The Quilting Book Club

Posted on April 19th, by Amy in Modern Basics. 8 comments

Recently, I was contacted by Shawna at 1 Choice 4 Quilting, about making quilts as a group from Modern Basics.  What a great idea!

Click the graphic to find out how to get involved!

There is no cost to participate, just get a book and find the fabrics that you want to use, or grab a kit here! The Quilt Book Club will use one book for 4-6 months, each month will be a new pattern, and you are welcome to join for just one month, or make one every month!  It’s up to you!

Shawna has a flickr group set up to show off your quilts in progress, and learn from each other as you sew.  Of course, since the group is starting with Modern Basics, I will be checking in often to see how everyone is doing.  And offer words of encouragement as needed!  I only wish I had more hours – I’d make this one up again!

I can’t wait to see more quilts popping up online!

Are you in?
