Modern Patchwork book review

 So today, I got a little treat in the post! The lovely people from sew mama sew choose two random comments each month, and send them a book! I got Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman, and I am absolutely delighted!
 It's full of lovely photos of quilts made with gorgeous fabrics, and the instructions are clear and in depth. I especially like the neighbourhood quilt, and I may give it a go!
 I really love most of the projects listed here, which is quite rare. I will often flick through a book and see maybe two or three projects I'll try, but I could imagine making all of these!
It also has an alternative ideas section at the back, which is great as it helps you imagine the quilt in different ways. Also included are a fold out full size paper pattern section, a fabric choosing section and some basic techniques. Something particularly useful for me is the section on rotary cutting, because I'm hoping that I will get a set for my upcoming birthday!
Overall this is a nicely presented book full of amzing quilts, with in depth instructions about how to make them.
