Vintage Sheet FQ's IDEA


I have a crazy idea floating around in my head...... how about a Vintage Sheet Quilting BEE

I decided it would be a good follow up to our vintage sheet FQ swap... it will make us use some of our sheet stash.

What is a quilting bee you ask? It is a group of 12 ladies who each host a month and choose 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. 

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 roseylittlethings@gmail.com.

The bee will start as soon as we have enough participants.

Happy stitching!

I love the idea (and was just thinking something similar the other day!). But I wonder if we'd even need to send out fabric? I mean, if everyone is using vintage sheets, and we all already have vintage sheets, what's the point? We'd have to all be okay with a totally scrappy look, obviously! But it would sure simplify things.

Sign me up as well, * "hi Evelyn" - waving*
very exciting...
Maybe send out one fabric to include in the blocks??? and we add from our stash ... Just an idea.:)

I like the idea! Count me in! I also like Evelyn's idea, though we might want to send background fabric. Or if we had something specific in mind, maybe say blue vintage only and mail out some if someone doesn't have any.

I am SO into this!! I've been thinking about it, too!! I like Evelyn's idea, of course so long as everyone already has a nice stash (which, thanks to you, I do). Anyway - count me in for sure!

id love to join as well. i like the idea of supplying a main piece to coordinate with, or background solid.

Count me in, if its not too late! I'm in two bees currently, one where we use stash and one where we send fabric, so I'm ok either way! LOL!!
