I'm so excited to be sharing

*Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe*with you today as part of the big blog hop celebrating its release. The book contains nineteen projects from eighteen designers, and I'm incredibly honored to be a part of such an esteemed group of modern quilters.
My Silo quilt, complete with full instructions, is included in the book, and I have to say, this is one my of favorite projects to date. I love that it's really unique and that it's design was inspired by something so mundane as a silo.

I actually just received the quilt back from the great folks at Martingale last week to use in my Creativebug shoot this past weekend, and it was really fun to see it hanging in front of some large, metal silos near my house. You can read more about my Silo quilt, which was chosen as a winner in the fourth Project Modern Challenge by Denyse Schmidt, here and here.

*Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe*is full of amazingly gorgeous quilts, and here are some of my favorites.

Monica Solorio-Snow's quilt is called Juicy, and it certainly is with the gorgeous pops of color that are grounded with dark gray and white. It's really stunning.

John Adams designed a quilt called "A Shift in Perspective" and I really love his use of color. It is really bold and graphic and has an incredible sense of movement.

I love the minimalist feeling in Jessica Kovach's "Petal Pod." The combination of the large quantity of gray negative space is the perfect way to accentuate the prints in the pods. Gorgeous!

*Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe*is a must-have-book for any crafter's library, and I'm so excited to be giving away an e-copy for one of my readers. Just leave a comment below and I'll choose one random winner. The giveaway closes on January 29, 2013 at midnight ET. Good luck!

Please be sure to read more about the book on Martingale's blog, and visit all of the other designers who are participating in the blog hop and giveaway as well.

P.S. Please be sure to leave your email address in your comment if it's not connected to your blogger profile. Thank you!!
