Hello and welcome to the Sew a Modern Home blog tour and giveaway! One lucky winner will receive an e-copy of this book which is full of projects you definitely want to make.
I’m very happy for and proud of my friend, Melissa Lunden, who has written her first book, Sew a Modern Home for Martingale. For those who don’t know Melissa, she is a pattern designer who lives in Portland, OR. Her patterns are innovative and appropriate for novice quilters and experienced quilters alike. If you’d like your very own hard copy of her book, it is available on both Barnes and Nobel and Amazon. Melissa's patterns are available in her etsy shop.
In Sew a Modern Home, the projects are organized by room: living room, dining room, main bedroom, boy’s and girl’s rooms and nursery. The book also features instructions to make a picnic quilt an fun market tote.
My favorite projects include the Sharp Turn Quilt for the boy’s room. It would look great in light blue, gold and white or black, gold and white for both Bruin teams — UCLA and Boston!
The quilt for the girl’s room the Pinky Patch Quilt is scrap-friendly. A great twist on this quilt would be to replace the 4-squares with fussy cut prints.
If you are looking for fun plushies to make, Melissa has created the very cute Plushie Penguin and Octoplushie patterns. There is also the Ribbon Lattice Playmat that is decorated with ribbon. I really love that idea. Melissa suggests an option using fabric instead of ribbon. That could be a good way to use up those leftover binding strips.
The "out and about" projects feature The Bee's Knees Picnic Quilt and the Farmers' Market Tote. I am a sucker for a bag, so I will definitely be making that!
