Scrappy Bee – Round 7

by Julie Hirt

Signs ups are OPEN!





We use Quiltville’s Scrappy Trip Along the World tutorial using 6 fabric strips. The block you mail needs to measure 12.5″. It is very important that we all use the same tutorial and follow the pattern.

Quilt shop quality fabrics. You are receiving quality fabrics, make sure you are sending the same. This mainly means no Joann’s or big box store fabrics, with a few exceptions like Kona, Denise Schmidt and Juliana Horner. If you are questioning a fabric, ask the recipient or your group.

Mail your block out by the correct date. I know life happens and sometimes gets in the way. But, if you say you can’t mail out your blocks in time and your group sees you posting photos of other projects, it’s one of those “umm…” moments. You know? Just be considerate.

There are 6 people per hive, you will make 5 blocks and receive 5 blocks.

When you sign up you may suggest yours blocks be made with color preferences: dark center strip, no black, low volume, brights, etc. Do your best to honor your hives preferences.

Need to be willing to ship internationally. There are quite a few international members and that’s what makes this fun and truly a “Scrappy Trip Around the World”.  It can be expensive and I do my best to limit the international members to 2 per hive.

The rounds take place 4 times per year:

  • Sign ups May 1 – 6 | Must be mailed by July 15
  • Sign ups August 1 – 6 | Must be mailed by October 15
  • Sign ups November 1 – 6 | Must be mailed by January 15
  • Sign ups February 1 – 6 | Must be mailed by April 15
