Hey there chickadees! I’m here participating in the last stop of Amy’s blog tour for her new book, Modern Neutrals. I know, I posted about the book a couple months ago, but I’m going to tell you a little more about it so that you can win one. Sound like a deal? Besides, this book rocks. I promise.
So. Modern Neutrals. It’s a pretty little book. More than that, it’s a book that is full of patterns you can use for everyone. Read: there are no appliquéd flowers or hearts or girly things in here–just crisp, clean lines. You can make something for your son, or husband, or boyfriend, or pool boy, or whatever. They’ll like it. You can also make something for your mom or sister or new baby niece. It’s that darn versatile. I mean really, can you imagine this quilt made in greys and pinks? Why hello gorgeous, tactile, baby quilt!
Amy does a great job with her explanations and diagrams (she’d better, this is her third book!), and gives great tips on how to be successful at piecing the blocks. There’s a project or two that require paper piecing or partial seams but they’re minimal and explained well. You can make these.
If you’d like to win an e-copy of this book for yourself, head on over to Amy’s blog and visit the other stops on the tour. Then, click over to the form and answer the questions, press submit, and you’ll be entered. Amy will draw a winner on Tuesday from everyone who answered the questions correctly. Simple as pie. Then, when you win, you can thank me by making the cover quilt and sending it my way. Oranges, greys, and dusty aquas, please. Because that cover quilt? It’s my favorite.
Hooray for awesome books, and hooray for pretty quilts. Double hooray for awesome, pretty, quilty books.
