If you are interested... Stitches {a modern charity quilting bee} is looking for a few good quilters/stitchers.

"If you enjoy quilting in a modern style and would like to add your stitches to our efforts, all you need is an active Flickr account (since that's where we manage the bee) and a willing heart.  See "The Rules" so you know how it works and go here to register to join.  When we have enough on the wait list, I'll put together yet another new charity circle.  Hurray, hurrah!" (Per Rachel Hauser at Stitched in Color)

I have personally been involved with this bee for the past few months and have had so much fun!

Here is how it works...each "hive" consists of stitchers and quilters.  The stitchers do just that...stitch.  The quilters get all the fun...they choose the block for the month that all the members will make and then send back to the quilter who then, obviously, puts the top together, quilts it up and then donates it to the groups charity.  My group is making quilts for Project Linus.  

Each month you will make 2 blocks.   Here is a sample of what my group, Harmony, has been up to since we started in September...

So if you are intersted go here and click "join" will then be contacted by the group administrator Rachel Hauser and answer a few questions.  Easy peasy!

She is looking for a few good quilters/stitchers who want to join in this fun and giving bee!  Are you interested??
