Bee Keeping: A Quilting Bee Calendar Download


There has been a bit going on here lately...unfortunately not nearly as much sewing as I would like. So the other day I was trying to come up with an organized way to remind myself of my bee/swap obligations. I came up with a mini calendar to hang up in my sewing room that includes a note section for each month to document my to-dos.


I made myself a rather plain calendar that I embellished each month with a little mini block. So while I can't promise my swap mama's that this will always keep me on time, hopefully it helps!


If you'd like to make your own Bee Calendar, you can download it here. This is my first attempt at google docs so if you can't download the document let me know. If you do make an embellished calendar, I'd love to see it... email me a photo or link to badlandsquilts@gmail.com . Enjoy!

PS: Play nice, this is for your own personal use and not for resale or distribution! If you post about this, please link back to me.

Thanks for the calendar. What a great idea.

Fantastic idea! You are clever though to be able to print it on (what looks like) thicker card and bigger than A4.. All I manage is putting regular A4 in the printer... Maybe I could glue it on cardboard?? You see... no commercial danger from me here! lol!

Great idea though and thanks for sharing!

That is such a fun idea--I can see making one in a group at the beginning of the year and swapping top blocks. Thanks for sharing.

Very creative idea and practical.

what a great idea. How fun! My method so far has been to do the bee block right when I get it...so I don't forget!! your calendar idea is less frantic sounding.
