The concept of Tradition with a Twist Quilts is one that’s both fairly simple and very complex. It’s equal parts traditional quilting and modern quilting. It’s taking the old and making it new again. Our designers for Quilters Newsletter Presents Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015 took the idea to mean something just a little bit different to each of them. Some of our designers played with non-traditional colors and altered blocks to suit their personal tastes while others played with non-traditional fabrics and techniques. To celebrate the release of this wonderful issue, we’re holding a blog tour this week. Each day, today through Friday, we’ll introduce you to two or three of our talented designers and give you the opportunity to win a bundle of fabric for each of their blogs you visit! If you don’t already have a copy of Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015, you can find one on newsstands, at bookstores, fabric shops, and online at Quilt and Sew Shop. Plus, check out the promo video we made for the issue:
To start us off with our blog tour, please visit the online home of our first designer, Brenda Miller, who designed and made Skip a Beat for our Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015 issue. This lovely table runner could be a perfect Valentine’s Day decoration, but it could also celebrate warmth and love all year round.
Our second designer today on our blog tour is Janet Jo Smith, who designed and made Lady in Red using her own hand-dyed fabrics. The gradations in the hand-dyes really make the two colors of this variation on a traditional lady of the lake block quilt pop.
Comments must be entered by Midnight Mountain Time tonight unless otherwise noted in the individual designer’s blog post to be eligible to win. Randomly selected winners from all blogs involved in the Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015 Blog Tour will receive an email from QNMquestions@fwmedia.com with the subject line “Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015 Blog Tour giveaway.” Open to anyone worldwide who has not won anything from Quilters Newsletter in the past 90 days.
Don’t forget to visit us here at the QN Blog again tomorrow for chances to win two new bundles of fabric by visiting two more designers’ blogs!
