I do love a good modern quilt. Thanks to Amanda Jean and Cheryl’s Sunday Morning Quilts, I just might be a convert to “Scrap Modern Quilts!” C&T Publishing has been nice enough to provide us with 3 copies of this wonderful book to giveaway!
At first, I flicked through the book and I loved the Up Up and Away design…
Then after a few more turns of the page I found The Original Ticker Tape quilt, The Missing U, Sunday Morning, Splash, and the Checkerboard, then the Gum drops and on I went falling in love with every new design for twenty minutes. With each turn of the page I would imagine a different combination of my precious fabric scraps in these wonderful designs.
But where to start? I know I have scraps – I am a quilter after all. But they are just shoved in one, well okay, a couple of plastic tubs. Not to fear, these ladies have a great idea for getting all those scraps organized and used! So I started by making a few color specific boxes (I was tempted to use my stash not just scraps, but I figure that’s okay – right?)
Here’s a little peak at the Up Up and Away quilt I’ve begun putting together.
All of us here at Connecting Threads really love following along on Amanda Jean’s Crazy Mom Quilts site. Over the past few years, she has inspired us with her projects and delighted us with her stories. If we get so much from her site, you can only imagine how wonderful we think her book is!
