A Big Announcement!

One year ago in March, everything changed. The week happened something like this:

Sunday: My husband had recently resigned from his job to pursue writing full-time.

Wednesday: I was called into a meeting at work. My co-workers and I joked, "This is probably the day we'll lose our jobs." We gathered into a crowded, makeshift conference room on the first floor. The meeting was no longer than 5 minutes, with one announcement. Yep, we were all probably losing our jobs.

Friday: I was eagerly prepping for a Indy Modern Quilt Guld retreat at my house. Cleaning, sorting the door prizes (my favorite part!), cooking a bit. In between preparations, I received a voicemail which changed everything. "Lindsay, we've been trying to reach you. Give me a call, because we want to move forward with your book proposal!"


I am honored, humbled and so very grateful to announce that I wrote a book!

Modern Bee: 13 Quilts to Make with Friends, will release October 1, 2013 with Stash Books/C&T Publishing. For me, this project marries some of my favorite things: modern quilting, community and celebrating the work of creative individuals! Quilting TOGETHER. Creative oneness. Coming together to do something that none of us could do on our own.

Someday soon, I'll share more about the process of putting this book together. I didn't do it alone, but with the help of some very talented contributors!



I've set up a little website so you can learn more about the book, the amazing quilters and some HUGE news that I cannot wait to share. The book is also available for pre-sale on Amazon!

Giveaway!


Let's celebrate with a giveaway! Leave any old comment on this post (you can let me know if you've ever quilted with a bee) and I'll choose one random winner to receive a FQ bundle of Textures by Angela Walters for Art Gallery Fabrics.

Giveaway open in the U.S. and ends Wednesday, 4/3! Giveaway closed. Congrats to #45, Lisa! Second winner chosen: #178: Elaine!

  2. Hi Lindsay:

    Can't wait for your book. I have quilted with a few bees (local and on-line) since I took up quilting again this January after about 30 years away. Back then everything with so traditional and I now recognize I'm really a modern quilter. Congratulations on the book.

  36. Congratulations on your book. I'm not sure if what my 3 sisters & I do would be called a "bee". We live in 4 different states, but we've made 2 quilts for my father, done several round robins, a row robin, block exchanges and this year a mystery quilt. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congratulations on your new book!
    Quilting is still very new to me. Most of my sewing has been for home dec and practical clothing alterations. I guess I've been a loner. So, no, I haven't experience a Quilting Bee. Your book should give me some insights as well as project inspirations.
    Thank you, Lindsay, for the opportunity to win a FQ Bundle of "Textures". The fabric looks both refreshing and soothing.

    ReplyDelete

  48. Last week, my girlfriend spent 5 days / 4 nights in a charming cabin in Nevada City, CA, the sole purpose of which was to quilt. Our car was loaded with a cutting table, design wall, mats, rulers, sewing machines, fabric, food and wine. Does that count as a Bee? I say yes!! BTW, I was able to finish 6 tops that were in various stages of completion and have a 7th almost done. I say yay for me!! Now, on to the quilting of the tops.

  81. Love the book. When I was 4/5 I would sit under the quilt that my grandmother's quilting bee was quilting and play. I remember looking up and seeing the hand under the quilt guiding the stitches and hearing the buzz of women sharing stories and talking about being mothers and wives and single women too. many hands made quick work of that quilting.

  83. I'm the member of a bee that's currently making a memorial quilt for the husband of a member. It's a way for us to get together and remember a man we all loved and at the same time support our friend who has lost the love of her life. We're all pretty excited about this project, while mourning our friend. Pretty complicated, huh? Thanks for the getaway.

  107. I would love to be part of a bee, or guild, or have any nearby quilting friends for that matter. Unfortunately, I live in a very small village of about 200 ppl in Ohio. Plus I'm kinda young for a quilter I think because none of my friends quilt and they think I'm silly I think, but they love my quilts! Hopefully someday soon I can have some sewing buddies in real life instead of cyber sewing buds :)

  159. Congratulations on your book! I can't wait to read it! Is 2 people a bee? My mom and I quilt together and I'm actively trying to convert my daughter to quilting! Wouldn't that be cool?...3 generations.

  165. I am in my first two bees this year. I think they are so much fun and really help to expand your skills and help you step out of your "box".

    Thanks for the generous giveaway. I love that Angela Walter's fabric!

    I've never participated in a bee, but it sure sounds like fun! I do participate in swaps at times, but they are for things like mug rugs and table runners.

  180. Congratulations on your book. I love modern quilting since it seems to only have the boundaries my mind places on it. It's fun to imagine and start sewing. Our quilt shop has a modern quilting group which meets monthly.

  183. Congratulations ont he book. Cannot wait to get my hands on it.... I am still relatively new to quilting . But hae sewn my entire life. I moved there to this small town that has no fabric shops or quilt shops. And no sewers are quilters besides my sister whom I have met. So I have been following blogs and learning about all this quilting stuff. Still haven't quiet figured out what a bee is or how it works. But always see posts about bee blocks. Would love to learn more.
