Modern Country Girl…

Make that Country Girl Modern.

Country-Girl-Modern

This book – 11 Modern-Traditional Quilts from the Junction.  Petticoat Junction?  Nope.  Iowa.  Jo’s Country Junction – Jo Kramer.  Jo and her daughter Kelli – Kelli Hanken – have been making and designing quilts for ages, and they’ve finally published a book of quilts “inspired by country air, traditional roots, and modern fun.”

We – meaning more than just me, the Carrie typing this – have known Jo and Kelli for awhile and when she asked us if we’d join the blog hop and review their book, how could we resist?  There’s a quilt in the book named “Modalicious”!

CGM---Modalicious

How much fun is that!

So here’s the review.  The quilts.  They’re terrific – a few are such that a quilting-newbie will have great success, and a couple have enough pieces that even a long-time quilt-maven will be kept busy.  Some of the quilts need yardage or fat quarters, and others will put a big dent in your scrap basket.

CGM---Bohemian-Rhapsody

This is Bohemian Rhapsody – it’s my favorite and the one that I’m itching to make with something… anything.  While it’s made with 1/2 yard cuts, I think this is one that would be great for scrap-busting.

The instructions.  They’re clear, concise and I love the “Quick Reference Chart” – that’s a genius idea.  It’s a “cheat sheet” of how many pieces / units you need to make the quilt.

CGM---Cheat-Sheet

Seriously.  This is a great idea.  (In pattern-writer-speak, that means it’s an idea absolutely worth “borrowing”.)

So have I convinced you that this is a great book and you should have one?  As your luck would have it, we can help with that last part too.  If you leave a comment here by Midnight on Sunday, March 15, you just might win a copy of Country Girl Modern.  Be sure to leave your e-mail address with your comment – and no, don’t put the e-mail in the comment, simply include it where and when the comment form asks for it.

Thank you to Jo and Kelli for asking us to hop with the Country Girls.  And Thanks to YOU for hopping too.

CGM---Thanks-to-You

Really.  Thanks to YOU.  (That’s the name of this quilt.)

  115. Karen says:

    Jo and Kelli were really thoughtful about how they wrote this book. Each day of this blog hop I am impressed.

  120. Mary Kastner says:

    Love the star “you” quilt and the cheat sheet idea.

    Mary

  121. susanmp14 says:

    The cheat chart is very clever and helpful. Love the quilts in the book.

  122. Lisa Marie says:

    That “cheat sheet” idea is definitely a good one. Looks like a great book, thanks for sharing!

  123. Mary Terry says:

    Pretty quilts, great bright colors, very useful cheat sheet especially for planning on how to use scraps ,

  124. Sandy M says:

    I LOVE when a pattern gives me the total amount of units I need upfront AND the size of the unit!!!. I have worked with patterns where they give me the cutting instructions and show me how to piece the block, but fail to put the unfinished measurement of the block after constructed. I know I can add up the size of the pieces I’m putting together but it’s much more reassuring to get the number upfront. Wins major points for that cheat sheet.

  125. This book is on my wish list!

  126. Carol Jensen says:

    In my second year of quilting, Moda is my fabric of choice! Combined with this awesome book, I see fun times in my sewing room!

  127. Jocelyn says:

    Jo has written a book! How cool is that! It looks great! Thanks.

  128. Janet says:

    Quick reference chart is what I need with all my patterns, I end up with to many or to few, either way it’s a pain, this would be great, oh and the quilts look super good.

  129. Carol Anne Kuse says:

    You are so right. Great quilts. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

  130. Mary says:

    Looks like a fun and inspiring book. And it looks like my list of wanna-make quilts just got longer!

    Looks like a terrific book to add to my library. Thanks for telling us all about it.

  143. Jennifer C says:

    I too think that “cheat sheet” is a fabulous idea! Finally, a place to quickly see what it is I need to make. And I’ve seen some pics of the quilts in various places–like, like, like! Been following Jo’s Country Junction blog for some time now, and just love what they do. Their recipes always sound yummy too!
