Welcome to the first day of the 5 Days of Best Modern Quilts Blog Tour! We’re kicking off the release of Best Modern Quilts 2014, on sale now in quilt shops and bookstores, on newsstands and on QuiltandSewShop.com in both hard-copy and digital editions.
Here’s how the blog tour will work: at 9:00 a.m. MST on each day of the tour — January 13 to January 17 — we will post here on our blog the link to that day’s featured pattern designers’ blogs. Click on the links and visit the designers’ blogs to learn about the projects or quilts designed for Best Modern Quilts 2014 and more about what the designers are currently up to. You’ll also have a chance to win a bundle of free fabric (which will vary from day to day) and a copy of Best Modern Quilts 2014 by leaving a comment on the designer’s blog before midnight MST on that same day. Note that on each day we’ll have two designers to visit, which means you’ll have a chance to win two different prizes.
Today’s first stop on the blog tour is Fresh Modern Quilts, the blog home of Rossie Hutchinson, our cover designer. Her quilt Prill is a modern take on large flying geese going every which way.
Striking, isn’t it? To learn more about it visit Fresh Modern Quilts. If you leave a comment on Rossie’s blog before 11:59 p.m. MST tonight — Monday, January 13 —you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Caravan Dreams fat quarter bundle by Josephine Kimberling for Blend Fabrics. Comments left on this blog will not be entered for a chance to win the prize.
Today’s second stop on the blog tour is Tamarinis, a thought forum for designer Tammy Silvers. Bloom is a quilt of large stylized flowers made with an unusual technique.
Just like a part of a garden! To learn more about it visit Tamarinis. If you leave a comment on Tammy’s blog before 11:59 p.m. MST tonight — Monday, January 13 —you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Flower Drops collection fat quarter bundle by P&B textiles. Comments left on this blog will not be entered for a chance to win the prize.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for another day of giveaways on the 5 Days of Best Modern Quilts Blog Tour. We have many more designers to introduce you to as well as more great quilt inspiration!
