A great book that champions bold colour choices, Modern Rainbow zings with style. The fourteen featured quilts are fantastic examples of strong colour combinations and you're sure to find a projects or two that you feel you have to create in its well-designed pages. There's a growing and encouraging trend for quilters and authors to encourage enthusiasm over technical perfection, and Rebecca Bryan, whilst providing a wealth of helpful detail and advice, continues that trend. The quilts here are, on a technical level, very accomplished, but they roar with vibrant passion. There are traditionally inspired projects, modern and more freeform projects featured; all them bristle with delicious colour choices, quilts you'll not only want to make but also use and show off. In playing with colour so effectively and subverting the cliches of the rainbow colour set, Rebecca has triumphed with her selections here. The Lucy in the Sky quilt, that plays with bright primary colours against black and white, is a particular favourite, and Monstar actually looks like it might radiate animatedly like a neon sign, such is the sense of movement.* Popular Patchwork *
