Ever heard of the 3x6 Sampler Quilt Bee on Flickr? Well, a sister bee is starting up right now, to focus on modern blocks with modern fabrics, the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee.
Recognize that quilt block? Oh yes, that's from Kati, who happens to be in her local modern quilt guild with Amy, who started this awesome new bee.
To be a part of the bee, you must be an active Flickr user with a history of successful swaps as well evidence in your photostream of modern blocks made with modern fabrics. The group will close at 96 members, who will be placed into 16 different small groups or beehives. Each bee participant will be responsible for making 12.5" blocks from their stash for the five other members of their beehive, and in return will receive 5 modern blocks in the colors of their choosing.
Sound like something you're interested in? Hop over to the Flickr group to learn more and request to join the group!
