18 Apr Modern Patchwork Giveaway!
Modern Patchwork is hot off the presses and, thanks to the lovely people at Interweave, I have two copies to give away!
This magazine surely includes a project for everyone – the main categories are quilts, kitchen and dining, gifts and accessories, home decor and bags and totes. Most of the quilts are throw size, which is so versatile, but my favorite quilt in the magazine (aside from my own :)) is Paula Prass’ “Regency Squared”. It is written for 80″ x 90″ but could easily be adjusted since it is block based. It has exactly the kind of graphic punch that I love. Of course, there are also lots of smaller projects that call to me as well – especially some of the bags. I’m always drawn to bag patterns, even though I rarely make them. (Why not?)
There are some great articles in here too – I especially enjoyed the article about the NYC Modern Quilt Guild quilting in public to raise awareness that quilting is an exciting contemporary activity. I’ll be looking into whether my local MQG would like to do this too – it sounds like so much fun!
Here is a full shot of my quilt, Maynard Plaza. It is my favorite throw size, about 50″ x 70″, and was inspired by a building near where my daughter used to go to dance class. I spent lots of time over the years staring up at it while waiting for her to finish class 🙂
To enter, leave me a comment telling me what kind of project you are most looking forward to making this Spring. If you don’t follow me on any of my social media places, I’d love it if you’d sign up, but it is not a requirement for the giveaway. BUT, no-reply-bloggers and WordPress users especially – don’t forget to include an email address in your comment. You can’t win if I can’t reach you! The giveaway will remain open through the end of the day on Saturday, April 20. Good luck!

I am going to finish a matador quilt–just the suggestion of his hunky figure–that I set aside to make three baby quilts. Saludos de Mexico!

I am so glad to have found your site. It is awesome. I plan on making wall hanging for my living room
AnnyPosted at 22:22h, 11 August
Very nice!! I am looking to make something non-traditional looking, fresh and something I could get done in a couple of weekends working on this project.
Have not seen the magazine, will have to go look for it.

What a great pattern! I love quilts with lots of negative space. This spring I'm hoping to finally make a quilt for me – all my quilts are always gifts!
jeifnerPosted at 18:07h, 21 April
I've been trying to get people to do Plein Air sewing with me for years! If painters can do it outside so can we right ? 🙂

Congrats, Debbie. How wonderful I love this quilt. I am working on 2 wedding quilts this spring and am looking forward to working on a tea towel challenge quilt.
lareeinbcPosted at 01:00h, 20 April
I love the colors you chose. I am just getting back into quilting after many years away, and am working on a quilt for my newly married daughter and son-in law. Then, I am looking forward to working with some solids and trying out some new modern quilt ideas, as this is new and exciting to me. Thanks for sharing your work!
Flint HandmadePosted at 20:51h, 19 April
Beautiful quilt! Love the colors and the subway tile feel. I am most looking forward to making a quilt for my new niece or nephew. 🙂
HarrysmumPosted at 20:20h, 19 April
Well done on your cover quilt – it's stunning!
I've been making myself finish one WIP before I allow myself to start another quilt, so I'm looking forward to finishing my scrappy hearts quilt so I can get on with a baby quilt for my nephew before his christening!
JennaPosted at 20:17h, 19 April
Yay! Your quilt looks lovely. And I am also interested in the Retro Flowers quilt that I believe is in this issue, too! Congrats, Debbie! And great work!
RamonaPosted at 18:54h, 19 April
Congratulations on being published. How awesome is that. I do love this quilt, even more now that I see the full view. Gonna have to make this one. Thanks for the inspiration.
As for what I'm working on… the list is just too long! I'm looking forward to starting the new Amite Textiles BOM. That's different for me.

I am looking forward to making a very hungry caterpillar quilt for my little girl!
Casey YorkPosted at 15:57h, 19 April
Congratulations on making the cover! You quilt is beautiful–well deserved. I just started a quilt that will have to be long-arm quilted, so I am looking forward to visiting my LQS to play with their machine again sometime soon!

I'm looking forward to making some cute spring dresses for my daughter.

Love the colors of your quilt! I am working on a project for school and am finishing up a pillow for us that I am extremely happy about. My colors – turquoise, aqua, sea foam – just very soothing and relaxing, plus, I'm using pieces from some of my favorite fabric lines that I've collected for years.
ChayPosted at 13:53h, 19 April
Just finishing the first quilt I'm actually going to use on my bed – the pattern is puzzle box using Kona solids. I also made quilted pillow shams. Thanks for the giveaway, that mag looks inspiring.
Artsy-Craftsy IvyPosted at 13:38h, 19 April
I'm finishing up a hexy table runner.
Kathy McDonaldPosted at 11:37h, 19 April
Such a gorgeous quilt! Really elegant. I am finishing up hand quilting a solids quilt from a Cherry House design. Looking forward to a new bed quilt for me when that quilt goes to its recipient at last.
Ether BournPosted at 03:59h, 19 April
Love your quilt. I am moving my sewing to my bonus room from my guest room right now. I rented my home out for the Master's golf tournament and now I am taking advantage of clearing my sewing from our guest room to make the move. I'll have more room and a TV in my new area. I just hope my husband doesn't mind sewing things on the pool table. He's a little too picky about that table!
Glenda EdwardsPosted at 03:50h, 19 April
Hi I just came across your blog and love it. I am really enjoying the Skill Builder BOM with Alyissa and hope to get onto my quilting of my blocks. Just loving doing these coming into our winter (not spring for us) here in OZ. Cheers. firstname.lastname@example.org
EricaPosted at 03:13h, 19 April
I am most looking forward to being able to set up a sewing room in one of the bedrooms vacated by my recently-married daughters. As for sewing, I have some pretty PB&J fabric on order to make a quilt for my own bed! Your quilt is lovely and the magazine looks like a good one!
DorriePosted at 02:29h, 19 April
I just love it! Linear is my thing! I'm working on a quilt for my son's bed~all gray, bordeaux and linen! Your projects are amazing!
B GreenePosted at 02:19h, 19 April
What a wonderful quilt – so stunning! I am finishing all my UFOs – one is almost quilted and then i need to turn a quilt top into a Christmas tree skirt. Then … a new project – Yippee!!!
DebPosted at 01:50h, 19 April
Beautiful quilt! I've not got plans to do some spring cleaning of my UFO pile and finish a few things off next.
DeePosted at 01:42h, 19 April
I am cleaning up UFO's, just finished one from 2008.
Also started a new quilt all black and white, hope to finish it this spring.
Thanks for the give away,
BethPosted at 01:06h, 19 April

Love your quilt! I am most looking forward to finishing a bunch of quilts and re-setting my studio for the next thing– my unfinished tops are proliferating (again).
YCPosted at 18:15h, 18 April
Ooh, I was sad I missed the first issue of this magazine. I'm looking forward to making and using some much needed home dec — pretty pillows and napkins!

I never knew this magazine existed till now!! I am working on making a wedding quilt for my brother who is getting married in October, a scrappy trip around the world using modern pinks, aquas, greys and blacks, their declared favorite colors! Thank you for this giveaway and opening my world!
DorisPosted at 17:50h, 18 April
Beautiful quilt, I did get the first issue of this magazine and loved it, but haven't had a chance to pick it up since. Looking forward to making a bag this Spring (I too pick out patterns and fabrics and then take forever to getting around to making them…) dorisbrunnette(at)gmail(dot)com
Kat ScottPosted at 17:32h, 18 April
Striking quilt! … and one that is easily adaptable to any color palette. Am trying new techniques on a "plethora of pillows" for gifts and raffles. Love the quick gratification finishes. Also finishing a couple of baby quilts that are loooooong overdue!
AmandaPosted at 17:10h, 18 April
Hoping to get around to my Swoon! Must finish up a few WIPs first though 🙂
Pam Quiltaholic BiswasPosted at 16:49h, 18 April

Congratulations Debbie! Love your quilt! It is really graphic, simple still really striking. Thanks a lot for the giveaway. This spring I plan to make quilts, quilts, quilts. I have a couple of fabric stacks and ideas that I would really want to tackle.

Hello there. I'm most looking forward to assembling a 'bee' quilt this spring. Thank you. This magazine looks fabulous
KellySPosted at 14:32h, 18 April
This quilt is gorgeous! Congratulations on making the cover! I am hoping to sew along with Alyssa at Pile O' Fabric for her Retro Rubies quilt that is in this magazine. But I also really need to finish my sons' quilts and my bee quilt. Too many projects and not enough time! kasmith_02(at)hotmail(dot)com
Amy StevensonPosted at 14:21h, 18 April
Oh, my, your quilt is amazing! I have a number of low volume solids I'm looking forward into turning into a quilt, but I have a number of projects cut or half done that are in line before that! So, I can hope it is done in spring, but I'm not so sure I'll get to it.
