The Modern Medallion Workbook
I'll be posting more about this book,The Modern Medallion Workbook: 11 Quilt Projects to Make, Mix & Match, that I co-authored with Janice from better off thread next week but I just wanted to let you know that the publisher, C&T/Stash, is having giveaways for copies of the book on the contributor's blogs (hard copy for U.S., digital copies for everywhere else.) The giveaways that are currently open are listed below; I'll update with the full schedule on Monday.

I'm excited to share more about the book next week - it wasn't easy keeping this "secret" for the past 1 1/2 years. The contributor's quilts are gorgeous and really range in both style and complexity. Plus, in addition to the 11 quilt patterns, the workbook includes full coloring pages (line drawings) of each quilt to help you plan your version and detailed technical instruction for some of the more commonly used techniques in the patterns such as flying geese, paper piecing, and curves. But I think one of my favorite parts of this book is the chapter on how to use the patterns and techniques in the book to design your own unique medallion quilt. Well, I'll tell you more about it in my post on Monday -- plus by then the contributor's will have each shared more about their quilts so I'll be sure to include links to their posts so you can learn more about their process.
