Finished!!! by the Faith Circle of do. Good Stitches. Our baby quilt is off this week to bring sunshine to the life of a new young mother in need.
All the colors of sunrise and birds singing sweetly... may the precious baby girl, still yet to be born, see many such rosy mornings!
And, by your miracle, the binding was sewn on with nary a gap in the stitching. Thank-you, thank-you for telling me to press the fold before pinning!
I am so thankful, so blessed and so proud when I stop to consider what we have done with do. Good Stitches in 5 short months. I am thankful for each of you who have joined in to give of your time and fabric to do this work. We have grown from the first circle that launched in August to a new total of five sewing circles. With each circle making one quilt per month for charities, that's a lot of people we will be blessing in 2011!
And, really, there will be so many more! Our wait list is loaded, so I need to gear up to launch yet another circle. If you're interested in joining in, now's the time! I always especially need modern quilters to plan and finish our projects (as well as participate in making blocks). Read about how our virtual charity bee works and visit our Flickr page to fill out the New Member's Form, if you'd like to join.
Oh, and an extra special thanks to my sponsor, Sew Fresh Fabrics, for donating the backing for our lovely little baby quilt. It's available here by Valori Wells.
May you be blessed and be a blessing in 2011!
