January do. Good Stitches


I just got into the Cheer circle of do. Good Stitches.  I've been on the wait list for a while, and I'm pretty excited to join this group.  I've seen some of the quilts that they've made pop up in my Flickr stream, and they're some of my favorites.  The Airplane Quilt they did back in July is amazing.  


This is the first block that I've made for the group.  It's the Antique Tile block from Fresh Lemons.  I love this block, and was halfway through sewing the first one when I realized I've done this block for another bee, and loved it then too.  Clearly, I need to make a whole quilt of these for myself.

I'll be sending them off tomorrow (yay for turning in assignments early!), and I can't wait to see what our quilter does with them.

February is my turn to pick the block, and I had decided on the economy block from Red Pepper Quilts.  I've had so many of them in my Instagram feed because of the sew-along, it's like subliminal messaging to make them.  But now I'm not so sure I want to use this block, since I'd need everyone to make at least four.  Sure they stitch up fast, but that's a lot of blocks for a bee.

What do you guys think?  Any other block suggestions?

Linking up with Blossom Heart Quilts for Sew Cute Tuesday!

  2. I love the color choices in this block - a favorite block on my "to do" list is Trajectory found on the Monkey Beans blog - a truly modern block and versitile

    1. Trajectory is on my to do list as well! (Or rather pinned to a never-ending Pinterest board.)

      I think I'll have to save that one for myself, though. After putting it all together and quilting it, I doubt I'll be able to give it away.
