Putting the Bee in Christmas

Pin It

So, two nights ago while I was laying in bed listening to my husband snoring, I thought, "I'm going to start a Christmas bee!"  (even though I'm already in two).  I wanted to get a Christmas quilt (or 2) done, but sometimes my project ADD gets the best of me (you know, make 2 blocks and then be ready to move on to the next thing).  I figured for the same amount of work, I could get other people to join in!

I got up too early the next morning to talk myself out of it, and emailed some bloggy friends to see if they'd be interested.

They were!

Our little bee is starting next week, and we will be done by Thanksgiving, so we can actually enjoy our Christmas quilts. :)

Here are the ladies I can't wait to work with:

Karrie @ Freckled Whimsy

Natalia @ Piece 'n Quilt

Is this a bee in that you all will do blocks for one another and exchange them? Waiting for that answer AND the answer to the earlier question, can others join in?
