I’m so pleased to be showing you Susan Beal’s latest book, Modern Log Cabin Quilting, and offering a sweet giveaway today. You can read why Susan loves log cabin quilting and view projects from the book made by others at the Flickr group.
This book introduces you to log cabin quilts, gives you all the information you need to sew your own, including tools and techniques, and offers a range of projects.
This is the Bright Furrows quilt, I like the cheerful colors. There are a whole range of quilts using both huge blocks and lots of small ones. There are a number of special quilt projects including a t-shirt quilt to save those worn out shirts that hold memories, an Anniversary quilt and the cozy Winter Woolens quilt.
Above is the Northwest Modern quilt, I like how it’s random. There is also a whole section on household items like tea towls, aprons, pillow cases and a pincushion.
I like the Red Cross bag which uses both corduroy and cotton fabrics. There are a nuber of bags, including a super simple drawstring bag, a zipper pouch, and a market tote. (A way to use up your fabric stash and make gifts at the same time!)
This Charming Camera Case is easy (and uses some stealth velcro).
I’m thoroughly charmed by the quilts and projects in this book, they are fresh and inspiring. So I’m very happy to have both a copy of the book and a fabric kit to give away.
If you’d like to enter please leave a comment with this post, and if you’d like please do take the time to share any quilting projects (or disasters) you’ve undertaken. I’ll go first: I’ve never quilted anything! Clearly I will have to change that very soon. You have until noon Pacific time on Thursday, April 7th to enter. The usual fine print applies. Good luck! The winner as chosen by the Random Number Generator is #45, Emily. Congrats! And thanks to everybody for entering!
