A new quilt buddy is a friend at work who works remotely. It has been fun to introduce her to all things quilt related both online and locally. We haven't yet joined or started a bee but I can see it coming in the future!


I have not joined a bee yet, but at the moment I am busy with a pink quilt for my neighbour...


My quilting bee is the entire Wyoming State Quilt Guild!


My quilting buddies are the members of our local guild. Christmas presents and items for our annual auction are current projects.

I am a newbie and don't have any partners yet! I'm having to hand sew due to my recovery from shoulder surgery. Starting physical therapy in the morning and I get my brace off in two weeks!!! Then look out! Quilt-a-thon!!! Thank you for holding the give-a-away!!!

Cindi Alexander

My quilting buddy is my best friend. Right new I am working on a quilt called "giggles" for a silent auction at a fundraiser for a school for language and hearing disorders.


My quilting buddy is my friend, Barb!! We have created and stitched several quilts together from her home on the East Coast and from my corner of Iowa!! The book would beeeeeee very fun!!!!


Unfortunately, I have not found a Bee opportunity in my area. I hope to get a little more outgoing in the new year. Maybe that will be my New Years resolution. The book is on my wish list!

I am new to this site. My two favorite bee buddies are Janet & jeannette. This week I am working on a few quickies for a craft show this weekend. Also cutting rather sorting from stash strips for a log cabin quilt using a new square up ruler.

My best Friend, Kay who live clear across the U.S. from me is my best quilting Bee Buddy!

Margaret Schindler

My sister is my quilting buddy We quilt by long distant telephone. We send photos of how we did a project to each other. We make things up as we go. When she sees an easier way to do something I give it a try and the same the other way around.

Kathy C in OR

My friend is Viann. She always inspires me to 'get going'.

Janet Best

I haven't ever participated in a quilt bee, but I have wanted to forever!!
I am working on a quilt right now for my son who is in his first year of college that he can put on his dorm room bed.
Thanks for the giveaway!


Pick me. Pick me! I am lucky to have several sewing buddy and all of them are awesome. My best friend, the guild members, my granddaughter(s) and my virtual craft night ladies on google+ to name a few. Round Robins and block exchanges are so awesome. You can try a block once and if it speaks to you then its a possible entry for the to do list. If not, then you haven't wasted extra time or fabric.

My favorite bee buddies are my fellow members of Western Reserve Quilters in Cortland, Ohio. We are a small guild and we had a great time making a "Learn a Technique-A-Month" quilt. From newbies to "old hands" everyone learned something new. If I win this book I will find a project to make and enlist everyone to buy the book and quilt along with me.

Linda Batz

Angela Smith

We don't actually have a bee, but we have retreats twice a year and we will generally have a block swap and bring our tops and or quilts back for the next retreat. Our last retreat in September we had 30 in attendance and 20 participated in the swap...

I would love to have new patterns for future retreats....

kathleen soman

always wanted to participate in a quilting bee and this book looks like a good place to start

My best quilt bee buddies are my friends in a private internet bee. I am currently working on a large machine applique projects and fabric postcards for a postcard exchange.

Diane S

My dear friend and I may not get together as often as we like to, texing pics is wonderful in keeping track of what we are working on.

Melissa Gerber

I can't choose just one quilting buddy -- I have 8 quilting buddies all with their unique personalities! I am currently working on a Halloween wall hanging. It will probably end up at my niece's house.

Cindy M

Two of my grandsons are my quilting bee buddies. They help me choose colors and designs for each member of the family. They make better color choices than I do. LOL. I couldn't do it without them.


my quilting buddy is my best friend, we sew every sat together and tend to like the same colors and patterns. We take a pattern or kit and work on it till done, we do lunch and dinner if need be and we do this at my house. I think we would be lost without each other.

Susan K

My sister is my favorite quilting buddy. I'm teaching her how to quilt and she's making me think about my quilting purchases! She makes me realize that I have more projects than I have time and that's a good thing.
