Well, I have some exciting news that I can finally share. There is a book coming out by C & T Publishing called Modern Blocks – 99 Quilt Blocks from your favorite designers. And guess what? I bet you figured it out… apparently I’m one of those favorite designers. 😉
I can’t wait to see the book! It’s not due out until the fall, but I made all of my blocks for it last fall! So I’ve been waiting a long time to share this with you all. You may have noticed that I said “ALL of my blocks”. I’m so fortunate to have 11(!) blocks in this book. You should have seen me hopping around when I got that email. That was a fun day. 😉
And while I am not allowed to show you the blocks yet, I am able to show you the front cover.
It’s so crisp and fresh and pretty! Oh and guess what?! TWO of those are my blocks! So I can share those with you. Teehee! For simplicity’s sake, I’ll go ahead and show you my own pictures of those two blocks instead of trying to tell you which of those are mine. I’d be interested to see if you could guess though.
My blocks are:
They picked two of my favorites! Although honestly, I’d probably say that about any of them.
So there was much rejoicing again when I saw the cover of the book. I did not expect anything of mine to be on the cover, so it was very fun to see two blocks there!
I know that a lot of other people in blog land have blocks in the book as well! Share! Share! I only know a few of the people, and we don’t all add up to 99 blocks yet.
And lest you think everything is going perfectly wonderful over here, you’ll be interested to know that I discovered today that I cut half of the fabric for my quilt along incorrectly and now need to redo all of that…and potentially the whole thing if I can’t find enough of the white fabric I used…darn one-time purchase. So I may be truly starting along with you all! But it’s better to learn the lessons first and not later. Don’t worry. I’ll get it all worked out before I share the pattern with you. Doh!
