I love the one that looks like stacked books. Can't believe I am the first to comment!!
I don't know if I can choose a favorite, but I would love to have the book because I saw it in person recently (either at JoAnn's or Barnes and Noble, can't remember which, but hey either one is a big deal!) and it is GORGEOUS! Each quilt is a true work of art and the book brings them all together beautifully!
I love all quilts, but the most the last one presented on photo with all quilts (little squares on white background).
I like the idea for this book - it makes it unusual!
I haven't had a chance to actually look through the book in real life so I'm probably missing out on some, but I love the one with spots all over it, and the colours in yours - I'm such a sucker for red and aqua! I also love the music on the video - perfection. :)
Love the hexie quilt! This looks to be full of great inspiration, which I could use right now!
I love the circle dresden plate quilt. I couldn't work out if that was called profit margins, or if that was the cover. Anyhow it is my favourite. The hexagon one is pretty awesome too, I'm into hexagons at the moment. Congratulations on a terrific looking book.
Very cool! I loved the video and now can't wait to see the book!
I always love Log Cabin quilts :)
Yesterday's blog host mentioned that the book is a guideline to making own quilt designs. I guess that is why I like this book (I did not know this before).
I love the confetti quilt. Thanks for the chance to win what looks like a really awesome book!
Pick just one? that's hard. I like the one that looks like stacked books. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!
I really like the colors in the second quilt that is shown in the video. Hard to choose though!
Gosh, all the quilts look awesome in that video and I am sure the book is wonderful. I do love red and turquoise one and the one with dots. Thanks for the chance to win our own book! Blessings!
I love that string quilt in the picnic photo. I like the variety of tan solids with the cool colors.
I love the confetti quilt! I just love how less is more.
Hard to choose just one -- I'd have to say the white one with the scattered colored bits personifies "modern" for me but I also liked the stacked books and the twisted dresdens as a fresh take on traditional.
I'm really looking forward to getting this book as a summer quilt book read!
I don't want to spoil the book by seeing all the quilts ahead of time, lol, but I'd love to win a copy to get a chance to see all of the inspiring ideas up close. Thanks Jacquie!
I agree with those that said it was hard to choose a favorite, but i think it would be the grey circle quilt, or the X quilt, or the on that you did! See? I told you I couldn't choose!
I would like to have the book because I like to read about the process and this seems to be a more intuitive book.
Oooooh! I hadn't seen this gray and yellow picnic quilt before! Love it! (I have a gray and yellow quilt in my near future...I feel it coming. Can't wait to see this book in person! Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win!
My favorite is the triangle quilt. I'd love to make it in blues and greens. Beautiful!
I can't believe it! I'm the queen in a bee coming up and I have been envisioning a wonky stacked coin quilt and there it is! I love that one!
I love the one used as a picnic blanket! The triangle-to-squares are great!
I love the picnic blanket one pictured here.
Congrats on the book :)
I love the quilt with purple violet and orange circles on a gray background.
Great book! I think I like the scrappy circles best, although the little video has the quilts flying by so fast it is hard to decide! Thanks for giving a way a copy!
I think all the quilts are gorgeous but I love the gray one with the colorful circles on it and I love your aqua and red one too! What a lot of fun options!
I would love a copy of this book. I want to make a contemporary quilt, and this book would be perfect in deciding how and what that quilt will be.
I've only seen snippets of this book online and I'm loving what I've seen. So original! Love the Wonky Roman Stripe Quilt.
This book looks so awesome and all the sneaks this week have been so inspiring. I already start pulling fabric for 2 different ideas.
Thanks so much
I'd like to form my own bee group and this is just perfect for me to use. I'd try all of the quilts beginning with the easiest to challenging. Thanks!
Great looking book....at least from the video! I'd love to make several of the quilts in the book, starting with yours! I also love the circles quilt.
All along this hop I've been partial to the last one that looks like confetti on white.
However, every one of them would be fun to make.
Thx for the chance to win.
I promise I'm not just saying this because this is your stop in the blog tour, but I love Profit Margins the best! Love the colours, love the white background for the circles, and love they are tilted. Would really love to win a copy of the book, thanks so much for the chance!
I like the confetti quilt and would love to have this as my first quilt book!
I am absolutely in love with the dresden quilt, Profit Margins. It's the perfect mix of vintage and modern!
I watched the video about the book & fell in love with it. Thanks for the giveaway.
Really like the flag quilt ~ simple with lots of color!
thanks for the giveaway, would love to 'win' the book!
I would love to have a copy of this book, because ALL of the quilts are gorgeous, and I would love to try to make them myself! :) Thanks for the opportunity to win!
I want this book, I need this book
I want to be lucky today - please pick me !
I like the quilt with the circles best. Would love to win. Thanks.
my favorite is the string quilt on your post here!
Oh, I love the quilt with the white background and colorful confetti! And this picnic quilt you posted? Gorgeous too!
The book looks like it is just full of inspiration! I love the Hexie quilt and am drawn to the 9-patch with the dark sashing. I would be thrilled to win the book!
It's so hard to choose a favorite...do I have to?
I love the hexie quilt - especially with the free floating hexies...not all tied up in a flower! I love the white quilt with the small squares of color. I love the wonky log cabin...and of course, I love yours!
Congrats to you all!
I really love the red and aqua dresdenish quilt.
Looks like a great book. I like them all, but my favourite is the one with the orange and black (guitar in picture)
So hard to choose but I think my favorite is the dresden plate one. Anything aqua and blue and when it's paired up with this pattern it looks fantastic!
The video gives a great impression! Love how the photos move to the rhythm of the music.
I love the Dresden Plate quilt. Great fabric choice!
Thank you for the chance to win the book (o:
Following this book tour religiously! I would so love to win a copy, all the quilts look so fresh and lovely.
I think my fave is the red and aqua dresden plate love the colors. Would love to win a copy, thanks for the giveaway.
Love the polka dot modern dresden...so fresh looking... Would love to win a copy..and try to get my MoJo back...
The video clip was pretty fast so I'm not completely sure which one was my fav. I liked the one with cherry red colours, but the hexagon one was great too. Please don't ask me to choose it's just too hard.
I love everything about the hexagon quilt in this book.
From the sneak peeks that I have seen so far I like Confetti Block by Megan Risse and your quilt (I love circles in any form!) the best so far.
I love your Profit Margins quilt! I also really like the diagonal blocks picnic quilt..not sure the name of that one, but it's on my list to make!
I love so many quilts in this book. My favorite is Party of Twelve.
So glad you posted the video. My favorite is the quilt with the circles. My daughter wants to make a quilt for her bed and enter it in the fair (which is 4 weeks away) and she keeps changing her mind. But it I think that circle quilt will fit her fancy!!
I LOVE the white one with all the little squares! So pretty. Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous book.
It is the perfect summertime reading, planning rainy day sewing.
I love the Dresden Plate quilt! Beautiful!
love the dotted dresdens, so fresh and happy, thanks for the chance
I like them all!
I'm new to quilting so this book would be great to have! Thanks for the chance!
I really can't choose one favourite but I do like dresden plates. I'd love a copy for the inspiration. Sometimes one gets into a rut with their quilt making and so this book would be a wonderful boost for me. Thank you for the chance to win.
Well, since my speakers aren't working, I don't know what it's called, but from the other comments, I think it's "dotted dresdens". They are all gorgeous, though.
Not to be a kiss up or anything, but I really do want to try Profit Margins!
Awesome book. Thanks for the chance!
I hadn't seen a picture of that triangle one before and I really like that one! steeplechaser29(at) yahoo (dot) com
I love all the quilts but if I had to pick one it would your Profit Margin quilt...ab fab!
My favorite is Party of Twelve - just love all the white. And, since my NEW sewing machine is on its way to me, I could definately use this book!! Thanks for the giveaway!
I like the hexagon one - mostly because I've never done them and they mystify me. Maybe I should tackle that....
i love the red and aqua. pick me!
I would love a copy!! I've learned that having books on hand when quilting or wanting to know the "right" way of doing something, it's wonderful to use them as a tool! :) Plus, it looks like a GREAT book!
I love the scrappy X strips quilt!
I love the circles and the pops of red!!
stormanen [at] gmail [dot] com
i like the one that look like xs made from stacked coins? I love the color choices in all of them!! :)
It's so hard to pick a favorite! I guess I would have to say the string quilt and the sprinkle of hexagons are my top two...but i do love them all! This looks like a wonderful book!!!
I'm a fan of the bloggers who contributed, so it's only right that I'd love this book!
Love the book. So many modern ideas.
I can't decide on just one quilt to love, but I would like to win the book for new inspiration. What a great book! Thanks!
So many great patterns to try. What a good book.
I want to make the polka dot looking one!
I don't really have a favorite - they are all beautiful! I want a copy of the book because I feel like I know all the bloggers who are in it - I've been reading your blogs and drooling over your quilts for a long time!
thanks for the chance to win...
caribousmom (at) gmail (dot) com
Very tricky to pick just one. I think my favourite is the circles on gray. The colours are girly but not too over the top :-)
I like Falling to pieces (April)
i love the confetti quilt in the book! Lots of pretty ones in there!
Oh I love the Quilt shown as a picnik quilt.
Not sure what it is called but I like the one with the brown background and what looks like stacked books. And the book looks incredible!
It would be hard to pick a favorite because i love all of them and i am especially loving the colors!!!! fingers crossed for this lovely book!! THanks!
I am always looking for new projects to try! I would love to have this book.
I am in LOVE with the wonky Roman strip quilt! It's the perfect picnic quilt. There's so many quilts in this book that I'd like to make.
I love that picnic quilt! Can't wait to get my hands on this book.
I love the circles one and would love to learn more about the quilters and their designs. Thanks for the giveaway.
I am going to go with the dresden being my favorite! I would really love to win this book!
I think that I love all of the quilts. However, "profit margin" has the colors that speak to me most at this moment.
I'd love a copy of the book so I can make some amazing quilts!
I love the confetti quilt and yours and quite honetly all of them. I would love to learn more about the process of the designing of these quilts -- therefore, I would love to win a copy of this book! Thanks for the chance!
I love the aqua and red dresden plates. Soooo beautiful. Modern yet vintagey feel. I'd love to win the book for inspiration!
I'm not sure I could pick just one! All the quilts in the video are inspiring! I can see many new skills (for me) hiding in their production. I can't wait to get my hands on this one!
This book looks like it is filled with so many goodies!
The confetti quilt and the Stacked books...I love the simple style of most of the quilts in the book. It looks lovely, thanks for the chance to win it.
I would love to start a collaborative sewing project, and this book would be the perfect way to begin.
My fave is definitely the Wonky Roman Stripe because the colors reminds me of the beach. A place I'd really like to be right now instead of landlocked in Colorado.
I have some very crafty friends, and would love to use this book as a jumping off point for our own "block party!" Thanks for the opportunity!
Your quilt is my favorite, of course!
It's way too hard to pick a favourite! I want to make at least half of the quilts in this book, and the other half have my mind racing with ideas for variations. But if I had to pick, it's a tie between yours and the hexagon quilt.
Hexagons! I would love to try out a hexagon quilt. I am embarrassed to say my very first attempt at quilting was a hexagon quilt - sooo stupid! What a disaster. I'd like to try again, though! :)
bethany0728 at gmail dot comm
I just love the Confetti block by Megan...it has so many possibilities and such freedom for expression. I would love the book, thanks for the chance to win.
My favorite that I've seen so far is the Confetti Blocks one that I saw on another sneak peek, but I really love ALL of them! It looks like an amazing book!
The wonky Roman strip quilt... I'm in love with that one right off the batt, but there are others, oh yes...! I would love to own this book. The concept of turning virtual bee efforts into a book is amazing!
I like the quilt with all the warm colored wonky stripes!
I love the hexagon and circle quilts. Thanks for the fabulous giveaway and loved the video.
The hexagon and confetti quilts stand out to me, I think because of all that white space (which I usually don't do in my own quilts). But they're all totally something I'd try! Love this book.
I desperately want to make the hexagon quilt! I LOVE the design & fabrics used! Thanks!
The quilts in this book are wonderful, and I can imagine myself making every one of them! How rare is that? Lovely book!
I liked the blue half log cabin.
Thanks Jacquie! I'd love a copy - I'm following the tour, because I want to donate one to my traditional guild's library. I'm trying to encourage some more modern-style quilting and helping by stocking the library with fresh ideas!
I love all of these quilts...so modern and fresh! My two faves are the green and gray 9 patch and the Dresden quilt...I'm having a love affair with Dresdens lately! Thanks for the chance - awesome book!
I would love this book because although I have a lot of books about traditional quilting (thanks, Mom), I really like the new, modern, takes on some of those classics.
My favorite is the quilt right on the cover (grey, orange and blue)! Thanks for the giveaway!
bruinbr at gmail dot com
Thanks for the chance!
I have friends who own this book and already love it. I hope I win!
I love the log cabin-those are my favorite colors! This book is super awesome-long live the quilting bee!
it's definitely hard to pick a favorite... but i do like the picnic one you have pictured and i'm intrigued by the one with the circles! and am definitely a fan of all the contriubuters!
OOOOOOOOOO...love them all but the hexie has to be my fav! Oh the quilts I could make! Thanx for the chance!
would love to win a copy of this book!
I love the circle one. It looks like reverse applique maybe...
I'm a fan of log cabin quilts, so I'd have to go with that one!
I`d like to win a copy of this magnificent book, because I want to learn to sew quilts like these by myself. And it`s interesting to read how to organize a bee. I never took part of one yet. It`s hard to say which quilt I like best. There are some favourites...
But anyway whether I win or not I think I gonna buy the book when the Block Party finished. Thanks for the chance,
LOVE all the quilts! My favorite, Profit Margins. I've never tried a dresden quilt. This will for sure be my first. Love the red and aqua fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway!
I'm not a 'modern' type gal, but love the circle dresden.
I luv books and these are all just so fresh and different. Such great incentive to do ones own thing. Wonderful
I want the book because it's intuitive. I love reading about what inspires people.
My favorite is the one that looks like confetti. Thanks for the giveaway!
Thanks for the giveaway! I'm hoping if I enter every day of the blog tour, I'll get increase my odds of getting lucky! :) I think they are all neat, but I think my favorite is the one with the big x and diamond made out of pieced strips...not sure whose it is or what is called yet...that's why I need the book! Not sure if I've mentioned it in other comments, but I really love your blog. I just got some kona in pepper, snow, lapis, and some other blues to play with the improvised log cabins, because I can't get that picture on your blog out of my head! :)
Oh This would be AWESOME to have! I haven't seen the book out anywhere yet but it is a must! I love the one with the green colored stacks....LOVE IT! If I had this book my kids would be picking out their new quilt pattern for sure! They like looking through the patterns and our youngest son picks ALL of them for him. LOL ;)
Thanks for the chance.
I can't tell you how much I would appreciate it if I won this book!! The book looks totally inspirational:)
I would love to win this book! thanks for the chance.
Profit Margins! (and not just because it's the one you made). I have never tried that technique before and would love to try something new.
I love so many of those blocks. Thanks for the chance to win. jjjcwebb [at] hotmail [dot] com
I actually like your quilt, profit margins the best! I'm always drawn to those colors and I think the blocks with the red background really make the quilt.
I like the one with the picnic basket, that you've included in your post. I love the muted colors.
WoW!! So many nice quilts to choose from. I think I like the gray squares with the circles, the white one with the floating color bits and the log cabin-like quilt. Sorry, that's more than one.... :)
We were discussing this book in our Modern Quilt Guild meeting on Saturday!
Wow, these quilts are so beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win!
I like the dots the dresdens and the strips. Great book thanks for the chance to win.
Can I say my top three?? I love yours (and I'm not just saying that because this is your blog :) ), Confetti (I think that's the name??) and the gray one with the circles on it. I would LOVE a copy of this book for inspiration and to see about organizing/participating in a virtual bee.
I had a copy in my hot little hands afew weeks ago in Minneapolis and I didn't buy it because I didn't want to use a credit card to do it!
I love Kristen's quilt, and the colors of Profit Margins definitely speak to me.
I love the quarter log cabins in various sizes(I think it is Nettie's quilt?). Such a fun book and unique concept. Thanks for highlighting it and for the chance to win!
Each blog stop on this book tour just makes me want this book more and more. The quilts are gorgeous and I can see my mother/I having our own Block party following along with the book. Thanks for the opportunity.
p.s. I've read your blog for quite a while and enjoy reading your perspectives on quilting.
favorites are so hard. too hard. I really like the grey one with half kites.
But I really really like lots of them!
i LOVE this! thanks for a chance to win!!
My favorite is the 3rd from left (9-patch) quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.
I like the half-string-pieced triangle squares. Perfect for scraps + upcoming wedding gifts!
I really love that last one w/ the diagonal strips on the grey background... I can't find the name of it anywhere.
Your quilt quickly made it to the top of my list! So striking!
chancyf (at) gmail (d0t) com
Love all these quilts; I think the last one is really great! Thanks for the chance to win.
Don't make me do it!! I just can't pick one, they are all my favourites, but I do have a sudden urge to go and make me some of those Dresden Plates - especially with red background. Love them all, well done.
love these quilts! looks like an awesome book.
Don't know the name of it, but I am a bookoholic so I really love the one that looks like stacks of books. Congratulations for being a part of the book and thanks for the chance to win!
I'm having a love affair w/ dresden plates at the moment - love the bright snappy color combo. What a cool book!
I really like the "stack of books" quilt - it's modern, has a sense of humor, and would be great for a guy or a girl (since I have both in kids and grandkids!)
I'm feeling lucky :) I love all the quilts in the book!!
I really like the scrappy log cabin quilt.
All of the quilts are so great...it's hard to pick a favorite. I really love the one with the tiny rectangles on the white background. tarapage22(at)gmail(dot)com
I think all the quilts are fantastic and my favorite is the Confetti quilt. (Maybe I'll be the lucky one today on my anniversary!)
what a great book. Thanks for the opportunity
Beautiful! I requested our library order this book lkasap...
Jacquie ~ YOUR quilt is the one I've been drooling over each time I've seen that posted during the tour. It is one of the biggest reasons for me wanting the book among others of course. Obviously, as everyone else is, I'm hoping to win my own copy but, will buy one if I am not lucky enough. Thank you for the chance to win a copy and for making such a gorgeous quilt too.
Wonderful! I'd love to own this book!
I have been waiting eagerly for this book to come out! I love the stacked coins/books.
This book looks so beautiful. I think that of the designs I've seen, the confetti is my favourite.
The stacked books one is my fave, closely followed by confetti.
Hope international entrants are allowed!?
Okay, I have three- (well, twelve really) but three- the confetti, the stacked books and the gray one with little triangles. I had to watch the video with a sleeping babe on my lap (= no sound) so I don't know if that last one has a real name. :)
I would have to say yours is my favorite ... I am really into that sort of red, white and aqua color palette right now. I also love what is on the cover of the book too. Thanks for the chance to win!
Hugs, Sara :)
thesplitstitch (at) live (dot) com
Profit margins is hands down my favorite. Red & Blue is my favorite color combo right now! Definitely buying a copy of this book, if I don't win one...I follow all your blogs & I'm so excited to see this come together :)
I can't decide between the grey one with the little triangles or the white one with the little squares. But, I really like them all and would love to win the book :)
I'd love to have a copy of the book because so far I haven't seen one I wouldn't love to try.
Your quilt, Profit Margins, is a favorite!! Love the colours. Thanks for the chance!
I love all the quilts but if I have to pic my fave it would be the one with the little squares of color on the white background. thanks for the chance to win.
From what I've seen so far, the hexagon quilt is lovely. Thanks for this giveaway!
My favortie would have to be Profit Margins. I like the circles and the colors...beautiful!
The book looks like it would be so inspiring...clean, modern, beautiful quilts!
christinacreating AT yahoo DOT com
I love the one you did mainly because I'm more of a traditional quilt person and just love that pattern. Also, the one that looks like stacked books since I love to read.
red and aqua because I love those colors together and I haven't tried a Dresden Plate design!
I think your red and aqua quilt is genius. I am pretty crazy about it!
I love the hexi one and looking forward to making it.
arquilters (at) gmail (dot) com
I love the grey triangle quilt. thanx for the chance!
I'd love to quilt my way through the book!
I love the quilt with the circles and I also love the dresden plate.
So hard to choose a favourite when they are all fabulous! I do love the wonky triangles and colour scheme of the 'Falling to Pieces' quilt.
I like yours and the polka dot quilt. I am prepping to learn circles. I am a bit nervous.
I am loving the hexagon one. Thanks
So excited for this book! I love the fresh look of all the quilts I've seen so far. I only hope I can make some look as good!
Cool video! I especially like the one with X's and O's.
I like the last one, the white with blocks of color!
I really like the Dresden pattern, and since I've seen three of you in person (participants in the original Bee), I would love to have the book. Thanks! Lauren
