A quilt for a modern-day patriot, a vintage modern design and an Amish-inspired quilt are just some of the quilts featured in the book. Inspired by country air, traditional roots and modern fun – see how fresh this Country Girl Modern can be! Modern quilters looking for easy bed-size projects will love the simplicity and striking modern designs of the quilts in Country Girl Modern.
