Celebrate Good Stitches ::Winners::

Celebrate Good Stitches

Hurray, hurrah!  Three cheers for good, and most specially for the quilty good happening through do. Good Stitches {a charity bee}!

Today I announce the final winners for this year's Celebrate Good Stitches.  But, before I do, I extend my gratitude to every single member of do. Good Stitches, past and present.

You all really are worth celebrating!  What an honor and inspiration to be joined by so many willing and talented hands to do. Good.  I can tell you that this experience is what I'm most proud of in my bloggy career.  I trust it's as or even more meaningful to many souls the world over who have been touched by our quilts made in love.

Best of 2014!

Congratulations to the Grace circle, whose I Spy ABC's quilt stole the day!

I Spy ABCs Quilt. Grace Circle {March}

This beauty, quilted by Robin Correa (who is also host of Grace circle), was donated to My Very Own Blanket to benefit foster children.  Can you imagine how a lonely, displaced child might have felt to receive this unexpected gift?  I'm proud of Grace circle and of all of us for making such beautiful, modern quilts to bless others in this world.  It means a lot, I believe, to give our best work. 

Thanks to the generosity of Robert Kaufman, each current Grace Circle member will receive a a gorgeous big bundle of Kona cottons, colors specially selected by Emily Cier!   Hey, you all might want to do an all-solids quilt next time around!  Or, you know, find a place to display your rainbow stack for happy vibes.  We won't hold it against you if you just need to look at it for awhile.

Quilters Grand Prizes

What fun to browse through our gallery of 2014 finished quiltsI've been super-pleased to see lots of quilts finished over the past few months as we neared the celebration deadline and the deadline for our QuiltCon special exhibit (those results to release soon).  Sometimes setting a date makes all the difference! My heartfelt thanks to those quilters who pushed to finish up projects.  For even more of our do. Good quilts, see the Finished Quilts group on Flickr!

#2, the amazing Boat Beach Quilt quilted by Eva-Marie Beij for the Comfort circle.  This gem of a quilt has so many fabulous paper pieced blocks.  Such a stunner!  Eva-Marie, there's a $100 gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop headed your way!

We are very grateful to  Robert Kaufman, the Warm Company and Fat Quarter Shop for generously supporting charitable quilting.  And again, thanks to everyone who plays a part in this worthwhile effort.  Let's keep up the good work, friends!
