This is a MUST HAVE BOOK - just a beautiful book. E-Z quilts - but the color and drama makes each quilt look - over the top. The Hat Box Quilt is just out of this world!!! BUY THIS YOU'LL LOVE IT.

This book is inspirational to me. There are so many brilliant colors and designs that I am sure I will be busy for years trying to make even a few of them. The quilts in this book have the power to transform a room. They are real show-stoppers. I read some of the other reviews about this book and was shocked to read comments like, only the quilt on the cover has bright colors, the others were drab. That is just not true. If I had a complaint I would say the text is not as detailed as I would like. The book was clearly written to showcase quilt design, not to teach patchwork quilting. But that is exactly why I bought it, so I am not the least bit dissapointed.

Fassett's recipes for quilt color are fabulous. I've spent many enjoyable hours studying how he uses color, matching brights and muted colors, to develop some wonderful results. My only objection is the template patterns. Aside from the "Rice Bowls" and "Hat Boxes" quilts, I don't see why the patterns use templates. Most of the quilts in the book could be done with the much quicker rotary cutting techniques.

I agree with vikinges perfect description "drunk with color" as this book takes simple traditional patterns and explodes them through the creative use of color. I've always been pretty bold with color but I never knew chartreuse could look so wonderful in a quilt.
However my chief complaint, which keeps it from getting 5 stars, is that in a world made easy with strip piecing, all of the patterns are presented with templates. An experienced quilter will be able to adapt the patterns to rotary cutting, but why torture a beginning quilter? So I must disagree with the earlier reviewer who felt this was the only quilting book one would ever need. Instead, it should be looked at as a fabulous addition to a diverse quilting library.
That said, I am very inspired by the quilts in this book and have my sights set on making the Suzani quilt soon. I'm off to get that chartreuse fabric now...

To me the best thing about this book was the cover. I was not inspired by the quilts included in the book. They seemed to have no design. They were made of either all washed out pale prints or all bright colors.
