Lines by Design Quilts is by my friend Debbie Grifka of Esch House Quilts – I always love seeing Debbie and her new patterns at Market, and was so excited when she revealed to me that she was in the process of writing this beautiful book.

Included in the book are 17 original and stunning projects! Debbie organized the book by shape and has included projects large and small, some are simple and others are more complex – there’s something for everyone, and the typeface is complementary to the style of quilts too!

I didn’t get very far in looking through the book, before I was smitten – Slats is a collection of pillow patterns.

I told Debbie that I couldn’t wait to make all four, but for today, I’ve just made my favorite.

Epicenter – I love the way your eye keeps moving around this quilt, and the gradient tones of blue.

Road Work – I just love the big circles and bright colors in this quilt. Debbie walks you through appliqué for this project, in case you aren’t ready for curves yet!
