Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe





Today is my day for promoting the book "Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe".  I decided to choose a quilt pattern from the book and make it, for my blog post today.  It took me a while to choose, there are quite a few that I'd like to make!

I ended up making this one in a baby size because I didn't have enough fabric for the full size.  I just scaled the whole thing down, since I wanted to keep the design the same.  This was a very fast quilt to make!  It's super simple too.  Great for a beginner who wants to try out a modern minimal design.

One great thing about this book is the diversity of designs.  You get a sampling of a lot of different types of quilts.


So I'm giving away one more copy of this book!  Just add your comment if you'd like to win it.
