S.W.A.K. ... Something New

I recently started learning about online quilting bees.  Many of the bloggers that I glean inspiration from talk about different "bee blocks" that they're working on or sending out or receiving from their groups.  I really enjoy their creativity and am more than somewhat jealous of their extensive stashes.

Last week one of these bloggers gave a link to their group called Stash Bee.  I got over there and I think I got lost :)  In a good way ... To make a long story short, I ended up in an e-mail conversation with one of the "Mammas", found out they have openings and I'm taking the plunge.  Each month I'll be making at least one block and next June (2013) it will be my turn to submit a block and have everyone send me back their version.  I have no idea how I'll make that determination.  I look forward to the challenge of making quilt blocks I wouldn't otherwise touch and trying new color schemes.

Here's a taste of what I'll be working on for Danny's quilt blocks this month ...

If you're interested there are several openings that they're trying to fill right now, so it's a good time to jump in.  I really like this one because we use our stashes rather than mailing or requiring specific fabrics.  Hop on over and check things out ... their rules page is clear and you can browse past months to see what everyone was working on.  Hope to see you there ...


  1. yeah - really glad you have joined in - it's fun, and these blocks were a great one for you to start with xx


Thank you for stopping by! I love to hear from you. Come back soon!
