Just wanted to announce a few things to celebrate the official book release day – thank you to everyone who’s been in touch to say nice things about the book! I really appreciate it!

my book event at Modern Domestic

First – I’m giving away a fun prize, thanks to Bolt Fabric Boutique: a set of eight fat quarters I picked out to celebrate the book release! I’m pairing the fabrics with a signed copy of the book. To enter, just leave a comment on this West Coast Crafty post by midnight Pacific time Thursday, March 31, letting me know your favorite thing about Log Cabin quilting. I’ll draw a winner on Friday, April 1! [Note: Sorry if this was confusing, I’ve emailed everyone who’s commented here – please leave a comment over there to enter. Thanks so much for the lovely comments on log cabin!]

  1. I look forward to picking up the book. I love log cabin quilting. Such beautiful patters and simple in that a new quilter like me can follow along!! 🙂

  2. Thanks for the giveaway and congrats on the book! It looks awesome. My favorite thing about log cabin quilting is being able to use up scraps of fabric!

  3. I love how log cabins can be so different based on which fabrics you use. what a great book!

  4. I love simple patterns that yield surprisingly complex results and log cabin is definitely that! Congratulations on your book and I wish you the best!

  5. Beautiful book! My favorite thing about log cabin quilting is that it’s stash busting. Have a great book tour!

  6. I’m looking forward to working with your book. What I love about the “Modern Quilting” style is that it is so fun to look at and fun to do. Congratulations on what is sure to be a popular book.

  7. I am trying to find this book at nearest Barnes and Noble. Wish me luck – I love the cross quilt.

  8. My favorite thing is the way a clearly traditional block can become modern through choice of fabric, pattern, amount of wonkiness, making something that is at once linked to the quilts my mother and grandmother made and a reflection of me, circa 2011. Thanks for the giveaway!
