Bees for 2016!

It is that very exciting time of the year: time for the bees!  This year the bees will start in February and will run for six months.  Each member will have a chance to be the Queen Bee for a month.  When you are the Queen Bee, you will be choosing the block designs, deciding on the fabrics and colors, and collecting two blocks from each quilter in your bee. We are going to ask each quilter to make two of each block.  

For the first time, we are also asking one person to be the Beekeeper for the bee.  The Beekeeper will collect the extra handout for us to save, and keep track of who has turned in their blocks and who may need an extra reminder.  We had a very successful first year but a few people sadly did not complete all of the blocks.  We hope each quilter who signs up will work very hard to complete all of the blocks.

These are the three choices for the 2016 Bees:
