Simply Retro with Camille Roskelley: Fresh Quilts from Classic Blocks

"Camille Roskelley, best-selling author of Simplify with Camille Roskelley, puts a brand new spin on traditional-block quilting. By exploring modern print combinations and employing innovative techniques such as supersizing blocks, Roskelley offers a fresh interpretation of classic blocks in 12 achievable projects. Simple enough for beginners, all of the projects are easy to piece using precuts, yardage, and scrap fabrics. And, as always, Roskelley’s fail-proof instructions and expert knowledge will guide and inspire every step of the way.

• Master a variety of simple techniques such as half-square triangles and easy Flying Geese for a bold, sophisticated style
• Classic-block quilting gets a modern makeover with jumbo sizes, fresh prints and colors, and secondary patterns created with color placement
• Bridge the traditional and modern with quilts that have timeless appeal"

I love the fabric selection in the quilts in this book.  The blocks are reworked for ease of assembly so a novice quilter can put together a quilt top relatively quickly.  Since the block patterns are based on traditional blocks, any fabric selection would look lovely.  This book is great for either inspiration or for actual instruction on block construction.  Show me your quilt when you have it all put together!
