Modern Baby Book Tour + giveaway


Today is my stop on the Modern Baby book tour, welcome!

The theme for the book tour is Modern Baby Shower and I actually just threw a baby shower for my sister.





and just 11 days later her babe was born on May 1st!   He was 4 weeks early but both mama and baby are doing well.

This is Noah.   He is teeny and so sweet!



He arrived before I could make him a quilt, ahhh!  I need to get to work!

Speaking of baby quilts, this is my design in Modern Baby.

“Square Dance”  can be found on page 66.    I was inspired to make a quilt that not only worked for a baby, but one that would grow with your child.

What I love about the book is that it’s beautifully put together and full of a diverse selection of quilts.    You are sure to find a design you like for a new baby in your life!

Martingale is offering you a chance to win an ebook copy of Modern Baby.    To be entered to win, just leave a comment.

Giveaway is open to all readers and will stay open until Friday, May 10th.

The tour ends on Tuesday, but many giveaways are still open.   Visit the other stops for a chance to win and to hear a little more about each contributors quilt.

xo, (Aunt) Lindsey 🙂
