I am going to start a virtual quilting bee. 1. Because I am addicted to swapping and 2. I love making quilt blocks 3. It will be a great way to get to know some like minded people.
I have come up with 2 ways we can play this. Vote for the option you would prefer in the comments and majority rules.
Ideally we would have 12 players and each player gets a month. For your month you let everyone know what color scheme/ theme you would like your blocks to involve and we each make and mail you 2 (this # is open for discussion) blocks. You pick the size. If you had certain fabrics you wanted to incorporate you can mail a scrap/fat quarter/whatever too each member and challenge us to incorporate it into our blocks. This step is an option but it would be interesting and help your finished project feel cohesive.
You would make one block per player each month. So if we have 6 players you would make 6 blocks per month. If we have a lot of interest it might be hard to customize a block for each person each month but we could pick very broad themes. OR if we could collectively decide upon a central them/color scheme that would make it easier. I am open to suggestions.
What do you think?
