badge for books with #creativegoodness copy

Today I’m happy to be able to share insights with you about a new book, packed with #CreativeGoodness, that is scheduled forr release February 2019 from Landauer Publishing called “Simple Quilts For The Modern Home”, by Stephanie Soebbing.



Modern quilting has bee described as the natural evolution in quilting according to The Modern Quilt Guild.  Many quilers flock to this genre because it can be a rewarding reflection of one’s own style and personality.  Even though some say it has its roots in rebellion, a set of principles is beginning to shape the concept of the modern quilt.  A new book by modern quilt expert Stephanie Soebbing shows how to create quilts tht define and guide the movement and perfectly adorn a modern home.


From “Piecing 101” to applique’ to finishing, the basic steps to create a quilt are thoroughly explained and illustrated in Soebbing’s book.  Additionally, color theory,, composition, fabric selection, and contrast to create a bold look are discussed.  Each project is an opportunity to utilize a new skill, like strip piecing, using fusible applique’, and cutting at a 45-degree angle.


Soebbing is a trail blazer in the world of modern quilting.  Whether she is designing her own patterns, teaching, working on a new podcast for her show Sit & Sew Radio, or making a new video tutorial, she is always on the creative go.  She also owns and operates where she sells fabric, thread, yardage and other supplies.

Stephanie does a great job sharing insights about the basics of quilting, tools, principles of modern quilting, creating the quilt sandwich, as well as finishing the quilts.  The 12 patterns included in this book come with well written instructions which are easy to follow and include great visuals.  Ultimately, this book is an excellent resource for new quilters, as well as quilters of any level, making it a perfect book for anyone interested in making quilts for their modern home.  It is also a very reasonably priced book, especially when you consider what the cost of this book is vs the cost of even a single standalone pattern (you get 12 delightful patterns in this book).


Simply stated, this book is truly packed with #CreativeGoodness.  I hope you get a chance to check it out at your favorite quilt shop.  As it is so new, I hope you will let them know you are interested in having them make it available, asthey simply may not even be aware of it.  Of course you can also check it out online at Landauer Publishing, as well as Amazon where you can also pre-order a copy.
