Modern Bee--Big News

There is happy news going on at Lindsay Sews.

About a year and a half ago, I received an email from Elizabeth asking whether I would be interested in being part of an online bee. Since Elizabeth and I had been emailing back and forth for while and I really loved all the things she was doing, I immediately said yes. When I discovered who the other bee members were, my first thought was, "Um, you know I'm old enough to be your mother just a little older than most of you, right?" Any misgivings were completed erased at the thought of being part of this group. I just knew it was going to be a good thing.

Lindsay was also part of the bee. Now she has a book coming out with the quilts from the bee, and I'm so thrilled to be a part of it. (And my quilt is even on the cover, second from the bottom!)

Lindsay has worked so hard to make this book become a reality. And she is right when she says that this book is "celebrating the work of creative individuals! Quilting TOGETHER. Creative oneness. Coming together to do something that none of us could do on our own."

And now, a year later, the book is available for preorder at Amazon! Modern Bee: 13 Quilts to Make with Friends will release October 1, 2013 (wow, that seems like a long time...) by Stash Books/C&T Publishing.

Lindsay will be sharing more about the process later and I'll be sharing her links. In the meantime, she has set up a website where you can learn a little more about all of us.

Go say hi to Lindsay. Really. She has a little giveaway going on, open until April 3.
