do.Good Stitches - January

About 6 months ago I put my name down on a application to join do.Good Stitches managed by Rachel of Stitched in Colour.  It took a while but about two months ago I got placed into the Care Circle (you might have noticed the button I put on my sidebar when I found out).  I was really excited to be involved with a bee since I have never done anything like it before.  The way this bee works is there ten of us, five Stitchers (who make 2 blocks per month) and five Quilters (who make 2 blocks per month, but twice a year they get to choose a block/quilt design, and make the quilt from all the blocks).  I was pretty bold because I put my name down to be a Quilter.  My turn is already coming up in February!

Anyway, for the January bee we had to make a red and aqua starflower block.  Here are mine, ready to post to Karen in Nthn Ireland (oh yeah, forgot to mention we are an international group).

So, how about telling me about your experience of quilting bees?  What advice have you got for me?
