Modern Mix blog tour

It’s my stop on another book blog tour today. This time around it’s for a fellow Stash Books author, Jessica Levitt and her book Modern Mix.

10795D

The mix that the title refers to is solid and patterned fabrics.  If you follow my blog at all, you know I’m a real lover of solids. Jessica’s book proves over and over that solids set off a project and give patterned fabric some room to breath and be appreciated.

TwinStringQuilt

The book is chock full of projects that use all different quantities of solid fabrics and each one is beautiful.

StripeofStripsPillow

The projects range in size and complexity. Everything from big bed quilts to pillows and little pouches.  So many great projects here – you’re certain to be inspired to get to the sewing machine and sew some of them up!

And I’ll bet you seriously want a copy of this book, huh?? Well you get a chance to win one right now! Leave a comment on this post and one lucky winner will get a copy. I’ll pick a winner on Wednesday the 12th.

If you’d like to follow along, the remaining stops on the tour are:

Monday 10/10:  Stop Staring and…Start Sewing
Tuesday 10/11:  Quilting is My Therapy
Wednesday 10/12:  Stitch Magazine Blog
Thursday 10/13:  Oh Fransson
Friday 10/14:  Generation Q Magazine
Saturday 10/15:  Quilt Dad
Sunday 10/16:  Confessions of a Craft Addict
