Modern Blocks


 Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers published by C & T Publishing is available now! There have been several "sneak peeks" of some of the blocks showing up here and there...and here and there!



And today I'd like to introduce you to "Follow the Leader."  "Follow the Leader" is my contribution to the book (fabrics Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt). The inspiration for my block came from the fabric...and I've been saving the rest of my Katie Jump Rope fabrics to make a Modern Blocks sampler quilt. I just can't wait to get started!

I'm sure you'll be hearing more about this book soon--as there are many familiar names with blocks included in the book!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
