do.Good Stitches ~ Joy circle

I've recently become a member of the Joy circle of do. Good Stitches {a Charity Bee}.  I'm quite excited about it!  I was in one bee this past year, which was pretty good but I have to say I enjoyed making the blocks for each of the other members SO much more than when it was my own month, and I had to choose a block and send out fabric, etc.  So now, I will be a stitcher, working out of my own fabric to make a block or two each month which will be made into quilts for charities.  I like this idea much better!

I was set to start in March, but also offered to make a couple of February blocks if they were short this month.  We were to use blue/red/white/gray in the design seen below.  Here are my two blocks:

Really nice!

Your blocks look wonderful! And I totally agree that it is much more enjoyable to just make blocks for someone else. I think you'll really like dGS!

Great fabric choices. What a great cause and wonderful use of scraps!
