Modern Mix Blog Tour

I told y'all it was book week here on the blog. What can I say? There are just a ton of really fabulous books all coming out in the coming weeks and months ... which is actually a really great thing, since it's almost time to start working on our Christmas lists!


I'm really happy to be sharing a sneak peek of the new book Modern Mix: 16 Sewing Projects that Combine Designer Prints & Solid Fabrics by my friend Jessica Levitt. Jessica, who blogs at Juicy Bits, is a mom, sewer, crafter, and fabric designer with two amazing collections (Timber and Kingdom) already under her belt. With the release of Modern Mix, Jessica can now add author to that list. And even though she went to Dook University, we get along pretty well. ; )


So what's Modern Mix all about? The book contains 7 quilt patterns along with other project ideas for other home decor items (like pillows), bags, fashion accessories, and other gift ideas -- 16 in total -- all with a single focus: mixing and matching prints with solids to discover new and innovative design possibilities.


The projects in Modern Mix are broken out into four distinct sections, based upon how the patterns incorporate solid fabrics:
  • Back Me Up -- projects that use solid fabrics as a background for your favorite prints
  • Strips and Stripes -- projects that add strips of solids to highlight your gorgeous prints
  • Accentuate the Positive -- projects that introduce little bits of solid colors to bring out the best in pattern
  • Steal the Show -- patterns that feature solids as the focus of the project


I've spoken with many quilters who are hesitant to mix and match fabrics across collections and selecting solid tones to help bring their projects to life. Large scale prints in particular seem to pose the biggest challenge. Within Modern Mix, in addition to a wealth of fresh, contemporary sewing patterns (and beautiful photography to match), Jessica offers her readers several design tips for pairing solids with large-scale prints.


Want to get to know Jessica a bit better? I've asked her a few (very random and silly) questions for your enjoyment!

Q: What's your favorite jam from the Billboard Top 100 of 1984?
http://eightiesclub.tripod.com/id223.htm

Wow, what a trip down memory lane. I'll answer it straight up and go with Thriller, but it may have something to do with Halloween coming up. However, this list inspired the "2 truths and a lie" below.

Q: If you could choose a single pair of Converse All-Stars to wear every single day for the next year, which color / print would you choose and why?
http://www.converse.com/?CSID=44_kwid/#/products/shoes/women

This would make me very VERY unhappy. I'm not against All-stars, I've owned a pair, and love them on my kids....but one pair of shoes for a whole year?!?! I think only a man could write that question. :)

But to play along, I'd say these leather boot-like ones fit my style the most. I'm going for the most versatile here and I could see wearing these even when more dressed up. But they would cause a problem in the summer. Guess I'd just have to go barefoot...

Q: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring 3 DVD's, which would they be?
  1. The Princess Bride
  2. Beauty and the Beast
  3. French Kiss


Kingdom FQ Giveaway!

OK, so let's talk a bit about the giveaway. Stash Books will send a copy of Modern Mix to one lucky Quilt Dad reader, to be selected randomly from those who leave a comment on this post. And to sweeten the pot, I'm throwing in a full fat quarter bundle of Jessica's newest fabric line, Kingdom.

Kingdom Courtyards Quilt

I love this line. In fact, I made a full quilt from Kingdom for Jessica to help her showcase the line at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City back in May. I designed this pattern specifically for Kingdom, and I named it Kingdom Courtyards. I was thrilled and honored to see my quilt hanging in the Windham booth!

Kingdom Courtyards Quilt

Here I am wrestling to get some good photos of the quilt on a particularly windy day here in North Carolina. Thanks to Mrs. Quilt Dad for patiently bearing with me as I tried to get the "perfect shot"!

Fighting the wind!

So want to win your very own copy of Modern Mix PLUS a full fat quarter bundle of Kingdom? Simply leave a comment on this post and answer the following question:

TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE: two of the following statements from Jessica based on the Billboard Top 100 Songs of 1984 are true, and one is a big fat stinky lie. Let me know which one you think is the untruth in the comments below, and you could win!
  1. "Self Control" - by Laura Branigan (#24) -- The first concert I ever went was Laura Branigan, and when I got home I sketched the different outfits she changed into.
  2. "The Wild Boys" - by Duran Duran (#25) --Duran Duran was my favorite boy band, and my dad finally took me to see them after I proved my love by naming and spelling correctly all the members' names.
  3. "Legs" - by ZZ Top (#65) --I dressed as the lead singer to ZZ Top (beard and all) for Halloween in 5th grade

Here's the full blog tour schedule -- many of the posts still have their giveaways open, so visit them all for more chances to win!

  2. I have no idea- I will say number 2.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I love the names of the quilts--I think Levitt must have a quirky, silly side that likes spontaneity. Thanks for the interview--keepin' it real, man! :O)
    What the heck--I'll guess #3!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Number 2 is jumping out at me. Love love love the Kingdom Courtyards quilt!

  6. The kingdom courtyard quilt is gorgeous. Makes me covet the fat quarter bundle. I'm loving the chance to win the modern mix book, and the fact it helped me find you and your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The book looks amazing and the fabrics are so rich and beautiful. I think that the second statement about Duran Duran is false.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think #3 is the stinky one. Great book, gorgeous fabric, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Love the interview...the fabric...the book...everything! I'm going to say number 2. Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think number 1 is a lie. What beautiful fabric, and what a great quilt you turned it into! :)

    Good luck, everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love the kingdom quilt you made! Add that to the list.

    I think #2 is wrong. Doesn't seem very dadish to me.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Number two doesn't make the cut...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love the quilt. The design and the fabric are a fabulous match.

    I think #2 is the lie. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I vote #3! You do so many great giveaways, I love stopping by this blog.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My name is clueless, and I so wanted to win the book and Kingdom!
    So, my guess is #2 because it is the only even number. Thanks for the tour.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Beautiful fabric! I'm going to guess 1 is the incorrect statement. Great giveaway, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wild guess here: Number 1. Thanks for the chance. (soniaquilts at gmail dot com)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I vote for Number 1, who's Laura Branigan?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hmmmm, I think the lie is Duran Duran (#2), but that is just a guess. I can't believe there top three movies! I overlap on two of them (French Kiss and The Princess Bride!). Wowee! Maybe I'll be the lucky ducky winner?!

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is a complete shot in the dark: #3 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh my, your Kingdom Courtyards quilt is gorgeous! Bravo! And i will guess #3 to be less than truthful.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would say #2 is a lie just because she is so creative I could see her doing the other two but just a guess. I love her fabric and the quilt is beyond gorgeous . Sandra

    ReplyDelete
  23. I, too, think #2 is the lie. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love your quilt. I think the guys in Duran Duran have the same name so that would be the falsehood. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi! Thanks for the great interview! I think #3 is the lie.

    Sandy A

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm going with #3, but if that is a true story, I would LOVE to see a picture, how cute she would have been! The book looks awesome, btw...and the fabric is gorgeous. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love that quilt John! I also love patient spouses who help us get that perfect shot :) I'm going to guess that #2 is the lie. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Going with 2 as the lie...can't imagine Duran Duran being called a boy band!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm thinking number 2 is the lie!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm guessing number 2. Thanks for participating in the tour.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I vote number 2. I think we should get to see photo confirmation if number 3 is true--that's pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great tour stop! The colors in that line are lovely! I'm guessing #2, but they're all pretty awesome :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Guessing that Number 2 is the lie...

    1984 is WAY after my time...

    Love the Kingdom line!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Huh. I'd guess 3 is the lie, but who knows!? Have we seen the Kingdom Courtyards quilt on the blog before? I don't remember it, and it's so gorgeous I feel like I'd remember seeing it before. I love the art nouveau feel of that line! akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  35. #2 doesn't seem quite as crafty as the others, so I will guess that one..

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think that #2 is the lie! The fabrics are lovely -as is the quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Now I feel the need to make a quilt with circles! The quilt in that first photo is GORGEOUS!

    I think #3 is the lie. I hope so...I really, really want this book ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm guessing number 2.
    THANKS for the chance at the prizes :)
    ourbusylittlebunch(at)hotmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm guessing #2 is the lie-it seems to me I read somewhere that Jessica is into costumes & the other 2 have costumes!
    Kingdom courtyards is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  40. #2 is wrong. Your quilt it gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would love to win! I think #3 is the lie, but who knows?

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm going for #3 as the "story". And I LOVE your quilt, wow, so gorgeous!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm loving the look of this book it sounds like it will be really helpful and not just eye candy (not that I don't like eye candy!) and the fabric is delicious. No idea so I'll go for 2 as the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm going to guess that no. 1 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm guessing number 1 is the lie. This book looks so incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think #2 is untrue. :D Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think it's #3 (and if #3 is true, she was clearly an uber cool 5th grader!)!

    ReplyDelete
  48. humm- i think i would vote for #2

    ReplyDelete
  49. The book looks awesome! I think #2 is not true.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I also think that the second because I can't see her dad going to see them with her.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My guess is #3 being the untruthbut if not i hope we can see a pic! Love your Kingdom Courtyards quilt! Thanks for the chance to win!-

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would say number 3 is untrue! thanks for the review and giveway! Fun!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh gawd that is hard.. First I'd like to say I Lover her fabrics too!! we've had some of them in my store and they always sell.

    I think... two is a lie. Maybe? yeah.. ok.. that one.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm going to guess that #2 is the lie. And wow this book looks great and Kingdom looks beautiful!! It is a collection of all my fav colors!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. My guess is #3 because there's less detail in the answer.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm going to go with #1 as the lie. Fun giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wow, what fantastic quilts and fabrics, hope I win, I would love to add this book to my collection! I think #2 is the untruth!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Fabulous giveaway! I'm guessing # 1.

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is such a great book tour. I love the Kingdom Courtyard quilt! I think # 3 is a fib.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've been thinking about getting this book for a while now. Love the Kingdom line as well!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I am going with #2. Beautiful quilt and fantastic colors!
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  62. I vote for #1. Love the Kingdom fabric and the Kingdom Courtyards quilt pattern you designed for it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love, love, love your quilt. I would love to win the book!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Without looking at anyone else's guess, I go for #3.

    I WANT this book so much that as soon as I don't win it, I'll actually buy it, and I seldom do that. However, I hope it doesn't work out that way. :)

    Thx for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'll guess #2 is the lie, only because my Dad would have required a whole lot more than naming & spelling members' names. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think #2 is the lie.

    That quilt is stunning, John! When can I get my hands on the pattern? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'll guess #2 is the lie. Most of their names were pretty common and easy to spell.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Great quilt....dad!;)

    I think #3 is the untruth.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think 3 is the lie! I already bought the ebook but it doesnt work on ipad :(

    ReplyDelete
  70. I think #2 is the untruth. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I think #2 is the big fat stinky lie!! Thanks for the chance to win. Love your quilt, and those fabrics.

  72. I am going to say #2,but I have no idea. Love the baby quilt. The colors are beautiful. Thanks for a chance to win'

    ReplyDelete
  73. What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win. I'm gonna day #2 is the fib. The others are pretty crafty!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love the colors in the Kingdom fabric! And that book! I've been waiting to get my hands on it, but it's not exactly cheap...


    I can smell a lie out of thin air, so I'd say it's #1.

    ReplyDelete
  75. # 3, maybe LOL! I have to say the movie...Princess Bride would be on my list as well! Is that inconceivable or what!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. You always ask such great intervierw questions John. It's nice to see unique questions to help us get to know the person you are interviewing. I love Jessica's line Kingdom and your pattern Kingdom Courtyards is super. I'd love, love to win this giveaway.(as I wipe drool from my mouth, hehe)I think it's the second picture of Kingdom Courtyards (pictured above) that looks like it's floating!. A magical quilt perhaps? I think #2 is the fib. I'm probably putting too much thought into it, but figuring Jessica is around your age then she'd be about nine years old in 1984 and...well I think it's a fib.

    Thank you, Stash Books and Jessica for the giveaways and the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'm going with option 3 as being wrong, really don't know though so it's a stab in the dark

    ReplyDelete
  78. I think number 1 smells fishy. I love your Kingdom Courtyards....it really shows of the colors of her collection!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm feeling totally lost, because I was all of -2 in 1984, but I'll go with #1 being the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Well, the Duran question is just corny enough to be true, but I'll pick it anyway!! Thanks for the opportunity to win this amazing book and the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  81. And a hard question it is. My guess is #2 is not true.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I think #2 is the lie. Their names aren't that hard and I don't think of them as a boy band.

    ReplyDelete
  83. What a wonderful giveaway! I am going to guess #2 is the lie, I hope at least! I would really love to win this book and the gorgeous fabric! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think number 2 isn't true. But it's hard to tell. Who knows what crazy things any of us did in the 80's. Like big hair! Why??

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'm guessing #3 is the lie. I haven't seen "kingdom" before and it's beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Awesome giveaway! I'd say #3 is the lie. Right?

    ReplyDelete
  87. What a spectacular giveaway! I think #3 is a lie! Thanks so much for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I definitely vote for #2 as a lie. It's not like Simon Le Bon's name is that hard to spell correctly ;)

    ReplyDelete
  89. I think #3 is the lie. That book looks really intriguing, and I love those fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I'm going to say #2 is the lie just because #1 sounds like a designer/quilter and #3 is just too funny to be a lie.

    ReplyDelete
  91. First thought was #2 as the lie. I hope I'm right. i'd love to win the book and bundle.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I think #3 is the lie! Looks like a great book and beautiful fabric!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Just found your blog and LOVE it! Also love the book and fabrics! #1 is the lie. No logical reason why I chose that one, just seemed like it.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Fabulous fabric and pattern to showcase it. My guess of the untruth is number three.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Love the fabrics, love the quilt - will order the book tomorrow. I think that #3 is untrue. Is there a pattern for the quilt?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Love, love, love the book and fabric! Just found your blog and will be back often. Untruth is #1.

    ReplyDelete
  97. i'm guessing the untruth is the zz top costume- if not, that is freaking awesome! rock out!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I think number 3 is wrong, just because I think the beard is a little creepy.

    ReplyDelete
  99. #2 - spelling vs designing? No, I think not.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I have no idea which one is false but I think making a kid spell something is a very dad thing to do and I could imagine a zz top costume so I'm going to guess #1

    ReplyDelete
  101. I'm guessing that #1 is the untruth. I hope. Thanks for a great giveaway!
    arbendlin@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think number 1 is the lie. Or rather, I hope it is because I want the other 2 to be true :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. I went to a Duran Duran concert in the 80's too - I will pick#3.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I think #3 is the lie.

    dede(dot)dedebaker(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  105. Definitely #3. And I really like the wall art picture from the book!

    p.s. Your quilt rocks!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'm guessing no. 2! Your quilt, John, is simply divine!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I'm guessing no. 2! Love your quilt John, it shows off the fabrics beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
  108. My vote is No.2. I love your quilt and fabric choice. :) Are you going to release the pattern?
    yvonnebenson@bigpond.com

    ReplyDelete
  109. Lovely book and fabrics. What a fun question, I guess that the lie is no. 2.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I'm going to go with number 1 being the untruth. Fingers crossed that's the right one, because this is a wicked giveaway and the book looks stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I think #2 is the lie :o) And if #3 is true I'd love to see the pictures :o)

    ReplyDelete
  112. I think #1 and #2 are true, and #3 is false :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. I really think number 2 has to be the lie. Really, naming all the members, and then your Dad takes you? I know what my Dad would have done...
    What a wonderful give away, thanks so much for the chance...

    ReplyDelete
  114. I am going to guess that number 2 is the lie. I think they all seem plausible. Love the quilt, John. Is there a pattern available. I would love to win this...here's hoping.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Fun questions! I'll go with #2 since my dad would die before going to see Duran Duran

    ReplyDelete
  116. I'm guessing number 1 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Love the book...the chevron wall hanging has grest details. I guess #1 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I'm going to say #2 is wrong! Thanks for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I am probably saying #2 because a lot of others have - I surely hope they are right because I have not a clue - thanks for a wonderful opportunity and a great review. Judy C

    ReplyDelete
  120. #2??? I have no idea- but I would love to win!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I'm guessing that #3 is the lie. Thanks for the giveaway and the review. It looks like a great book.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I think #1 is the lie. I'd love to win the book and the fabrics are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I'm going with # 3. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I think #3 is a lie. Beautiful quilt and great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Put me down for #3 but I can't wait to find out the answer! Thanks for sharing with us and I love the work in the book and your quilt is pretty "quool"!!!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I'm going to guess #2 is false! Fun giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  127. I think that #3 is false, because the other two are too unusual to have made up. Love the Modern Mix patterns and your giveaway fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Number 3 is false.

    Love the quilt and fabric both are AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love her designs! I will guess that #1 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Going with #3 is the fib. Lisa in Texas

    ReplyDelete
  131. What beautiful fabric Kingdom is. This book looks like it's full of great projects. I enjoyed your interview as well and love the pattern that you made. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Awesome fabrics, beautiful quilts! I will take a wild stab and say that #1 is the lie. Sure would be thrilled to win a copy of this book. Have a blessed day!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I'm going to randomly guess that 3 is a lie, even though I think zz top would make a great halloween costume. Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  134. voting for #3! like the big blocks on your quilt; really showcases 'kingdom'

    ReplyDelete
  135. I'm thinking the Laura Branagan is the lie but I don't know why I think so. The book looks delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I love your quilt and would like to put more solids (other than black, white and coal)into my quilts

    My answer is zztop
    I don't know why

    ReplyDelete
  137. #2 is the lie, I think. Everyone I know has dressed as zz top at some time or other, and the first one seems too wierd to make up! This looks like a very nice book; thanks for the chance to win it and the fabric too.

    ReplyDelete
  138. #3 is too great not to be true, I'm going to say #2 with Duran Duran memorizing :) Fun way to enter btw!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Great interview and giveaway! The question is a tough one -- I'll guess #2 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Great fabrics! I choosing #1 as the lie as I always know who's in my favourite bands and #3 is something I'd do!
    Cheers,
    Robyn

    ReplyDelete
  141. I think #1 is the lie. My memory is a little fuzzy but I don't recall Laura Branigan being much of a fashion plate.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I am going with #2 but don't know why. However, no matter what, I really think I am going to have to buy this book even though I am not normally a modern or contemporary quilter. However, I love everything I see in this book. Hmmm, maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks .... or at least get them to expand their horizons.

    ReplyDelete
  143. What fun! I am going to guess #3 is the untruth...

    ReplyDelete
  144. I vote #2, because it sounds the lame-est. :P

    ReplyDelete
  145. #2. Please add me to the give away. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  146. i think that 3 is a lie and I do not know why! thanks for the giveaway!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  147. I'm going to guess it's number 2. I'm excited about this giveaway. I'm sure at some point I will be the lucky winner in one of these - I hope it's this one!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  148. <3 Giveaways :) But I read your blog for more than just the chance at free stuff! I think #1 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  149. I think it's #1... did you really have the patience to sketch out different outfits?

    ReplyDelete
  150. I will go with number 2. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Oh, pick me, pick me! I would love a copy of the book and a fat quarter bundle! How generous of you! I'm thinking #3 is the untruth...let's hope!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I think No. 1 is the untruth! I love the quilt you made with the Kingdom fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Not sure if this is open to International as I know some aren't but having a go just in case, my guess is number 3 is wrong. Thanks Linda

    ReplyDelete
  154. Oh! I'm in love with this book! I'm entering as many of these giveaways as I can before I order my copy! And I think No 2 is a lie (keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for the opportunity, John!
    Cheers from India

    ReplyDelete
  155. What a fabulous book and beautiful fabric. I think that #1 is the lie.

    ReplyDelete

  160. Ooo ... great 2 truths and a lie. Tough. I say #1 is the lie: too obvious. And that is one sweet pot. Maybe I'll win since I'm commenting today and using my "birthday mojo!"

  177. #2 Duran Duran--any self respecting fan can spell their names, so that seems like too simple a test.
