Modern Basics II :: Blitz!

Posted on February 25th, by Amy in give away, Modern Basics. 9 comments

Hi there! I’m excited to have a few friends share about my new book today!

Modern Basics II was written as a follow up for Modern Basics – clever, huh?

I wanted to guide more quilters on their own path to finding creative therapy, no matter how busy or inexperienced they are at quilting. I often talk with people who don’t quilt, or don’t have time to quilt, and I always encourage them to find a few minutes each day or week, to learn something new, or just play with fabric. This group of patterns is geared for the new and confident quilters, with a bit of a challenge mixed in!

Yesterday was a productive day around here.  I have been installing sleeves on my quilts, which I put off until just before shipping, of course!

Three done, and one and a half to finish. I started with the larger quilts, and watch a couple movies as I stitched.

Do you have a favorite movie(s) or TV show to watch while stitching? 

I’m always looking for suggestions!

More soon – Amy

Hi there!  This week has been slow and fast all the same time!  All the extra little things at school, add up fast to no time on the computer – I hope you’ve had a good week.  I had fun reading all your comments about what you hope for – many of the same sentiments can be found here in my house too : happy, healthy kids, with fun family time, and a dash of sewing time to myself as needed.  

Anyway the winner of the Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe is Amanda! I already emailed her and will be sending the book off right away.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

15 Minutes of Play is one of those you books you want to sit down and slowly ingest, and then hurry to the sewing machine to put the ideas into practice.  The nature of Victoria’s narrative draws you into the source of her inspiration, and she guides you to find own, and create beautiful quilts.

V shares her methods for “made-fabric”, offers block patterns to inspire quilts of your own design.  She has also included many inspirational quilts, many made by others, to give you a feel of how individual the process can be.  By playing for just 15 minutes each day, as V suggests, your creative juices are always flowing and ready … Read More »
