                                  On: Sunday Morning Quilts

  Amanda Jean Nyberg (crazymomquilts.blogspot.ca) and Cheryl Arkison (cherylarkison.com) got it just right! Sunday Morning Quilts is a gentle invitation to embrace your stash and dive-in to quilt making. This modern look at scrap quilting will have you feeling both capable and inspired.  Delightful stash management strategies are discussed with a collaborative playfulness that feels distinctly as though you are sitting-in on your new favorite stitching circle. Storage solutions, from barrels, bags and bins to hand-made colour-coded boxes are presented with a practical and creative approach as well.
Sunday Morning Quilts defines Modern Quilting with generous amounts of respect and inclusion qualifying all with "the most important aspect of quilting is working with what you like, making what you like". Such lovely conversations are coupled with 16 fun projects complete with instruction as well as encouragement to move forward, modify and personalize modern scrap quilting.
What I loved most about this book?
It celebrates the camaraderie of two quilters (in true modern, on-line fashion).
It is new and fresh with all of the comforts of tradition.
It is practical, accessible and do-able for everyone.
