Thoughts on a Virtual Quilting Bee
Edited to add that we have enough quilters for this bee. Thank you for your interest!!
Would anyone out there be interested in doing a virtual quilting bee based on this one from mamaurchin? I think it would be a wonderful way to connect and share our talent and friendship. If you are interested, please go to the link above and read all the details, but hese are the basic guidelines:
Each month one of the members (that month’s designer) sends me the fabric(s) for their quilt. The designer should send enough fabric for all twelve blocks and an idea or patern for the blocks. I then distribute the fabrics into envelopes and send them on to the other members, keeping one set of fabric for myself. Members then have until the end of the month to create a block that fits in the design idea of the designing member for that month and send it back to me. I gather all 11 blocks together and send them to the designing member. Beginning to get the idea? I absolutely love the idea.
Please leave a comment if you would like to join and are able to commit to this process. One block a month shouldn’t be too much to add to our own projects…right?? If I get 12 people interested right away, we could start in February. What a good way to start the year.
