For our first "Book Nook", we've chosen Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beal.
Susan has authored or co-authored several books, and is currently the president of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild.
Susan starts the book out with a little history lesson, then goes over all of the basics that you'll need to know before you get started - choosing and preparing fabric, the tools you'll need, and even tips on organizing your stash & choosing needles. The projects are coded as to degree of difficulty, which will make it easier for you to choose one that you'll be successful at! There's a cutting key and assembly diagram for each project, which we think is a nice feature. The projects are gorgeous and include more than just quilts - there are instructions for bags, potholders, and pillows too.
We think you'll enjoy this book as much as we did, so Potter Craft is generously donating a copy for us to give away! Leave a comment here telling us why you'd like to win it. Make sure the comment also includes your first name, last name, city and state so we can find you. Deadline is Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012 at 5 pm Eastern time.
