When Block Party came out, I was immediately jealous of the camaraderie among the members of that virtual quilting bee. Then I was envious of the results of their quilting efforts – “modern”, “Gee’s Bend”-ish, improvisational, interpretive, essentially riffing on traditional quilting patterns. I loved it.
Nancy turned the book into a club and people joined, slowly at first, and now we’re up to 10 members. Seven months have passed, and we have seven quilts in various stages of completion. We plan on meeting until everyone has at least one quilt, and I know I wouldn’t mind continuing beyond that. This blog will hopefully add some glue to our group and serve as reminder and inspiration.
