NYC Metro Modern Quilters Guild

Bee Etiquette

  • When you are Queen/King Bee, try to mail out your block instructions so they arrive at the beginning of your assigned month, so everyone can stay on schedule.  Remember to largely include the necessary fabric as not everyone has a huge stash to work from.
  • Try to complete each Bee block within the month it was received and return your finished block promptly.  If you are unable to finish on time, be sure to contact the Queen/King Bee to let them know.
  • There are no set rules around returning unused fabric or being asked to use fabric from your personal stash - these rules are usually set by the Queen/King Bee within her instructions.
  • If you are unable to make blocks that another Queen/King Bee has sent you then it is good Bee etiquette to return the package of fabrics back to that Queen/King Bee so they can make the block themselves, should they wish, and so they will have enough of their fabric to finish their quilt top.
  • Don't be shy about contacting your Queen/King Bee if you have a question.

    Before a rotation begins the Bee Leader will rule on what will happen if people leave the Bee after receiving Bee Blocks for their own month as Queen/King Bee and before completing all blocks for others in the Bee. In the absence of a ruling from the Bee Leader then it is down to the goodwill of the people within a Bee to work this out between them. 

Maria G is considering setting up a new Bee that will create charity blocks.
