The new Modern Blocks book is arriving this week! I am super excited about this book, partly because I am one of the contributing authors and I have 2 quilt blocks published in the book. The book is published by Stash Books and can be purchased here.
This block was inspired by a tuxedo shirt and can easily be made for any gender or generation with just a quick change of fabric choice. Here is a fun little layout of how you can mix and match fabrics and embellishments.
I am joined by many other talented designers in this book. There are so many great blocks in this book, it is so hard to narrow down my favorites, however here is a sneak peak of just a few...
A Twist of Lemon by Ellen Luckett Baker
Checkered Fields by Yvonne Malone
Please note that there was a misprint in the book that says this block was designed by me (Angela Yosten), when it was not. This fantastic block was designed by talented Yvonne Malone and all credit should be given to her. The publisher knows of this misprint and has corrected the name in the electronic version of the book and it will be corrected in all future prints of the book.
Fussy Cut by Susanne Woods
Lemons and Limes by Latifah Saafir
