Sew Sisters Quilting Bee 2015

I started a quilting bee this year with some of my quilting friends! There are nine of us participating in this bee. All of us were first quilting blogger friends until we met in real life at our annual quilting retreat in July 2010. It’s great to have real-life sewing friends, even though we live far apart. We are Cindy, Amanda Jean, Rene’MichelleDoris, Mary, StephanieShelly and me.


We started in February with the first block for Cindy, a dresden block in bright fabrics. I finally cut into my stash of Cotton + Steel basics to make this block.

Cindy also asked us to make signature blocks, which are always fun to whip up.

We are sharing our ideas and blocks in this Flickr group and on Instagram using the hashtag #sewsistersquiltingbee, if you’re interested in seeing our progress.

Happy sewing!
