I just received news that one of the books that features one of my quilting projects will be released early in November!  The book is called "Modern Blocks:  99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers," by Stash Books (a division of C&T Publishing).

These fresh and fun 12” blocks are beginner-friendly with complete cutting instructions. This book is great for block swaps; combine blocks to make your own impressive modern quilt."

Here is a sample page, which includes the block that I created (called the "Topsy Turvy Tree" block.  All of the projects are beautiful and feature interesting designs.  I'm really happy with how the block turned out in the book, and I look forward to seeing how other folks interpret the block:
