But an online quilting bee might not always turn out with the luck I had on my first. There are a few risks in joining a quilting bee.
Risk #1 – Quality Control
Risk #2- Missing Blocks
If you have been in a quilting bee before that didn’t go well, you may have a fear of being placed in a group of quilters that everyone starts off with tons of energy and excitement, but dwindles as it goes on. What if you choose a later month and people don’t want to participate anymore? What if you are in a group of 12 quilters, and you only receive 10 blocks? How are you going to make a quilt? These may seem like trivial questions, but they have been asked. We hope every group in a quilting bee gets along swimmingly and all exchange blocks for the duration of the project.
Risk #3 – It’s My First Bee
This quilt is from the first quilting bee I ever joined, and loved. Search the hashtag #moderninstabee2014 for great inspiration.
