Product Information

Online quilting bees are popular among modern quilters, and this collection of 12 quilt patterns that emerged from the yearlong Mod Stitches Bee features designs that fall squarely within the modern-traditionalist style. Quilters familiar with the modern quilting blogosphere will recognize several of the designers, including Elizabeth Dackson, Jeni Baker, and Sukie Newbold, all of whom sell or share their patterns online. The projects include modern takes on log cabin, snowball, drunkard's path, and star blocks, as well as a string-pieced circle block that looks much tougher than it actually is. VERDICT Those who enjoy quilts that bring modern flair to traditional blocks will enjoy this compendium of beginner-to-intermediate patterns. --Library Journal; September 2013
