Organize a modern quilting bee with these 13 projects that spark creativity, build skills, and connect you with others.
Modern Bee―13 Quilts to Make with Friends by Lindsay Conner features 13 projects for a virtual one-year quilting bee. Crafted with a modern aesthetic, the patterns are inspired by traditional quilt blocks as well as bits and pieces of daily life. As you quilt along with this book from month to month, you'll master sewing techniques elevating in difficulty―from easy to advanced. Each project is comprised of block instructions and a pattern to finish a full-size quilt. You'll also find a comprehensive section on quilting basics and plenty of tips on organizing your own virtual bee.
“A modern bee: quilters connect only by Internet and snail mail, each month a “host” chooses a block, others work that block to return to the “host” for assembly.... Conner, a writer/editor/quilter/blogger, produces a well-crafted guidebook based on her online bee, the Mod Stitches. Members designed a baker’s dozen patterns—one for each month, plus one for gift-giving or charity fundraising—that would work well for the modern bee as well as for individual quilters.”—Publishers Weekly
