Modern Blocks

My copy of Modern Blocks - 99 Quilt Blocks from your Favorite Designers is here! So many interesting blocks. Pieced, appliqued, foundations pieces - there is something for everyone.
I have two blocks in there - Higgledy Piggledy

and Stuck in the Middle.


I have one copy to giveaway (I am sorry but it is for Australians only as the postage costs for a book this heavy are completely ridiculous). You don't have to do anything tricky, just leave a comment by Tuesday 29th November 6pm telling me what you are sewing at the moment.

Oooh very cool, congrats on being published in it TWICE!! :) And thanks for giving us Aussies a chance to win a copy!

At the moment I am making a quilt top from a Sophie jelly roll and Kona charcoal for my daughter, then I am about to start on a skull quilt for my son once the fabric for it arrives :)

Emma said...

Wow this looks like a great book!! I would love a copy :) At the moment I am sewing a little cot quilt for our little girl who is due in February!

Leah said...

Congratulations! It looks like a lovely book. Right now I'm finishing off a hand quilted dolls quilt, and should be quilting a machine quilted big quilt.

Congrats on having two blocks published. Fantastic! I'm working on a few pillows at the moment... but need to make a start on my Christmas presents soon. Ahh!

Kita said...

Ohh! Pretty blocks! I like the modern take on them there, very nice.

I'm currently making myself a dress (I've very nervous at making clothing) out of my new Stylish Dress Book. It's Japanese (translated thankfully).

I'm shortly about to start a dress for my daughter (Kids stuff is so much easier to fit!)

The book and projects look great! I am quickly sewing summer clothes before it gets hot. We are mostly staying home unti I finish, lol.

Oh count me in please!
At the moment I am putting together a quilt for a new baby niece. Nothing very fancy though, just charms packs sewn together. I obviously need that book for inspiration!

Cecilia said...

I'd love some quilting inspiration, right now I'm making a nightie for my 4 year old, and seriously thinking about full bust alterations for myself, trying to talk myself into it.

Craft to Do said...

Great blocks, would love to give them a go. The main thing I am working on at the moment is a quilt for a friends 40th. I am using garden fence block with Terrain by Kate Spain and white boarders. I may try a couple of Chevron blocks in the backing. Will have to see what fabric is left over. Hugs Sandra

Hi Kate, This book looks fabulous!! Congratulations to you. I am (in between writing reports) sewing placemats to go with my new Aunty Cookie Table Runner I have just made.

Your blocks look great Kate! I'm trying to get a couple of toiletry bags made up for my son in Echino spot before he goes off to schoolies week.

Marrissa said...

LOVE IT!! I am currently sewing some gingerbread man softies for my sons for Christmas, also a small tote bag and quilted wall hanging for my Mamma :)

Hi, just to let you know that I read your blog with pleasure, nice ideas. Carry on. Well done with your blocks in the book. Unfortunately I don´t live in Australia (used to live down there), I live in Mozambique bit out of the way ;)
Have a good day and a wonderfull weekend.

That book looks like a great resource. At the moment I am attempting to sew myself some dresses from the Japanese Sewing book (translated into English) The Stylish Dress book. I haven't made clothes for myself for years! I have a wedding coming up soon & if all goes well, with attempt to make a dress to wear to that from this book as well.

What a great looking book.
I'm currently sewing a Xmas table runner as a gift for my son's Distance Education teacher.

Kirsty said...

Congrats! I love the Higgledy Piggledy. I seem to be all about geometrics in quilting lately.

Maggie said...

Congratulations! I am sewing a simple squares quilt at the moment, finally at the quilting stage.

Jo said...

Oh what a lovely book. I am sewing maxi dresses at the moment using some lovely knit fabrics. Summer is the perfect time for some great maxis!

Kris said...

Oh my gosh, I love this book! Even more now that I have discovered you are in it! I am sewing blouses for my granddaughters at the moment. And Christmas decorations. And a couple of quilts. And a sscs. That's all in the past week or so. I love to sew!

Hi There, What a gorgeous book! I love simple yet effective designs. At the moment I am reconnecting with my sewing and having a go at making a dress for my daughter. She has a budding sense of style and it's fun to make something different...and hopefully a better fit.
Love reading your blog.Fingers & toes are crossed!

The book looks fabulous!... Well done for being infused twice...

I am currently sewing christmas all-sorts including a quilt for my niece and one each for my two boys. I am also in the process of making angel costumes for the school Christmas concert, dolls clothes and pajamas.

Wow! I'd better get a move on and stop reading a fantastic blog!...

Congratulations Kate! They are great blocks. Thank you for hosting a giveaway.

Sally said...

What a fabulous book. I love your higgedly piggedly block. Fantastic.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Iris G said...

I love the book and so much want to try the new blocks. I admire the way you are able to jump from patchwork and quilting to dressmaking - once I started patchwork and quilting my dressmaking skills seems to have got lost in 1/4 inch seams - or perhaps my body shape was no longer 'Vogue'. Even if I don't win the fabulous book - I'll still be reading and enjoying your blog. Thank you ..

Congratulations on your part in the book. I'm sewing a Christmas runner at the moment and then I'll be making some clothes for some of my grandchildren
