I fell in love with the quilt on the cover of Modern Mix (Pebble Road Quilt) and was thrilled to see so many more projects in the book that I also love. Modern Mix is written with beginner to intermediate quilters in mind, author Jessica Levitt shows the basics of quilting with clear instructions and beautiful pictures and diagrams to follow.

When I first started sewing two years ago, I used lots of print fabrics because I was just amazed at the designs available. It was only after a few months that I "discovered" the amazing qualities of good, old, plain solids. What a great way to mix fabrics and bring out the uniqueness of prints.

I was quite excited when I won an e-copy of Modern Mix in a giveaway because the concept of mixing solids and prints is something I really like and try and practize in my sewing. I like the book - author

Some very creative and inspiring designs. I liked the wall file holder, the pebble quilt on the cover, the berry pillow and several other projects. Very good fabric choice and designs. I would recommend this book to more advanced sewers.

pg 39 - tote made with 9 different prints cut into stripes

pg 63 String quilt

pg 101 pillow with berry colored circles and a green vine. I really like this treatment.
Fun easy projects with a modern flair. Great technique descriptions and sewing tips. My favorite projects: her king size quilt and a darling "traffic jam" quilt for a boy.
I've never made a quilt, but if I do, I will use one of the patterns in this book. I love modern quilt designs. There are also non-blanket projects in this book.
Would make the essentials bag but the drawings look confusing, maybe if I could find an online review.
