Denyse Schmidt is one of the leading quilters of the 21st century. Known as a “modern” quilter, she actually draws much of her creative vision from quilts of the past. In Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration, Schmidt pays homage to the quilters and quilts that came before her. Each of the 20 traditional quilt designs she has reinterpreted here (among them are Irish Chain, Mariner’s Compass, and Orange Peel, to name a few) is introduced with a lively overview of the pattern’s history. Instructions are illustrated, templates are provided at full size on a pullout pattern sheet, and a complete techniques section is included at the back of the book.Praise for Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration:"Denyse Schmidt's contemporary art quilts are things of enduring style and beauty, but few fans realize her 16-year career as a textile artist began when Schmidt fell in love with tried-and-true, centuries-old traditional quilt patterns . . . Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration is the artist’s return to this fertile terrain, featuring her colorful and updated take on 20 time-tested designs. Full-page photos of gorgeous quilts full of those bold geometric shapes that first inspired her provide ample motivation, while detailed instructions, a pull-out book of templates, and a section detailing tools and techniques offer plenty of how-to support, even for novice makers." —American Craft Magazine"The book contains 20 traditional quilt styles that look exceptionally modern, hip, and fresh, with limited color palettes and minimal use of prints. To me, it is the best of both worlds—tried-and-true patterns with stories to tell, interpreted by this talented woman who helped define modern quilting. The modern/traditional debate is moot here, which is refreshing and wonderful." —Sew Mama Sew!“It's been 7 years since Denyse Schmidt's first book, and believe me, this new volume was well worth the wait...Whether you consider yourself a traditional or modern quilter, there is plenty of inspiration here, in projects that play with the tantalizing pairing of vintage patterns and contemporary colors. Although Denyse explains the origins and alternate names of many of the patterns, she rarely offers them straight: she riffs off old patterns like Mariner's Compass and Wagon Wheel and strips them down to stark basics." --Meg Cox, Journalist, Author, and President of the Alliance for American Quilts"Denyse Schmidt never ceases to inspire us . . . We are very excited to announce her latest book, the simply breathtaking Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration. Delving back to the traditional styles that first sparked her passion for quilting, Denyse gives these twenty quilt patterns a modern spin with bold, beautiful fabric choices." —The Purl Bee "In this book, [Denyse] shows off a new gamut of wonderful quilts . . . She writes in such a quiet and contemplative way, reminding me that quilting at its best isn't meant to be done in a hurry to crank something out." —Spoonflower.com

The quilting world "seams" to be a place of contention more and more. There are those who shun "Y" seams, and those who methodically stitch them and deem themselves "better quilters". The fact is that you still have a beautiful creation that keeps you warm. Isn't that the idea?

The same goes for the term "modern quilting". There are some that think this means "radically different". Not so. Modern quilting means less fuss about exactitude, new twists , and bolder fabrics. It means larger stitches in quilting the piece, and quick completion. Modern quilting means using your leftovers and scraps as much as possible, those great bold fabrics that you love and want to show off. It means taking the old and making it quicker, off center, and using bold fabrics.

This book illustrates that perfectly. Maybe some missed the part of the title that says "traditional inspiration". The old designs are clearly visible in the quilts, quite so, but modern quilting is NOT about trashing all the old quilt styles and looks, but reinventing them. It is about making them in a week, not a year. It is about simplicity. The fabric is the thing, and it can be just two fabrics to make a stark contrast or all of your scraps to make a crazy , bold statement.

This book has beautiful quilts with a nod to the old. It is absolutely a modern quilting book, becasue it follows the real definition of modern quilting, not someone's idea of radical. Modern quilting does not mean radical, although some modern quilts can be just that.

This book puts a new twist and flavor on the old, and follows that true definition of "modern quilting", if you are looking for "radical quilting", then this is not the book for you....but then I doubt that was ever the intent.

Great book for new twists, learning about bold colors, and yes, even for those who are new to quilting. I wouldn't recommend it as a book to teach someone to quilt, but it is a good book for shaking up the old just a little, and learning the true modern quilting techniques.

I love taking this book off the shelf and just looking at the quilts. They are truly inspiring, and do not go off the deep end.

I find that many of today's quilt patterns rely heavily on overly "cutesy" fabrics and are more suited for children than an adult. That is fine if your quilt is for a child, and I make plenty of them, but sometimes you want to appreciate the quilt for the quality of the design. The patterns in this book rely on beautiful piecing and rich colors, and, while quite modern-looking, still have the appearance of heirlooms. I think Denyse Schmidt has found the perfect sweet spot between traditional and modern quilting, and I was in awe going through this book. Reading about her inspiration and the history behind the designs was informative and enjoyable. I think she is a fantastic artist, and I hope she will continue creating such gorgeous quilts. Finally, this book is of such wonderful quality, that it is more like a coffee table book than a quilting manual.

I loved this book as much for inspiration as for its instruction. A newbie quilter I was working with became enamored with the book, so I gave my original copy away. Recently bought this one and it was in very good condition. Glad to have it back on my bookshelf!

The book is filled with beautiful photos that inspire the quilter in me. The projects in the book appeal to a range of experience levels, so a beginner will enjoy just as much as an experienced quilter. Almost, if not all, projects have notes about how to create the quilt with a slight variation to give even more design options and doubles the # of potential projects inside. Instructions are clear and well written, and for the one quilt I have made so far, the materials required were sufficient to complete the project. No one wants to come up short!

Lovely photo's of beautiful quilts. I'm considering making the Snake Trail for my granddaughter. It looks like a good pattern to learn curves on. I love modern and old quilt patterns so this was perfect for me. Thanks Denise Schmidt for taking the time to write this book!

Love this book!!! I made a crib quilt version of the Snake Trails quilt in this book, and am about to start the Orange Peel/Robbing Peter to Pay Paul design. Every quilt is pretty, and doable! Instructions are first rate as well as book layout. I literally want to make every quilt in this book!

Didn't know how influential Denise Schmidt was in the trend of Modern Quilting until I bought this book. I enjoyed following her process to transform quilts with her own style. My copy is a hardcover, is beautifully put together, and I will keep it a very long time.
Amazing book, great quilts from a great quilt maker!! Book arrived in perfect condition thanks to the seller's packaging - thanks!
