Book News! :: Modern Baby

I have been waiting a whole year to share this with you!

Please excuse all of the exclamations in this post, I am giddy with excitement!

(and be sure to read to the end, I’m giving away a quilt to celebrate!)

I am thrilled to share my contribution to the upcoming release, Modern Baby from Martingale/That Patchwork Place!

My quilt is called ‘Square Dance’ and is a baby/toddler size quilt.   It’s a fast sew that is a perfect transition blanket from crib to toddler bed to drag-around-the-house lovey.

Today was my first time getting to peek through all of the contributed quilts and I am so honored to have one of my designs among such talented and lovely people.

The book will be available in April of this year and is currently available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble,  and Shop Martingale.

This is a serious dream-come-true and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a quilt!

{GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED, winner here.}

Below is one of the samples I made and I’d love one of you to have it!

Open to all readers, US and International.   Just leave a comment.

I’ll pick a winner using on Sat. Jan 12th at noon est.

Thank you for sharing in this exciting time, I’m going to go pinch myself some more!

xo, Lindsey
