As promised, here is a really short post briefly describing or linking to a more thorough description of the following terms:
- Quilting Bee – here is a great Flickr discussion by Erin- Two More Seconds. She does a wonderful job of explaining what a virtual quilting bee is. This could be easily translated to a “guild” quilting bee.
- QuiltAlong – here is the link to the Modern QuiltAlong where participants make any quilt from the book “The Modern Quilt Workshop”. After you click on the link scroll down to the “About Modern Quilt-Along” and read the explanation. This could be adapted to any book, pattern or fabric. Any theme.
- Block Exchange – A theme is chosen. Each participant makes one block for each exchange member. The blocks are “due” by a specific date and given to a coordinator. The coordinator sorts the entries so that each participant receives one block from each member.
