We’re excited to help Jessica Levitt kick off the blog tour for her new book, Modern Mix: 16 Sewing Projects That Combine Designer Prints & Solid Fabrics. The book includes patterns for seven quilts, pillows, bags and more, and shows you how to integrate large-scale prints and bright solids to best feature the designer fabrics you love.
The book is organized into chapters based on the use of solids in each pattern. From the Stash blog:
- Back Me Up—using solid fabrics as a background for your favorite prints
- Strips and Stripes—adding strips of solids to highlight your gorgeous prints
- Accentuate the Positive—little bits of solid colors to bring out the best in pattern
- Steal the Show—piecing solids as the focus of your project
Your comment today enters you to win a copy of Modern Mix: 16 Sewing Projects That Combine Designer Prints & Solid Fabrics.

The pattern gives you insight into the style of projects in the book, and shows you how Jessica’s clear instructions help guide you to create a perfect “modern mix” of fabrics.
