Do you want to Bee with Me????

*** NOTE - I had such a huge response that I acutally created 2 bees but I can't commit to doing more than that.  Thank you for your interest.  I am sorry to say that the bee is full :)

So this year I participated in my first Bee (the VIBee's) and I LOVED it!!!!  It was so much fun and I learned something new with each block each month.  Sadly, this bee is not continuing next year.  But I so want to participate in another block bee for 2012.  So I thought who better to participate in a block bee with then all of you that I feel like I have come to know through Happy Quilting.

So what do you think??  Do you want to participate in a block bee for 2012 with me??  If so please send me an email to happyquiltingmelissa (at) gmail (dot) com with your name, where you live, and the answers to the following questions.

1 - Are you interested in a bee that when it is your month you
        A - Send your own fabric to the other bee members to make blocks with
        B - Have the other bee members make a block with their own fabric with colors specified by you

2 - Are you interested in a bee that makes
        A - Traditional Blocks
        B - Modern Blocks

3 - Are you interested in a bee that exchanges
        A - One block a month for 12 months
        B - Two blocks a month for 12 months

4 - Are you interested in a bee that exchanges with members that live
        A - Only in the US
        B - Anywhere

So that's about that.  I will determine the interest from the emails and go from there :)  Who knows, maybe we'll end up creating 2 bees :)  That would be fantastic!!!  Can't wait to hear from you :)
Pin It!


  1. I would love to BEE with you!! i am very flexible, it can be your choice as to whether or not to provide fabric. I would love to swap a modern block say one a month and of course I'm in Canada so I would say ship anywhere! Looking forward to hear from you! Susan

  3. I've been looking for a bee to join....
