I am starting a new virtual quilting bee called Snip.Sew.Send. It will run similarly to other quilting bees such as Common Threads, Sew Connected and Block Party.
Here is the low down:
Each month one member will purchase and mail fabrics to the other members. They will make a quilt block with those fabrics according to the sender's instructions. We'll have several weeks to complete the block and mail it back by the end of the month so she can complete the quilt. All the members will be invited to author on this blog so everyone can still enjoy the whole quilt making process.
After all 12 member have committed, I'll assign months by drawing names randomly, unless someone has a special request. I would like to have everything organized to begin by sending the first fabrics at the beginning of June.
The bee will run from June 2009 through the end of June 2010. I think we should skip December due to all the holidays,travelling and gifting crunch.
I am in the process of inviting quilters to join the bee. Check back in the next few days and watch the sidebar for a list of all the members!
Love and sunshine,
