I just joined my very first Quilting Bee! It’s the 4×5 Modern Quilt Bee on Flickr. I’m actually super pumped about this. We are assigned to a “hive” and make 5 blocks of our choosing for 5 people with their choice of color scheme. Then we all exchange. At the end you’ll receive 5 unique blocks in your requested color scheme. Plus, I’ll probably make one for myself so that would be 6.
They are 12.5″ blocks and it renews quarterly. I’ll probably sign up a couple of times so I’ll have enough to make a full Sampler Quilt.
I’ve also joined a couple of Block of the Month Clubs. Whee! It’s already March but I figure I have plenty of time to catch up. I can handle 2 blocks a month. I’ve already done my practice block and January block for Lucky Stars. It’s my very first time paper piecing and I really like it. It’s nice how precise and exact your lines and points can be.
I’m not sure what I was afraid of. I’ll definitely be updating my Carnival Time Pattern to be paper pieced.
Since I *just* signed up for the Sugar Block Club (like 10 minutes ago) I haven’t received anything yet. Can’t wait!
