I had a pleasant surprise when I came home last night and found the two new quilting books I ordered from Amazon: Tula Pink’s new “City Sampler,” which has 100 modern blocks. These will be great inspiration to help me create something for the first meeting of the Louisville Modern Quilt Guild.
I also bought a copy of “Quilting Modern,” by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pederson.
If you haven’t yet visited either of these wonderful quilters’ blogs, you should definitely take a look. You can find Jacquie’s work at Tallgrass Prairie Studio and Katie blogs at Sew Katie Did. I can’t wait to spend some quality time with both these books over the next few weeks.
Are any of you familiar with the website Craftsy? I learned about them a little more than a year ago and I am hooked! For those who don’t know, Craftsy is a crafter’s paradise, offering well-done, online video classes in everything from quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking, just too many subjects to list.The classes aren’t expensive, they often have sales and the classes never expire.
Craftsy also offers a number of free mini-classes and it was Elizabeth Hartman’s class, “Creative Quilt Backs,” which got me interested in modern quilts. I really couldn’t recommend the website more.
If you like Jacquie’s work, she now has a class for Craftsy called, “Improvisational Piecing – Modern Design,” where she’ll teach three new techniques and five new quilt designs. I was lucky enough to score it on sale for just $19.99!
I’ve started my next project that I can’t wait to share with you. Here’s a sneak peak:
As always, thanks for stopping by for a visit.
