Modern Cover 200 5 Days of Best Modern Quilts Blog Tour – Day 4

Well hello again. Today’s day four of the 5 Days of Best Modern Quilts Blog Tour! We’re having a great time ‘touring’ the blogs of designers who contributed to 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. Filled with so many projects of varying sizes and difficulties, you’ll find inspiration no matter your quilting goals. Be sure to check out both of today’s wonderful designers for two chances to win some free fabric and a copy of Best Modern Quilts 2014!

Today’s first stop on the blog tour is Esch House Quilts, both the business website and blog of designer Debbie Grifka. Her quilt Crosswalk focuses on the shapes, not the color, made with medium contrast fabrics Kona White and Kona Cadet from Robert Kaufman Fabrics, the quilting echoing the piecing.
