Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers

Modern Blocks Cover

I have been waiting to write this post for months and today is finally the day I can spill the beans! I am going to be in a book!

Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers, published by Stash Books, is set for release this November and I designed one of the 99 modern quilt block patterns inside. I’m not entirely sure if I can share a picture of the block…but here’s a hint: if you liked my Echino Squared quilt, you will like the block. How’s that? There will be complete instructions for my quilt block, as well as the other 98. That’s a lot of quilt-square-bang-for-your-buck!

You can even already pre-order your copy on Amazon. I should have an early copy sometime in August and will post more then. Thanks for letting me share my excitement!

    sorry, I missed this post yesterday….that work thing got in the way of my fun!!
    Anyway..Congratulations!! You truly deserve to be in a book of favorites. You are one of my favorites…

    I am a beginner quilter, and on my very first venture into a quilt store I was hooked, but didn’t even know where to start. The lady sold me a “Thimbleberry” book and some material. I took the book home, but it was soooo not me. I couldn’t find anything that I liked.

    Then I found your blog by accident (one of the first blogs I ever saw) and I saw your Fresh Lemons Quilt! That was IT!! That was the kind of quilts I liked. You gave me an anchor to start exploring more modern designs (and I am not even going to get into the “modern” label discussion!!) I just knew I liked what I saw. Thank you.
