Quilt as you Go Made Modern, sneak peak!

Before I start,  I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to all
that have been on this journey with me. I’ve had a lot of you following
me for quite some time, and a lot of new faces as well (welcome!). Your
kind words and enthusiasm for my work and tutorials keeps my creativity
going at full steam.
That being said, last Thursday I was a very happy girl! An advanced copy of my book Quilt-As-You-Go Made Modern was delivered to me, along with flowers from my wonderful publisher! It felt amazing…and just, surreal…to be holding it and flipping through my book! All of the long hours and work that went into it definitely paid off, as I am just ecstatic to share this technique with all of YOU!
This post is mostly pictures, but I wanted to reiterate just how passionate I am about this technique. You’re literally quilting-as-you-go onto smaller (thus more manageable) batting blocks making it practical to finish a quilt all on your own while achieving intricate quilting! Plus it’s a fun, non-fussy and super creative way to quilt!
And now for the fun stuff…here are some sneak peaks of the book and some Quilt as you Go projects that will be in it!
Being from Seattle, you’ll notice that I gave all fo the quilts Seattle-themed (or Northwesty) names 🙂 This one, for instance, is called Cascade Range. My hubby took this picture on our camping trip a couple weekend ago.
It was a teepee camping trip…yes teepee camping exists! And it was awesome! This one is called Chief Sealth.



And for all of you Paige fans…she has a half page spread in the book! I know, i know, she’s such a little diva dog.



I hope you enjoyed the pictures! That’s it for now. But before I go I will leave you with a beautiful quilt that I just finished. I will have the pattern available in my little Etsy Shop this week.

Thank you for stopping by, and for all of your enthusiasm and support! 🙂 happy quilting!

    Congrats on your new book! I'm excited to get my copy! I love the northwest flavor of your book. I grew up on the "wet" side, but am now enjoying the sunshine and wide open spaces of eastern WA. I hope to make it to one of your classes eventually. Congratulations!!

    Congrats. Copy on order. When it arrives, winter will be just around the corner (cold Alberta) so I will be in my sewing room a lot more. So looking forward to this book.

    Would be so happy if you could do a class in Bellingham! Can't wait to get your book, but a class would be super fun, too!

    this looks like a terrific book! I found about it on Diary of a Quilter!

    Good morning

    I just purchased your book “quilt as you go made modern”. On pages 28 and 29 and 30. You did not explain how to complete back of quilt. It was my understanding that the backing is attached and then a strip is attached and hand stitched. Is there a site I can go to that will explain it more fully.

    Thank you

    Chief Sealth was my first ever quilt! I love it.
