Modern, but basic: easy quilts to try (+ fabric giveaway!)

Quilts from Modern BasicsCurious what it’s like to create a “modern” quilt? Amy Ellis will soon release her fourth book, and each one makes dipping your toe in the modern-quilting pool easy and fun. Once you stitch a quilt with Amy, you’ll want to dive in head first to start another.

Amy’s gift? Giving classic foundations a modern twist. Because one style relies on the other, you can achieve a fresh look while preserving elements that make traditional quilts so cozy and welcoming.

Amy’s quilts have these three traits in common:

  1. Designs typically use just one block pattern.
  2. Cutting and sewing is at its simplest (Amy has a knack for streamlining).
  3. It’s all about choosing fabrics you love.

Speaking of fabric…


FABRIC GIVEAWAY ALERT! Our friends at Moda have generously donated a gorgeous bundle of 28 fat quarters from Amy’s new “Modern Neutrals” fabric line to give to you! Learn how you can win it—plus your choice of one of Amy’s eBooks—at the bottom of this post.

“I’ve dipped my toe and started to swim. I have been trying to use patterns that are just one block and added my own twist.

Thanks for keeping our minds churning.”

  • So far, I think I’m a quilter who has only dipped a toe in modern quilting. I have to say I so admire the modern quilts along with the fabulous fabrics in the modern quilt. I have been so wanting Amy’s new fabric, so thanks for the chance to win!

    —Debbie Leschisin on October 21, 2014
  • I would say I’ve "taken a swim." I belong to Front Range Modern Quilt Guild in Colorado, so I’ve made a few modern quilts. I love the color choices in Amy’s books!

    Aunt Marti on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe…..but I absolutely love the look of modern quilts. Also, the straight line quilting is beautiful, as well.

    —Connie on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe.

    —DebrafromMD on October 21, 2014
  • I’m a toe dipper, I did a more modern quilt from a kit. After some measurement adjustments it went together pretty well. Would love the chance to work with the Moda fabrics.

    —Wendy Mosher on October 21, 2014
  • Modern quilting is a challenging journey of design. I love experimenting with the basic principles of design to come up with fresh new interpretations of traditional quilting blocks.

    —Chriss on October 21, 2014
  • I really enjoyed trying to figure out how the one block was used in "Modern Maze" quilt. She flipped the block and turned it to create her pattern, but what a beautiful quilt it turned out to be.

    —Angela Little on October 21, 2014
  • I started with placemats, and last year made a twin size modern quilt. I love the look and enjoy the contrast of bright colored fabrics with a neutral background.

    —Linda on October 21, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper in the making of modern quilts. I love the use of color and design. I think I need to wade a little into modern quilting.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on October 21, 2014
  • Only dipped a toe so far but I’m looking forward to doing much more!

    —Gail on October 21, 2014
  • I have only ‘looked from afar’. I like the look, but haven’t made the move from ‘traditional’ yet. I like the clean lines.

    —Judy D on October 21, 2014
  • …. love the look of her quilts and will certainly give it a go … I’d really love the book – but that bundle of fabric would bring me lots of joy :} sweet ..

    —Sandra on October 21, 2014
  • I’m dipping my toes…I love the look but I have 30 years of stash that doesn’t necessarily lend itself to a modern look! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Beth Strand on October 21, 2014
  • My experience with modern quilting is frustrating

    —Hilda Krebs on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe, if admiring and planning count 🙂

    —Jessica F on October 21, 2014
  • In the deep end, for modern quilting. The simple designs make the fabrics sparkle!

    —Mimi Braniff on October 21, 2014
  • I would say that I have dipped a toe. I love the look but just have not taken the dive yet.

    —Margaret Schindler on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe!

    —Jackie on October 21, 2014
  • I don’t own the pool but I’m always swimming! I love modern! I love how traditional style is getting a face-lift through modern to keep it interesting and attracting more artists!

    Maer Soukaros on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t even dipped a toe yet, but I’m getting awfully close to the water’s edge!!! I’m dying to dive in. The materials and Amy’s patterns are sure inspiring.

    —krafty kc on October 21, 2014
  • i made a "Tetris" quilt for my son-in-law, using three shades of each solid color to create a 3D effect. It was beautiful and was featured on the official Tetris Facebook page where it got nearly a thousand likes.

    —Joana on October 21, 2014
  • I would say I am swimming along – I tend to gravitate to the quick and easy patterns and more modern fabrics, and straight line quilting is so easy for me to do on my tabletop machine… but I make whatever I like.

    —regina on October 21, 2014
  • I would say I have taken a swim with modern quilts. I have a couple more planned but I need to find the time! There are always more projects to work on and not enough time! I just bought a charm pack of Amy’s Modern Neutrals at a quilt show this past weekend and am anxious to use it. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Paula W. on October 21, 2014
  • I love the look, and the idea of larger blocks by comparison to some of the "antique" patterns makes it much more appealing for the pressed-for-time sewer.

    —Carol on October 21, 2014
  • I admire but I haven’t plunged!

    Nann on October 21, 2014
  • I consider myself a quilter that likes traditional patterns with a modern twist. I’m attracted to contemporary colors and fabric designs. So, I guess I’ve "dipped my toe" in.

    —Kris Taylor on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t done any…yet…but I saw a demonstration at my quilt guild last week and am anxious to start one.

    —Lynda Nunez on October 21, 2014
  • I recently made a quilt using a design idea called String of Pearls which has square frames suspended from a ribbon. It was interesting and I learned the value of a design wall to keep all the blocks in order. Plan to use this design again.

    —Judy Young on October 21, 2014
  • I have only gone as far as looking when it comes to Modern quilts.

    —Linda on October 21, 2014
  • I just started quilting in May and am loving every minute of it. I joined the local Modern Quilt Guild and I’m learning just what modern quilting is all about. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m getting great info and tips and will be ready to begin my first "modern quilt" very soon. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    —Toni Leli on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped! I know practice makes ‘better’ so I continue to strive, I just keep for myself the ones I quilt!

    —Susan Wilkerson on October 21, 2014
  • I love Amy’s Modern Neutrals and would love to use the fat quarters in the give away to make a quilt or table runner from her newest book, Think Big!

    —Pam on October 21, 2014
  • I’m enjoying the swim – free style. The look, awesome colors, angles and everything about modern has got me swimming year round!

    —Andee McKenica on October 21, 2014
  • Haven’t even visited the lake!! Saw Jacqui Gering recently and she inspired me to dip in a toe!!

    —Julie on October 21, 2014
  • Looking forward to trying this!

    —Barbara on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve "dipped a toe" and found it to be appealing enough to "take the plunge."

    —Alice on October 21, 2014
  • I love modern quilting. I own the pool. My favorite is to quilt the top once it’s pieced.

    —Cindy on October 21, 2014
  • I am relatively new to quilting, so I am not sure if I have made a modern quilt yet. Thanks!

    —Delaine on October 21, 2014
  • I would say I have dipped a toe in making modern quilts but usually I just jump in LOL sometimes over my head! Love the Modern Quilts. They help to get the new crowd going.. not your Grandmother’s Quilt but makes people new to sewing and quilting have confidence to learn.

    —Dorothy on October 21, 2014
  • "Own the pool". I love modern simple quilting!

    —floreine on October 21, 2014
  • Barely dipped a toe- but I love the modern and the blocks look relatively simple.

    —Daveenya Stone on October 21, 2014
  • I think I have just begun to swim. I have completed several quilts, bought some books and belong to a modern quilt group. I particularly love the new fabrics. I have often looked at Amy’s book Modern Neutrals. It is definitely on my wish list. Thanks for the chance.

    —Anne Burden on October 21, 2014
  • I have yet to dip my toes into modern quilts but I am thinking about making a baby quilt . That will be a great way to start to see if I like them.

    —Shirley Harrison on October 21, 2014
  • I’m sitting poolside and cheering on the modern quilters in the pool! In my experience so far they are mostly younger women with very busy lives and their streamlined methods suit them. Any new faces in the quilting world are a blessing. Traditional or modern, hand or machine, let’s welcome all of it! We all love to sew and quilt!

    —Bette Ingoglia on October 21, 2014
  • I am only a toe dipper as well. Simple blocks with light backgrounds are my favorite. I recently made my first modern quilt and I am so pleased. It is the first of many. I don’t think I will ever go back to making traditional quilts. I look forward to Amy’s new Think Big book.

    —Suzi on October 21, 2014
  • Have only dipped a toe, but am very keen to try one of these wonderful Modern Quilts…..
    So have joined the Modern Quilt group, which is part of the Quilters guild in the UK, but also am hoping to try some patterns from your site.

    SueB

    —Sue Brown on October 21, 2014
  • Just dipped a toe I think but then my interests are quite wide and varied so I try lots of things!

    —Rebecca on October 21, 2014
  • Taken a swim for sure! I still admire traditional quilts but I am now a modern girl. Donated the bulk of my traditional fabric to my friend who makes charity. My fabric stash has changed drastically and Amy’s new line would feel right at home in my studio and in my quilts.

    —Jackie Shulsky on October 21, 2014
  • Have dipped my toes and tested the waters but am eager to swim. What a gorgeous bundle of fabric to get someone in the pool!

    —Kathren Arnette on October 21, 2014
  • I have only "dipped a toe" since most of the patterns are a little bold for my taste, but after seeing Amy’s patterns and fabrics I’d be willing to try for the swim.

    —Pat Brich on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe but give me time I’ll own the pool

    Debra on October 21, 2014
  • I’m still standing on the side of the pool when it comes to modern quilts; I admire their simplicity, impact, and colors, but haven’t tried one yet. This book could definitely get me to jump in.

    —Deborah on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped one foot? Even though I lean more towards traditional quilts, these quilts are very striking.

    —Judy P on October 21, 2014
  • I’m still a new enough quilter that I feel I’m in up to my ankles on modern quilting. Amy’s books look like fun and, oh, that fabric! Lovely giveaway!

    Jane @ Handiworking on October 21, 2014
  • I have a toe in the water ready to go. All my fabric and pattern buying for THE STASH has been modern for the past year. I’m looking forward to taking a swim.

    —Betty on October 21, 2014
  • Definitely dipping a toe! But what I really like about Amy’s designs is the symmetry with a twist!

    —Judy Paiva on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe, however, I have a friend whose sister became an artist as therapy a few months before she passed of brain cancer. She exposed me to modern artistry, which inspires a desire to make a quilt for my friend. The neutral colors are beautiful. like those found in nature. Thank you for the opportunity to win and a chance to spread the love.

    —Shirley Graff on October 21, 2014
  • I have only dipped my toes in but looking at these quilts makes me want to own the pool! Would love to make any of these!

    —Donna K on October 21, 2014
  • Just thinking about dipping a toe…unfortunately, I think I need to use up much of my stash…but I do have a selection of modern prints. I like the modern, cleaner look much more these days, and the single or two block look…and I like the free style quilting look even more! If only I were retired………..

    —Leslie Haggstrom on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve recently joined a Modern Bee group and look forward to trying several modern designs!

    —Cindy Pilkington on October 21, 2014
  • I’m working on my 4th quilt and 2 of them have been more modern styles so I guess I’ve taken a swim. 🙂

    —Bunny Wilson on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe

    —Sonja mclane on October 21, 2014
  • I am a newbie to quilting and still haven’t got off the dock yet, but hopefully will be taking a plunge in the not too distant future

    —Lynnette Lamance on October 21, 2014
  • have dipped a toe, but love what I have done and look forward to doing more

    —sharon gates on October 21, 2014
  • I have done a few of these and love them! It’s a big change since I used to only do primitive style quilts. I’m finding I like the brighter fabrics with a good contrast.

    —Kim Lundstrom on October 21, 2014
  • So far I have only dipped a toe. I tend to do more traditional quilting, but I love the modern quilts. They always seem so fresh with the clean lines. I love the colorways in the three featured quilts.

    —Barbara on October 21, 2014
  • I’m such a new quilter that I think I’m a modern quilter simply by default! Seriously, though, I call my style "modern traditional." I like the clean lines of modern quilting, especially simple, straight line quilting, but I also like some of the traditional blocks and settings.

    —Snow on October 21, 2014
  • In modern quilting I would say I dipped a toe. I have only been quilting about 8 years and have only begun modern in the last year or so.
    Vivian October 21, 2014

    —Vivian Bernsen on October 21, 2014
  • I have purchased some very modern fabric to make a modern quilt for my Granddaughter. I have not begun it yet. It will be my winter project this year. I am very excited about trying it.

    —Verna Kingston on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toe and am starting to wade deeper!

    Jenny Mahieu on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t dipped my toe yet, I’m more of a traditionalist, but I love the look of these quilts and the examples have definitely given me ideas for a modern quilt. I’m eager to get started!

    —CJ Hines on October 21, 2014
  • I dipped a toe but look forward to dipping in furyher

    —Sonja mclane on October 21, 2014
  • I am drawn to modern quilts, have bought some fabrics, but have not yet started to make one.

    —Deborah K. on October 21, 2014
  • Oh, how I love modern quilts! I have dipped a toe, making a few mini quilts in modern designs. I loved the outcome and want to make more, only bigger scale! I’d love to win.

    —Kathy E. on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe, but I’m moving more toward the modern quilts.

    —Nancy on October 21, 2014
  • I have barely dipped a toe in Modern quilting, but really learning to love it. So fresh! I’m just getting back in to quilting heavily after a slight hiatus. I’m also loving the new modern fabrics and this bundle you get me a good start down that route. Love these.

    —Kimberly P on October 21, 2014
  • I’m willing to dip a toe in the water and this looks like a good way to begin. I like the look of many of the modern quilts. This appears to be the time to get my feet wet!

    —Gloria on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a swim and continue to learn new methods and techniques, almost sure I will never own the pool as there is always more water to tread into. Love the modern maze block.

    —Sally on October 21, 2014
  • I would have to say I have taken a swim. I love the quilts and making them, they just don’t fit into my decor! (Perhaps I need to change that!)

    Bari on October 21, 2014
  • I am ready to jump off the diving board and start Christmas quilting.

    —Zanna on October 21, 2014
  • I’d say I’ve had a dip in the shallow end of the pool. I’ve made a few small pieces with a modern dynamic but as of yet not taken the plunge into the deep end!!

    —Sandra on October 21, 2014
  • So far I have taken a swim in the modern quilting pool. I’ve collected lots of books and pattern, supplemented by lots of fabric, and have completed 4 lap quilts and have two more large size quilts cut and ready for the design board. I love how the modern quilting approach can really showcase special fabrics and quilting

    —Lynn Miller on October 21, 2014
  • I love modern quilts! I’ve "taken a swim" as the majority of my quilts are of the modern fabrics and patterns. Love Amys book. Will definitely get! Excited for the chance to win fabrics also!!!!

    —Janie J on October 21, 2014
  • Guess I have "taken a swim", making several modern quilts and enjoy the clean lines and graphic quilting. Have also enjoyed taking classes from some of the new modern quilters.

    —Mary on October 21, 2014
  • I jumped into "Modern" with both feet and most days I feel like I can’t swim. I have always thought the fabric should be the star of the quilt and as a beginner I did not like cutting my beautiful fabric into little pieces. With the popularity of Modern quilting I feel like i may get my swimming badge. Now my fabrics sing out with no distractions.

    —Joanne Pelletier on October 21, 2014
  • I love modern quilting, I learn everything by reading books and internet tutorials. I have come to love the simplicity and details in modern quilting. I love and enjoy traditional but I would have to say I own the pool when it comes to where my modern projects and gifts vs my traditional projects.

    —Latanya Collier on October 21, 2014
  • Ready, set and GO. just in time for Christmas.

    —Zanna on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe, I liked the look of some of the quilts I’ve seen.

    —Quilting Tangent on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t even dipped a toe yet. I’m standing on the high dive waiting for the wind to stop blowing so I can do a one and a half gainer into the pool!(Hardly anything in my stash is appropriate for a contemporary quilt, but I will start working on that.)

    —Linda Pyke on October 21, 2014
  • Oh I’ve gone swimming. A traditionalist at heart though, I find modern refreshing, imaginative, clean, and a great way to use color.

    —Lynn in Madison on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve waded in the pool a bit…modern quilting is so eye-catching!

    Linda F. on October 21, 2014
  • In my head, I’ve created many modern quilts. However, at my machine, two different quilts have come to life. I love the freedom of the designs and open spaces for creative quilting.

    —Sharon Laughlin on October 21, 2014
  • We have more than dipped our toes. My husband now quilts too. He has even purchased his own sewing machine and he loves modern. Sew (so) we often do a project together and they always have a modern twist. I love it!

    —Janey on October 21, 2014
  • I just completed my first modern quilt. It was the second quilt I quilted on my Innova 18″ quilting machine. It is mostly free-motion quilting and turned out better than I could have imagined. I am getting geared up to make a modern quilt for each of my three granddaughters. It will be such fun! So I guess you could say I’m taking a swim.

    —Lana Frazier on October 21, 2014
  • I guess ‘toe dipping’ would be the correct response for me. At 78 I’ve taken an interest in going over to the Modern Side, because some of my grandchildren tend to lean that way and I want to make gifts that they will use and enjoy. I’ve purchased a couple of books and decided I really like what I am seeing, but have only used solids thus far. This giveaway opportunity comes at the perfect time, so I will keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

    —Sylvia on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe. Love the look – want to do more. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Charlotte on October 21, 2014
  • I am definitely just at the toe dipping stage although I may just be learning to float. Long way to go before I can actually swim. Still, I love being able to give my great nieces quilts.

    —Jacqueline Gould on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a swim for sure!

    —Donna on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve taken my socks and shoes off, put my feet in the water and wiggled my toes. I really like modern quilts but haven’t fully jumped in and headed for the deep end.

    —Ann Denny on October 21, 2014
  • I think that I probably own the pool. I have the same common traits as Amy – have used them for all my quilts:

    1.Designs typically use just one block pattern.
    2.Cutting and sewing is at its simplest
    3.It’s all about choosing fabrics you love.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win such a beautiful fabric line.

    —Shirley on October 21, 2014
  • I like the look of many of the modern quilts but haven’t actually made one yet. So I guess I’ve only dipped a toe…into the movement.

    —Phyllis M on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only "dipped a toe" into modern quilting. We are all individuals with different tastes and so it is with quilting. Each style is to be admired and enjoyed!

    —Kaye M. on October 21, 2014
  • I wouldn’t say that I own the pool but I prefer modern quilting because you get to step outside of the box. I would say I’ve "taken a swim" and I LOVE the water! I’m a lover of art quilts and quilts that tell a story.

    Annette J. on October 21, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper with modern quilts but I live the simplicity and beauty of the block used in Modern Maze. (The fabric choice is amazing, too)

    —Lisa W. on October 21, 2014
  • I would take a swim love the modern look with the correct fabric they would be top rate!!!send me my bundle and I WILL CREATE AND SWIM TO THE VERY END.

    lynne mulcahey on October 21, 2014
  • Yes, dip in the pool is me. I love simple traditional but always like to try something new as change is good ! Neutrals are so essential to all quilting.

    —Susan Stone on October 21, 2014
  • Being able to use just one block pattern then cutting and sewing at its simplest would be great!!!

    Doris Cardno on October 21, 2014
  • I’m all in for modern quilting. I love the calm simplicity that it brings to me. I’ve definitely been "owning it".

    —Hallie on October 21, 2014
  • I’m going to say I have taken a swim. I have done 2 so far, and since I am newish to quilting I should had that it felt more like I was drowning at first. LOL Thanks for this awesome giveaway! 🙂

    —Kathy Gates on October 21, 2014
  • I would say I don’t own the pool yet, but I’m swimming in the deep end. Modern quilting is my new passion. I still do some traditional quilting to use up my stash, but all my fabric, book and magazine selections are modern now. I love the freedom that modern quilting brings to the game.

    —Pam B on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe. I’m looking forward to taking a swim. I love Modern quilts.

    —Mary on October 21, 2014
  • To me is definitely dip a toe. I love traditional quilts, but after looking at Modern Basics I am willing to give it a try!

    —Doris on October 21, 2014
  • Love modern quilting! Especially twists on more traditional blocks.

    —Ellen Witko on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve taken a swim, I love modern quilting

    love them all

    —Jane on October 21, 2014
  • i ‘ve only dipped a toe .. literally ! i am currently choosing the fabrics for my second quilt! so loving it!

    —valeL on October 21, 2014
  • I guess I’ve dipped my toe, but I really love the look of modern quilting. I especially love that "Modern Maze" quilt! I love lots of color in my quilts. Thanks so much for the chance to win this beautiful fabric! 🙂

  • I have thus far just dipped a toe. I love the simplicity and the color choices that Amy uses. I would love the opportunity to jumpin fully. Thanks for the chance.

    —Debbie branch on October 21, 2014
  • Have definitely taken a swim. Love the look of modern quilts. I am enjoying exploring different colour combinations.

    —Janine Hoey on October 21, 2014
  • I will say I’m swimming, but I’m swimming in the baby pool (lol.) I really like the idea of one block quilts in today’s fresh, new fabric lines. Amy is one of my very favorite modern quilters because she designs patterns around one block and because her quilts give you a "quilty" feeling, traditional but with a cool twist.

    Julie Quigley on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve not even gotten close to the edge of the pool!!!! I do like the looks of some of the quilts and I like Amy’s fabrics.

    —Gwynette in NW Arkansas on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve played with some blocks and have some ideas of what I would like to make, but I’ve yet to make the plunge.

    —Karen A on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve done a couple of modern quilts as mystery quilts, but haven’t ‘swum’ in them yet.

    Judy Garling on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve just recently started quilting and purchased Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley and am addicted. I would LOVE the neutral fat quarters to add to my small collection of beautiful fabrics. That being said, I can say I’ve "dipped a toe" and can’t wait to jump in fully.

  • I have dipped a toe, but really want to dive in and swim. My first toe-dipping was a zigzag lap quilt in gray and yellow on white. My daughter’s friend found a quilt in a ready-made store, took a picture, and asked if I could/would make a quilt like it for her. I designed it on EQ7, and would like to make many more with different color combinations. My second toe-dipping also came my way from my daughter’s work place. I made a baby quilt out of three shades of blue, with white background. I appliqued a single sail boat (nursery theme) on blue "water", then added four borders, blue and white. Both of my modern quilts were limited to solid colors and clean lines. I am currently making a challenge quilt with Peppered Cottons by Pepper Cory. These are very bold solid colors, so staying within the challenge guidelines, I am creating similar blocks that work well together, and hopefully come up with a modern looking wall hanging. I love the trend to modern; it gives quilting a venue for those who shy away from quilts, thinking that traditional is the only way quilts are made!

  • I’m not quite a full fledged swimmer but close. I’m presently working on two modern quilts for Christmas. I’ve added some funky embroidery to one of them(free form t-shirt quilt).
    Modern quilt designs have fun spaces to add embroidery. I love putting fun colors together to produce a modern quilt that makes the viewer see each color and block,then suddenly "wow" look at the whole quilt. The designs in Amy’s books have that WOW factor. It would be a lot of fun to make them and be inspired by them and her new fabric.

  • "Dipped a Toe"..hoping to take a plunge. Love the simple dramatic patterns of modern.

    —Debra Mack on October 21, 2014
  • one on the go. plenty of lurking tho. i love the modern quilts i have seen online. hope to make an hst quilt in shades of blue and grey.

    —Shannon O on October 21, 2014
  • Just about to stick in a toe with a variation on a shadow quilt for my daughter, simple clean lines. I love it.

    —Enid Chapman on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken the plunge, head first, with my feet and toes flapping and wiggling respectively, my eyes lite up and a smile on my face. I am almost in my seventh decade and did not discover this fantastic craft until this year. I have made several quilts and table runners…I am one very happy quilter who is floating on air, hmmm..maybe water. I love books and love different fabrics…I belong to a modern quilt club in Canada. I have so much to learn….sigh.

    —Carolyn on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t even "dipped a toe" yet because I have been more of a traditional quilter that I just haven’t "ventured" into it. I see many patterns in those books that intregue me to break my traditionalism and "take a dip".

    —Kaye Morgan on October 21, 2014
  • A bit of a young swimmer but always on the hunt for an great inspiration. These are lovely! Quilting can be cool!

    —Adria on October 21, 2014
  • Taken a swim, thinking about buying the pool. I have Amy’s Modern Neutrals book and love her projects! She made me rethink ‘neutrals’. I really love the simplicity of modern quilts, yet many are very complex. And I love the fabrics! Actually, I love fabric in general….

    —Alisa H on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve done a couple of modern quilts, mostly for the young people in the family. Stepping outside one’s comfort zone is good for the creative muse!

    Gail G on October 21, 2014
  • My dip into the moderns involves the newer innovative cutting and sewing. I still love the old blocks, some of the "modern" seem too sterile to me, and my eye doesn’t follow the patterns that are too cluttered. I do like the maze quilts, the celtic geometric patterns and the variations on log cabin. I like the modern fabrics up to the point where they try to emulate the 60’s psychedelic stuff, yuck. I hated it in high school and I hate it now! Oh well, everyone to their own taste, said the old lady as she kissed the cow… (old saying courtesy my late mother)

    —Sharon Schipper on October 21, 2014
  • I think I would be considered "afraid of the water". I am just learning to quilt and have not even dipped a toe, yet. I would love to try!

    —Pamela on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve just dipped a toe in the pool but I’m taking lessoning. Love the fabric line and would love to win it.

    —Teresa on October 21, 2014
  • I have only ‘dipped a toe’ but would love to take the plunge with one of Amy’s great books.

    —Diane H on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve taken a swim. I guess I’m a bit of a renegade because I just can’t follow the rules 🙂 even when cooking I always have to change the recipe a bit to make it my own.

    —Shan Kerber on October 21, 2014
  • I guess I am wading in the shallow end?! Love modern designs, and fresh modern fabric…and oldies with a twist! Thank you for a super giveaway!

    SarahZ on October 21, 2014
  • Dipping my toe in is about as far as I have gotten.

    elr on October 21, 2014
  • Haven’t done much modern quilting, but am liking some of the patterns and the fabrics. The simple quilting is also lovely.

    —Judy on October 21, 2014
  • They’re growing on me! I’m finding many modern patterns are great ways to use up large amounts of my stash. Especially when I’m making quilts for teenage foster kids.

    —Nancy on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t even got my toes wet yet. I love the modern quilts and look forward to trying one soon.

    —Shawna on October 21, 2014
  • Just getting started, love the fabric and would love the book, the cover quilt is right up my alley. Fingers crossed!!

    —Beth Andrepont on October 21, 2014
  • I am so excited for Amy’s new book!!! She is such a fabulous designer!! And I swim in the modern pool 😉

    Melissa Corry on October 21, 2014
  • I have been quilting for about 1 1/2 years and I have made 4 modern quilts. I love the look of modern quilts on beds.

    —Melba on October 21, 2014
  • My quilting style has evolved rather quickly in the past few years – from everything have to "match" to completely scrappy and / or modern – and I’m loving it! I guess that means that I’ve "taken a swim"! Now all I have to do to make my modern quilts look great is to get some more practice quilting them.

    Jannette B on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe. I have mostly been a traditional quilter but lately I have been doing some more modern quilts. I just finished a modern quilt and am so happy with the way it turned out. I love all of Amy’s books. It would be hard to choose just one.

    —Susan Griffith on October 21, 2014
  • I started out hating the ‘modern’ quilt look,but last summer while at a quilt show, I fell in love! Now I’m enchanted with the clean and simple lines of modern quilts. And whereas I used to think that white was boring, not it seems bright and fresh. Wow, what an epiphany!

    —Lynda McNab on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe, and can’t wait to take a swim. I love modern quilts. Thanks for the chance to win. Love the fabric bundle.

    —Barbara Leatherman on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toes in a few times but I am more of a traditional quilter.

    —Vicki H on October 21, 2014
  • I absolutely love the modern quilt movement. I’m a beginner but I try to learn as much as I can about modern design. I haven’t tried a modern quilt yet but it is my favorite.

    —Elizabeth Kuntz on October 21, 2014
  • My daughter who is 29 continually sends me photos of modern quilts, that she would like me to make. I have stop buying traditional fabric, and be brave. I have made some of the modern quilts I just have to switch up my fabric stash. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Janie on October 21, 2014
  • As a beginner quilter, my toes are at the edge of the bank and ready to take a dip into the modern quilting. I love the pattern "Stepping Stones". I think I could actually tackle this without wanting to give up and putting it aside.
    The colors are adorable, modern but yet so traditional. Amy’s designs have enlightened me on how modern patterns can be used in any home against any type of furniture. Amy’s books are now on my radar list for sure.

    —Linda Robinson on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a dip, made 4 so far. But next one will be traditional

    —Ginimarie on October 21, 2014
  • Ah, yes….I have dipped my toe…..buying lots of fabric, a few books, and pinning lots of ideas on Pinterest. I’ve quilted a couple for customers on my longarm. Soon I’ll stitch one of my own!

    —Marcia Brenner on October 21, 2014
  • I have only dipped my toe in although I do love the fresh clean feel of modern quilts,

    Kim S on October 21, 2014
  • I think I definitely own the pool. I find modern quilts far less overwhelming to look at than traditional ones, plus, the fabrics are gorgeous!

    —Ximena on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped my toe and started to swim. I have been trying to use patterns that are just one block and added my own twist. I just finished a quilt top that the accent was a red center with light, medium, dark black and white prints. Then surrounded by a textured dark gray. Turned out great. Thanks for keeping our minds churning.

    —Rita S on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a swim into modern quilting and would really love to win Amy’s modern fabrics.

    —Julie Schellenberg on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a swim, I love this look.

    —Lynn on October 21, 2014
  • So far, I have taken a swim and love it. But, I definitely want to own the pool! I really love modern quilting and just got a new pattern of Amy’s! I would love to have a book and of course the fabric to make a great modern quilt! Thanks for the opportunity!

    —camille turner on October 21, 2014
  • I’m working on a modern quilt right now…and come to think of it I’ve done quite a few. It seems like all my quilts lately have a modern twist. I love that the art of quilting is not static!

    Nancy Weeks on October 21, 2014
  • I have Amy’s first two books and have made up a few of her patterns. Her instructions are great for all level of quilters. I’ve jumped into the pool and would say I’m dog-paddling in the modern side of the pool. 😀

    Michelle W on October 21, 2014
  • I have only dipped a toe into making modern quilts! By heart I am a traditional quilt person, but am beginning to broaden my interests. The Modern Basic II book would be my choice. Getting my modern "quilting groove" on today!

    Norma on October 21, 2014
  • I’m more of a traditional quilter! I haven’t taken a "Dip" yet into more modern quilts but hopefully will in the future! I do admire many of them. My Sister-in-Law has made some beautiful ones that I really love!

    Barbara Barthle on October 21, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper as well!

    —LaVonne B. on October 21, 2014
  • I’m a "take a swim" level modern quilter. Most of the projects I do probably fall under the modern category. I have Amy’s books!

    —Karen Seitz on October 21, 2014
  • I’m still standing on the pool deck – I love the look, but I’m still a traditionalist! I’m sure the requests I receive from my grandchildren will be on the "modern" side!

    —Sandi Spence on October 21, 2014
  • I have only "dipped a toe" but am thinking modern quilt would be a good way to get started machine quilting a project.

    Barb on October 21, 2014
  • Haven’t even dipped a toe, though I’ve admired some of the designs. Amy’s beautiful fabrics would push me into the pool, I’m sure.

    —Mona on October 21, 2014
  • i’ve tried modern quilting but I still go back to the traditional blocks. Maybe because I’m new at quoting and still need to explore. Thanks for having this giveaway.

    —Ann D on October 21, 2014
  • I’ce only dipped a toe in! Mostly on the backs of other quilts, to be honest. I piece the backs together and they turn out looking like modern quilts themselves. I love modern quilts and will make some for myself (as soon as I get through the list of "to-do" quilts for my family!).

    —Traci lunsford on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe, but I do like modern quilting. It’s easy and relaxing!

    —carolyn white on October 21, 2014

I love everything about the modern quilts…the fabrics and quilting, the beauty of simplicity. Thank you for the opportunity to win and your daily e-mail.

    —cheryl murphy on October 21, 2014
  • If you count drooling over modern quilting books as dipping a toe, then that’s what I’ve done.
    Love the look, fabrics and colors!
    Thanks for the chance!

    —gab on October 21, 2014
  • For now a dip of the toe but not for long! I am mesmerized by the modern trends!

    —Kathy g on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped only a toe in while making a block for our quilt guild exchange. But I attended the first ‘QuiltCon’ in Austin presented by the Modern Quilt Guild and thoroughly enjoyed all the quilts and presenters! Amy’s newest book has so many traditional elements in her fabric choices as well as some designs that I would easily be happy with making one of her quilts.

    —Marie Chat on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t even dipped my toe in…I’m still standing on the shore haha I have very little experience with sewing and absolutely no personal experience with quilting…but I’ve recently become enthralled with it and I’m seeking someone to teach me basics so I can start to learn. I’ve already begun collecting fabric (which is a terrible and expensive habit…not to mention space consuming lol) but I’m so excited to eventually get to start making my very first quilt.
    I can’t wait!!!

    —Sonny on October 21, 2014
  • I’m getting old and my arms are tired but my thoughts are constantly turning towards the "modern quilt" with Amy’s wonderful streamlining ideas. In fact, I can hardly wait to get wet.

    —Norma Weeks on October 21, 2014
  • I’m going to hover somewhere between taken a swim and own the pool – it’s my style.. I love all of these especially Modern Maze.. WONDERFUL stack.. thanks for the opportunity!

    —Kalen on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe but would love to try again. Beings I am more "traditional", I get nervous with all the colors and graphics and trying to put them together. A pack of fat quarters would be great to get me going because I’d know they go together!

    —Ann on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toe in that I have bought a couple of DVD’s with complete directions. I have washed and ironed my fabric and have started cutting. I have a stash that I started when I was working and have added to it since I retired sooooo I’m prepared to get started.

    —nancy minshew on October 21, 2014
  • Forget dipping! LOVE modern quilting, particularly mixed with traditional, and am ready to marathon swim!! Thanks for this opportunity!!

    —Sonya Haff on October 21, 2014
  • I just dipped my toe into modern quilt last month. So I’ve made one and I got a ton of compliments on it. So I’m excited to try more. Thanks for the chance to maybe win the gift to give it a go.

  • Love the new modern fabrics and am ready to try them out!

    —Wendy on October 21, 2014
  • I’m a toe dipper unless you count art quilts as modern. I’m in the middle of creating a simple, modern,scrap, twin bed quilt for charity.

    —Jane on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a swim, but I have not completely forsaken traditional piecing. I adore modern styles and designs as they are so varied…… in fact, doing research has shown me that maybe they are not so modern after all??! I surely enjoy doing improvisational work, creating a quilt as I go along, rather than having pieces all pre-cut before sewing! Thanks for the chance!

    —Elizabeth Bolton on October 21, 2014
  • I have not even dipped a toe yet. However, I have been intrigued by many of the patterns and fabrics I have seen. I love some of the patterns from Amy’s new book. I am looking forward to giving it a try.

    —Deborah on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t done any modern quilts. I have stuck the the basics and traditionals. I am looking forward to my first one.

    —Nikki Wilson on October 21, 2014
  • Not even ‘dipped a toe’, but am intrigued with the modern quilt movement. Would love to ‘get wet’ with all modern quilts can offer.

    —Michele on October 21, 2014
  • I have only dipped a toe with modern quilting and it seems to center around holiday quilts and home decor.I have a few holiday quilts and table runners that are modern. My daughter loves them and my husband doesn’t care. They were fun to make and the colors and angles are non traditional.

    —diane olcott on October 21, 2014
  • I have bought several gray fabrics, which is a very modern color (you couldn’t find it anywhere 3 years ago). I like a lot of the new "modern" designs, but some of them have very large "white" spaces, and I’m a crappy quilter, so those spaces scare me. 🙂

    —Jill Ellis on October 21, 2014
  • My toe is dipped…I found a pattern and bought the fabric to make a modern quilt back in the spring and then work and life got crazy busy. I simply must get to it soon!

    —Robin in New Jersey on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe … Love the look and as I’m a new quilter … Haven’t yet tried!

    —Linda Proett on October 21, 2014
  • I love modern quilts!! The colors, the designs, I love it all! I’m constantly trying new color combos. But because I also love the traditional I’d say I’ve taken a swim and am on my way to owning the pool!

    —Colleen on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t dipped anything yet, but my niece sent me a pic of a living room that she just "loved" and it had 3 different modern quilts in the room. I think she was giving me a hint. It’s time to get wet…..

    —Barbara D on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped my toe in, and I’m ready to swim … after 25 years of traditional quilts, I’m attracted to the ease and fresh look of "modern" quilts and all the great fabrics out now.
    Thanks for the chance to take the plunge!

    —Aggiequilter on October 21, 2014
  • I am just getting into modern quilts. I am certainly finding them a fun, sometimes challenging way of looking at my quilting. The fabric looks lovely and I would love to own my first quilting book on Modern Quilts. Just ordered material for "abacus" and can hardly wait to start!

    —Sunshine on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only just dipped a toe in, but I’m looking forward to completing a modern quilt. It’s quite outside my box as I mostly make scrappy quilts using Civil War fabrics.

    —Heartsdesire on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe is all thusfar. I tend to be quite traditional about my handicrafts for some reason. :o)

    —Cheryl on October 21, 2014

    —DIANE on October 21, 2014
  • Started quilting just over a year ago. My teacher and. Mentor is a traditionalist, but my choices of both color and style are clearly modern. I have about 4 ideas in my head for every project I have started, and I’m always working on multiple projects.

    —Randi Roten on October 21, 2014
  • I have not done any modern quilts but would love to give it a try. The quilts in the book look real nice.

    —Karen on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve always gone traditional in my quiltmaking, but it seems that Amy is combining the two styles. I’m ready for some new challanges, and like bold and bright fabrics, so would like to take the plunge. Thanks for the chance to win modern fabrics!

    —Bea K on October 21, 2014
  • I love the look of her quilts and will certainly give it a go. I’d really love the book – but that bundle of fabric would bring me lots to play & experiment with.

    —Margaret Munson on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe but LOVE the clean look. Bring it on!!

    —Lana on October 21, 2014
  • Really have just removed my shoes and socks… preparing for the plunge. My mother has quilted for years and I have decided follow suit. Have taken one course – done a (very) simple top – am keen to keep going. I love the concept of "modern" quilt, especially when it is done with one block. Single blocks give me the opportunity to practice sewing and piecing. Modern quilts let me give into the beauty of fabric that is available today.

    —Fran on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t really done much with Modern Quilting but I sure do like it. Lots of low volume and negative space is very appealing.

    —LJ on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve taken a swim but as in real life I’m not such a good swimmer! I think I need more practice:-)

    —Hildy on October 21, 2014
  • I think some of the quilts I’ve made would qualify as "modern", but I certainly didn’t think of them as that at the time!

    —Elizabeth Monahan on October 21, 2014
  • I had a fat quarter bundle of modern prints that I bought for a sew along that I never did and some white background fabric. I recently needed baby quilts and no money to buy fabric. I looked through my books and one on scrap fabric quilts had something called "Blooms" I think. I made one with reds and pinks for the girl and blue and yellows for the boy. They came out pretty nice. Otherwise I have always been traditional colors and traditional patterns.

  • I am new to quilting and would love to try a modern quilt when I am finished with my current project.

    —Fay on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve done modern, at least I call it modern. Amy has such wonderful ideas on her blog. Know the book will be a success.

    —Shelor on October 21, 2014
  • Since I’m still a "newbie" quilter, I try to challenge myself with something new with each quilt I make. I have so far completed one quilt that would be considered "modern"…hope to do more of that genre. Amy’s book on Modern Neutrals looks intriguing…fingers crossed!

    —Diane Dashevsky on October 21, 2014
  • I have just dipped my toe in. But I have a new quilting friend that is very "modern" so it has begun……first a little stash and then a few patterns and then……

    —Dee on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only made one modern style quilt. It was fun to make -large churn dash blocks made with 9 different shades of green. . Really hjappy with it

    —Faith Stanton on October 21, 2014
  • I think I only dipped a toe into modern quilting. But I love it very much!

    Martina on October 21, 2014
  • Alas!! and Alack!! I have not yet hooked up with Amy but would be so happy to dip my toe and take a swim in my own pool of fabrics in my stash. I’m sure I have on hand the very fabs that will work well with her ideas/patterns.

    —Donna Pitts on October 21, 2014
  • The batik club I belong to is doing a quilt out of the Modern Neutrals. My dive into it will be the wave. I have a lot of nautical fabric that will be perfect for it! I love the look of your quilts. Anxious to see the new book coming out.

  • I’m going to QuiltCon in Austin in Feb.- the modern quilt guild puts on the show. So I love modern quilts! The last 5 quilts I’ve made are modern- which my local guild doesn’t really "get". However, I don’t own the pool (?) but I’m definitely all in!

    —Wendy M on October 21, 2014
  • I like modern quilts, but haven’t made any yet.

    —Deb G in VA on October 21, 2014
  • Modern quilting scares me, I’m much more into traditional and reproduction quilts – but you know what they say – face your fears!

    —Leslie on October 21, 2014
  • I am a traditional quilter who loves the clean look of modern quilts–so my old fashioned blocks are often combined with lots of white or other neutral fabrics.

    —Catherine on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toe in. I have one quilt that I made that fits the term "modern quilt" and it is amazing!

  • I’m at the dipped the toe in stage but moving fast towards water over my head. I just purchased a new Janome machine that quilts and just finished my Granddaughters Sunbonnet Sue quilt. I have quilted a little in the past, but have always given them away. As I get closer to retirement, I’m looking forward to quilting a lot. Thanks for the opportunity to win this fabric and a new book.

  • I’ve dipped a toe but ready to dive in!

    Sam Bane on October 21, 2014
  • Mostly I do traditional but have the used the much simpler modern look for grandchildren who don’t always take care of things the way one would like. That way, I have a much smaller investment of time and effort. Save their intricately pieced quilts for their 20″s.

    —Judith L on October 21, 2014
  • Modern quilting, I tend to quilt rather independently and never realized that my quilting was modern until I recieved Amy’s first book, and the en continued to collect then because the followed my taste. I’m excited by this line of fabric it think it will make a fun quilt for my son. Who love those color and shapes. I am looking forward to think big.

    —Tove Leggett on October 21, 2014
  • I HAVE "TAKEN A SWIM" SEVERAL TIMES. I AM TIRED OF THE TRADITIONAL QUILTS WITH THEIR MUDDY COLORS. i LOVE THE NEW IDEAS AND THE FRESH COLORS OF THE MODERN QUILTS. GOOD FOR ME FOR TRYING IT OUT AND GREAT FOR YOU FOR DEVELOPING THIS NEW STYLE!

  • I haven’t dipped my toe into the pool yet but have definitely been bitten by the bug! Esp. after seeing many fabulous quilts at our local quilt show last weekend. Ooooh!

    Susan Mulvihill on October 21, 2014
  • My last several quilts have been moderns- I am falling in love with some of the modern prints out there. I like a scrappy modern look.

    —Barbara Ostrander on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe in. I’ve combined modern look with traditional patchwork blocks to create lap quilts for senior citizens.

    —Grace B. on October 21, 2014
  • While my taste runs more to traditional quilts; the quilts that I have made recently are modern quilts. The quilts have been gifts for younger people so the quilts are either modern in pattern or fabric or both. And I have to admit, there are modern quilts that are appealing to "old dogs" like me.

    —DebMac on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only done one quilt that I designed. However I don’t like the more abstract type of modern quilt. Rather, I like those with a geometric type effect and have bee looking towards making one recently.

    —Joan Horton on October 21, 2014
  • I would say I’m swimming. I’ve found that most houses these days don’t look right with traditional quilts on the beds but I love quilts and quilting so that is where my passion lies now. And there are so many wonderful young quilters like Amy helping us with wonderful ideas. Even if you don’t follow her patterns exactly they are a magic jump off point for your own inspiration. Keep the books coming Amy. I’m loving them.

    —Helen on October 21, 2014
  • Actually I haven’t been quilting very long so I have only "dipped a toe" but I would like to try doing more modern quilts in the near future…. the fabrics shown are so beautiful and the books all are amazing….

    —Sharilyn on October 21, 2014
  • I started by dipping in a toe, but ended up making 3 modern quilts in a row using up a stash of white that I thought I had no use for and adding in some perky modern color combinations. I’m not sure I own the pool yet but I am definitely soaking wet at this point! Using a single block speeds the quilt along and what quilter doesn’t love to see the finished project asap?

    —Sarah Silk on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toe in with one queen sized quilt

    —Louise peeler on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve been dipping my toes recently and have been enjoying seeing the new fabrics and designs. It’s so great to see quilting traditions continue and keep growing too.

    —Debbie on October 21, 2014
  • In the scheme of things, I’m between a dip and in the pool. I’m finding out that some "traditional" patterns can have a "modern" look with the right fabrics. I also have made some block patterns larger which makes the quilt itself more in the modern mode with bolder and brighter fabric combinations. With my grandchildren, i’m finding that they love the look of modern quilt designs so I’m having a lot of fun with them and the patterns.

    —Jeanette Fairman on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve made a couple of quilts that I consider "modern" — with more open space and less symmetry. Thanks for the chance to win those great fabrics and book!

  • I am getting ready to dip my toe as I’ve been asked to enter a challenge and am using modern quilts as inspiration for my pattern design. I am relatively new to quilting and several styles appeal to me. These fabrics and book would go far to help me be immersed in this style!

    —Jane Marlow on October 21, 2014
  • I’m a toe dipper having only made a throw quilt so far. However I am in love with modern fabric and as soon as I recover from recent back surgery, I am so looking forward to making a new modern quilt. Lovely fabric and great books. Good luck to everyone.

    —Tammy on October 21, 2014
  • I have not even dipped my toe in it. I have looked at different quilts and do see some that I like but they are closer to traditional then they are modern.

  • I have been wet for a long time! I love new ideas and try to incorporate them into quilting.

    —Brenda Hulsey on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe and am soon to be moving up….from proof reading my friends patterns (she’s a Moda Bake Shop Chef)to making her quilts to practice my skills by trying her patterns to be sure they are fool proof. So far so good. Love the fabrics in the give away.

    —Barbara Dolan on October 21, 2014
  • I’m just dipping my toe in, still! I’ve made two little jelly roll race quilts, and I’m making my first twin size now.

    alianora on October 21, 2014
  • I would say I’ve only dipped a toe in modern quilting as I’ve only complete 2 quilts. One of them would probably be classified as "modern." I really need to do more quilting. Something smaller than a queen-sized quilt. LOL

  • I am much more comfortable with "modern" quilting, yet with this take on traditional fabric, a great

    —Virginia in Tx on October 21, 2014
  • I feel like I’ve just dipped my toe into quilting in general. I do love many of the things labeled as modern. And I LOVE making pixelated quilts, which I guess could be considered modern.

    Kara Bovenizer on October 21, 2014
  • moda fabric is my very favorite of all times. i have a pillow quilt made of moda fabric and even after many washes it’s color has not faded. the fabric is still like new. i love the colors and the vintage look of alot of the fabric.

  • I’m a new quilter, so I don’t have a particular pool that I like to swim in exclusively. I’d rather swim around in every pool I can find just to see what it’s like!

  • I’ve dipped a toe, but would like to add more modern fabrics to my collection. Just finished a modern baby quilt for my first grand daughter.

    —KC on October 21, 2014
  • I guess I’m a toe dipper – I usually create quilts using my own designs (which I envision in my head), and they have some block elements in them. My quilts are modern in a sense that they don’t look like everyone elses, and though they may have some traditional elements, they don’t usually follow a set pattern. (Maybe I’m already modern?) All I know is I have a lot of fun making them! Thanks for the giveaway, do love the feel of Amy’s designs.

    Denise L. on October 21, 2014
  • I’m not sure at what point in the metaphor I am now. While I dislike doing the same block over and over, (ADHD or just a retired teacher finally exhausted by repetition?), I will be interested to see the book with the big blocks as it will probably mean less repetition. I’m not generally opposed to this technique as I have made "one block" quilts when learning something new or for a desired effect, I like to come up with my own ideas on designing a quilt for a specific purpose. In the past year, I’ve made 2 T-shirt quilts, so I’ve had to come up with my own design. I also did a 16 fabric Suduko, which I have never heard of before. I’ve also made wall hangings of my own design using pictures to memorialize a pet for a friend. So in conclusion, I like modern quilts, but I’m my own designer and use the purpose and the fabric for creating the quilt and don’t necessarily follow a preconceived pattern.

    —Rosemary on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only "dipped a toe" by starting to collect modern fabrics. They’re so fresh and different!

    —Dar W on October 21, 2014

  • I would say my experience with modern quilting is that I have taken a swim. I used to stick to more traditional patterns, but there are so many great new ideas out there now that have caught my eye, that I’ve branched out quite a bit.

    —Susan on October 21, 2014
  • I love Amy’s new fabric line for Moda and I think Modern Neutrals the book and the fabric would make a perfect pairing to make my own version of ‘Circuit Board’
    I have played quite a bit with modern quilting and have started a fledgling modern quilting group where I live.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win. 🙂

  • In reality, I’ve dipped my toe into modern quilting. But in my head, I am swimming in the deep end & planning to buy the pool! 😀 I love the look of modern quilts. Most of the ideas, pictures, & magazines I have gathered over the last couple of years all have modern quilting involved. I have looked at so many "drool worthy" pictures of modern quilts…….I just love the clean lines, color combos & the quilting that enhances the whole quilt! Thanks for the chance to win the pretty modern fabrics and the e-book! 😀

    —Pam on October 21, 2014
  • Love the quilts in this book! "Sew" pretty! I have not made a modern quilt, but would love to give it a try.

    —jane d on October 21, 2014
  • I totally jumped in for one quilt for my nephew. He said any color was OK but no flowers! in the quilt. Well my stash was unbelievably full of a bit of flowers on everything. Bright and bold were collected for his quilt and a year later my first "modern" type quilt was completed. Since then, 9 years ago, "modern" quilts have evolved tremendously, and I think for the better. The style of quilting for them is very interesting to me as well.

    —Mary D - OKC on October 21, 2014
  • Very beautiful shades just the note I like to include in my quilts.

    helen cherveny on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe…its fun from both a design and color point of view. I also like the way many modern quilts are finished…no borders and quilted with lines of stitching.

    —Ann KUhn on October 21, 2014
  • I am a swimmer and I love what I saw in the modern quilting books. I love a combination of traditional and modern and to me some of those patterns are just that. How great it would be to win the fat quarters, they would be put to good use.

    Thanks Martingale!!

  • I’m swimming upstream. Moving from traditional to the modern takes retraining the brain. Having the modern fabrics and the modern patterns available makes it so much easier to swim upstream!

    —marlene on October 21, 2014
  • Not sure if I "own" the pool but I am one of the original founding members of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild and I definitely don’t make anything that isn’t modern. I do prefer to work from patterns, though; I have a math-y brain and I just prefer it to full-on improv.

    —Heather C on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve liked some of the designs, but I’m not sure of the new colorways, but I am now collecting some patterns to make after I finish a couple of projects.

  • The first quilting book I ever bought – and still love – is Modern Basics! I made "Modern Mirrors" for my granddaughter’s 16th birthday. I think I’m hooked on the modern quilting style. I’ve recently bought a Zen Chic pattern, some Jaybird Quilts patterns and Quick Curve Ruler patterns… Now I need to start sewing them up!
    I really like Amy Ellis’ writing style. Her new fabric line is beautiful. I would love to win a bundle of it and a copy of another of her books. In fact, I’m looking forward to her Think Big book!

    —Pamela on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve loved quilting for lots of years, but haven’t really thought about whether my quilts were modern or not. I love the beautiful fabric and the books. Modern maze would be a fun quilt to try.

    —Karen Watkins on October 21, 2014
  • Swimming! for sure! I love the fabrics and find myself inspired to relook at everything from a cleaner and clearer perspective. Right now modern quilts feel happier to me. I like that I am applying what I learned in my 25 years of quilting according to other people’s designs and am now creating MY OWN!

    —Jeannie on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toes in and maybe waded a bit. With two 30 year old daughters wanting modern quilts it has helped. But I am beginning to be drawn to the modern fabric which is quite a change for me. I love it!!

  • I guess I will always lean toward the traditional blocks, but, having said that, I am really excited by some of the really graphic results solid fabrics and ‘modern’ designs produce. They really catch your eye and draw you in. And everyone knows that change keeps any craft interesting and lively.

    Barbara Nevaril on October 21, 2014
  • I’m a toe dipper because I have only made one wall hanging. On vacation last year, I went into a quilt store. There it was, fabric that would make me try modern quilting. Several geometric pieces in "wow" colors. It turned out beautiful.

  • Like Sonny, I’m a newbie to quilting, although I did do quite a lot of sewing when my children were small: dresses, skirts etc for my daughter and dungarees and shirts for my son. I’ve also made curtains and the occasional blind for our current home. Now I’ve discovered the fabulous fabrics available nowadays, I can’t wait to create lots of lovely quilted items for us and other members of the family. Love the modern quilt ideas and Moda just make the best fabrics ever = great combination!

I love modern quilts and am working up the nerve to try an improvised quilt. Hope to soon take a swim! Love Amy’s modern neutrals line and her book looks fantastic for a beginner like myself.

  • I am in the process of completing my first modern quilt. The quilt is based on a log cabin block with a five inch batik center, two one inch batik strips and two two inch batik strips. Two gray and two white strips complete the block. Each block is like a little water color painting within the gray and white grid.

  • Love the look in baby quilts!

    —Karen on October 21, 2014
  • Thinking about dipping a toe in, but I usually do traditional, scrappy quilts.

    Laura on October 21, 2014
  • I’m standing on the edge, looking at the pool. I’ve done one quilt, a Project Linus kit that I was given. Now I’m ready to discover my style!

    —Marsha T on October 21, 2014
  • Take a swim. I am swimming it may be in circles trying to figure it all out but it is fun.

    —Kalynn Fail on October 21, 2014
  • Personally I have done More than dipping but less than swimming. I love the modern look including brights in fabric while enjoying the traditional skills. Frankly good design is good design and quilts 100+ years old are still beloved today. Modern quilting is just a new way of looking at quilting.

    —Stephanie Lau on October 21, 2014
  • I would say defined dipped a toe. I have looked at a lot of "modern" quilts and some I like, but many I don’t. So, I want to dip a toe in the water and try it, just like I did "traditional " quilting.

    —Susan on October 21, 2014
  • I have several quilt books featuring modern quilts, but I haven’t made one yet. I have a couple of baby quilts which I must finish first, but I have a couple of ‘modern’ quilts planned. I think I’ll be able to use some of the so-called modern techniques and blocks into my more traditional style to make it my own.

    —Carol on October 21, 2014
  • Well, I don’t own a pool, but have dipped my toes in the water a time or two…I have tried to experiment with different quilting designs, and some turn out good, others, eh. But would love to win a new book and fabric to try my hand and dip my toe into something new…

    —Jeanette on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped in my toes and even gotten wet a little as I explore modern quilting. Sometimes I use modern techniques and design with traditional fabrics and sometimes, the opposite. I love looking at modern quilts at shows and am still accumulating ideas on how to translate them for myself.

    —Gail D. on October 21, 2014
  • Being relatively new to quilting, I’ve just ‘dipped my toe’ with the completion of a modern valentine quilt; however, after viewing Amy’s quilts, I certainly want to begin to ‘wade’!

    —Nancy on October 21, 2014
  • I am about to dip my toe in modern quilts. I have all the fabric and a pattern. I really like Amy’s designs, especially the first one pictured that showcases a lovely print.

    Patricia Hoon on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe! Beautiful neutral colors in her new fabrics.

    —Barb on October 21, 2014
  • My toe goes in and out of the water…love modern quilts for quick baby gifts and sending teens off to college , but sometimes savor the traditional patterns, just for the process.

    —Patricia on October 21, 2014
  • I love traditional patterns with a modern flare!

    —theresa sheldon on October 21, 2014
  • I have not even dipped a toe in yet but rather sitting on a rock admiring from a distance… I would love to give it a try as I know my daughters would love one or two… LOL thanks for a chance to win

    —Heather Porritt on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve got my whole foot in! I’m loving every minute. I’m still sewing/quilting like a novice but I see improvement in my skills all the time. I would love to include "modern quilt" in my library. Thanks!

    —Karen Cushenberry on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe I guess. I just make what I like and don’t try to categorize it. I did make the cover quilt of Modern Basics.

    —MoeWest on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped my toes in. I’ve been leaning towards and just bought some modern fabric that I’m going to make a truly modern quilt.

    —Mindy Saye on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe, but want to "swim" more. Today’s designers are getting better and better, as far as attracting the attention of a traditional quilt lover like myself. I especially like what I see in these new books. Hope I win!

    —Sarah Evanko on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve just begun collecting some solids to take a "dip" into more Modern quilting with a solid color sampler. I really am enjoying thinking about making some more with the beautiful fabrics and the ideas posted here!

    —Sue on October 21, 2014
  • I love modern quilts and have made a few. Love Amy Ellis.

    —Lisa E on October 21, 2014
  • I am barely at "dipped a toe" I love all the modern fabrics and patterns. Can’t wait to get started.

    —Olga on October 21, 2014
  • I’m getting into modern quilts and loving them. Thanks for the chance.

    —amy f on October 21, 2014
  • I have ever so gently dipped the tip of my toes into the modern quilt venue by purchasing Amy’s second book. I am in awe of the simplicity of designs and the fabrics she used in her quilts. Having always been a very traditional quilter who loves Civil War and 1930’s fabrics, I have purchased only a few of the modern fabrics so far. I believe winning Amy’s fat quarter bunch of fabrics would definitely get me into the pool. It’s time to immerse myself in the basic revolution.

    —Rose White on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve taken a swim and I’m still swimming. Have done several modern quilts, but hope to do more.

    —Nancy Harvey on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe – getting ready to start swimming!

    —Karon on October 21, 2014
  • I’m swimming, but don’t own the pool. I like the simplicity of moderns and love the attention that the actual quilting, not just the piecing, gets!

    —Nancy W on October 21, 2014
  • I have gotten both feet WET, own the pool (& could open a store with fabric I HIDE!) & seeing what various crowds are doing, since I am an OLDIE traditionalist. VERY interesting to peek into to minds of younger set of quilters- it sometimes mixes well, just like being together -70 year old (me) finds the young to be interesting & FULL of new ideas. The younger set finds OLDIES to be ‘their Mother’s quilting type.’ Yet we do mix, & wonderfully, if only we give each other that great chance! I see,I learn & I LOVE it ALL.Thanks for giving us all a chance to win, which I WILL share with another!! (IF I win!)

    —Alene Knox on October 21, 2014
  • Have tried to combine the two. Successfully, I hope so.

    —Rivka Hamdani on October 21, 2014
  • Not yet ready for the deep end (although my husband claims I have already gone off the deep end 😉

    —Lynne on October 21, 2014
  • Jumped in the deep and and have been happily treading water ever since!

    Karen F on October 21, 2014
  • I have my toe dipped in but I’m itching to try some of Amy’s patterns.

    —Ellie on October 21, 2014
  • I have done nothing more than dipped my toe in modern quilting, and I don’t know what’s holding me back. The quilts shown prove they are just as beautiful as the traditional versions. I guess it is time to move on.

    —Gayle S on October 21, 2014
  • I took the plunge, dove into the deep end of the pool, and now I own the pool!! Love Modern quilts and have made a couple from Amy’s Books! Can’t wiat for the new book to be available!!

    —Cheryl V. on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken many swims and find modern quilting to be fun! I still haven’t tried an all solids quilt yet, but it’s something I hope to do one day.

    —Lisa Marie on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped all my toes in and made several quilts that could be called modern.
    I did buy the Modern Neutrals book a while ago and have a few quilts bookmarked in it, but haven’t actually attempted any yet.
    It would be great to win these fabrics.

    —Sarah on October 21, 2014
  • I jumped right in the pool, when my daughter showed me the pattern she wanted for her christmas quilt. LOL and away I go!

    —Dot on October 21, 2014
  • It’s on my to do list just waiting for the perfect fabric. Amy Ellis’s book would be the perfect motivation.

    —Terry on October 21, 2014
  • Own the pool! I find modern quilts a fun challenge for making stash quilts. Everything old is new again!

    —Sally on October 21, 2014
  • I have not personally made a modern quilt as yet, but I do belong to a quilting guild where many of our speakers have shared modern quilts which I admired. Some day, when my doll clothing sewing business allows the time!

    —Marjory W on October 21, 2014
  • The modern look is quite interesting. I lean more toward traditional, but the modern looks are getting more interesting.

    —Shirley Williams on October 21, 2014
  • I love the color combinations and linear looks of the quilts.

    —Blanche Lozar on October 21, 2014
  • Love the first quilt!
    I’ve dipped a couple of toes!

    —Gill on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve waded in about to the knees – time for a swim! "Modern" stash enhancement would certainly help!

    —Gwen W on October 21, 2014
  • I have never tried Modern Quilting, the patterns look so random and easy to do. Thank you for giving me the chance to win,

    —Linda King on October 21, 2014
  • Just dipped a toe so far. I’ve got my second quilt cut and ready to sew once the actual quilting on my first attempt is done.

    —Lesley Moore on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe in, ha ha.

    —Helen on October 21, 2014
  • I’m in the middle, looking at both shorelines. I’ve done a little and want to explore the "modern" more thoroughly. I find Amy’s quilts intriguing.

    —Carol Sc on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toe in the modern quilting pool. However, I am ready to jump in with both feet! I have an idea for a quilt…just trying to get some other items off the list first. 😉

    —Susie Furgason on October 21, 2014
  • I have all her books – except for the latest. I love quilting and modern quilts especially. The same goes for fabrics. I tend to lean towards modern fabrics rather than traditional. Also I think that the bloggers quilt festival deserves a little mention here. It a tremendous event for quilters in general and I love the variety of modern quilts.

    Cille on October 21, 2014
  • The Modern Neutrals fabric and the Modern Neutrals book both appeal to me. I thing it’s high time that I start to move my style into the 21st century and these would definitely motivate me in that direction.

    —Marilyn on October 21, 2014
  • PLZ!!

    —Cyndi Byrnes on October 21, 2014
  • I love batiks and so modern quilts. I am trying desperately to stay afloat while I swim!!

    —Susan Bray on October 21, 2014
  • Love modern quilting, though I’m self-described as transitional. I do a bit of everything frim super traditional to totally improv.

    —Rachel Trindle on October 21, 2014
  • Only dipped a toe, but eager to swim a few laps! I love some of the new "modern" colors that are coming out, and
    am already comfortable with some of the techniques. Looking forward to seeing more in Houston!

    —Carole on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped more than a toe, but not full-out swimming quite yet. I like many of the modern fabrics and ideas, but just as with any traditional design, I have my own ideas to mix in, and they encompass the entire spectrum! Would love to have more of the modern fabrics and patterns to play with.

    —Suzanprincess on October 21, 2014
  • I love the idea of Modern Neutrals! I make quilts, but don’t think they qualify as modern, so no wet feet here.

    —Jonnie L Staggs on October 21, 2014
  • Only dipped a toe so far.

    —Pam Larson on October 21, 2014
  • The modern pattern with quilting is so exciting and amazing, I love it… 🙂

    —Vibeke Haslund on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve made a few modern quilts but haven’t bought the pool yet.

    —Martha Henrichs on October 21, 2014
  • A toe dipper. Have made about 3 modern quilts and do like them.

    —Sue Galasso on October 21, 2014
  • I do more than dip my tow. I want to swim in the pool of wonderful world of modern quilt making.

    —Lorraine Creaghw on October 21, 2014
  • I have only "dipped a toe" as I learn more and more. These neutrals are wonderful…I saw them, and the new book, Modern Neutrals, at a quilt show just last Saturday.

    —Carol on October 21, 2014
  • I am new to quilting and have learned from traditional quilters. I think I’m ready to try some modern quilt designs. Let me take a dip!

    —Kathleen Goodrich on October 21, 2014
  • Still afraid to jump in. I’m not sure my vision will translate into the modern quilt I think it is, and not look like I drowned trying. The beautiful neutrals figure prominently in my vision so maybe I should just do it!

    —Jennifer P on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a few swims …..Ps love her work very nice/….

    Anna Lutz-Brown on October 21, 2014
  • I’m a toe dipper. Love, love, love the books and the fabric is beautiful.

    —Dianne on October 21, 2014
  • I consider myself a novice quilter, I have many projects in the works at different stages, but have not tried modern, yet, but now I want to start one!

    —Sharee on October 21, 2014
  • Just dipped a toe!! Can’t wait to do more!!!

    —kim hyde on October 21, 2014
  • I have never dipped a toe in but a friend just showed me a modern quilt she made and it is beautiful! And looking at Amy’s books looks like just the thing I would need to push me over the edge and into the pool. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

    Vicki Steckbeck on October 21, 2014
  • I’m a dipping member. I do like the geometric look of many but struggle with too much negative space. I will keep doing some quilts along these lines.

    Linda Z on October 21, 2014
  • Toe dipper! Happy new-to-quilting toe dipper!

    —Laurie Johnson on October 21, 2014

    —Linda on October 21, 2014
  • I Have dipped my toe in, but not sure where the boundaries for the deep end are. Aging bones and mind don’t help. lol

    —Elizajane on October 21, 2014
  • I am a "toe dipper" into modern quilts but am headed to a regular swimmer as I attempt more and more modern quilting and tweaking my traditional favorites into a new modern look.

    —Dee C on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe or two – thanks.

    —Joyce Mitchell on October 21, 2014
  • I’d say I’ve taken a swim 🙂

    —Amy H on October 21, 2014
  • I have just finished my first "modern" quilt (except for the binding) and have gotten completely hooked on the concept. What fun! The books sound great. Can’t wait yo see them.

    —Vicki Krausz on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe….love beautiful fabrics 🙂

    —Madelyn Whitley on October 21, 2014
  • I’m fairly new but I’ve tried a little modern quilting. I really love all of the ways you can make a quilt and design it. So far, I seem to gravitate to modern looks but I love traditional too as long as I can use bright colors. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Tabitha Keener on October 21, 2014
  • I’m trying to swim. I’ve made a couple of modern quilts but don’t like the "extreme" modern. love Amy’s fabric and her designs and would love to win these fat quarters. Thanks for the chance.

    —Gale on October 21, 2014
  • My toes have been dipping into the Modern Quilt Movement for a while. The clean lines and graphic qualities of the quilts appeal to my quilting style.

    —Sandy P on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken the swim a couple of times, and am right now!I love this fabric, and love that I have a chance to win! Thanks!

    —Theresa Myers on October 21, 2014
  • As a relative "newbie" to quilting, I have sticking to the more traditional patterns as I hone my skills and learn the basic techniques. I feel that I am ready to go "modern" now. I love bright colors and high contrast which most of the more traditional patterns do not have. What a wonderful combination this would be to get me started!

    —Kate on October 21, 2014
  • dipped a toe

    Sallie on October 21, 2014
  • I’m learning to swim and loving it. Have joined Melbourne modern Quilt Guild, great ladies.

    —Anne on October 21, 2014
  • I’m still learning how to do everything, so I’ve done a bid of modern and bit of traditional. I like them both!

    —Karen B on October 21, 2014
  • Think I’m still in a lounge chair within sight of the pool.

    —Whiskers on October 21, 2014
  • I have seen some modern quilts I like, but I have yet to dip my toes.

    —Linda Zumwalt on October 21, 2014
  • I have just started quilting and am swimming already !
    thanks for the giveaway….

    —Nancy on October 21, 2014

    —Gwendolyn Clark on October 21, 2014
  • I have not yet tried a modern quilt but would not be against trying at some point. Love the entire experience of quilting

    —DJ Weston on October 21, 2014
  • Maybe dipped a toe. I like to design my own quilts. Need to learn more about putting colors together.

    —Dee Snook on October 21, 2014
  • The great thing about it for me is that I discovered Modern Quilting at the same time that I discovetedy quilting at all. So I dont have to re-wire my outlook or adjust my quilting philosophy. I loveeee Modern Quilting! I love how different and fun it is. I especially love improv! Love to be free to create! So…. to answer your question, I am a relatively new quilter who is swimming happily in the Modern Quilting pool and loving every second of it!! ♡☆

    —Leandra Grigsby on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped my toe, sat on the edge and jumped in, am floundering a bit, but love every time I try something different, maybe i’ll get to swim a small distance soon.

    —Lois Shirley on October 21, 2014
  • I am new to quilting and haven’t done any modern designs. I have taken traditional 12in pieced blocks and made them in bright modern prints; that’s about as close as I’ve gotten to modern quilting.

    —Vanessa on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped one toe by making a baby quilt but don’t really plan on getting too wet.

    —LeAnne L on October 21, 2014
  • I think I could be classed as taken a swim, but it was before the style was classified as Modern Quilting ;D
    I used to work at a quilt shop and loved swapping my pay for fabric each week. I would buy a metre of each fabric in a range and then find ways of showcasing them. Admittedly, I didn’t have quite so much blank space as the Modern Quilts have these days, but I was drawn to simplicity (and having to match as few seams as possible!!)

    I love being a quilter!! The way the styles shift and change and come back on themselves. When I started quilting the fashion was for deep, rich colours – very warm and cosy. Then the floral romantic fabrics took our fancy and now the bright, crisp moderns are thrilling us.

    Aaahhhgggg!!! I’ve just started work and now I want to go home and play with fabric #:@ Waaaa!

    —Kayt Deans on October 21, 2014
  • I occasionally go for a swim!

    —Patti on October 21, 2014
  • I love modern quilts! More room for quilting!

    —Claudia Burns on October 21, 2014
  • I am a beginner, and have only dipped a toe in modern quilting….but that is the direction I am heading…..I love the easy ones, because I am not very good at it……I just ordered one of her books . Modern Basics….because I like the fast easy quilts and the colors. I would love to win the fabrics….I am in love with and have only used Moda fabrics so far. I am on my third quilt now, and loving the process….I am terrible at picking out fabrics, that’s why I love the Moda layer cakes, and charm packs….

  • I have only thought about dipping a toe, but the decision is made to do so!

    —Betty F. on October 21, 2014
  • I’m definitely a toe dipper. Usually sticking to table runners and lap quilts too. These color combinations look really awesome!

    —Sherry Shine on October 21, 2014
  • I own my own pool. MOST DAYS! Some days are toe dipping.

    —MelanieV on October 21, 2014
  • I would say that I have more than dipped a toe; but not gone swimming yet. Maybe I’m in the kiddie pool. I love the clean, crisp look of a solid mixed with some of the new vibrant colors that are so prevalent in the modern quilts. And I have made several, 6 or 7 maybe, of that style. But I also like the look of a traditional pieced quilt as well. Thank you for the opportunity of winning one of Amy’s books and her new fabric.

    —Diane on October 21, 2014
  • I have just started to look at modern quilts. I find they display the fabric and colors in a very appealing way.

    —Pat Stripeik on October 21, 2014

    —Jeanne on October 21, 2014
  • I’m only a 2nd year quilter, but so far, I’ve mastered piecing, foundation paper-piecing, & strip piecing. My next quilt will be a hexi-yo quilt. I use modern colors combos for my traditional quilts.

    Carrie Isoldi on October 21, 2014
  • I love Modern quilts, but have only made blocks so far. I’ve never made enough blocks to make it into a quilt. My big problem is how to get all that white space quilted closely. I think my longarmer would charge me $2,000!

    —Bonnie Booy on October 21, 2014
  • Haha! I’ve done a few laps in the pool 🙂

    —Lorelei on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve dipped in a toe, buy am very interested in Modern design.

    —Joan Unruh on October 21, 2014
  • I will soon be taking the plunge as my grand daughter has requested a Modern quilt in purples..Hope the water is fine…

    —Bonnie on October 21, 2014
  • I recently purchased a modern quilt pattern and a fabric pack which will be my first experience with a modern quilt. I am very excited to make it!!

    Diane Hinton on October 21, 2014

  • My shoes are unlaced, thinking about dipping my toes. Just have to get up the nerve!

    —Diana on October 21, 2014
  • Well, I’d say I’ve taken a swim and go a little further every time. Thanks so much!

    Barb in MI on October 21, 2014
  • I have sat at the edge of the pool, dangling my feet in the water, but never quite swam with the modern movement. I’ve made some small things, which I love, but no full-sized quilts.

    —Debra George on October 21, 2014
  • Very new, but I love the quilts!

    —Judy S on October 21, 2014
  • I love Amy Ellis’ books! Great fabric too – I love modern quilting! thank you!

    —Lee on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe, but like what I’ve done. Fun! Would love to win these beautiful fabrics.

    —Diana Dobson on October 21, 2014
  • One of these patterns would be perfect for my new jelly roll. I haven’t done many modern quilts, so this would be a wonderful place to start.

    Kathy on October 21, 2014
  • I have made a couple modern and really love them; actually from baby quilts to one that is even too big for a california queen. My stock keeps compiling; both books and fabric…and it’s never enough!!

    Shirley Jensen on October 21, 2014
  • Taken a swim. Good for the soul.

    —Robin W on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe, and maybe gotten the hem of my jeans wet. I am kind of known for hand quilting, so moving to more machine quilting and variations on traditional blocks have been my biggest moves toward modern. Some of the new color combinations are quite fun and tempting.

    —Peggy Hallstrom on October 21, 2014
  • I haven’t done any modern quilts, but like a couple of the designs in Modern Neutrals and Modern Basics. I would love the fabric to get me inspired for one of these.

    —Sherry Jurykovsky on October 21, 2014
  • just a toe but I’m willing…………

  • I’ve only made one quilt, but I like most of them. Some of them aren’t my cup of tea, but the one’s above are really cute. Look forward to making one in the future. Good luck everyone. thanks for the giveaway.

    —Janet Pierce on October 21, 2014
  • I like to look at them but haven’t done any really. Quilting isn’t my favorite part so have been hesitant to start making them. I like Modern Neutrals best

    Phyllis Baas on October 21, 2014
  • I have been dipping a toe or maybe two…. loving all the styles that I see developing and I see some marvels with this author! Would love to try some …. so pick me!

    —Tonie Peterson on October 21, 2014
  • I guess I’m taking a swim. I have made several quilts that are modern, maybe because they are typically quick and have lots of space for the quilting to show.

    —Janice Mc Laren on October 21, 2014
  • Just starting out-normally do more traditional quilts

    —valerie csmith on October 21, 2014
  • I am yet to get wet! I love swimming laps, so it’s time for me to dive right in and get swimming. And these fabrics are the perfect way for me to get wet, especially with the right teacher to keep me in my lane. Thanks for the push into the deep end. I’m not going to sink, I’m going to strike out with strong and straight strokes!!

    —SueP on October 21, 2014
  • I am fairly new to quilting.Currently working on numbers 4 and 5. Haven’t checked out modern quilting yet but would love to!

  • I own a pool! I only make modern quilts

    —RKounez on October 21, 2014
  • I think I’d dipped more than a toe. I don’t classify myself as a "type", I make what I like with the fabric choices I like and I like a broad range of designs and patterns.

    —Mom C on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve taken a dip! I actually prefer the modern fabrics and patterns over the traditional. My friend taught me how to quilt somewhat recently, using a modern block pattern. She has me hooked! Now I make baby quilts in modern block patterns for family and friends, which is lots of fun! I hope to go from dipping to diving into the pool soon! I have yet to purchase a book with patterns. Winning the book sure would help, and I am in love with Amy’s fabric! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Jane Scott on October 21, 2014
  • Toe dipper here! to people who do not sew my quilts are a wonder. When I go to a quilt show, I wonder ….how I could ever make quilts as beautiful as the exhibitors did. It is always humbling. I love the experience of growing in this diverse craft. Amy’s books look exciting. I have never won anything, but you never know, maybe someday!

    —Lynne garver on October 21, 2014

    —Pam on October 21, 2014

    —Jean Thompson on October 21, 2014

  • I’ve dipped a toe but eager to swim regularly, I’m definitely loving it!

    Kim Leavens on October 21, 2014
  • I have made several modern quilts. My daughters keep showing me modern patterns that they would like a quilt from. Even the baby modern quilts are really cute with the right colors. So, guess I have "jumped in" with the help of my daughters.

    —susan on October 21, 2014

    —Mary D on October 21, 2014
  • I have made several modern quilts, but they end up looking quite traditional because so my fabric choices. Love the simplicity of the designs, but I am stuck in an era. LOL!

    —Lori Millsap on October 21, 2014

    —Bellamy L on October 21, 2014

    —Sarah on October 21, 2014

    —Cindy on October 21, 2014

    —Marguerite Guinn on October 21, 2014

    —Sara on October 21, 2014

I love the vintage colors mixed in w new colors bringing it to the current century and bringing my own mark to it! I love color! Like the new colors for kitchens in the fiestaware I think the fabric industry sets the trends!!! If like to think we do that in this field us quilters! Lol I only do quilt but I love to design my own quilts and projects and fabrics. I use them for only me I’m not commercial or do it for other people.

    —Karen M on October 21, 2014

    —Dawn Thrift on October 21, 2014
  • Haven’t even got my feet wet as yet.

    —Bunny Ryan on October 21, 2014

    about trying a little more. It looks exciting.

    —Mary Welman on October 21, 2014
  • Only "dipped a toe" in a BOM. I do like the minimalist look and the colors used. Amy’s book looks interesting. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Clara Chandler on October 21, 2014
  • It’s on my list of quilts to make!

    —Doris P on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe! I am a side liner. Have not made up my mind if I want to invest in a modern quilt project. This "win" would push me over the edge! Sink or swim!

    —Kathy M Boice on October 21, 2014
  • I have taken a swim. I do love the modern style but still love the cold fashioned styles as well. I love to use modern fabrics with the old patterns!!

    —Sherry Fram on October 21, 2014
  • I’d say I have taken a swim, I would consider my style basically modern, but I can’t eliminate elements which might be considered as definitely un-modern, like some batiks now and then. I think it’s not just the fabric, but the design and the quilting that make a quilt modern.
    I’d pick Amy’s newest book as I already own the others. Thanks for the chance!

    —Barbara Orozco on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve been quilting for over forty years, but am just learning to like "modern" quilting.

    —Sharon on October 21, 2014

    —Duane Wiley on October 21, 2014
  • I am relatively new to quilting, not sure if the things that I end up doing are modern – or not! Not really sure if my toe is dipped or just my eye (I do find the quilts labeled modern very pleasing).

    —Karen on October 21, 2014
  • I love so many of the modern quilts! On my short list is a modern dresden plate.

    Wanda Jeffries on October 21, 2014
  • my last five quilts have been modern and may never go back! Our house is mid century and the style goes perfectly. The fabric looks fabulous!

    —Martha on October 21, 2014
  • Dipped a toe–but with these gorgeous fabrics I could be jumping in with both feet! I work with whatever I get donated to make charity quilts so this would be super to be able to make something different actually for myself.

    —Peg Adams on October 21, 2014
  • Barely a toe dipper, but love it and want to learn more and more!

    Cindy on October 21, 2014

    —Debbie Chenoweth on October 21, 2014
  • I dipped my toe with a mystery quilt from a magazine and the fabric didn’t have a flower in sight!! It looks great 🙂 I like both traditional and modern quilting. I wouldn’t not make a quilt because it is modern!!

    —Wilma on October 21, 2014
  • I have "taken a swim". I’ve joined the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild and made several modern quilts. Most importantly, I’m building my modern quilt book library!

    —Christine on October 21, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe in – and I find myself wanting to jump! More and more, I feel drawn to the modern quilting movement. I love to make baby quilts and they are so well suited to large blocks and patterns in fabric. These Moda fabrics look just gorgeous! I would love to be the lucky winner, but I would have a hard time choosing from Amy’s books!

    —Kathy on October 21, 2014
  • Just treading water right now!

    —Nancy on October 21, 2014
  • I have read a lot about it and loved so many of the quilts done in these styles, but so far I have only made one quilt which I think would be considered modern. Most of my projects tend to be very traditional, but I would love to explore more modern patterns and fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Amanda Best on October 21, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped my toe in, but the waters feel fine and I want to cannonball in. I love Amy’s does guns and the fabric is fabulous. Thank you for the great giveaway opportunity.

    —Sandra Chavez on October 22, 2014
  • At the moment I would say I have dipped my toes in, I like what I am seeing from the modern spectrum and have a few ideas for up coming projects. Just need to find the right fabric for the projects before I jump in head first.

    Cynthia on October 22, 2014
  • I’d say I’m wading. I am using more solid colors and modern prints.

    —Kim Rhody on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped my toe in the modern quilting pond so far. My next project will be a design by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr

    —Bryony De La Motte on October 22, 2014

    —Suzanne Keal on October 22, 2014
  • love it.

    —janey wineinger on October 22, 2014

    Marly on October 22, 2014
  • I have yet to take the plunge, I look, I like but I haven’t.

  • Have only dipped my toes into modern quilting so would really enjoy Basic Modern Quilting book for a bit of a dip especially as the weather here is 30degrees Celsius,yes Australia is a hot place to live in.

    —Marion on October 22, 2014
  • Dipped a toe.

    —DebbieLynn on October 22, 2014
  • I’m all in!

    —Gina on October 22, 2014
  • I love the simple approach she takes to making beautiful and modern quilts. That is right up my alley.

    —Donna Largent on October 22, 2014
  • LOL! I haven’t even’dipped a toe’ yet. Love them, just trying to get these UFOs out of my sewing room. Then I will do a few.

    —Cindy on October 22, 2014
  • Dipped a toe, but ready to take the plunge.

    —Michelle cress on October 22, 2014
  • I have dabbled and I love the colors. Would love to win the bundle of those luscious fabrics and/or the book.

    —Pat D on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve definitely only dipped a toe, if I’ve even touched the water at all 🙂

    —Arianna M. on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve barely dipped my toes in.

    —Tara A on October 22, 2014

  • I definitely ‘own the pool’ when it comes to modern quilting. That’s the only type of quilt I make and I belong to a modern quilt group. So much fun and freedom. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

    —Sherry VF on October 22, 2014
  • Actually, I am making my first ‘modern’ quilt now. It is a Christmas gift for a friend. At first, I just didn’t like it at all but now I love it. Can’t wait to get a bit further along on it to share with everyone. It is going to be a beauty. Thanks for a chance to win.

    Jeanne on October 22, 2014
  • So far I have only dipped a toe in modern quilting.

    —Mary Hayes on October 22, 2014
  • I guess I am a dipper. I love to learn new steps as I try new patterns. these prints are pretty and can see them in a future project.

    —janis spencer on October 22, 2014
  • I have only dipped a toe or two 🙂 .

    —Cheryl on October 22, 2014
  • I have made two modern quilts and enjoyed the simplicity very much. They were for my oldest daughter who doesn’t care for what she calls "cutesy wootsie" country quilts. She loves what I made for her. Lots of straight stitching in long lines. I did notice, however, that the judges at the county fair, for several years now, don’t care for modern quilts. I have a lovely gray and white called "Zen" which the judge said was "too simple." Hello? This is Zen…it’s all about simplicity. Oh well…

    —Vickie on October 22, 2014
  • I prefer modern quilting to regular blocks. My attention span isn’t that great (LOL). Thanks.

    —Kathe on October 22, 2014
  • Have not yet made a ‘modern’ style quilt, but love the vibe they have. Would love to try my hand with Amy’s gorgeous fabrics!

    —Marilyn Goehl on October 22, 2014
  • I would say that I have only dipped a toe in. I am more of a traditionalist but would love to give a modern quilt design a try. Always up for something new.

    —Barbara Reifsnider on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe and thinking about taking a swim.

    Deb on October 22, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper, also, mainly because of so many UFOs that are patiently waiting for me to get to them.

    —Janet on October 22, 2014
  • I am a beginner quilter. My next project will be a move from traditional to a more modern quilt.

    —Sandy C on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe but want to try diving in!

    —Claire on October 22, 2014
  • I have only dipped a toe in but I am ready to own the pool! Thanks

    —Wendi M. on October 22, 2014
  • I prefer bright modern fabric colors and a combination of traditional and modern patterns. The quilts shown in the photos look just right!

    Hannah on October 22, 2014
  • My house is over 100 years old but the Modern Quilt is taking over. I LOVE modern quilts.

    —Brenda Bartocci on October 22, 2014
  • I need a nudge.

    —Carolyn on October 22, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe, making a modern quilt for my son. I was so fortunate to have Angela Walters quilt it! She even incorporated my son’s favorite artsy logo into the quilting design.

    —Mary C on October 22, 2014
  • I would say I have "taken a swim"
    Also I adore the stepping stones quilt. I would love to make one just like that, fabrics & all 🙂

    Cheryl Hovey on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve always thought of myself as more of a traditional quilter; however, recently I’ve dipped a toe into the modern style. I have to give my daughter the credit since she chose the pattern and fabric.

    —Virginia Degnan on October 22, 2014
  • I haven’t done much at all with modern quilting…I’ve mostly stuck with the traditional. My mom has really gotten into the modern stuff though.

    —Sarah G. on October 22, 2014
  • Definitely only dipped a toe in the modern look. I didn’t choose very well on the colors and it turned out to be the puppies blankie. Next time will be better.

    —Susan Davies on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a bit and am still crazy about it.

    —Karen Falvey on October 22, 2014
  • Would love to win…

    —Betsy on October 22, 2014
  • I’m slowly getting comfortable with the modern quilting style, encouraged by the delighted response of the people who are gifted with the baby quilts I make. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Donna on October 22, 2014
  • Dipped a toe, barely, but am thinking of going wading.

    —Elaine Judd on October 22, 2014
  • Dipped a toe, water a little cold for my taste.

    —T Hays on October 22, 2014
  • I am still putting on my suit, but liking what I see in the pool!

    —Janet L. on October 22, 2014
  • In the past I did not like quilting, but on my new sewing machine I’m doing it more and more likely, although this is just an ordinary home Juki with a small working space under the free arm. I do always free motion quilting and I lean toward modern designs.

    —Mania on October 22, 2014
  • I have to admit that my toe is in the water – I find modern quilts very refreshing to look at.

    —Allison on October 22, 2014
  • Awesome, Love it

    Tink on October 22, 2014
  • Just learning to quilt and loving every minute!!

    —Lou Darst on October 22, 2014
  • Just dipped a toe in quilting. Haven’t decided on modern or traditional. Do I have too. 🙁 I would love to build my skimpy book collection with Modern Neurals. The material is beautiful.

    —Deidre Hickey on October 22, 2014
  • So far I have dip a toe, with a quilt made for my mother in law, unless rag quilting is modern, if so then I am drowning.

    —Esther Sherrill on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe and the ones I’ve made I love. Would love to win, the fabric is BEAUTIFUL.

    —connie b on October 22, 2014
  • I have definitely dipped a few toes – might even have had a swim – love straight line quilting and negative space.
    Pauline

    —Pauline on October 22, 2014
  • I love the look of modern quilts. I’m looking for the right fabric to try my first one, so guess you could say I’m heading to the pool!

    Carol Gates on October 22, 2014
  • Dipped a toe…but only because I am so new to quilting in general. I love modern quilts, I LOVE modern neutrals 🙂

    —Veronika on October 22, 2014
  • I have only dip my toe as I only have started quilting.

    —sonia afanador on October 22, 2014
  • In
    August I finished my summer quilt. Teals, yellow & greens!!!
    My own design /random size blocks. I love it but it was a challenge.
    I would love modern Neutrals book .

    —Kathy Cummings on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve made some modern quilts with my own fabrics and designs, now I’d like to try using yours! Hope I win!

    —Lynn Miller on October 22, 2014
  • Love them all and not sure which one I would want to start first.

    —Jean Kent on October 22, 2014
  • Swum. I have swum. Made a King Size "Single Girl" modern style quilt out of teals and white for my daughter and her husband. (Don’t worry. We didn’t divulge the name of the pattern.) They love it! Then I made a modern baby quilt for their newest arrival out of bright patterned fabrics, minkee and lots of white. I love modern quilts and traditionals. This book and the fabric look terrific. Thanks for the chance!

    —Diana on October 22, 2014
  • I dipped a toe, but I wish to own the pool! crazy about modern quilts…

    —Margot Torfs on October 22, 2014
  • I have not done any modern quilting but I find myself drawn to it more and more. Plus my granddaughter will be making a quilt for her room and I think modern is something that she is going to like.

    —Dwana on October 22, 2014
  • I have tried a few. 🙂

    Corsara on October 22, 2014
  • Just found the water. Looks inviting.

    Suzann Smith on October 22, 2014
  • I guess you could say I have waded in the baby pool! Have tried some modern quilting, but have not done a lot of it…yet!

    —Carla Ferrier on October 22, 2014
  • Dipped a toe and will be back to test again….

    —Joni Giancola on October 22, 2014
  • Thank you for the chance to win. I’ve yet to try a modern quilt, but hope to soon.

    —Rhonda Best on October 22, 2014
  • I have only dipped a toe but would love to own the pool, the fabrics are very nice

    —John Hutchens on October 22, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe, and hungry for more. I’m still working with quilting all that open space. Great fagrics!

    —Karen B on October 22, 2014
  • I havne’t finished anything, but think I’ve been wading in the modern quilt pool while holding on to the liberated quilting life preserver. Oh that doesn’t make much sense but think I’m inbetween modern and wonky liberated in my style. The fabrics would be perfect inspiration! Thank you so much for the chance.

    —June on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve purchased Modern Basics, so I’d say I’ve dipped my toe in!

    —Kyra McQuary on October 22, 2014
  • I think "dipped a toe" is accurate for me. I have pieced one top in what is considered a modern style. To me, it was just a traditional block with lots of ‘negative space’. Otherwise known as ‘places to play with machine quilting"!

    —Barb Johnson on October 22, 2014
  • Love anything modern. Glad to know about Amy’s new line of fabric. Would love to win this pack!

    —Juleen Jaeger on October 22, 2014
  • I haven’t even dipped my toe but am ready and willing to jump in and start paddling. I have several family members that have new homes and so there are several opportunities to get my feet wet. Thanks for the chance to win the fat quarters.

    —Carlene J on October 22, 2014
  • Gotten my feet wet, but sometimes the pool is too cold to completely jump in!

    Susan on October 22, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe, but have begun to wade in the pool. The modern aesthetic in quilting is lively and refreshing.

    —Janette Velardi on October 22, 2014
  • I just dipped the tip of 1 toe! and it was Amy’s pattern too!

    —Alicia Key on October 22, 2014
  • Love these fabrics. I have entered many giveaways but never won. Maybe this will be my lucky time. I quilt almost daily and would love to have this new fabric to design with.

    —Debbie on October 22, 2014
  • taken a swim and love it

    —Kathy Luehrs on October 22, 2014
  • Right now I am dipping. I really like circuit board (are you sure this isn’t an old pattern with the strong geometrics?). Love the fabrics

    —donna arrington on October 22, 2014
  • I’m still a newbie, so I’ll say dipped a toe 😉

    —Jinger on October 22, 2014
  • dipped a toe – currently trying to come up with the perfect pattern for newlywed Son & Daughter-in-law. Love "Modern Maze" pattern and it would work great for the kids.

    —s.burke on October 22, 2014
  • I think that I’ve barely touched the tip of my big toe into the modern quilting world but I do like the look of them.

    —Julie Zeigler on October 22, 2014
  • Basically have just dipped my toes in but definitely have been wading deeper lately.

    —Sue R. on October 22, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe, but I’d say I’ve only dipped a few toes in quilting altogether, but I really enjoy it!

    —Ashley Lee on October 22, 2014
  • Dipped a toe and got hooked!

    —Inger Martinson on October 23, 2014
  • Just paddeling at the moment trying new things and techniques but have used moda 4 or 5 times as I love the feel of the fabric

    —Christine Withers on October 23, 2014
  • I am new to quilting. My doctor suggested I get a hobby and I love quilting. I would love to win the fabrics for my next quilt.

    —Nancy Lynn Hilderbrand on October 23, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe with neutrals.

    —Ann Barlament on October 23, 2014
  • Getting ready to dip that toe as modern quilts are drawing my eye more and more frequently. Many thanks for the chance to dive right in.

    —Gai Butler on October 23, 2014
  • I’ve made a dozen or so lap quilts so I’m definitely just dipped a toe! Thanks for the sweet giveaway.

    —Janise crumpler on October 23, 2014
  • I look at the modern quilt patterns but have not sewn any. I guess I am trying to finish the traditional ones I have in my to do pile. Love to win some new fabrics.

    —Julia on October 23, 2014
  • I own the pool!

    —KimberJ on October 23, 2014
  • Mine is dipping a toe in as I am more of a traditionalist, but I do like Stepping Stones especially in those colours. Thanks for the chance.

    —Sunnybec on October 23, 2014
  • I have dipped all my toes, stepped down several steps, ready to take a swim. In retirement, I have been able to cross off "learn to quilt". I have made many small 40 X 40 baby quilts for friends. I am about to drop off nine more to the Ronald McDonald House in my area. Every child gets a new quilt when they live there during treatment. I am hooked!

    —Gail Schlenk on October 23, 2014
  • I’d say that I’ve "taken a swim" and stitched together several modern quilts. I really love the blend of modern and traditional styles.

    Jennifer B on October 23, 2014
  • Trying to master intense quilting especially circles.

    Caroline Rohrer on October 23, 2014
  • I’ve only been quilting for a year and I have made a couple of modern quilts. Love the colors and patterns. I love Moda fabrics and would love to have this bundle to add to my stash!

    Nancy Martin on October 23, 2014
  • I’m in the deep end and loving it!

    —Carol Y on October 23, 2014
  • I have been doing primarily modern quilting. It’s the first guild I joined up with and have been loving the modern fabrics. What I really need are some modern neutrals 😉 Fingers crossed!!

    —Beth on October 23, 2014
  • I absolutely love the look of these quilts and I’ve done a few quilt projects and always take on something that is too difficult for me. These quilts are gorgeous and LOOK difficult, but when I look at the smaller block I feel like this is something I can accomplish. Makes me want to start a new project!

    —Jill Ward on October 23, 2014
  • I’m kind of a "look but don’t touch" when it comes to modern quilts. I love them but don’t know how to start. Those are not the fabrics I gravitate to on the bolt but when I see finished quilts I love them. Guess I need help.

    —Karen on October 23, 2014
  • ive made 2 quilts so far and I think I’m hooked, love the simplicity and clean colours, oh but I need to finish a wee stash of traditional quilts too….!

    —Jane Howie on October 23, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper looking to jump in!!!!!!!! As a newbie I could really use the fabric and book:-)

    —Sonja mclane on October 24, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper that would like to jump in

    —Sonja mclane on October 24, 2014
  • I am recently disabled and am dipping my toes!!!! I love quilting and these patterns shown on the blog

    —Sonja mclane on October 24, 2014
  • I appreciate the simplicity of the designs and the use of the background as a palette. The modern quilt movement is enhancing the quilt world with new and fresh ideas.

    —Linda S. on October 24, 2014
  • Definitely gone swimming. =)

    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Moira McSpadden on October 24, 2014
  • I would have to say that I’m a "toe dipper" but would love the chance to try more. Thank you!

    —Darla E on October 24, 2014
  • I have taken a swim by making a couple of modern quilts. Since I also like traditional quilts this book looks like the best of both worlds.

    —Judy on October 24, 2014
  • As a senior citizen, my ‘stash’ is showing it’s age, too! I took my Grandchildren to the quilt store and told them to each pick out a yard of fabric; one piece they loved, or fat quarters. I thought I could use their choices to pick the remaining yardage needed from my stash. WRONG! Moda’s fabrics and Amy’s patterns could help revive my quilt projects!

    —Gina M on October 24, 2014
  • I have dived in completely! I LOVE modern quilts. I think they are more interesting and show off modern fabrics really well.

    —cj on October 24, 2014
  • I like the idea of twisting tradition. I think the tradition is our foundation, and then we should be able to tweak it just enough to make it our own. Modern quilting seems to do just that. We can easily find the traditional blocks in modern quilting if we know what to seek.

    —Bro AJK on October 24, 2014
  • The pool is definitely in my backyard.

    —Tamie on October 24, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a couple toes in but would like to dive in and swim with these quilt pattern ideas.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on October 24, 2014
  • Just dipped a toe and now realize I need new fabrics- still have a few calicos in my stash!!

    —Linda Perry on October 24, 2014
  • I’ve made a modern wall hanging from beautiful batik strips. Very striking look. Love the fabric!

    —Barb on October 24, 2014
  • I got interested in modern designs when I got bored with too much symmetry. Definitely like to take a swim, water and fabric.

    —Sue on October 24, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe, but I’m loving modern quilting. The colors and patterns draw you in so I’m getting ready to take a swim.

    —Chris F. on October 24, 2014
  • Just dipped a toe, but my interests are wide and varied so I try lots of different things and looks.

    —Dar on October 24, 2014
  • I am splashing about, happily. My own "style" seems to vary greatly, depending on the pattern or fabric I fell in love with, the person for whom the quilt is intended, or the feeling I want to convey. But I find the modern aesthetic informing even the most traditional quilts as I consider the spaciousness I want the quilt to have, or whether a border is as necessary as I once thought it to be.

    —Beth T. on October 24, 2014
  • I’ve dipped a toe and am hooked!

    —Donna V. on October 24, 2014
  • I would say I’ve edged up to the water and I’m considering dipping a toe. I’m new to quilting in general and just done a few basics. These quilts are gorgeous and I think I’m going to dip that toe soon!!

    —Natalie F on October 24, 2014
  • I’d say I’m a toe dipper but I love the patterns for the larger prints….they really grab me.

    Smiles,
    Kelly

    Kelly Jackson on October 24, 2014
  • I have only dipped my toe in so far. But am signing up for some swimming lessons, so that I take a swim, and maybe someday own the pool.

    —Donna W on October 24, 2014
  • I have made a few lap quilts, so would say I’ve ‘dipped my toe’ in. I struggle with finding the right color palette that pleases me and works for the designs.These look like great books to help out!

    —Anne on October 24, 2014
  • I have "dipped a toe" into this method of quilting and am thinking of jumping right in the pool.
    Would love to get a head start with the neutral collection and the book of neutrals from Amy.

    —Arlene on October 24, 2014
  • I am clearly swimming in the deep end of the pool! I have done all kinds of quilting, everything from the standard log cabins, to quilts that tell a story, to tesselated fish!

    —rj gosnell on October 24, 2014
  • I’ve definitely "dipped a toe" into the modern pool as I have only made one quilt in that style. Would love to make another and the chance to win the gorgeous fabric would definitely make that happen!

    —Debbie on October 24, 2014
  • I took a swim and must have the pool now!

    —Bianca on October 24, 2014
  • I made one "modern" quilt years ago as a present. It was made of solid rectangles that decreased in length and width from one corner to the other.

    —Kathy Gant on October 24, 2014
  • I would say I have "dipped a toe in" to modern quilts. I have made a couple of quilts that are slightly modern. They came out nice but made more with the recipient in mind than my automatic taste.

    —Sherril M. on October 24, 2014
  • I’m still on the outside looking in and admiring.

    —Vickie Graveline on October 24, 2014
  • I have taken a swim!! I like the modern patterns but still like the traditional patterns done with modern fabric.

    —Sherry Fram on October 24, 2014
  • I think that I have dipped a toe in. Modern fabrics but nothing truly "modern."

    —Vivian on October 24, 2014
  • Getting ready to dip a toe.

    Lynn Merrow on October 24, 2014
  • I am dipping all toes! Learning a lot and loving it. I love giving traditional blocks a modern twist, pretty new colors, but still anchored in our roots of quilting that unite us as women for centuries.
    Love this contest, thank you!

    Cathy Slabaugh on October 24, 2014
  • I am drawn to the modern quilts and have dipped my toes. I’m ready to plunge in and take a swim!

    —Dee on October 24, 2014
  • I have looked at the water. I have only made two quilts thus far and neither were particularly modern. I would live to make one!

    —Jackie on October 24, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe in. I love to see and create but don’t know where to start with color and pattern.

    —amanda on October 24, 2014
  • I’ve only looked and imagined so far but see some interesting ideas in these books so am ready to give modern quilts a try.

    —Glenna D. on October 24, 2014
  • I have not even dipped a toe into modern quilting; so would love to win this bundle and use it to make my very first one. Those are some great patterns!

    —Nancy on October 24, 2014
  • I’m still standing at the water’s edge, waiting to take the plunge. I find more and more that the use of gray as the neutral in modern quilts is catching my eye. Just looking for the one that will inspire me to do more than dip my toes.

    —Juanita Woodard on October 24, 2014
  • I can’t even say dipped a toe. I am a new quilter (squares and rectangles and straight sewing). Maybe these book and the fabrics will help me dip my toes. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Virginia Bronner on October 24, 2014
  • Dipped a toe — I love monochromatic and neutral designs.

    —Sandy on October 24, 2014
  • I want to learn how to be a strong swimmer not a so so water baby.

    —maryann on October 24, 2014
  • I love the clear, clean lines. I haven’t done much as yet. Still looking. Love the neutral book!

    —Maryanne Wilson on October 24, 2014
  • I have just begun to dip my toes in the modern ‘pool’. So many options now with the great solids available.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway,
    Jacqueline in Pitt Meadows

    Jacqueline VH on October 24, 2014
  • Just dipped a toe!

    —Mary Ann on October 24, 2014
  • So far, just dipped a toe, a little shy, learning to swim. The modern quilts are crisp and lovely, the fabrics compelling. Would love to win and colorplay with them.

    —Lydia on October 24, 2014
  • I am still in the toe dipping stage but am looking forward to learning to swim.

    —Nancy Angerer on October 24, 2014
  • I would have to say I have only dipped a toe. I have not really caught on to the Modern Style of quilting. I am wanting to make a quilt for my teenage granddaughter so I think I will be making a modern quilt for her. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Renea on October 24, 2014
  • I have just begun to dip my toes in. Thanks for a chance to win.

    —Elaine H. on October 24, 2014
  • Dipped my little toe, but I will get there, thanks

    —barbara woods on October 24, 2014
  • Thinking about dipping a toe, intrigued.

    —Anne on October 24, 2014
  • Hardly even got wet, yet. I am a late adaptor so it takes me time to join any new trend.

    —Linda on October 24, 2014
  • I am new at Modern Quilting, so I would say I have just dipped a toe into this genre.

    —Darrell Hardenburg on October 24, 2014
  • I have barely dipped my toes as a fairly new quilter. I usually pick bold bright colors but the neutrals shown here is so tempting! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Rhonda Davis on October 24, 2014
  • I am a beginning quilter and it is the modern quilts that have inspired me.

    —Cheryl on October 24, 2014
  • Well, I guess that I could be called a toe dipper. I love modern quilts and fabrics. I would love to win these fabrics and use them in a modern quilt. Got my fingers crossed.

    —Doris Worthen on October 24, 2014

  • A made a modern quilt for my niece’s 21st but would love to make more:)

    —Sue on October 24, 2014
  • Dipped a toe – love the crisp colors in the modern fabrics with white. Thx.

    —Debbie on October 25, 2014
  • I am just starting the more modern look, and I love it, as do my girls!

    —Sue on October 25, 2014
  • Definitely "toe dipper," but then I’m not that experienced with traditional quilting either. I’m more of an art quilter, but would still like to add fabric to my stash!!!

    —Sally Maxwell on October 25, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper in modern quilts.

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on October 25, 2014
  • I have dipped a toe, as a new quilter I am hoping to learn more and the fabric give away will truely help

    —Sonja mclane on October 25, 2014
  • I’m getting closer to dipping my toes in the water. Fabric and pattern are chosen after much time and deliberation, now I need to start the work. I love the simple and clean look of many modern quilts and the fabric give-away would be inspiring as well. Thanks!

    —Carolyn on October 25, 2014
  • More and more, I am really liking what I am seeing with the Modern quilt movement! Might just be time to jump in!

    —Diane on October 25, 2014
  • Sew many quilts, sew little time. I am a baby toe dipper, but I am working on getting a bit farther into the pool.Looking forward to learning and trying new ideas.

    —Mary Ann McG on October 25, 2014
  • I’ve done quite a bit of modern quilting, and been a member of the MQG since the beginning … Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

    —Paula on October 25, 2014
  • I have definitely taken a swim. Love the freedom and the movement.

    —Nancy on October 25, 2014
  • Hi, I’m still a "toe dipper", I like the one I put together without a pattern and call it my modern quilt–and I want to do more.
    cheers

    —Carol on October 25, 2014
  • I cannot say that I have dipped much of a toe into the quilting pool having only finished a few projects. Planning to concentrate on quilting and sewing more in future. Like the look of the Modern Basics and Modern Basics II to get me on my way.

    —ruby t on October 25, 2014
  • I am approaching the pool. I used to think modern quilts were ugly – mostly giant gray squares. I don’t know if the genre has improved or if my taste is evolving, but now I see soft colors and elegant simplicity in modern quilts. I would like to make one soon.

    —Kathy Renz on October 25, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe in modern quilting. Do love the simplicity of design.

    —teri c on October 25, 2014
  • haven’t dipped a toe yet but it is coming soon

    sherry on October 25, 2014
  • I dipped a toe for my daughter with snazzy rectangles scattered bright embroidered leaves and a free motion frenzy. Looks great as a couch throw/ snuggle tv quilt.

    —Caroline Young on October 25, 2014
  • I’ve taken a swim…but I’m still dog paddling. I find the fabrics and designs to be very exciting. Love the fabric bundle and the books in this post. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Pearl on October 25, 2014
  • The quilts all look so wonderful I can’t decide which one I’d like first. The fabrics are gorgeous. I’d love to win!

    —Just J on October 25, 2014
  • Just starting to dip my toes– new and excited about quilting.

    —Jen on October 25, 2014
  • I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t like quilts until I started seeing the modern ones. Now I’m in love with them. Definitely taking a swim.

    —Sue C on October 26, 2014
  • I feel like I have only dipped my toes! I love the look of these quilts – particularly ‘Modern Maze’.

    Jeneta@PlumJam on October 26, 2014
  • I’d have to say I’ve dipped a toe in a few times, not jumped in or gone swimming, but keep dipping in every so often.

    —Madeline on October 26, 2014
  • I have been quilting for over 45 years and I love the modern quilt designs, I love the clean simplicity of the designs. I have been a fan of Amy’s work for quite a while!!! I would dearly love this fabric line!

    Karen M on October 26, 2014
  • I’ve made one "modern" quilt and can’t wait to make more! Love how the use of white sets off the colors!

    Jenifer MacFarland on October 26, 2014
  • I have tried the Modern Quilting look, and like it just fine. Not only are the patterns and blocks clean lines but often the quilting also, making it easier for me to do the quilting myself.

    —Sherry on October 26, 2014
  • Not even sure if I’ve "dipped a toe" as I tend to be a pretty traditional quilter, but I’m willing to give it a try.

    Laura B on October 26, 2014
  • While in college, we had to create a modern painting. I thought I was back in the 3rd grade when I created my little to big boxes, drawn diagonally down and across my canvas. Some of the modern quilts of today make no sense to me, but I’m not the designer and beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Amy Elis brings us into focus how beauty can be made in a Modern Quilt, and I love her Circuit Board pattern, and would love to have this book and the FQ bundle.

    Keep smiling,

    Lynnita Shipman on October 26, 2014
  • I have begun with a few baby quilts and wall hangings…love the crisp ,calm feel of them

    —Lorri on October 26, 2014
  • If a ‘modern quilt’ is made using one block pattern I guess I’ve swam the length of the pond. I just finished a queen sized quilt for a wedding gift made using just one block pattern and two colors. It was my first quilt. I am a new quilter. Am wondering what to put on my cutting table next. Maybe the "Modern Maze".

    —Charlotte on October 26, 2014
  • Since I’m a beginner my status would only be "dipped a toe"

    —Carmen N on October 26, 2014
  • Swimming, but not always successfully.

    —Cindy on October 26, 2014
  • I’m taking a swim but sticking to the shallow end. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Sarah on October 26, 2014

    —Shirley on October 26, 2014
  • I have taken a swim and recently joined the Modern Quilt Guild.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Marilyn on October 26, 2014
  • I have only dipped my toes in the water. It was pretty nice. Really like the quilt on the cover of Modern Neutrals. Thanks for the chance to win

    —DebV on October 26, 2014
  • I’m attracted to modern takes on traditional quilts, but would have to say I’ve only taken a dip so far.

    —Nancy Lanier on October 26, 2014
  • I’ve taken a swim. Member of the MQG, made a mini modern and lap sized modern quilt, and I’m heading to Austin for Quilt Con!

    —Mary on October 27, 2014
  • I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date,but at 82, I have jumped out of the box with a wild-print artist and made a wall hanging.

    Donna on October 27, 2014
  • I am a toe dipper wanting to jump it, I could really use the fabric bundle and book. I have recently had to quick working as a nurse at 38 yes old and am quilting to help keep myself moving. My lower body can’t do much more. I pray you choose me for this bundle. Thank you

  • I am a new quilter and would love jump on in to modern quilting

    —Sonja Mclane on October 27, 2014
  • I’ve only done modern quilts so far – the simpler the better for me since I’m also still honing my sewing skills. I have a normal (smallish actually) sewing machine and managed to work thru both a crib quilt and a twin quilt for my kids. I have another twin quilt in the works and two more crib quilts. All using jelly rolls and sticking with a straight line style.

    Lindsay on October 27, 2014
  • I’ve just dipped a toe, but the modern quilts are really starting to grow on me.

    —Mary on October 27, 2014
  • I have only dipped a toe in quilting in general. But I think all quilts are beautiful and definitely want to try some modern patterns!

    —June on October 27, 2014
  • I’ve only dipped a toe, but feel confident of any new modern quilts I start. I love the modern quilt patterns and love how they look after finishing. Thanks for the chance to win this giveaway to use on my next modern quilt.
