Classic Modern Quilts just landed on my doormat today. Scroll to the end of the post if you'd like to get your hands on a copy of this elusive book.
Ten quilts. Each one a modern twist on historical Kansas City Star Blocks. Mine is called King's Treasure, named after a game my kids play in the garden where someone is at base (usually the trampoline), everyone else hides around the garden and has get back back to base. Do you know the game I mean and what do you call it?! I made this quilt using Shelburne Falls by Denyse Schmidt and it is probably the least modern quilt in the book as really I am a traditional quilt maker at heart.
This much more modern quilt was designed and made by Amy Smart who is one of my favourite modern quilters. On top of which, for a while many moons ago, we lived within about a mile of each other in London without ever knowing each other or knowing that one day we would take up quilting and become friends across the great divide of the Atlantic Ocean.
Another quilt I love in this book is made by another online friend, Adrienne Ove. I love how fresh, bright and simple this one is.
