Happy Valentine’s Day! Don’t tell my hubby, but I’ve fallen in love again!
Ever had something come along at just the right time that fills a need perfectly?
Modern Curves and Bold Stripes is that thing in my life right now! This new book by Heather Black and Daisy Aschehoug is AMAZING, friends. Just when I found myself saying over and over again that I’d love to do more curved piecing, along comes this book chock full of absolutely beautiful curved piecing patterns.
The cutting diagrams and piecing instructions for each pattern are very descriptive and so well laid out, but my favorite part is the “Getting Started” section in the front of the book. There, Heather and Daisy give you all the info, techniques and tricks you’ll need to make accurate curved and striped blocks.
The fact that these quilt all have both curves AND stripes really makes for some cool designs. The two components compliment each other so well and add a lot of visual interest to the patterns. And I love that most of the quilts have both printed and pieced stripe options, so you can really customize your quilt just the way you want it.
It’s really hard to choose a favorite pattern in the book, but ONE of my favorites (and the first quilt I plan on making) is Sunset Horizons. My youngest looked through the book with me and chose it for his next quilt. It is number 4 on my UFO challenge for this year. My version will be navy, white, grey and burgundy… all fabrics chosen by Nathan!
Heather and Daisy have very graciously provided me with a copy of their book to give away! The give away will be held solely on my Instagram account, so visit there to enter.
