Minimal quilts have been around for a long time, as Gwen Marston points out noting Amish quilts. In this book, Gwen takes the essence of minimal – stripped down to its essentials – and applies that to quilts. While many books include a variety of patterns to reinforce the techniques, the approach here is to the process. Not that you are totally without some guidance. Regardless that results in your own original design. I loved the diversity of the work included in the book. If you try a “less is more” approach, give Minimal Quiltmaking a try.
