorporating all of the blocks.
The book itself has a beautiful clean, inspiring design with clear instructions and diagrams.
If you like large-scale, fresh modern quilt designs, I think you’ll really enjoy this book. It’s also a great book for beginning quilters. Emily’s clear instructions make every pattern simple and doable, but her overall designs have a look of more complexity.
Here are a couple of my favorite quilts from the book:

Tiled Stars (image from Emily Dennis)
You can see more of the quilts in Modern Quilts here. I really liked the Tiled Star block and decided to make one myself.
I’ve got sample yardage of my next fabric collection, Gretel, on my cutting mat right now and had fun pairing it with a Riley Blake Swiss Dot and incorporating it into this cute quilt block.
Gretel will be available in stores in November!
