Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe

Hi friends! Today all the contributors to Modern Quilts From the Blogging Universe are participating in a Blog Blitz! To learn more visit the blog at for details!

Jigsaw -

Jigsaw is the quilt I made for the book, it’s pieced in columns or rows, and the small size goes together pretty quickly!

We also included a twin size in the book, which I would love to make.

Twin Jigsaw - Amy EllisI love the gradient of colors in this example.

I also had fun filling it in with Constellations by Lizzie House:

jigsaw constellations - AmysCreativeSide.comI love the varying blues in this collection, and the prints are fab – Must buy soon!

With the blog blitz, we are each giving away an ebook.

To win, leave me a comment, about your favorite upcoming fabric line.

I will select a winner on Tuesday, January 29th.
