Welcome to our stop on the Quilts Made Modern blog tour! Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr, from FunQuilts and Craft Nectar, team up once again in Quilts Made Modern. The book includes 10 new projects focused on a modern approach to quiltmaking, with lots of great information about color theory, fabric selection, and elements of design. Bill designs patterns, while Weeks walks readers through the design process with her clear instructions and advice. As a team they’ve produced a beautiful variety of patterns, ranging in complexity to guide and challenge both beginning and experienced quilters.
Weeks is offering up a FREE pattern for the Hopscotch Pillow on the chair in the quilted Birds on a Wire project photo below, just for Sew,Mama,Sew! readers. (Aren’t those birds amazing?!) The pillow accommodates a standard insert; Weeks writes that although she made the pillow for the shoot, she fell in love and it now rests happily on her sofa!
