Modern Mix: Book Review and Giveaway

Modern Mix by Jessica Levitt will teache you to confidently mix and match fabrics for a fresh, clean look.

A printed fabric is so eye-catching…and when it’s paired with the right solid, the result is brilliantly graphic. These contemporary projects show off the dynamic partnership of large-scale prints and vivid solids. Filled with fabulous ideas and information for how to integrate fabrics, this book is a must-have for your sewing library. Includes a chapter on quiltmaking basics.

Jessica Levitt has been sewing and quilting since the age of 12. Always thirsting for some new craft, she has taught herself countless quilting techniques as well as costuming, event design, and home decor. She is a designer for Windham Fabrics. Her degree in engineering from Duke University is now largely unused while she pursues fulfillment in more creative endeavors. Jessica lives and works in New Jersey with her husband and two children. She blogs at


For a chance to win a copy of Modern Mix, please leave a comment on this post by Monday, October 17th, 2011 midnight.  The winner will be announced on Wednesday, October 19th.  Although the giveaway is open to all, only with a U.S. address you can receive a print version of the book.  If you live outside of U.S. and win this giveaway, you will receive a digital copy of the book (oh just as GOOD!).

Quilted Mad Tea Party

This tea set is entirely hand sewn and just gorgeous! Better yet, you may not have to go shopping for supplies; you can make it from your extras. If you’re looking for a portable toy, this is the perfect item while you travel with kids this summer, or while out at the park, or the beach. You’ll find the tutorial and pattern at the Instructables.

Anna Maria Horner Quilt Auction

Anna Maria Horner, one of the most talented fabric designers in the world (her fabric is a household item in my family) is auctioning a quilt for the Queensland flood victims. The fabric is her own design, the pattern is her own design (Gathering Flowers Quilt), and so is the sewing. The bidding ends midnight today, so there is still a whole day left to go over to her blog and bid on it to help people in need. Thank you Anna Maria!
