Welcome to the Modern Heirloom Quilting Book Blog Hop!
My name is Katherine, and I have been pattern testing quilts for quilt designers now for the past two years. I volunteered to pattern test for @alderwoodstudios back in January 2021. I absolutely love modern quilt designs and Amber's syle is so original, eye catching and modern. Making her quilt designs has been such fun, and when Amber asked if I would like to participate in her Quilting Book Blog Hop, I was like... YASSS, sign me up!
Being one of Amber's pattern testers has increased my quilting skills so much. One thing that I love about her designs, is that they always look so impactful and complicated. Amber breaks down the instructions in her patterns so well, they are easy to understand and the quilts are REALLY exciting to make. As I maker its an absolute joy to watch it come together before your very eyes, for your own big reveal right at the very end. Modern Heirloom Quilting 12 Contemporary Quilts for the Modern Home, is full of beautiful original modern quilt patterns for you to enjoy and make.
The Clementine Quilt
The Clementine Quilt in Amber's new book Modern Heirloom Quilting, is a perfect example of a beautiful elegant and clever design....AND this one is all about strips!
Using my favourite fabrics, AGF Pure Solids, I chose Nocturnal, a beautiful dark inky navy blue, and Snow White for a sparkling contrasting accent.
These second cut strips are all different sizes and all look really cool! At this point I was so impatient, and I still could not really imagine how it was going to come together. Too excited to do anything other than to...keep going....(midnight quilter mentality!)
Top Tip: Make sure you keep labelling as you go. Don't get your pieces all muddled up. Keep them all in nice little piles of fabric.
Once you start piecing the blocks, everything comes together really quickly, and before you know it..... you end up with this beauty before your eyes.
As you can see, the Clementine Quilt pattern in Amber's new book is exceptionally impactful and elegant. It has beautiful clean lines which looks exquisite in the modern home.
Amber's instructions are so clear in her new book and it is full of absolutely gorgeous photography and wonderful colour ideas. You will absolutely find something in there that will suit your taste and something that you will want to want to make. I have already got my eyes on my next project from Modern Heirloom Quilting.
