Mosaic Tiles Quilt-A-Long

Happy December! 'Tis the season for handmade holidays . . . and being incredibly busy! That's why I'm excited to announce a super-fun and simple quilt along that you can easily take part in, no matter how much more shopping, wrapping and baking you have to do!

Next Monday, 12/9 through 2/14 (that's Valentine's Day for all you romantics!), Craft Buds is hosting the Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along! This beginner-friendly quilt pattern was designed by Sukie for the book, Modern Bee—13 Quilts to Make with Friends, by my friend, Lindsay Conner.

Mosaic Tiles
Although it's a Quilt-A-Long, participants are not limited to making quilts. We'd love to see what you can create based on the original Mosaic Tiles block design. Is it a holiday stocking or tree skirt? How about an eBook cover or messenger bag? Whip up a mini quilt for your Valentine, an apron for your sister or your own quilt design inspired by the block. Anything goes, as long as you create a finished item! During the 10-week quilt a long, we'll be sharing project inspiration, quilting tips and layout options with lots of help from our friends. If you don't have time to get started in December, we invite you to go ahead and sign up anyway! You can join us in 2014 with plenty of time to finish a project before mid-February. Here's the schedule:
