Did you see our announcement last week about the Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along? We are thrilled that many of you said you’d like to join us in quilting the January pattern from the bookÂ Modern Bee: 13 Quilts to Make with Friends. Today, we’re sharing some of the amazing prizes that you can win!
These prizes are courtesy of our amazing quilt along sponsors: Aurifil, OLFA, Pellon, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Simplicity Creative Group and Stash Books!

Want to Quilt Along?
Here’s a quick overview of the contest!
1. Today December 9, 2013 through February 14, 2014 (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 my book, Modern Beeâ€”13 Quilts to Make with Friends, so you’ll need to have a copy of the book to participate.
2. Weâ€™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!
3. During the 10-week quilt along, weâ€™ll be sharing project inspiration, quilting tips and layout options with lots of help from our friends. If you donâ€™t have time to get started in December, we invite you to go ahead and join us anyway! You can join us in 2014 with plenty of time to finish a project before mid-February. Hereâ€™s the schedule:
