If you're looking to take your quilts in a daring new direction, then check out Karla Alexander's Dynamic Quilts with Easy Curves: 19 Projects to Stack, Shuffle, and Sew quilt book. Using her own creative techniques, Alexander provides examples of quilt patterns with curves that both beginner and advanced quilters will enjoy. The book includes 19 projects that serve as an introduction to curved piecing, but also as frameworks for advanced quilters looking to take Alexander's patterns in a different direction.

Dynamic Quilts with Easy Curves begins by introducing readers to some quilting basics, including options for affordable materials and fabric choices. Because details involved with quilt measurements can be difficult to explain using words, this book also provides helpful images that demonstrate how to approach cutting and sewing elements of the quilt. For those new to quilting, Alexander also provides definitions about blocks, quilts, and curves to make sure readers have an understanding of each of the techniques included in her tutorials.

While each of the 19 patterns included in
Dynamic Quilts with Easy Curves provides measurements, there are also useful design tips for choosing block and background colors for quilters looking to use their own style ideas. The tutorials, using Alexander's "stack the deck" technique involving stacking and slicing fabrics before shuffling them to create designs, combine step-by-step instructions and diagrams in order to ensure that every reader can understand the process of creating a curvy quilt from start to finish.

No matter where you are in your quilting journey, if you're looking for a chance to experiment with new shapes, the 19 patterns in Karla Alexander's
Dynamic Quilts with Easy Curves are a great place to start. Buy this book, and you'll be creating one-of-a-kind curvy quilts in no time.
