Portlander Susan Beal’s new book, Modern Log Cabin Quilting, comes out tomorrow, and we’re so excited for her that we’re dedicating the rest of the week to Log Cabin quilts.  Look for plenty of upcoming posts on the book and the patchwork technique.

We tracked Susan down at the Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting last week and got her to sign our advance copy, which we’ll be giving away on April 1st.  How do you enter the giveaway, you ask?  By commenting on the cool cottons blog!

  16. Joy Gross says:

    OH I would love to have that book 🙂

    This book looks fantastic. The quilt on the cover is visually satisfying.

  18. Wendy says:

    I can’t wait to see the new book — spotted it on Amazon in recent months and have had my eye on it. The cover project looks terrific so I can’t wait to see what other projects are inside.
    Hoooooooooray for Susan. Thank you to Cool Cottons for the reminder about the book and the giveaway.

  27. Laura lewellen says:

    I live across the country from COOL COTTONS,, but each time i am in Portland i visit for a look at the gorgeous fabrics, as well as the new patterns….i would LOVE to own this book, to make new quilts…..

  28. Joycelyn Moody (Joyce) says:

    I’m a Nebraskan. My daughter lives in Portland. Absolutely love your shop! We always find “a quilt, or curtains, etc.” from your shop when I visit. The cover of the book makes me want to start another project. Bet there are lots of other great projects in it! And I bet you could help me with the fabric!

  29. Jennifer says:

    Lovely, lovely book!

  30. Catherine says:

    I’m loving this new modern quilt movement which is more color focused. This book looks like another goodie in that vein.

  31. Michelle says:

    Can’t wait to get some fabrics and make one of the projects from the book!

  32. From your review and the “sneak peak” photos you put up, this looks like a really fun book with some excellent projects. I have never thought of the log cabin block as contemporary, but it’s all about the fabrics!, Right?

    • coolcottons says:

      Steve: It really is all about the fabric. Look for a post tomorrow on historical log cabin quilts, which are beautiful in their own right but very different from the modern versions.

  33. myra says:

    Based on the wonderful quilt on the cover, I’m looking forward to the rest of the book. A new book for my collection!

  34. Claudia Michel says:

    Your shop has all of the perfect fabrics to make this beautiful quilt. I can’t wait to get started!

  35. kittee says:

    I am shopping for quilt books right now! I would love to add this to my crafting library.

  36. Kendra Hume says:

    The cover is very enticing. Can’t wait to see the inside.

  37. I had the opportunity to meet Susan at the local guild meeting and run into her at a local business. She is a genuine person and the success of her book is going to reflect that!

  38. Florence Muma says:

    Would love to win. Log Cabin quilts have always been my most favorite.

  39. britt says:

    Oh my! Will Portland ever run short on talent? The book looks lovely… my mom and I have been searching for a quilt pattern to work on together (mother-daughter quilts!) and I bet we could find more than enough inspiration in this book!

  40. Sharen Shumaker says:

    I love shopping at Cool Cotton’s! They always seem to have something that I really need. The book would be perfect addition to my quilting needs.

  41. Sara Albert says:

    Ooo ooo sign me up!

  42. Terri Carpenter says:

    It looks like a cool book and it’s exciting to know that it’s from our own neighborhood.

  43. deb says:

    Fabulous quilt shop! So inspiring. See you soon.

  44. susan says:

    Love the shop, want the book!

  45. Shana says:

    So beautiful. Someday I will quilt like that.

  46. Cathy says:

    I’m sure this beautiful book will be an inspiration just like your shop is!

  47. Mary T. says:

    Love Log Cabins and this looks like a great fun way to use those crazy fabrics. I am entering to give to a friend who has been very sick recently and would love this book.

  48. Lanny Straughan says:

    Log cabin patterns have always been my favorite! Looking forward to getting one of these books… Lanny:)

  49. Cathy says:

    I love making log cabin quilts. I love the QfQ idea.

  50. kristin says:

    You all rock. Great fabrics and store. So much so, that even my husband likes to come in and look around. And what a clever way to get us all to comment on your blog! I have to admit that I get most of my crafty books from the library. That way I can buy more fabrics with the money I save. 😉

  51. Kate Wadhams says:

    Yes, I would love a copy and the time to make a quilt!
    What a gorgeous cover.

  52. jeanne says:

    Wow, love the quilt on the cover. can’t wait to get my quilting paws on that book. Love coming to your store when we visit Portland. Please add me to your giveaway. And thanks for offering it.

  53. Taunia Mann says:

    Can’t wait to see that book!

  54. Katherine says:

    Can’t wait to see modern takes on my favorite pattern!

  55. Gillian says:

    I really like the cross quilt on the cover–but why make the background white? So many quilts go for the white background and I just imagine them covered in stains.

  56. Roxanne says:

    Goodbye Thimbleberries. Hello modern! Love this book – really really love it! Want it. Love the new take and it is inspiring – lots of new ways to make the scrappy type of quilts but look new and fresh.

  57. Kate says:

    Looks like a lovely book, I would love to win a copy!

  58. I’ve been a long-time fan of the store but only recently found the blog. Log cabin quilts have always been a favorite of mine and I’d love to make my own someday.

  59. Yzobela says:

  65. I’ve done my own non-traditional log cabin quilt, but it looks like this is a great take on it! Can’t wait to see the rest of the book!

  66. Karen says:

    I’m a relatively new quilter so I would love to add this book to my beginning collection of books!

  67. Yum Yum!
