Virtual Quilting Bee

Recently I joined two online quilting bees on Flickr.  Fresh & Funky Bee-ginners and PBee&J Quilting Bees.  This is how they work.  There are usually 12 members (one for each month of the year). When it is your month, you mail out fabric and a pattern to all of the members and then they sew up your block and mail it back.  What a great way to get a quilt finished!!

Well, I just finished the first block, Chrissy's spiderweb block. What do you think?  I can't wait for her to sew all of the blocks together and see the finished quilt :)  My month is February and May... I'm already thinking of what colors and pattern I want to do. 

Have you ever been in a virtual quilting bee?


  1. What a wonderful idea! I haven't participated (or even heard of this before). I'd love to get a quilt that way, but worry my quilting wouldn't be quite up to par for all the real quilters on their months :)

  2. Hi Cindy - What a lovely quilt block! I love the colors you used. They look so good together!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think that the variety of coleus next to my cana lily is called "dipped in wine", but I'm not 100% certain. Hope that helps!
