Classic Modern Quilts

I’m excited to share a little more about the Classic Modern Quilts book today as part of a blog tour.

All of the quilts in this book are based on traditional quilt blocks and then given a modern spin. All of the contributors also discuss their thoughts on modern quilting. This is the quilt I contributed for this book. You can read more about my Modern Red Cross quilt here.

Here is a sneak peak of a few of the other quilts in the book. This one is called Blaze by Adrianne Ove.

King’s Treasure by Lynne Goldsworty

    Your quilts are just gorgeous and I love the classic modern style. I am just getting into quilting and would love your book (it is going on my Christmas wish list).

    Amy, I love your quilt in the book. It is such a clever way of putting together the design and I like the way you can see two different design depending on how you look at it. Did you quilt it or have someone else? Is that the 'square dance' pattern? I used that on a modern quilt I did and LOVE the design.

    I pinned this quilt last night off of Pinterest. I had no idea I would get to see it today in my blogroll! I love how this design works year-round and looks so modern.

    I don&#39;t know if you&#39;re giving away outside of the US, so jump over my name if you aren&#39;t! (I&#39;m in Canada.)<br /><br />I mostly just wanted to say that that quilt is really beautiful! The colours are so classic and it just looks crisp and lovely. I&#39;m a little intrigued by the fact that it doesn&#39;t ping me as being an Americana type quilt – usually red, white, and blue

    So exciting! As I was reading your post I though, &quot;ooh I like the Blaze one&quot; and then I saw it was by a friend from the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild!! I should have known I&#39;d love anything by her!

  6. says

    I absolutely love the Blaze quilt. I love the mix of bright colors with the black and white. A perfect balance of modern and classic quilting!

    This really isn&#39;t an entry (I&#39;m Australian) but I wanted to say – I *love* that King&#39;s Treasure quilt! Too gorgeous for words! I can&#39;t wait to have a look at this book and I&#39;ll definitely be buying a copy :^)

    What stunning quilts! And I love the quote on the chalkboard in one of the pics &quot;She lives life in her own little fairytale.&quot;<br />(majesticjenkinsATgmailDOTcom)

    You know, the older I get, the more I find myself drawn to the modern quilts. What the heck?? Oh, well – I really like some of the quilts you showed from the new book and I think I would love to have one for my library!<br /><br />Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    Congratulations in having your quilt included in the book! Looks like a neat book and I&#39;m keeping my fingers crossed, hehe.<br /><br />Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.<br /><br />usairdoll(at)gmail(dot)com

    I happened upon you because I was looking up how to do an orange peel quilt. Your quilts are beautiful. I would love to win a book. I&#39;m really liking the &quot;Electric Fan&quot;. Very cute.

    Hi AMy<br />I just got caught up on your last several blog posts. It looks like you got out of your funk and made a big change with sashing your Virtual Quilting Bee solids quilt. So many gorgeous projects in the works. I hope you continue to feel better. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creativity.xoxo
