Modern Art Quilts Kickoff

Remember the February Book of the Month feature, Modern Art Quilts (affiliate link) by Sue Bleiweiss?

Modern Art Quilts by Sue Bleiweiss

I'm thrilled to announce the start of a blog hop that features reviews and quilts from this fun, modern art quilt book, starting with the kickoff post from C&T Publishing!

The whole schedule is as follows:
     February 25    C&T Publishing
     February 27   Terificreations
     February 28   Sulky 
     March 1           Timnatarr
     March 4           QuiltFabrication - that's me!
     March 5           Sue Bleiweiss - the author!
For an idea of what's in this book, there are several snippets of quilt projects shown in the original Book of the Month post, and I'm sure there's more through C&T. Though a tough choice of what to make, I decided on the Going in Circles quilt.    Going in Circles quilt by Sue Bleiweiss

Used as a wall hanging in the book, I decided to change the color scheme to blue, with a variety of blue star prints, and yellow as the center stripe in the circles.

Ultimately, this will be a gift for a friend who's having a baby boy around July - I hope her other two boys don't fight over it!

I'll keep you post on it's progress, with the big reveal on Monday, March 4. And if you're wondering about Med Rose - it's still waiting, but the good news is, the challenge quilt is done and looks great! Unfortunately, because some guild members follow along here, I won't reveal it until May - sorry.

Have a great day sewing!
