Quilt Remix Blog Tour

Emily Cier is a pattern designer and author of a new book, Quilt Remix: Spin Traditional Favorites into Ten Fresh Projects.

It is a very fresh take on some traditional quilt patterns and projects, "deconstructed" in the "Modern Quilting" mode.

And this!

I was so excited when I saw her work that she asked me to join her blog tour to get the word out, which is underway now!

Here's the schedule:

January 11 (Tuesday) — Kathy Mack – pinkchalkstudio.com
January 12 (Wednesday) — Julie Herman – jaybirdquilts.com
January 13 (Thursday) — Allie Aller – alliesinstitches.blogspot.com
January 14 (Friday) — Rachel Griffith – psiquilt.com
January 15 (Saturday) — Heather Bostic – alamodefabric.blogspot.com
January 16 (Sunday) — Connecting Threads – connectingthreads.com
January 17 (Monday) — Deborah Moebes – whipstitchfabrics.com/blog
January 18 (Tuesday) — Cherri House — Cherryhousequilts.com
January 19 (Wednesday) — Kim Kight – trueup.net

C&T is generously giving away a copy of Emily's book Quilt Remix at every stop, so be sure visit everyone on the tour.

In tomorrow's post, you'll hear my take on it...and why I think this book is an important tool for "handing down" the love of quilting to the next generation. By leaving a comment on the post, you will be eligible to win your own free copy of Emily's book here.

And if you haven't visited some of the other blogs on the tour before, do so...there's some great work out there!

See you tomorrow...
