I've been excited to share about something new!
Last year I stumbled upon a great blog: Stitched In Color. Rachel's blog is great. She has awesome tutorials and she is just fun to "listen" to. I noticed right away that she likes to give back - so much so that she created an online quilting bee called "do. Good Stitches".
do. Good Stitches is a charity quilting bee that makes quilts for all kinds of people in need: foster kids, battered women, kids in need, sick people, and more. It is a beautiful thing to make something for someone in need.
In December, I signed up to host a do. Good Stitches circle. Each circle has 10 members from all over the country. We are the Nurture Circle of do. Good Stitches. Our quilts go to My Very Own Blanket, a charity that gives blankets to children in foster care.
We started in January with a herringbone quilt! We followed Rachel's Herringbone Block Tutorial using cool colors. The Nurture Circle members mailed me their blocks and I got to piece and quilt it. It was so fun to see all of the blocks as they came in!
I backed the quilt with Amy Butler Love Water Bouquet in Midnight.
One of the things that makes me the most happy is making things for other people.
Being a part of do. Good Stitches makes me happy.
