Modern Designs for Classic Quilts ~ Review and Giveaway

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...

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.
