So last week I mentioned that I’d be taking part in a Quilt Along for the Modern Bee Book and today it kicks off over at Craft Buds.  The good news is that even though it’s silly season on the making and partying front, you don’t need to make a quilt, you can make anything you like that uses the block, so let your imagination run wild!

Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along

Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along

This beginner-friendly quilt pattern was designed by Sukie for Lindsay’s new book, Modern Bee: 13 Quilts to Make with Friends

Mosaic Tiles

Participants are not limited to making quilts, in fact we’d love to see what you can create based on the original Mosaic Tiles block design.  Is it a holiday stocking or tree skirt?  How about an eBook cover or messenger bag?  Whip up a mini quilt for your Valentine, an apron for your sister or your own quilt design inspired by the block.  Anything goes, as long as you create a finished item!

During the 10-week quilt along, we’ll be sharing project inspiration, quilting tips and layout options with lots of help from our friends.  If you don’t have time to get started in December, we invite you to go ahead and sign up anyway!  You can join us in 2014 with plenty of time to finish a project before mid-February.

We’re also going to ask for some help from some lovely guest judges, who will choose winners for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place based on overall creativity, execution and innovation of the original pattern.

Grab a Book!

If you already have the Modern Bee book, you’ve got all you need to sign up for the quilt along!  If you don’t have the book, you can get either a paper copy
or a Kindle edition from your favourite craft book sellers.

Do you Plan to Sew Along?

We’d love for you to add a link to your blog, Flickr account or online profile in the link-up tool below.  This way, we can stay in touch, get to know each other and share our progress!  Quilting is lots more fun with friends, and we cannot wait to see what you create!
