My quilting style is traditional feathers and dense McTavishing. I love to put as much quilting as I can in a pieced top. The options in this book provide the same with geometric shapes, organic swirls, and stunning linear spacing. The quilting is so conceptual it significantly altered my "preference" with regard to modern styling of traditional quilts.
Quilt blog entries for month: May 2012
One of the first quilting blogs that I fell in love with was Elizabeth Hartman's Oh Fransson (www.OhFransson.com). I am intrigued by her variety of style and subject matter. She offers a lot of techniques and quilt-alongs for some really cute projects. When I heard we were getting her newest book, Modern Patchwork, I was really excited to get my hands on it.

Hi again! It's Kiki from It's Sew Kiki. I want to share with you just how wonderful I think Connecting Threads' new fabric line, Bookish is. One of my very favorite things to do, besides sew, is to read. I usually read around 2 books a week! There are books stashed everywhere in our house. So when I saw this fabric, I had the perfect little design in mind. I made this little Table Topper for my end table in my living room. I called it Library Card and the pattern is available as a free download from Connecting Threads!
What could be more fun for a book-themed quilt than an actual library stack full of tossed, leaning books? Library Stack is just that quilt made of many things library and characterized as an actual full book shelf. How amusing is that??!! A perfect gift for the bookworm or someone with their own personal library, Library Stack can put you in a reading frame of mind while keeping you toasty warm.
