My do.Good Stitches quilt is finished!!!!!
I really love this quilt!
For about a year now I have been a member of the do.Good Stitches Bee on flickr. I really love being part of this bee. Each month we make a couple of blocks for a quilt that goes to good cause. I'm part of the Joy circle. August last year was my first month where I designed the quilt that was to be made. I showed my lovely Joy ladies this mosaic and this sketch and referred them to this great tutorial. I asked them to make 2 blocks. They could choose to do girls or postage stamps, and it looks like they had a lot of fun making them!
Every block I received is just gorgeous, and I have to show a close up of some of the girlie blocks that were sent to me. I am so touched by the thought and detail that has gone into them
Look at the bow in her hair, and her pet duck!!!
Love the flared dress on this girl :)
I think this girl is off to a wedding - look at her fascinator!!!
this one actually has birds on her arms and head like Mary Poppins!
Look at those spaghetti straps on her dress!
My quilting is more than a little bit dodgy, obviously I need a LOT more practice, but that's okay. I didn't make this for inspection by the quilt police. This quilt destined for Project Linus and will go to a sick child in hospital in my local area. Hopefully a little girl will be too busy falling in love with all the wonderful details in this quilt to notice the wonky quilting :)
A HUGE big thankyou to all the lovely ladies in the Joy circle, and to Rachel who runs do.Good Stitches
