Modern Basics Book Blog Tour & Giveaway

Modern Basics cover
Welcome to the blog tour of Amy Ellis‘ new pattern book Modern Basics.  I feel honored to be part of the official blog tour and I’m so excited to share this book!  As a long time blog (Amy’s Creative Side) reader, I’ve known Amy was working hard on this book and I couldn’t wait to get a look at it. I can honestly say that it met, if not exceeded, all of my expectations.  I think it’s sometimes difficult for me to find a quilt pattern book with more than one or two patterns that I want to try. Not the case with this book. 

Amy has done a fantastic job creating patterns that are visually challenging, but shows how they can easily be assembled.  All 14 projects are beautiful. These are three of my favorites.

This is a perfect book for beginners too.  Many very simple projects with a lot of visual impact. The instructions are very clear and there are different sizing options.

The thing I love most about Amy though, is her encouragement of anyone who: 
  • wants to start quilting but doesn’t know how
  •  anyone who stresses about picking fabric and colors
  •  anyone with  a handful of small “helpers” around or
  • anyone who feels they have too little time and space to take on a quilting hobby.

Modern Basics is available at Amazon or at your favorite local fabric store, but Amy is giving away a signed copy to one of you!  For your chance to win a copy leave a comment. Please be sure to leave an email address so I can give you the good news if your name is randomly selected.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Thanks to all who entered. The winner is:
Blogger Stacy said…

I inherited a stack of traditional quilt block books from my great aunt who was a high school home-ec teacher for over 40 years. They’ve been my staple for ideas and techniques as I learn to sew and quilt.

Today I bought a new Bernina, and learned a few new modern methods. Amy’s book Modern Basics would make a great companion as I gain new skills.

thanks for the opportunity!

    how exciting!! I follow your blog from time to time (when I actually have the time!) &amp; love that you get to blog tour Amy&#39;s new book. I&#39;ve wanted to learn quilting but I always put off by the many &quot;vintage&quot; or &quot;country&quot; looking leaflets and books on quilting. This looks like a great book with a fresh, modern approach to quilting. LOVE IT! ♥
