My sister and her husband lived in NY last year and we decided to do our own type of quilting bee. We chose a pattern (wonky windmill) and fabric (Hunky Dory by Chez Moi for Moda) together over phone and email and then each made about half of the blocks for the quilt.
I mailed my blocks to Ruth who then sewed the quilt top together while I pieced together a back for the quilt. Then she mailed me the quilt top and I basted and quilted the quilt!
It was a fun team experience! And now our mom has a quilt made by both of us!
Of course, while quilting this one I did have some adventures. I sewed right into a safety pin from my basting and broke a needle! (Better a safety pin than a finger though!) So needless to say, I am quite careful about sewing too close to pins now!
