Modern Quilts & More Book Giveaway!

orangezest1
Okay, so this first picture is for Kimberly - only for you friend!  My hair is crazy today!

Anyway, I am so excited to share with you Kimberly Einmo's new book, Modern Quilts & More recently published by AQS Publishing. I have known for a long time that the quilt Orange Zest, the one I quilted for Kimberly was going to be on the cover of the book. Yay! So, today I received the book in the mail and I can not tell you how excited I was!  Best mail day in a long time!!

Perfect timing on all parts, I actually have Orange Zest in my possession to show off at the HMQS show next week.  So, I was so thrilled to take pictures of the book and quilt together.  Now I can finally share this quilt I quilted forever ago.

Kimberly has outdone herself and the quilts in this book are fabulous!  You will love this new book, I am sure of it.  You can purchase a signed copy of the book from Kimberly here.

I have to tell you that I still pinch myself to think that I get to share my quilting with so many people and to be on the cover of Kimberly's book is nothing short of an honor that I am so grateful for.

I also have to give a shout out to the Editor's at AQS for making this book fantastic, the layout is beautiful!  Of course I am thrilled and maybe a little bias ;-) towards them since my own book was released in December, but they really do a wonderful job when it comes to their publishing.

So, what do you think of the quilting?  I absolutely love it.  It was so fun to quilt up.

Of course, anything by Kimberly is going to be amazing. Congrats on making the cover! And I think your hair looks cute. :)

The white on white is beautiful - I wonder how it would come across if you used blue with white threads - creating a french ambiance - somewhat like redwork

Unknown said...

I became a quilter at the age of 52 because of modern quilting. I've sewn since I was 8 or 9, continued to make my own clothing for prom, weddings, college and even made opera costumes during college for my work study.

I would love to win the book. Thanks for being so inspiring.
