Runner Up: Best Patchwork Book
Modern Basics: Easy Quilts to Fit Your Budget, Space and Style is the perfect guide for the budget-oriented, beginning patchwork artist. Most people who work all day, take care of their kids or have any other obligations to deal with each day don’t have much time to quilt when the day is done. This book is so great because it is geared to help you make simple quilts that don’t take a ton of time and still produce a beautiful result that makes a perfect gift or addition to your home. One of the best parts of this book is that it’s directed toward beginners and gives you all the tools you need to create your first quilt, but doesn’t waste a ton of time on tedious rules. The author Amy Ellis gives you the inspiration you need to create her designs with fabrics you already have at home, so you don’t have to spend all of your time and money at the craft store.
If you’re really into traditional patchwork designs, you may be disappointed that Ellis’s quilts have a more modern and simplistic twists. But no matter what type of quilting you usually prefer, you’ll love how quickly and easily you can make one of the beautiful designs.
