After several months on the waiting list, I became a member of do. Good Stitches! I am beyond excited. (In fact, after I got the official flickr invitation, I had my blocks made, posted, and sent within a week. I never work that quickly on anything!).
For those who don't know, do. Good Stitches is a charity quilting bee organized by Rachel of Stitched in Color and coordinated through Flickr. There are 20+ subgroups, called circles, each made up of 8-10 people. Each circle is assigned a specific charity organization to which it donates quilts. Every month, one person in each circle picks a quilt block design and color scheme for all members of the group to follow. The members send their completed blocks to the person who selected the design, and she sews it all together, quilts it, and sends it off to the charity. So each circle donates one quilt a month (or thereabouts).
I've been reading about this group for awhile on all the blogs I follow, but it wasn't until December that I felt I was skilled enough to join in. Now, I am an official stitcher in the BLISS circle! I'm going to use this page to document the blocks I make each month.
