VQBs (or online quilting acronyms)

Flickr, the Modern Quilt Guild, online fabric swapping—if these are a few of your favorite things (like mine!), then chances are you’re already well-versed in my most beloved acronym: VQB or virtual quilting bee. (Pbj is a close second!) Based on the concept of communal quilting but altered slightly for the internet landscape, the idea is simple: one member of a group of quilters sends out supplies to the other members with instructions for a quilt block. Each member makes a quilt block with the supplies and then mails it back to the original sender. The sender assembles and stitches the quilt masterpiece. And, of course, I have a few favorites…

Stellar quilt bee quilts? Yes, of course:
