I Make Modern Blocks

Some of you may have noticed a button in my sidebar the last couple of months that alludes to something fun-- I've got two patterns published in Modern Blocks!

Modern Blocks book cover


First up, Rolling Hills:

rolling hills block


It's a simple block that features a gentle curve. When the blocks are arranged in a quilt, they create pretty waves. I've got one in the works that I can't wait to show you!

The next is Spool:

spool block


This is also a very simple block. When I created it, I imagined using it to make a sweet mini quilt for my sewing room. That's in the works too. And hey, check it out on the back cover!

Modern Blocks book back cover


Designing these blocks was a really fun experience-- one that I've been able to share with wonderful friends who are also in the book. Check out these posts from Krista, Lynne, and Angela to see what they've created!

I should have the real books in hand any day now (I can't wait!!!) but for now, I am happy to be able to give away one copy of the Modern Blocks e-book. Leave a comment below if you'd like to win it! I'll leave comments open through the weekend and pick a winner on Monday morning. The giveaway is now closed!

I'm so excited about this book! I've had it in my wish list since I first heard about it, and every couple of months I'd check it and be sad when it was still on pre-order.

Now that it's close to Christmas, I'm hoping someone (my husband) will get it for me! :>

Congratulations on your patterns being published!
