This book offers a virtual, one-year quilting bee! There is a full-sized quilt for each month of the year, plus one extra. The patterns are modern in style, yet inspired by traditional quilt blocks. Each monthly project includes instructions for the block and for finishing the quilt. The instructions allow you to learn more advanced techniques as you go along. (Quilter's Digest, 9/15/13)
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)
The quilt patterns in this book are created by Mod Stitches Bee. They are organized by skill level from beginner to confident beginner through intermediate. Lindsay Conner shows you how to start a bee, choose members and projects, and how the bee can give back to the community. Within the 13 patterns are helpful tips from using the proper tools to trying a new fabric or layout. The book concludes with finishing techniques - borders, sashing, backing, basting, quilting and binding. (Modern Quilts Unlimited, Fall 2013)

Were I not to have joined a bee, I would still want to own this book. The quilts in here are fantastic, ranging from beginner to advanced. The instructions are detailed and clearly written. Very glad I decided to buy the book and join a Bee. I have a feeling I've made some life-long quilty type friends because of it!
The quilts in this book are great just on their own, and good for any experience level. I love it that as you flip through the quilt instructions, there is more instruction and helpful tips as you go. The instructions really progress as you continue through the book.
The photography is great too, I just love looking at the pictures, but the projects are really doable.
I definitely recommend this book.

The blocks are all fresh and modern, which is rare to find so many of in one book.
Great work by Lindsey Connor and fellow bloggers!
