Recently I joined two online quilting bees on Flickr. Fresh & Funky Bee-ginners and PBee&J Quilting Bees. This is how they work. There are usually 12 members (one for each month of the year). When it is your month, you mail out fabric and a pattern to all of the members and then they sew up your block and mail it back. What a great way to get a quilt finished!!
Have you ever been in a virtual quilting bee?

I have finally finished the baby boy flannel blanket before he was born!!!! I am very impressed with myself :)
I did quilt a little on the blanket... mostly straight line around the border and also around the star and moon. Once that was finished I trimmed the edges and started to sew the binding on. I always have to look up on the internet on how to properly attach binding. Thank god for the internet!!!
