Modern Holiday – new book of Christmas quilts and projects


Modern Holiday

It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to start talking about Christmas, but if you’re anything like me, than starting the sooner, the better is a good idea. And today I have some pretty inspiration to share. It’s my turn to review a new book from Stash Books, Modern Holidayby Amanda Murphy.

Modern Holiday

This book has 18 projects – 9 quilts + multiple other projects such as a tree skirt, stockings, pillows, stuffed trees and a cute advent calendar with pockets. Each project is gorgeous and full of beautiful details. 

Modern Holiday

All of the projects in the book have a beautiful, contemporary take on traditional blocks, patterns and motifs.

Modern Holiday

I especially love this quilt called Snowfall. Truly, every quilt in the book is stunning. The patterns are also well written and beautifully diagrammed. If you’d like to see more pictures of projects from the book, visit these other stops on the blog tour:
And to make things even more exciting – I have a copy of Modern Holidayto giveaway! Just leave a comment on this post and I’ll randomly draw a winner on Saturday, July 20! Thanks Amanda and Stash Books!

Winner: Misty said…
I have heard so much about this book! Christmas is my very favorite holiday. I love the colors this book is showing. I would love to win it. Thanks for the chance.

    Such fresh, bright colors! Wondering if machine embroidery snowflakes would work instead of appliqué—love the clean look of the displayed projects. Thanks for the opportunity to win a book!

    I love the snowfall quilt too- I have been to Amanda&#39;s website before and admired her patterns. I did not realize she had written a book. Thanks for the chance to win a book. <br />Regards from Alberta, Canada,<br />Anna

    I love the projects in this book! I have some material sitting here waiting to be made into a quilt for our living room. We love to snuggle up under quilts through the winter months. Oooh! it would be so awesome to win this MODERN quilting book! I do love modern quilting and enjoying learning about the style and freedom more and more. Thank you for a chance to win!

    I came to this blog hop a little late, but I am enjoying reading everyone&#39;s take on this new book. I like the relatively quick projects that add to the Christmas spirit, without calling for big quilts.
