Introducing the Anzac Bee

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

I have been plotting and scheming. While admiring all the wonderful virtual quilting bees that are going on at the moment, I wondered if there were any local ones. It appears, so many are only open to residents of the US and international postage from NZ can get quite steep. I got to thinking and the Anzac Bee was born. This month we are kicking off 8 months of bee hive activity spanning between New Zealand and Australia.

To see our progress, you can visit out flickr group here. To read more about some of the individual members you can visit the Australian members below:

Fellow New Zealand quilters were a bit slow off the mark to reply to the flickr messages on Quilting Bee Blocks, so I convinced some of my friends from the Tuesday night quilting group classes to join me.

To get the ball rolling, I am first up. My fabrics should be in the post tomorrow and they look a lot like this:

    Also, thanks for your vote and comment on my post:) I was going for the bright yellow, then there was a change of plans. I just did a new post, and a new poll too, plus a giveaway. I am the worst decision maker ever lol!


Your comments make my day. I would love to hear from you.
