I got an advanced copy earlier this week and it’s so crazy to finally have it here in my hands! Monday is my birthday and I’d say that this is a pretty great present!
It’s been a long process getting to this point. In October of 2008 (!) Kristen emailed me to see if I might want to start a bee with her. It was just one month later that she mentioned the idea of a book and we were instantly off and running with the idea.
Block Party is about quilts and community. In finding quilting a few years ago, I also found community and I really think that the book captures the spirit of that. There have been great friendships made through the bee.
And needless to say, it’s a huge thrill that Denyse Schmidt, whose book inspired me to start quilting in the first place, wrote an amazing foreward for us!
And here’s a just a couple of the 12 quilts in the book!
I really couldn’t be happier with the amazing job that Stash Books did. It comes out so soon and I hope that you all like it too!
