Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers

Posted on November 11th, by Amy in books. 183 comments

No doubt you’ve seen this book around the last couple of weeks!  I submitted two blocks for consideration in Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers and both of them have been included.  Which also means that I have a copy to give away to one of you!

While designing I hoped to create dynamic blocks on their own, but also be able to visualize them as a quilt of one block.  So I thought I would share my sketches with you!

First is Pixel Peaks –

With this block, I was inspired by a rug I had seen at a friends house.  Super simple construction, it’s just a matter of cutting the pieces, but if you wanted to make a whole quilt, it could easily be strip pieced!  If I were to make quilt with just this block, I would arrange it like so –

Despite the pixel nature, it feels kinda organic to me.

And Stonehenge –

With this block, I was trying to get the movement of a circle, without piecing a circle!  Not opposed to circles, but I know they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.  For a quilt, I would alternate the color placement, to create more drama within a quilt top –

I really like the shapes created where the corners meet!  I think the best part of both of my blocks, is that they can be made to suite any decor.  If I were to make either of them right now, it would probably be purple.  I have bought two purple shirts and one cardigan in the last month!


In the book there really are 99 blocks!  Many are pieced like mine, however embroidery, and applique are also included.  It’s organized alphabetically, which always makes me happy, and there’s a great group of designers included!  The cover at the top, is a great representation of the inspiration to be found in this one book – so who would like a copy?

To enter:

Leave me a comment telling me your current favorite color.

I’ll select a winner on Wednesday, November 16th.

Good luck!

    Love the shape of your stonehenge block.
    My favourite all time colour is pink, all shades of pink, and when it is put with green I am one happy camper.

  10. 10

    I would love to win this book! Every block I’ve seen out of it has been fantastic – including yours :)

    I have to put my favorite color in fabric terms – right now it is Kona Stone – I want to put it in everything.

    Michele says:

    That book looks like one that I have to add to my wish list for Santa this year. He is always needing help finding me gifts that I really want. My favorite color has always been periwinkle.

    Kathy says:

    I am loving jewel tones right now – including orange and teal. Have always loved purple though – case in point – my bridesmaids wore purple!

    laurel says:

    hmm. probably orange – but not halloween orange, more like a fall harvest kind of orange.

    NONNIE says:

    ABSOLUTELY adore the book. I have been playing in my EQ (just learning) with the blocks so that I can see which of the quilts I want to make. I have been having a blast with them and I have already started on a few baby quilts I need using the patterns.

    I did like your blocks, especially STONEHENGE and hope to make it into a laptop for my brother for his March birthday.

    FAVORITE COLOR : ANY color but I use blues mostly so that is probably my favorite…I tend to avoid brown like the plague.

    Hmmm… for a while it’s been sort of a kelley green… but not quite. With a touch of lime perhaps. Ha! That probably makes no sense. :)

    Sue says:

    Congratulations on being published. Black is my all time favourite and I include it whenever possible…..even though it is not a colour. I love the way it makes colours pop, whether it is a print or solid. The deep orange of Indian textiles is my current favourite. Perhaps it is because it is almost summer here…..There is just something about it that draws me to it.

  17. 17

    right now I am drawn to purple …although my usual favourite is yellow.

    Krista says:

    I love the fact that you asked for “current” favourite colour. Mine seems to change on a regular basis, partly depending how much I’ve been working with it. Right now, deep royal blue would have to be my choice.

    sharon says:

    my favorite color is now grey a shade closer to a blue grey.
    I recently had my bathroom and bedroom painted in 2 different shades of grey. we also got new bedroom furniture with a linen grey upholstered headboards. I also have a big stack of grey fabric to make into a quilt (hopefully before we consider the furniture to be vintage!)

    Beth says:

    Loving both of your blocks, Amy! How exciting to have both of them in the book, congrats! The 2nd one reminds me of the DP quilt I making right now so I would say you did a great job making it look like a circle but without having to deal with circles (those curved seams can be tricky!).

    My favorite color right now is gray! Thanks for the chance!

  26. 26

    My favourite color would have to be aqua but being a mom of 4 girls, the youngest only 3 months old, I tend to use pink in everything!

    The book looks fabulous! Congrats on both of your blocks being published! Thanks for the chance to get my hands on a copy of this wonderful must-have book!

    I am still in my purple obsession, though I’ve been making so many quilts for others in their favorite color schemes that you’d never know it! I really like the look of this book – it’s on my holiday wish list, but how exciting would it be to win one early! I’d have to rename you “Santa Amy” in my mind! :)
