Member of do. Good Stitches {a charity bee}

Since December I’m a member of do. Good Stitches {a charity bee}.

We are a group of modern quilters that does quilts for different charity organisation. I’m very happy to be part of this group. It’s great to be able to contribute helping people in need. At the same time, I love doing blocks, but not necessarily to do a whole quilt on my own. I love trying out new blocks each month and working with different fabrics, colors and prints. So, I find it’s a good way to have fun and be helpful.
do. Good Stitches has now grown to many circles. Each circle makes a quilt each month. I’m in the Joy circle. Our circle makes quilts to benefit foster children through My Very Own Blanket, as well as quilts for cancer survivors through Canadian-based Victoria’s Quilts. I’m in the circle as a stitcher. This means I get to sew two blocks for each quilt made. Some members of the circle are in as quilters. They are the ones who design the quilts, assemble the blocks and do the quilting and binding.
For my first month, Elaine asked us to do airplane blocks following a tutorial at badskirt. We were asked to do the planes in primary colors and used a blue-ish color for the background. For do. Good Stitches we generally use fabrics from our stash. I didn’t have much in those colors, so I did a little stop at the fabric shop. Here are what my airplanes looks like.

I finished them up yesterday, just in time for the end of the month. I hope they will fit nicely with the other ones. I can wait to see what the entire quilt will look like. I do hope it will make the future owner happy!
