Country Girl Modern

It seems like every time I see what Jo and Kelli from Jo's Country Junction are working on, I want to abandon my own projects and get started on one for myself.  I raided the brown and red scraps from my other projects last December to make Chocolate Covered Cherries






Now they've got a book out and I'm waiting on pins and needles for the USPS to deliver my copy. 




Puddle Duck is my absolute favorite...



Followed very, very closely by May Flowers.


You can see all of the quilts in the book and order an autographed copy directly from Jo and Kelli by clicking here.

All this week, Jo and Kelli are having a blog hop, giving away a copy of the book at each stop. To enter mine, just leave a comment on this post.

Edited to add -- my winner is Sharon from Vroomans' Quilts who wrote:

Been following Jo's blog for quite some time. Would love a copy of this book.

GranChris said...

May Flowers will be a must do at some point for me. Yes I am a follower.

Kigwit said...

I love Jo's blog. She shared quite a bit of info about the quilts in this book but I think the best thing is that she also considered quilts for men/boys. It's hard, sometimes, to see a quilt and be able to visualize it for boys-the pattern may be perfect but usually quilts are shown in bright feminine colors. So it can be hard to switch them mentally. Although, my boys would probably be fine with anything!

teachpany said...

Thanks for sharing more photos! It's inspiring!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Yvonne said...

Michelle, your site, as well as Jo's, are among my daily "visits." I reviewed Jo and Kelli's book when they first shared it on their blog. I found every one of their designs to be unique and almost all of them were placed on my "to do" list!
I would consider myself blessed to receive a copy of their book.

Pat Chapman said...

Awesome designs on the quilts that we see. I am sure the book is very informative and unique. I would very much like to win this book. I am disabled and am slowly learning (teaching myself) to sew quilts and things.I believe this book would surely help me.
Good luck to all.

A Nudge said...

A big fan of Jo's. The book will be awesome, I'm sure. Please share at WIPs Be Gone so others can learn about the blog hop, Michelle. THanks for posting!
