Siblings Together Quilting Bee. You In?

Siblings Together Quilting Bee.  You In?  UK based to save postage.  11 bee members (plus me).  Blocks to be made and shipped on time.  Quilts to be made on time so we ship all 12 before next summer.  Big simple blocks preferred (20" blocks to make a 60" x 80" finished quilt).  Eleven lucky bee members will get to play with fun new fabric lines ... more information to be revealed when the bee is formed.  Button and Flickr group to follow.  Applications in writing in the comments on this post.

  1. Oh heckity heck I'd love to do this but never been in a bee before...I'm not going to beg but would be delighted if you'd have me!
    I managed 5 quilts for ST last year and have only finished one so far but then our house is a building site at present!

  4. Hi, I'd like to be considered for the bee. Last year I co-ordinated a group quilt for ST for a teenage boy. We finished up with two quilts. I also made a quilt for a little girl and sent another quilt I had made but never used. Maria x

  6. Hi Lynne. I would love to be in this bee. I am a member of the Kinky Bees and have loved being a part. I am busy quilting one of the siblings quilts we have made and it is such a wonderful cause. Thanks Kate

  7. Just to clarify, you mean next summer. I would live to take part if I can. Currently finishing a quilt for ST, debating on how to quilt it... (Photo in the Flickr group if anyone wants to give me some ideas).

  8. Hi,
    I would love to be a part of this bee. I have never been part of a quilting bee and would love the opportunity.
    Many thanks

  9. I'd love to be considered for this! I've not been in a bee before and would love to be able to contribute to such a great cause. And from September I'll have loads of spare times on my hands as all my Littlies will be at school/nursery (ha! I'll have 3 days 'free' but that feels a lot compared to now!) and I'll just be sat around twiddling my thumbs.....;)!!!!!

  10. oops maybe need to say a bit more! I love bees and have learnt so much this year in the four bees I am in! Too many though so I will be cutting back when they finish from July.

    Really inspired to do more charity quilts and this is such a brilliant cause!

  11. I think if my calculationa are right, you still got room for one more??
    I love making anything for charity. I've already made one quilt for Siblings Together this year and would love to do more.
    I am good at being organised, so I would get stuff turned out on time :)

  12. I'd love to take part. I've never dared to join a bee yet. Although I keep being tempted. I'm loving doing the 2 matching ST quilts for this year so this would be a great challenge for next year. Keeping my fingers crossed to join in your fun.

  13. I will have a go if you will let me. I am in the UK.

  14. If you need a spare bee or an angel to step in for a month or so then I'll be glad to help. I could manage one simple 20" block a month but couldn't also manage to do my share of quilting/binding, etc. so it wouldn't be right for me to sign up but I'd love to be an 'emergency' bee if you need one...

  15. I would love to be in this Bee. It's not something I've done before and I don't have all that many quilts under my belt [yet] but it sounds do-able, I love to try new blocks, and if some-one else is doing the choosing of fabrics part, that's even better as that's the bit I find most difficult. x

  16. I'd love to join in but it seems you probably have enough people already!

  17. I'd love to join your bee. So far I'm in one bee, Sew-Euro-Beee-an, which was founded at the FQR last year. I'm also in the process of making a quilt for Siblings together as I think it's a wonderful charity.

  18. I'm in if you need me, but looks like you have lots of people already! Wish I had seen this earlier!

  19. I'd love to throw my name into the ring for consideration please :o) I love the challenges that bee blocks bring, and this is for such a great cause. For the last couple of years I've done a combined job on my contribution to ST, it only seems right I actually get one done from start to finish myself!

  20. If you are able to support 2 'hives' I would like to be considered xxx

  25. Ooh, I'd be really interested in this. I'll have 2 quilts done for Siblings together this year, think it's an amazing project and one I'm more than willing to give my time to. I haven't been in a bee, I'm a bit of a newbie but reckon I can do it. :-)
