Have your blocks gotten blah? Have your squares lost your sass? Well then, you need to check out Dare To Be Square Quilting by Boo Davis!
Boo is a designer, illustrator, and heavy metal fan that began quilting in college. Her quilts have appeared in Revolver, Bust, How and British Vogue.
Dare To Be Square starts off the way any good quilting book should - with a refesher on material, tools & equipment, and designing, making, signing and caring for your quilt. We especially liked the section on using a design wall to help you select and position fabrics for your project.
Once the basics are covered, it's time to dive into the projects! There are instructions for 10 quilts (including the adorable owl on the book's cover, and there are also instructions for 12 projects. We're very fond of the Gridlock Grocery Getter! The quilts and projects are all made with squares and rectangles, so they're very easy to put together. Don't let the easiness of the projects fool you - they really are very cool and will have you thinking about squares in a whole new way!
