5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic concept, beautifully executed, June 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Block Party: The Modern Quilting Bee: The Journey of 12 Women, 1 Blog & 12 Improvisational Projects (Paperback)
I absolutely LOVED this book! I buy and use a lot of quilting books, but this is the first one that I read cover-to-cover without skimming over anything, and the reason is that it has, in addition to beautiful, illustrative photos and clear, concise directions, a great narrative through-line! I loved reading about how these twelve women, each in far-flung locations and with different lives and tastes and aesthetics, came together to make this 21st century version of a traditional quilting bee work. I am eager to try out all of the techniques in this book, especially the modern take on hexies. This is also the first time that paper-piecing techniques have ever made sense to me, and I've read dozens of descriptions and tutorials on them in the past.

I can't recommend this book highly enough! It is a must-read and must-own for modern quilters or anyone interested in learning more about modern quilting. I'd give it a sixth star if I could!
