My prize for being a Blogger’s Quilt Festival viewer’s choice winner was $100 worth of quilting books from Martingale/That Patchwork Place. Whoo hoo! I had fun picking out these four books below:
Modern Neutrals: A Fresh Look at Neutral Quilt Patterns by Amy Ellis.
She’s the host of the semi-annual blogger’s quilt fest and a fantastic quilt designer, too!
Other contributing designers whose names I recognize are Amy Smart, Carolyn Friedlander, and Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
Skip the Borders: Easy Patterns for Modern Quilts by Julie Herman.
Perhaps my favorite design aspect of modern quilting is borderless quilts!
It includes 15 stunning quilts pieced by Julie, 14 of which are machine quilted by Angela Walters. This is eye candy indeed!
Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe, a compilation of 19 beautiful unique quilts with a modern aesthetic.
Some bloggers from the book I follow are Amy Ellis, Natalia Bonner, Jeni Baker, Heather Jones, Megan Jimenez, Kati Spencer, Jennifer Mathis, and Lee Heinrich.
Now I’m sort hoping they’ll come out with a sequel. 🙂
It was barely a year ago that I first discovered modern quilting and brought along the first modern book I ever purchased to read while relaxing at the beach.
I plan on diving into my new stash of books during this summer’s trip. Plus I want to catch up on all of the Craftsy Classes I’ve signed up for! So stay tuned for updates. 🙂
