Quilting Bee Anyone??

I have been dieing to join an online quilting bee...but whenever I see one, they are all ready in progress or full.  So I thought I would see if anyone wants to join me for a quilting bee.

What is a quilting bee you ask?  It is a group of 12 ladies who each host a month and choose their fabric and block design. The hostess then sends the fabric to the other 11 ladies and each person makes a block or more and sends it back.  This is repeated each month for a year until each person has had their turn. It gives you a chance to try out new quilt blocks with out having to make a whole quilt.  Here is a link to a flickr group called quilting bee blocks, great place to get inspiration. 

Here is a link to a quilting bee: Bee Imaginative.  There are a ton more if you look around online.

I am looking for 11 ladies, who love quilting and want to be part of a bee.  US residents please... due to postage cost. All skill levels welcome.

If you are interested in joining you can leave a comment on this post or email me at

The bee will start as soon as we have enough participants. 
 Happy stitching!

Do you still have any openings?

Oh, I'd love to. I really would. But I'm in two bee's right now and behind on both. Way behind. But I'm keeping an eye on this post. Maybe, just maybe, if I can get caught up and you aren't filled up yet.....then maybe I can talk myself into it. LOL

Well, that sounds like tons of fun. I'm in. I guess I'm number one.
I'm going to add you to my blog page, maybe we can round up some more participants that way.

I'd love to join you. I'm presently in 2 bees, but have room to do another one, if you've still got space.
