Beginner Block Bee

The We Bee Learnin
Beginner Block Bee

Guidelines

*This will be a 12 month beginner block Bee. (You don’t have to be a beginner, but the blocks are going to be easy)
*Open to international sewers
*We will be using fabric from our own stash to make the blocks
*All blocks will be 12.5x12.5 unfinished
*There will be one bee leader each month. This person will pick a beginner block and on the first day of their month provide the rest of the group with instructions on how to piece it via blog post, email, flicker, or snail mail. They will also notify the group of what colour combo they want. (You can be as specific or as vague as you want about colour choices.)
*By the last day of the each month the block requested will be mailed back to that month’s bee leader.
*Each monthly bee leader will receive 11 blocks plus one that they will have to make on their own for a total of 12 blocks
*At the end of 12 months each bee will have 12 completed blocks to turn into whatever they want. Also if you make an extra of each months block then you will be able to create a sampler quilt as well.
*Since this is a late starting bee if we have to wait a few months to start then that will be okay. We can just double up on a couple of months and still end up with 12 J

I hope that all makes sense....this is both my first bee and my first time hosting a bee!

If you are interested in joining or have any questions please e-mail me at saskriver at hotmail dot com. Once we have enough bees’s to create the group I will set up a flickr group

Also if anyone know anything about setting up buttons and would be willing to share their knowledge let me know :)
