Lindsay Conner has been writing about crafts online for years now. I love how she promotes quilting and other crafts via several sites.. she has a passion for it all!
When she asked if I'd like to review her book and be part of the book tour I was thrilled!
You know I have been part of quilt bees since I started quilting. First in person, then on my internet groups and eventually in flickr and Facebook groups.
Having a sense of friendship and bonding that a group of quilters gives me is part of my very being. I love to be able to talk quilting any time of the day or night!
Lindsay's book introduction shares how she joined a guild and actually found out that two people in the guild were in her office! BINGO right? I can TOTALLY relate.
The whole reason I learned to quilt is because my work friend Gwen told me I'd love it. Which I did! After I learned we recruited others in the office then had outing together, sewed at lunch time and generally supported each other (yes.. I did make that run to the quilt shop at lunch to pick up some of the latest fabric for everyone!)
As we join groups we tend to get involved in sharing.. and sometimes the sharing means round robins, swaps or other forms of making things for each other! That is the focus of the book. How to create a group (online or in-person) that will work on projects for each other.
She also address the things that will go wrong.. notice I didn't say 'can'.. but WILL. Blocks done wrong or with less quality work.. to a bee that just is NOT a fit for you. She has super advice!
And quilt blocks.. with the stories behind them. The 'Stacked Windmills' is my favorite in the book!
