Guess, what? I made my first block for charity! Anna Maria Horner hasn't announced it on her blog yet, but she's started her charity bee for Tennessee victims of a recent, very nasty flood. Her bee, Rainbow Around the Block, is just getting started and anyone can participate by making a 12.5" square block that's mostly monochromatic. Anna's posted all about the rules at her Flickr group.
I made this block last night using a variety of blush/coral scraps from Meadowsweet, Good Folks, Little Folks and Lecien basics. I thought from Anna's Flickr page that she wanted VERY monochromatic blocks. I wasn't very happy with my own block... maybe because it's a little too one-color. Today Anna posted some of her own blocks into the Rainbow Around the Block Flickr pool and hers are beautiful, of course. I'm glad to see that she used more variation in color than I, because I may make another block tonight and I'm going to have more fun this time!
P.S. Thanks for those of you who've contacted me to say you're up for a charity bee. I'm putting plans in motion and will let everyone know when Stitched in Love is ready for members!
