Modern Quilts - Block by Block Blog Tour


I'm excited to be sharing with you Emily Dennis of Quilty Love first Book - Modern Quilts - Block by Block for Tuva Publishing.  I know how nerve wracking, writing and putting out there your own book is but Emily has knocked this one out of the Park.  You will just love this book and certainly want to add it to your Quilt Library.

Modern Quilts showcases 12 projects with repeating Block designs to get you sewing.  No matter whether this is your first quilt or have more experience, you will enjoy making the patterns from this book.  The pages are well laid out with beautiful colour pictures and diagrams to help you through your chosen quilt pattern.

There is definitely a project in this book for everyone - no matter who you would like to make a quilt for you will find a beautiful pattern for just the right purpose. And just as Emily says in the forward - "Quilts are meant to be used and loved."


It was definitely hard to decide which Block to make but this one caught my eye from the cover of the book.  This Quilt design is called "First Place" and I had just the right Bundle of fabrics sitting in readiness on my cutting table to make it.  I have a FQ Bundle of Forage by Anna Graham of Noodlehead along with some Carolyn Friedlander fabric for my background and I was quickly set.  


This block was great fun and quick to make following along with the Instructions.  I love how the fabric repeats through the block and how striking this quilt will be in lots of different colour and fabric variations.


A lot of the Quilts are Fat Quarter friendly which means they are perfect for all those beautiful Bundles you have stashed on your shelves and with Christmas coming - if you are thinking of making a quilt for someone special there is plenty of time with these designs.




With Big, bold designs you will love all that there is to make in Modern Quilts - you can grab a copy for yourself here

Congratulations Emily on your first book - it is beautiful.

Happy Quilting
