ETA: Our winner is Lynda! Thanks to everyone that stopped on the tour!
Hi there! I’m excited to share a new book with all of you today (and give an ebook away too!) My friend Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting Melissa authored Irish Chain Quilts: Contemporary Twists on a Classic Design – and it’s fantastic! 15 approachable and fresh quilt patterns are included in the book, for every style of quilter, and Melissa walks you through each and every step of the process.
The book is written in four sections, Twist on Tradition, Modern Patchwork, Improvisational Piecing and Appliquéd Chains. Melissa gives a brief introduction to each group of quilts, and is her usual encouraging self throughout the book. If you don’t know Melissa yet, stop by her blog and get to know her!
As part of this blog hop, each of us made a block for a charity quilt that Melissa will be donating to Primary Children’s Hospital. I made a North Star block in a few Chic Neutral fabrics.
This block is nice on it’s own, but I love it in the quilt – so striking!
