Have you checked out the new quilting book by Lindsay Conner? It is called Modern Bee – 13 Quilts to Make With Friends.
I received my copy and read it straight through, from the beginning to end in one sitting! The book is a wealth of information on quilting and how to join and/or create a bee. I have been sewing for many years, but quilting for less than 5. This was the perfect book to jump start my quilting for 2014.
Aside from the quilting tips and tid bits, the monthly blocks are my favorite part. The book starts with January and showcases a new block for each month. Calling all quilters – what wonderful timing to get your creative juices flowing at the onset of a new year.
I am beyond inspired and ready to start on my February block. I’m thinking of the possibility of a table runner a month for 2014..Fun, right? I love the thought of researching new color combinations and buying a few charm packs each month!
Pick up a book right away. Lindsay created a Quilt Along to coincide with the release of the book. There are amazing prizes to be won. You still have time to join along, as her Quilt Along runs though Feb 14th. To find more information, head on over to Craft Buds. By the way, I’m a guest judge.. So, I look forward to seeing what everyone makes.
