Description

I am a member of the Cheer Circle for Do Good Stitches - a bee group on Flick which donates quilts to children in need. Each month I will be making 2 blocks and donating them to the group to make a quilt.

January:
Brandy is our quilter for January and she requested three blocks of "rugby stripes" using this tutorial. She wanted bright fabrics...and I thought Kaffe Fassett fit the bill. I used some strips from one of my hand made Jelly Rolls to create my blocks which measure 7.5 X 14.5.

February:
Mary asked for Stashbuster blocks. They used very tiny squares...but they were pretty fun to make!

March:
Thanks to my bee group for making my blocks for this month due to a family emergency.

April:
Amber asked for some modern style log cabin blocks - one using cool colors, the other using warm colors.

May:
Sarah is planning to make a postage stamp quilt and asked for low volume and jewel prints (these blocks use 2.5" squares and finish at 12.5" square.

June:
We had this month off :)

July:
Brandy requested low volume geese in a circle using a white background. She wanted us to piece the four quadrants for one block and leave the quadrants for the second block unpieced.
