Halloween Book

Is it too late? BOO! Probably.

But maybe this would be a good book for next Halloween! That’s really what I should be doing….planning that far ahead. Otherwise it will just never happen the way I want it too. Heck, every year I forget to plan seeds for sunflowers, and then come August I wonder why I didn’t plant any. Well, THIS year I’ve put it on my calendar to remind me to do this in the Spring. Perhaps this Halloween book is the same thing. (Click on the image above to go to C&T Publishing’s site for new book releases.)

Plan, plan, plan.

Modern Bee

Modern Quilts

13 quilts to spark your creativity, build your skills, and connect you with others

Here’s what C&T has to say about this book:

• Unique, modern quilt patterns for a year of full-sized quilts. Plus, a bonus 13th quilt for an auction
• Take your quilting skills to the next level! Each monthly project lets you learn more advanced techniques
• Includes everything you need to know about organizing and running a virtual bee, including valuable advice on troubleshooting problems

Create. Grow. Connect. This how-to book features 13 projects for a virtual one-year quilting bee. Crafted with a modern aesthetic, the patterns are inspired by traditional quilt blocks as well as bits and pieces of daily life. As you quilt along with this book from month to month, you’ll master sewing techniques of increasing difficulty—from easy to advanced. Each project includes instructions for assembling the block and for finishing a full-size quilt. You’ll also find a comprehensive section on quilting basics and plenty of tips on organizing your own virtual bee.

Every year my quilt group selects a quilt design for our raffle quilt. It’s always a difficult selection process. And then the fun begins when we come together to sew it all together. We haven learned that we each sew a tad differently, and so it isn’t as easy as it seems to put together even the simplest of quilts. Funny, because we are all good sewers. But that’s the way it goes when you are working in a group. So perhaps this book will shed some light on sewing together!

Happy quilting!
