A copy of Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr's latest publication, MODERN QUILTS ILLUSTRATED  arrived a few days ago.  Today was the first opportunity I had to really review it.
I absolutely love the format.

It is easy to read and the pattern directions are clear and specific.  The book contains patterns for three projects. 
Included are many tips and side bars to give more details.
They have provided a list of the fabrics used to make it easy to find the exact color if you want to duplicate their quilt.  There are alternate palettes shown to give inspiration for making the quilt your own.  There are a limited number of kits available for purchase.

Lots of information is given to help the beginner as well as the more experienced quilter understand the design concept that will make the finished quilt a success.

The last feature in the publication is called "Palette Chasing 101", "a feature designed to encourage the exploration and discovery of inspiring color combinations". 
In this issue the palette was selected from the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.

The publication will come out three times a year.
I can hardly wait to get started on a project.  I think I want to do the applique pears first.
