One of the books C&T sent to me recently is Quilt Modern Curves & Bold Stripes, by Heather Black and Daisy Aschenhoug. I found the quilts in this book to be new and interesting, not just a repeat of what I’ve seen elsewhere..
There are 15 projects in the book, all including curves and stripes, and I would be happy to make all of them! The one I just HAD to make first, however, is called “Tidbits”:
The directions for the quilts offer the option of making your own strip sets or using striped fabric.. I used some fun striped fabric I had in stash.
As was the case with the last C&T book I used, the instructions were clear and complete. For the Tidbits block it is important to keep track of the way stripes are oriented, and there are tips on how to do that.
The book includes templates to trace for each of the quilts, though it would be possible to use curved templates you have on hand if you don’t mind modifying the designs slightly.
I want to make this one next:
BTW, go to the C&T website and sign up for their newsletter That way you’ll know when they’re having a SALE!

OK, more eye candy from the book.:
I just love these fresh, modern designs! Which one do you want to make?
