Modern designs for CLASSIC QUILTS

GIVEAWAY IS OVER, THANKS!

Today, I have the privilege to share with you a new quilt book by Andie and Kelly called "Modern designs for CLASSIC QUILTS"!


Love...love....love...this book!  Everything about it, from content....to photography....to techniques....to picture tutorials...and of course the fantastic quilts and quilt patterns!!


I've known Andie through blogging before her book writing journey.  Her blog was one of the first I followed and I liked it because she is a very real in her writing.   Well.... apparently Andie likes my longarm quilting skills and asked if I would quilt a couple of quilts for a "project" she was working on....a project that had to do with a future book!  No pressure for me, none what so ever!  Ha!  ;o)

This spider web quilt is called "Effie's Web".



..and it's a beauty!  I loved quilting it up!

This New York Beauty quilt is called "Midtown Girl".



I really love how this one turned out!

These are only a couple of many awesome quilts in Andie and Kelly's book and to celebrate with them I'm having a book GIVEAWAY!!


Anyone is welcome to enter the giveaway and staying on the theme of Classic Quilts....Answer this question for the Giveaway:  What "Curved" classic quilt or block would you like to see done Modern and easier the Quick Curve Ruler way?

Have fun and good luck!  

The Giveaway will end tomorrow night.

Jen Vangsness said...

I'm looking forward to the DWR quilt pattern!

Caryn said...

I am also looking forward to te double wedding ring quilt. It Wouk be amazing to find a quicker way to piece one. Thanks for te chance.

Mary said...

The book looks fantastic! I would also like to see a double wedding ring. It has been on my bucket list for a long time.

quiltmania said...

How about a drunkards path! Love the traditional patterns so I'm sure you can do something wonderful with them.

Kathy said...

I love the classic curved "Winding Ways" block. It usually involves templates so if there was a way to make it with your ruler I would be great!

Amy Losordo said...

Can we try Dresden Plate? I love how you think outside the box.

Geta Grama said...

Fabulous quilting on those quilts.
Double wedding ring - it's time to make one!

Jenny said...

drunkard's path needs a modern update!

Roolen said...

oh... that's interesting question ... ) How about the Drunkard's Path?

Kathy said...

I agree - Drunkard's Path. I've never made one, but would like to try an easier method than cutting with templates by hand.

The book looks great - thanks for the giveaway chance!

Jane said...

I've would like to see an oak leaf and reel made with you templates--old-fashioned pattern that could be very interesting with modern fabrics and techniques. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kim S said...

You are amazing... and I love what you're doing with the DWR!!! That would be my choice for a classic curve :-)

barbara woods said...

wedding ring of course i would love to make one someday

Sharon S said...

How about a classic Orange Peel. Love the look of the ones from the 1800's.

Gill said...

How about 'Pickledish'??

Soile Kivinen said...

DWR, i have never done it, but now I'll wait your version.

Big Hello from Finland, you have a great blog. I'm a new owner Statler and thsi is just what I need. :D

Soile

Charlotte said...

A Storm At Sea block...fun topic.

Jennifer said...

Grandmother's Cross?

Lynn said...

Pinwheels!!

I love what you are doing with your ruler!

Julie said...

Double Wedding Ring....this book looks amazing!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

How about the Double Wedding Ring? I love this quilt. I have made a couple, but would be interested in seei.g the ruler results>

CLS said...

I think the centre block of an Irish Chain could nicely be done with the curved ruler.

Lisa Marie said...

I don't really know a block that hasn't been suggested as I don't really do much with curves. I sure would like to have this book though.

mtnquiltr said...

I'm ready to do a Dresden plate, but I'm scared of the curves!

LeKaQuilt said...

An Bow tie block woud be perfect.

Becky (My Fabric Obsession) said...

hmm.. maybe the apple core quilt? Love the quilts you showed. Amazing quilting as always!

Frog Quilter said...

How about a double wedding ring.

Anna said...

I would just like to learn any curve quilting that led me to your lovely blog!

Tamie said...

I love the pickle dish block. Thanks for participating in the tour.

Cindy said...

I love making the Winding Ways block. Would be interesting to see what you'd come up with that block design updated with your ruler. :)

I LOVE how you quilted that New York Beauty quilt!

Anonymous said...

All suggested sound great! The book looks great too

Lynn said...

Double Wedding Ring is my first choice, but I know you already have that one in the works. Second choice is a pieced Orange Peel block. I love this block but I will never make an entire quilt with it since the traditional method requires applique.

Becky said...

I was thinking Pickledish too. How about a Lemoyne star?

Becky said...

How about Chinese Lanterns? I just bought your ruler and 2 patterns at a craft fair yesterday and am looking forward to learning a new technique!

Hitch and Thread said...

Winding ways would be great. I've always loved it but been scared by the curves.

Claudia said...

Ohhhhhhh The Double Wedding Ring ~~ !!....that would be great.

B Greene said...

I was thinking Drunkard's Path or Pickledish also. Thanks for the peek inside the book - it looks great!

ritainalaska said...

i've a drunkards path on lmy list ... i'd like to see a modern version. thanx for the chance at a copy of this marvelous book.

Lori S said...

Love your quilting on the New York Beauty! The first things that came to mind were Storm at sea, or chevrons. Can't wait to see what you cook up!

regan said...

I was thinking pickle dish, too! Thanks for the chance....this book looks great! And I LOVE the two quilts you showed! Awesome!

Doris said...

Winding Ways, always been a fave of mine...

Bri said...

I am waiting for the double wedding ring pattern. So exciting!

Deb said...

My daughter is working on a double wedding ring quilt now and hand-quilting it. So I'd pick to do that one with a modern twist.

capitolaquilter said...

Storm at Sea is on my to do list and I think the curved nature of the quilt pattern might lend nicely to the QCR.

Swedish Scrapper said...

Pi kledish? Drunkard's path? I know others have already suggested these, bit they are what I'd like to see too! Thanks for the chance to win this wishlist book!

Holli said...

DWR! Beautiful quilting!

Kathryn said...

I'd like to see a curve around a log cabin block. A circular home of the future?!

Rachelle said...

Drunkards Path would be the one I'd like to see made modern.

marcella said...

Love your quilting! I've been dying to try a Pickledish quilt but oh, the terror of those pieces :-) Maybe you can make it modern and simpler - am I asking too much?

Melia Mae Quilting said...

The quilts you did were absolutely gorgeous! Maybe a modern take on the hourglass quilt.

Lisa E said...

Love Midtown Girl. Very, very nice! How about updating the Orange Peel block?

VickiT said...

Wow. You're quilting is amazing on that quilt. And the quilts shown in your post are beautiful.

I don't know if it's possible but, I'd love to see a Dresden done.

Regina C. said...

I would say drunkards path.

Sharon said...

what a great looking book! and as usual, your quilting is phenomenal. hmm, maybe we could figure out a more friendly version of the "eyelash" quilt pattern

Cheryl said...

I'd have to say the double wedding ring quilt. Your quilting is just beautiful.

Jodi - usairdoll said...

A quilt that I'd love to make one day is the Double Wedding Ring. I'm a new follower and saw that you've been working on a faster and easier pattern. Can't wait! So many great suggestions posted .

Thank you, Kelly, Andie and F&W Media for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win.

LJ said...

Yikes! That question is a toughie cuz I haven't been quilting all that long. Any curvey quilt would be great for me. The only curvey quilts I can think of right now are Drunkard's Path and New York Beauty...

Alayna Coombs said...

I think a Pineapple Block would be SO fun!

Anonymous said...

Bear's Paw. I thing that would look fantastic with the Quick Curve Ruler

Kristina said...

I think either the Cathedral Windows, Eyelash block or Pineapple Block would be great to try using your ruler. Thanks for the chance of the giveaway.

Barbie Mills said...

I think Pam's idea of a Spiderweb would be perfect. I also wonder if you could do something New York Beauty-ish?

I LOVE all of the details in how you quilted the Midtown Girl quilt. Just perfect.

Julie in GA said...

The curved design I want to try is Winding Ways--not sure when I will be ready to try that one. Your quilting on the book projects is beautiful!

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

A modern Dresden would be fun. Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

Anne said...

I've been wanting to do an Orange Peel quilt for some time now. The quilting for the book is fantastic.

Sue said...

I think storm at sea has a lot of possibilities with the ruler. Not stictly a curved block, but was that look. Also winding ways!

Wendy Swears said...

Drunkard's Path was my very first quilt back in 1976. Who knew curves weren't for beginners! I would love to make it over with a simpler method than tracing around cardboard 1,000 times!

Jackie M said...

What about the winding way quilt pattern?

Cindy Sews said...

I would like to see a Dresden block done up in this easier manner!

Dina said...

I've been loving the star quilts I've seen, especially the wonky ones. How about some curved up stars? Thanks for the chance to win the book!

Teresa Silva said...

I think double wedding ring would be so neat! What incredible quilting you did on these quilts. Just absolutely amazing! Congratulations, Jenny!

Mary Marcotte said...

What a great idea, Jenny! Thanks for the chance. How about an orange peel block, or drunkard's path, maybe double wedding ring. Can you see my problem? I'm going to behave and go with wedding ring, but trust me, it's NOT an easy choice!
Mary

shannonhicks said...

I'm with the others that would LOVE to see a DWR pattern using your Curve tool! I've had fabric to make my daughter and SIL one for their wedding for 4 years now. Maybe I could actually get one done by their 5th anniversary!

Marcy said...

The Monkey Wrench would look marvelous curved!

Nellie Duclos said...

I would love to see a modern basket block that's really different. I am making a quilt for a friend and have chosen to use traditional and contrast with modern blocks but would love more ideas. Thanks for the opportunity to win a great book.

Ethne said...

Ah, you know that I've already suggested Storm at Sea - but how about a twist on a NYB segment?

knitandpatch said...

The NYB is so great, I love it.
I would like to see the double wedding ring as a pattern and the traditional block I love most is 54-40 or fight, how about that on in a curved way?
Saskia

QuiltSue said...

I've been playing with my ruler for a while now, and had just worked out the Double Wedding Ring block with it, before you posted that you were doing it.

I think instructions would be very popular for this block.

Joan and Kevin said...

Thanks for the giveaway!
I am thinking Double Wedding Ring!

SewSealy said...

How about "Rob Peter to Pay Paul"? I think that would be interesting. :)

Ms. Hennes said...

Would love to see Drunkards Path also! Book looks wonderful!

Anonymous said...

Double Wedding Ring or Durnkerds path

Judy said...

The friendship star is one of my favorite blocks. I think it would look great made with your ruler. I like the looks of this book and hope I win.

Judy

kitty said...

I have a Winding Ways UFO on my conscience and would love to try a different approach!!
Thank you for a chance to win this great book!

Cher in Victoria said...

Love the Spider web quilt but if you thoughtabout the DWR or the storm at sea would be great. Love the quilting
must have taken forever........

Marj said...

I would love to see the friendship star or just a sampler of all different kinds of stars done with the QCR. Thanks for all you share and design. Also thank you for the chance to win a copy of the book.

Mark and Judy said...

Thank you for the opportunity to win the book described above. I'd be thrilled with any of the previously mentioned classic quilt patterns. On my 'to-do' list is a DWR quilt so I'm most intrigued with your efforts in that direction. Love your blog!

Newmoon said...

I would love to see Wedding ring or Dresdan Plate.

Barbara @ Nähtante Quilts said...

I'd love to see the Double Wedding Ring. I'm so intrigued by the pattern, but I can't muster the courage to start a DWR quilt.

Nancy said...

Jenny, your quilting on that New York Beauty is out of this world! I'm not entering the giveaway--I already have the book. I just wanted you to know that I think your quilting is amazing. Great work!

SewLindaAnn said...

You got me looking in the book by Maggie Malone, "5500 Quilt Block Designs" with your question. Block no. 3498 Ferris Wheel, Block no. 3535 Grist Mill and block 3550 Carolina Favorite and 3599 Pointed Ovals are just a few I'd love to try. I wonder too, if there's a way to interpret Snails Trail with your ruler.

FiberofAll Sorts said...

Lovely quilts as always. I don't know a ton of traditional stars. There is a set for each state and it would be interesting to see if those could be curved-up.

awalters_nc@yahoo.com said...

Drooling over this book. How about the winding ways block.

Beth said...

Hmmm...maybe an orange peel quilt?

Your ruler is on my wish list--can't wait to dive in.

Miss Nancy said...

I am thinking Drunkard's Path! Thank you for this great giveaway! The book looks most interesting.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

Sara said...

I like the pickle dish quilts.

Donna said...

Log Cabin? Love the book and your quilting!

Razzle Dazzle Quilter said...

How about Storm at Sea curved up?

Love that book!

Cheers

Caroline Heinrichs said...

I'd like to see another version of Drnkards Path made up.

Shar said...

I would like to see the Irish chain quilted. I love this pattern, but have struggled with the quilting design.

ANudge said...

Fabulous quilting, fabulous quilts! I'd like to see a curved pattern of the square within a square block. Thanks for the chance. It looks like a marvelous book.

Trudi said...

Looks like a great book! Does the design I sent you count? No idea what it was called, but loved it!

Nita said...

Oh, your quilting is just breath-taking. When I grow up I want to quilt just like you, lol! I see people mentioning the Winding Ways block. I would agree with that one.

Quilter In Paradise said...

Oh! I have to have this book! I would like to see the contrary wife done with the ruler,, wonder how that would work?

Please pick me!

Helen said...

Love this book, your great quilting, and I loved meeting Andie and Kelly at Market. We had a great evening with good food and better company!

Susana said...

Me gusta improvisar las curvas .Una plantilla con distintos ángulos de ondulación?
Increíble regalo.Cariños.

. said...

The quilting on the spider web quilt and the New York beauty was wonderful, love them!

Maegan said...

These quilts are stunning! Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.

I'm very new to quilting, but I think I have to echo those who have piped up in favor of the wedding ring quilt. Even before I was interested in quilting, I've wanted to make one (and I love the new "single girl" version as well).

Chris said...

I want to do so many curved quilt blocks - double wedding ring, drunkard's path, dresden plate, and pickle dish! They're all gorgeous, but tough to execute.

Mama Pea said...

Sorry I missed out. I would love this book. Guess I'll have to go buy it. haha! I LOVE the quilting you did. No surprise they loved your quilting enough to have you quilt for them!

Furball Farm Quilting said...

Easy peasy......PICKLEDISH!!! I'd love to see what you would come up with using the QCR. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.
