You can love quilts and be a modernist!

I love Denyse's style of clean lines and geometric shapes. Such a breath of fresh air from all the nasty froo-froo quilting going on out there. I am a good quilter but gave it up a few years ago because my tastes are more contemporary. I've been picking it up again lately, due in part to the inspiration from this book.

What a Bunch of Squares is my favorite quilt in this book that I am going to make, maybe in just a throw size though.

I would've given this book 5 stars except for the fact that Denyse uses pattern pieces (given in the book) for her asymetrical geometric quilts. It's just not necessary to cut out your pieces with a pattern--WAY too much work. That's the whole point of this type of quilting--you do it all freehand.
