And this book also gives right back to the Modern Quilt Guild, as 100% f the royalties eared from this book go right back into the Modern Quilt Guild, a non-profit 501 (c)3.
With over 200 Modern Quilters gracing the pages of Modern Quilts I am truly honored to have one of my quilts featured in this amazing collection. Flipping to page 56 finds my Off Kilter Quilt!!! I can't tell you how excited I was when I was told this wonderful news ;)
Off Kilter has been a favorite quilt design of mine that really plays with color graduation in a simple yet stunning way. And I just love the modern solids and how they really make this design pop!!!
When it came time to quilt it, I opted for simple organic lines about 1/4" apart. It took a while to quilt and I got a lot of exercise going back and forth on the long arm, but it was so worth it ;) I just love the movement it gives the quilt!!
And I am super excited to say, that there is a free Step by Step tutorial for Off Kilter right over here ;) How fun is that!!! It has two size options, lap size or twin size, and is so much fun to make!!! So now, you can make your own Off Kilter quilt too ;) Just grab a stack of solids, and you are good to go ;)
And as I mentioned, there are so many incredible modern quilters represented in this book!! Be sure to follow along with the Modern Quilts Blog Tour to see more of the amazing quilts in this incredible book that I am so honored to be a part of!!!
Thanks again to the Modern Quilt Guild for this tremendous honor and be sure and get your copy of Modern Quilts pre-ordered today!!! It releases on December 29th, which just so happens to be my Anniversary as well ;) Super excited day!!!
Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
Congratulations for being in the book. I know what a fabulous feeling that is because I just got published for the first time in Rayna Gillman's new book Create You Own Improv Quilts page 73. I look forward to following the blog tour and seeing the works of the other participants.ReplyDelete
