Modern Designs for Classic Quilts Blog Hop

Today I’m happy to share a new book with you, Modern Designs for Classic Quilts: 12 Traditionally Inspired Patterns Made New (F+W Media) by Kelly Biscopink and Andrea Johnson. I first met coauthor Andie last Spring when I was in Cincinnati for the International Quilt Festival. She is part of the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild and they hosted a party one evening. A couple months later we worked together when organizing my visit to teach one Saturday at their guild. She is just the sweetest, funniest person. When she asked if I wanted to check out her new book, I jumped on the chance.

This book has 12 quilt projects that I think would inspire any modern quilter. You know I love solids…

Scrappy spider web – amazing! Something like this is on my quilt bucket list.

And I really love the minimalistic look of these off centered flying geese. And the dark solid background? It’s really striking.

Kelly and Andie also have a thorough tips and techniques section which is always helpful to those just starting out quilting.

      Hi there,
      I’ve recently retired and just started quilting for the first time. I am just completing my first quilt but had many challenges trying to find ‘modern quilt’ designs – till I discovered your site on Pinterest. Love the bright happy colours and designs you offer and would love to see this new book and what it has to offer to inspire me further.
      Thank you for all the info you provide.
