Giveaway: Modern Designs for Classic Quilts {Comments Closed}

Update: I have closed the comments and the winner will come from the existing pool of comments.  I will announce a winner Monday but for now we are really busy with the holidays.  Hope you are all having a great one.  Thanks for playing along!

____
One of the fun parts of Market was getting to meet someone I felt like I knew through blogville.  That person is Andie of Andie Johnson Sews.  She was in town to promote her new book Modern Designs for Classic Quilts along with her co-author Kelly Biscopink of Stitchy Quilt Stuff.  Andie was as fun in real life as I thought she'd be and Kelly was really fun, too. 



The spiderwebby quilt in the background is one of the projects as is the rainbow log cabin on the front of the book (well, derrrr).

This book takes on a cause near and dear to my heart...keeping traditional quilt designs relevant.  In my mind a true artist cares about the history of their medium.  You don't have to make traditional quilts all the time...just appreciate them and give some respect to those who went before us.  This is something these girls do.  They include 1 big project and 1 mini project for each concept...you can do little, big, or both.

My favorite Kelly project is this:
I've actually done a rainbow dresden before but I love the darker background here and the "stems" in between the flowers.  Those 2 elements take the quilt from traditional (like the one I did) to modern without completely going off the rails.  Dresdens are really addictive to make so I think this could be a quick project without looking too easy to a non quilter.

My favorite Andie project is her take on the New York Beauty.  This is a traditional New York Beauty:

And this is Andie's take on it:

Isn't that pretty???   It would look perfectly at home in a penthouse in Manhattan NY or a farmhouse in Manhattan KS.  I love that!

So I have some good news...I have 1 signed copy of this book to give away to one of y'all. I am gonna give you a few options to win this book.  And seriously no complaining about jumping through hoops because you DO NOT have to follow any blogs, like any facebooks, or name your first children after me to win.  Pick one option or pick all four!  

1)Leave a comment telling me your favorite traditional quilt pattern (no following neccessary)

extra shots:

2)Be a follower or subscriber (old or new) of The Tulip Patch (requires a separate comment from #1)
3)Be a follower or subscriber of Andie Johnson Sews
4)Be a follower or subscriber of Stitchy Quilt Stuff by Kelly Biscopink

A winner will be drawn at random at the conclusion of the blog hop.

  1. I have to go with the Log Cabin Block. Even in its most basic form, it has such great versatility. Plus it doesn't hurt that the quilt that really got me hooked on fabric was a log cabin variation. :)

  11. I love churn dash/monkey wrench... but looking at the book, I loved, loved the log cabin when I did that,, and seeing the Dresden plates, I remembered how I loved putting those together and appliqueing them on the blocks. I have some in my "yet to be finished" pile.. I could probably still put them together with the stems...I actually think my best best love is the applique technique on quilts. I am drawn toward that and do not know yet if that is where I will hover as I progress. While I am here, if you will just send me the ISBN # of the book, I think I will go ahead and get it...thanks!
