Let’s Bee Social # 147
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
Announcing the incredible new Sew Fresh Quilt Bee!
In commemoration of Canada’s upcoming 150th anniversary in 2017, Sew Fresh Quilts will be hosting a quilt bee. This SEW FRESH QUILT BEE will be our way of taking part in “Canada’s Big Quilt Bee”. Our quilt blocks will be made into quilts for donation to the Ronald McDonald House charity.
For more details on the Canadian Quilter’s Association Canada-wide Quilting Bee click here. As participants, our hive we will be helping to contribute blocks towards their goal of trying to make 1000 quilts for kids at Ronald McDonald Houses of Canada. I am partnering with Rita of Fabric Please! for this very worthwhile cause.
To participate in this online Quilting Bee, we will be making slab blocks. As a shop sponsor, Rita will be supplying me with the fabric required to make the slab blocks in return for promoting her store during the Bee. She will be carrying the entire With Glowing Hearts line that is available for purchase here.
All the necessary information and instructions for the slab block can be found here.
The SEW FRESH QUILT BEE will run until May 17, 2017. The deadline for mailing blocks and unfinished tops is May 30th. Mailing information can be found here. You DON’T have to be Canadian to participate. But you do have to be prepared to mail your blocks to this Canadian address.
Each month I will be posting about my progress and will be providing a continuing linky party where participants will have the opportunity to link up and share their progress, as well. You can join in the linky party each time you have made blocks. You can link up from a blog post, Flickr photo, or Instagram post. That gives you seven opportunities to join in the PARTY!
Participants will eligible for giveaway prizes, supplied by Fabric Please!
