A Quilt Along and Radio Show Update

Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along

Modern Bee Quilt Along

I'm so excited to share that I'll be hosting a quilt along this winter, thanks to the help of my friends . . .

Amy of 13 Spools
Sarah of Fabric Seeds
Darcy of Modern Cozy
Katy of Lethargic Lass 

Each of these lovely ladies will be making a project inspired by the January quilt from Modern Bee, Mosaic Tiles. This fun and fast block was designed by Sukie, and lends itself to so many fun projects!

The quilt along will run Dec. 9th through Feb. 14th, because I know we are all busy over the holidays! There will be plenty of time to jump in during the 10 weeks, so don't worry if you don't have the book yet. You can even add it to your Amazon wishlist and ask Santa to bring you a copy. :)

Mosaic Tiles

Whether you're a pro or a brand new quilter, this block is perfect for you! I'd love for you to join us and make any project at all inspired by the block! Here are a few ideas:

Mini quilts:
Pillow cover
Table runner
Mug rug

Simple Skirt
Tote Bag

Pet bed
Baby quilt 
Laptop sleeve

Modern Bee Quilt Along

If you'd like to join the quilt along, all you'll need to do is grab a copy of the Modern Bee, book and start thinking about your projects and fabric. Did I mention there are prizes?! I've shared more details over at my other blog, Craft Buds. 

There's also a new Flickr Group dedicated to projects from the book, so hop on over if you'd like to join and link up your progress. I've also dedicated a discussion thread to folks who are looking to join or start a quilting bee, to help people get connected!

APQ Radio Update

I'm happy to report that my chat with Pat Sloan went off without a hitch! If you'd like to check out my interview on the American Patchwork and Quilting Radio Show, you can listen online right here!


  1. just listened to the podcast while I was riding my exercise bike.... love hearing all about it and can't wait to get my hands on a copy! I put it on my amazon wishlist, hoping hubby will take the hint. If not, it will be a treat to myself! I haven't done any bees yet but would love to...

  2. Thank you so much for inviting me to play, looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with :o)

  3. You sounded great on Pat's show :-)

  4. Love the colors and patterns in those tiles! You picked great ones.
