Hi there! Today my friends at Moda are hosting a fun hop to celebrate books!


One of the first quilting books that I learned to quilt from, is The Simple Joys of Quilting by Joan Hanson and Mary Hickey. I even photographed it with one of my earliest quilts, that I made for our Emmalie as a baby.

In the book, the pattern was for a twin, but I couldn’t imagine making a quilt that size at the time, and the little 27″ quilt was perfect for the stroller and carseat.

My most favorite book is always the most recent one that I worked on :)

In this case, it’s Modern Neutrals. I’m just so proud of the end product, and love the patterns included. Not having Basics in the title gave me freedom to include challenging and more detailed patterns. And there’s lots of inspiration for masculine quilts!

Autographed copies of Modern Neutrals are available in my bookshop or on Amazon.

Visit the Moda blog to learn about more great books and a giveaway!

Do you have a favorite quilting book?
