"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 - from Basketweave and Orange Peel to Streak
of Lightning and Mariner's Compass. Modern Quilts, Traditional
Inspiration is the artist's return to this fertile terrain, featuring
her colorful and updated take on 20 time-tested designs. Schmidt
contextualizes each quilt pattern with historical details and pertinent
notes on her adaptations. 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
