A few weeks ago, I was offered the chance to review an eBook of Log Cabin block patterns. I passed on the chance because I was just busy with other things. (Of course, lover of Log Cabin blocks that I am, I now regret this.) But I guess I didn’t totally lose my chance because I was contacted recently to review a short eBook by McCall’s Quilting and McCall’s Quick Quilts called Modern Quilt Patterns. This time I figured I might have a bit of time to look at it, so I said yes. (It’s a free book, for pete’s sake!)
This is a short book. It contains three patterns, two of which I will probably try soon (after the wedding quilt is pieced, of course.) The first quilt, Baubles and Beads, is a very clean, fresh looking quilt. It is a beginner skill level quilt and could easily be made from stray (or left over) 2 1/2 inch strips from jelly rolls. I love the freshness of it.
The second quilt, Rainbow Rhythms, is rated as a confident beginner level pattern. It could easily be made with a few charm squares from various charm packs, as it calls for many 5 inch squares in its construction.
The third quilt, Lemon Squeezy, is rated as beginner level pattern. It is an interesting type of quilt as you go pattern, which seems to include large string piecing.
McCall’s has this eBook and several more available for free on their website. You can get your own copy of Modern Quilt Patterns by clinking on the title.
