Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers

No doubt you’ve seen this book around the last couple of weeks!  I submitted two blocks for consideration in Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers and both of them have been included.  Which also means that I have a copy to give away to one of you!

While designing I hoped to create dynamic blocks on their own, but also be able to visualize them as a quilt of one block.  So I thought I would share my sketches with you!

First is Pixel Peaks –

With this block, I was inspired by a rug I had seen at a friends house.  Super simple construction, it’s just a matter of cutting the pieces, but if you wanted to make a whole quilt, it could easily be strip pieced!  If I were to make quilt with just this block, I would arrange it like so –

Despite the pixel nature, it feels kinda organic to me.

And Stonehenge –

With this block, I was trying to get the movement of a circle, without piecing a circle!  Not opposed to circles, but I know they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.  For a quilt, I would alternate the color placement, to create more drama within a quilt top –

I really like the shapes created where the corners meet!  I think the best part of both of my blocks, is that they can be made to suite any decor.  If I were to make either of them right now, it would probably be purple.  I have bought two purple shirts and one cardigan in the last month!


In the book there really are 99 blocks!  Many are pieced like mine, however embroidery, and applique are also included.  It’s organized alphabetically, which always makes me happy, and there’s a great group of designers included!  The cover at the top, is a great representation of the inspiration to be found in this one book – so who would like a copy?

To enter:

Leave me a comment telling me your current favorite color.

I’ll select a winner on Wednesday, November 16th.

Good luck!

    My current favorite color is mint green. The fave is a color in whatever quilt I’m presently working on :^)

  2. Suzanne November 11, 2011 at 6:09 am

    More and more of my favorite people are part of this book! My favorite colors are purple and pink these days. Thanks for sharing your sketches too. It really helps to see the blocks replicated into a larger image.

  3. Mimi November 11, 2011 at 6:09 am

    You are a smart cookie…..CURRENT fav color is Purple, royal purple.

  4. Rhonda aka Quilter in The Gap November 11, 2011 at 6:09 am

    My current favorite color is turquoise. I didn’t realize it until recently but it seems to go with everything. Great blocks by the way!

  5. Michelle November 11, 2011 at 6:16 am

    My favorite color is turquoise!

  6. Laura November 11, 2011 at 6:17 am

    Red of course!

  7. KristyLou November 11, 2011 at 6:31 am

    I have more of a favorite color combination. Is that allowed? :) Blue and yellow. LOVE IT! Thanks.

  8. Johanna November 11, 2011 at 6:32 am

    I’d have to go with my old favorite. I love a nice bright shade of red violet. It always makes me feel happy!

  9. Marilyn November 11, 2011 at 6:33 am

    Love the shape of your stonehenge block.
    My favourite all time colour is pink, all shades of pink, and when it is put with green I am one happy camper.

  10. Debbie-Esch House Quilts November 11, 2011 at 6:37 am

    I would love to win this book! Every block I’ve seen out of it has been fantastic – including yours :)

    I have to put my favorite color in fabric terms – right now it is Kona Stone – I want to put it in everything.

  11. Michele November 11, 2011 at 6:38 am

    That book looks like one that I have to add to my wish list for Santa this year. He is always needing help finding me gifts that I really want. My favorite color has always been periwinkle.

  12. Kathy November 11, 2011 at 6:39 am

    I am loving jewel tones right now – including orange and teal. Have always loved purple though – case in point – my bridesmaids wore purple!

  13. laurel November 11, 2011 at 6:40 am

    hmm. probably orange – but not halloween orange, more like a fall harvest kind of orange.

  14. NONNIE November 11, 2011 at 6:50 am

    ABSOLUTELY adore the book. I have been playing in my EQ (just learning) with the blocks so that I can see which of the quilts I want to make. I have been having a blast with them and I have already started on a few baby quilts I need using the patterns.

    I did like your blocks, especially STONEHENGE and hope to make it into a laptop for my brother for his March birthday.

    FAVORITE COLOR : ANY color but I use blues mostly so that is probably my favorite…I tend to avoid brown like the plague.

  15. Jeannette November 11, 2011 at 6:57 am

    Hmmm… for a while it’s been sort of a kelley green… but not quite. With a touch of lime perhaps. Ha! That probably makes no sense. :)

  16. Sue November 11, 2011 at 7:00 am

    Congratulations on being published. Black is my all time favourite and I include it whenever possible…..even though it is not a colour. I love the way it makes colours pop, whether it is a print or solid. The deep orange of Indian textiles is my current favourite. Perhaps it is because it is almost summer here…..There is just something about it that draws me to it.

  17. Flo@butterfly Quilting November 11, 2011 at 7:02 am

    right now I am drawn to purple …although my usual favourite is yellow.

  18. Krista November 11, 2011 at 7:05 am

    I love the fact that you asked for “current” favourite colour. Mine seems to change on a regular basis, partly depending how much I’ve been working with it. Right now, deep royal blue would have to be my choice.

  19. sharon November 11, 2011 at 7:09 am

    my favorite color is now grey a shade closer to a blue grey.
    I recently had my bathroom and bedroom painted in 2 different shades of grey. we also got new bedroom furniture with a linen grey upholstered headboards. I also have a big stack of grey fabric to make into a quilt (hopefully before we consider the furniture to be vintage!)

  20. shout4joy November 11, 2011 at 7:10 am

    my favorite color is blue…a nice denimy blue :)

  21. anita maher-lewis November 11, 2011 at 7:11 am

    lime green

    great blocks

  22. Pat November 11, 2011 at 7:17 am

    My favorite color has always been purple, although I like to mix it with yellow. If you look in my closet you would know. I love your block designs. To win the book would be a great birthday present for me this. month. Thanks for sharing. Pat

  23. MC November 11, 2011 at 7:22 am

    Orange, it’s so much fun to work with.

  24. Deanna Brantly November 11, 2011 at 7:29 am

    Putple! And blue! And pink!

  25. Beth November 11, 2011 at 7:30 am

    Loving both of your blocks, Amy! How exciting to have both of them in the book, congrats! The 2nd one reminds me of the DP quilt I making right now so I would say you did a great job making it look like a circle but without having to deal with circles (those curved seams can be tricky!).

    My favorite color right now is gray! Thanks for the chance!

  26. Stephanie Zito November 11, 2011 at 7:30 am

    My favourite color would have to be aqua but being a mom of 4 girls, the youngest only 3 months old, I tend to use pink in everything!

    The book looks fabulous! Congrats on both of your blocks being published! Thanks for the chance to get my hands on a copy of this wonderful must-have book!

  27. DE´ BEM SUCEDIDA November 11, 2011 at 7:31 am

    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  29. Betty November 11, 2011 at 7:36 am

  30. Betsy in MA November 11, 2011 at 7:39 am

    Love both of your blocks! My favorite color is blue in every hue and tint and shade!

  31. Emily Breclaw November 11, 2011 at 7:39 am

  33. Cassie November 11, 2011 at 7:47 am

    That’s so funny, I was just looking at this book on amazon thinking about how much I’d like to have it! My current favorite color is purple….I think…or maybe green :)

  34. Tiffany November 11, 2011 at 7:49 am

    My all-time favorite color is verdigris–think sea glass, aquamarine and Tiffany blue all combined. =)

  35. connie November 11, 2011 at 7:57 am

    I love all colors but I have to say I think my favorite right now is sage green.
    This looks like a very fun book. Thanks and Congratulations!

    Green, always green, it goes with everything.

  38. Lynda November 11, 2011 at 8:06 am

    my favorite color is orange – any shade of orange – this has been my downfall my entire lifetime.

  39. Joy November 11, 2011 at 8:06 am

    My favorite color is now, always has been, and probably always will be purple. Rich, dark, royal purple. I’m planning a quilt for myself after I finish this batch of gifts, and it will be a tumbler quilt of various purple batiks with a few scattered tumblers of my prized border collie print fabric.

  40. meagan November 11, 2011 at 8:08 am

    I am also highly partial to purple at the moment :-) But my all-time favorite color is blue-gray. Crayola stopped making it when I was a kid, but I’ve seen it in house paint under pseudonyms like “flannel” and “Gettysburg.” Thanks for the chance to win!!

  41. Rachel November 11, 2011 at 8:22 am

    Awesome blocks…and I love the visuals of how you would do a quilt with them…really opens up my ability to “see” LOL…Thanks for the opportunity and congrats!!

  46. Michelle @ If Toys Could Talk November 11, 2011 at 8:49 am

    My favorite color right now is red. I love how cheerful red quilts look.

  47. Hallie November 11, 2011 at 8:51 am

    This book looks fantastic! I’m seeing alot of inspiration coming my way with this book. I’m loving the color gray: gray and pink, gray and turquoise, gray and green, gray is the new neutral for me….

    Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful book!

  48. Jocelyn November 11, 2011 at 8:54 am

  52. Em November 11, 2011 at 9:18 am


    What program do you use to make one block into a quilt?

  53. liz November 11, 2011 at 9:19 am


    Though I have not made a purple quilt yet… still saving up some purples with plenty of greens to go along.

  54. Donna November 11, 2011 at 9:22 am

    It’s a combo for me: robins egg blue with brown. Love it. Love, love, love it.

    Congratulations on being included in this book–it looks fantastic!

  68. […] On other nights I have been playing with my EQ, which brings me to the topic of today’s blog. I have been playing with Amy Ellis’ Stonehenge –183 block for several nights. She has just blogged about …… […]

  69. Elisabeth November 11, 2011 at 10:20 am

    My favourite colour used to be blue until I fell very ill when it changed to green. I still love blue, though, closely followed by grey.

  70. Melissa November 11, 2011 at 10:30 am

    I think grey. It has so much versatility. Thanks so much!

  71. Kristina pickens November 11, 2011 at 10:43 am

    I love terra cotta orange…and poison green. But…I add black to many a quilt! I love the top design…pixel peaks.

  72. Jennie November 11, 2011 at 11:02 am

    I love all colours but at the moment it has to be green. With white. It’s just so fresh and clean and if I want it spring-like I add in some pink!

  73. Deb November 11, 2011 at 11:26 am

    My fav color is purple in all its shades. Congrats on your blocks being published.

  74. Jacque November 11, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Currently I am really liking orange – go figure! Up to now, I’ve been a blue and teal kinda girl! Would love to win this, and I really like that second block that you showed!

  75. Miki November 11, 2011 at 11:39 am

    My favorite color these days seems to be red. Not a cool red, but a hot red with orange overtones. Yummy.

  76. quilterbell November 11, 2011 at 11:49 am

    My favourite colour of all time is red and white. And lately I love the combination red and pink. Thank you for the giveaway, have a great weekend.

  77. Jo Anne November 11, 2011 at 11:59 am

    That would be deep purple.

  78. Shirley Marie November 11, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    I seem to change color likes, but tend to always return to greens as favorite most of the time. Am really getting into the modern approach in my block choices over the more traditonal ones I used to always choose.

  79. Lindsay November 11, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    Hmmm… current favorite colors has to be gray! It pairs so well with brights.

  80. Domenica November 11, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    Il mio colore preferito è il blu, in tutte le sue sfumature chiare o scure, forse perchè vivo vicino a un lago dai colori stupendi tutti i giorni con bello o cattivo tempo.

  81. Jodi November 11, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    I really love bright yellow . Your blocks are really great! Both of these blocks are on my to-do list.

    Thanks for the giveaway and a chance to win this great book.


  82. Tsigeyusv November 11, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I’ve always been partial to blue, but I’ve been trying to expand my likes lately. The Fall/Autumn palate has been piquing my interest lately.

  83. Mary Jo November 11, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I really like your blocks.The book looks great. Maybe because it is Fall my favorite color is Mustard. I love it with a whole lot of other colors.Thanks

  84. CitricSugar November 11, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Purple, but I can see myself slipping into green.

  96. Chancy November 11, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    I really love the top block and the quilt you designed with it. Might have to do a straight up copy. My fave color is green and all by big projects lately seem to be using lots of it.

  97. CaroleM November 11, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    My favourite colour right now is plum purple. I’m finding myself very drawn to it.

  98. Sandy November 11, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Before I started quilting almost 25 years ago, my stated favorite color was blue. Over the years of playing with fabric I began to like more and more colors. Now I absolutely love yellow! I painted my bedroom walls yellow—not cream, not pale—but real yellow! It makes me smile every day!

  99. Terry Patterson November 11, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    Like both blocks. I can just see pixile peaks in a south west atmosphere. Nice and congratulations on being included in the book.

  100. Patricia Price November 11, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    Thanks for this opportunity…my favorite color is red.

  110. MarciaW November 11, 2011 at 9:17 pm

  111. Lynn November 11, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    For a while now my favorite color has been lime green. I still like it, but my current favorite color is slate gray. Boring I know, but what ‘ya gonna do? I love it and it goes so well with so many things, such as lime green. :)

  112. Jeanell November 11, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    Lavender Blue is my current favorite color.

  113. Jill November 11, 2011 at 10:02 pm

  114. Sue Bone November 11, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Every quilt looks better for a dash of red. For clothes – purple.

  115. Barb Colvin November 11, 2011 at 11:32 pm

    Currently my favorite color is orange–all shades of it call to me! Must be autumn :)

  116. Lorraine November 11, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    Every where I turn I am seeing burnt orange. I want it so bad, yet orange has never been a favorite. Things change.

  117. Tove Leggett November 12, 2011 at 12:31 am

    Stonhendge is a cool block, I could see myself sewing the pixel peaks for something different! Great blocks. as for color i am funny I have favorites for different things in clothing is a salmon/ rusty color, as of late that has moving into my quilting this year but more our a accident the then propose. i was sewign up older fabric that I had purchased in the past. So i must have been attracted to the salmon/rust color for a while and now realized it! They are so nice and warm usually.

  118. Lori November 12, 2011 at 4:55 am

    I really like both of those blocks :) I especially like Stonehenge with the alternating colors…nice! Let’s see, favorite current color, I think I’ll go with RED right now. Congrats on the inclusion of your blocks…love ’em!

  120. Kerstin November 12, 2011 at 5:01 am

    I have so many favorites, but if I had to pick one, I’d would be purple.

  122. kathy h November 12, 2011 at 6:20 am

  123. Amy in SC November 12, 2011 at 9:21 am

    I’m new to quilting but just LOVE the look of “Pixel Peaks” – it looks so inviting and I cannot wait to see it made up!

    My favorite colour is PINK!

    It has so many shades and tones and looks great in so many types of fabric patterns. It describes me.

  146. Elle November 13, 2011 at 7:32 am

    I am still in my purple obsession, though I’ve been making so many quilts for others in their favorite color schemes that you’d never know it! I really like the look of this book – it’s on my holiday wish list, but how exciting would it be to win one early! I’d have to rename you “Santa Amy” in my mind! :)

  147. Gwen Windham November 13, 2011 at 10:32 am

    My favorite color right now would probably be red– it’s SO vibrant and exciting! But, ask me again in a month or two and it’ll probably change… ;-) thanks for the giveaway!! FUN! :-)
