You've probably heard other authors talk about what an exciting moment it is to finally hold their finished book in their hands. With Modern Patchwork it was almost as exciting for me to get back the boxes of quilts I had sent to my publisher so many months ago. I found that having the stack of quilts back at home really made me want to make some of them again - maybe in dramatically different fabrics or using some of the alternate ideas shown on the mini quilts in the book.
During the next year, I'm going to revisit each of the quilts in Modern Patchwork, highlighting one of the 12 quilts each month. You're welcome to quilt along (or just follow along) with me, starting on Thursday, July 5.
