Over a year ago, I posted several photos of a quilt which was made by Mary Kerr, who stitched soft pastel vintage fabrics into a modern hexie setting. I quilted this lovely quilt top using a variety of modern sashes and was excited to see that Mary included this beautiful quilt, which she named "Modern Mojo", in her new book called Twisted, published by Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. Twisted is a beautiful and inspirational quilting book, the best new quilting eye candy I've seen. In it, Mary asked 22 long arm quilters to quilt a top made from vintage textiles, but assembled by Mary into a contemporary setting. Mary featured before, during and after photographs of each of these quilts, asking the quilters to discuss their inspiration for the quilting. There are some really beautiful quilts with totally amazing quilting, and I feel honored to have been included in this book. I was also pleased to hear that Suzi Parron mentioned Modern Mojo as the quilt she was particularly struck by as she looked through the book in her Sit and Sew Radio program, episode 13. Thanks, Suzi! I hope each of you gets a chance to see Mary's beautiful new book.

Love of color and whimsy combined with skilled technique is evidenced in the work of traditional award winning quilter Marty Vint, who was born and raised in Baltimore.
