Hi everyone!

A couple of months ago my quilting friend Mandy Leins approached me with an offer to review her new book Inspired Free-Motion Quilting, which she wrote in collaboration with the well-known quilt collector Bill Volckening.  Well, of course I said, “YES!”  Who could resist a book with the byline, “Antique Quilts Reinterpreted for Today’s Quilter!”  Not me, certainly.


In this book Bill has chosen some antique quilts from his collection that he finds especially compelling.  This tonal one took my breath away!

Pretty spectacular, huh?

Mandy then takes the designs in those quilts and reinterprets them for the modern quilter.  But the best thing is how she breaks them down into step-by-step illustrations to walk you through the process!

 

Fun, right? Mixing modern with traditional designs is my favorite!  For a chance to win an electronic copy of the book, comment below telling me what was your favorite project that you completed in 2018.  I’ll choose the winner this Sunday the 13th.

For more chances to win, stop by the other websites on the Inspired Free-Motion Quilting Blog Hop.
