Lucky me! I get to blog about a really cool book, Block Party – The Modern Quilting Bee by Alissa Haight Carlton & Kristen Lejnieks.
I’m a pretty modern girl with a real attraction to both new and old. To me, this book epitomizes just that. The modern designs and fabrics mixed with the old traditional concept of a quilting bee. Block Party takes you on a quilting bee journey; learning about a variety of traditional blocks and techniques in a fresh and modern way and learning about how an online community of quilters make up a modern day quilting bee. If you’ve ever wanted to make a cool and modern quilt, this book is for you, it’s a great source of inspiration! And if you’ve ever wanted to share your love of quilting with others, this is a great guidebook on how a bee works and how to get a bee started! One of my favorite aspects in learning about the bee is how the designers would send off packets to the other members, giving guidelines (but not word-for-word directions) and letting each bee member use their own creativity. The end result is a fun and unique combination of all involved.
Here’s a sneak peek of some of my favorite quilts featured.
