In looking through the book, one of the things that stood out to me the most was Amy's comments at the beginning of the book. That she created all of these quilts amid the busy-ness of caring for her family, without a designated sewing space impresses me, not just with her organization skills but her encouragement that these quilts really are attainable for any quilter, any skill level, and any situation.
I always get intimidated when starting a project, it usually puts me off. But her clear cutting and piecing instructions, with diagrams, make the process understandable, and less scary. And then I start thinking of fabrics to pull to start another project!
Modern Exchange is an example of how 2 simple blocks alternated can make a beautiful and interesting quilt top. Shown here, the large focal print jumps out at you, while putting it together with more solids/small scale prints would achieve a completely different look.
