Modern Designs for Classic Quilts ~ Review and Giveaway
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.
Aren't they cute?
Kelly, Andie and F+W Media were kind enough to send me an extra book for one of you. If you'd like to try to win the copy, leave a comment and I will pick a winner Friday, 11/9, evening!
