Virtual Quilting Bee

I'm nesting pretty hard.  The day after our roommates moved out I found I was urgently scrounging up the two baby magazines I've unwittingly acculumlated because alluvasudden, I needed to see pictures of people who had successfully used a peachy orange color on their nursery walls.

As part of that, I've been drawn to something called a Virtual Quilting Bee.  There is a great explanation here.  Basically, 12 people gather via the internet and every month they make just one quilt square for someone else in the group.  So, when it's your month, you send out  11 packets of fabric and you get 11 quilt squares in the mail.  Add your own and you've got a sizable quilt.

I know that I've got a lot on my plate right now but I'm really being tugged by this idea of creating small pieces of art on a schedule for other people.  I've learned to pay attention to these artistic tugs.

I know there are some quilters out there.  Would any of you like to join in this project with me?  Let me know by sending me an email or commenting on this post.

Yay for art in the midst of chaos!

Hi PrincessMax!

I am interested in joining your virtual bee.... Is it for beginners, too? I am busy on my third quilt top.

You are definitely welcome. I can't figure out how to email you directly based on your blogger profile. Will you use the "email me" link from my site or find me on Flickr as princessmax?
