Celebrate Good Stitches!

Woa my gosh, I've published 3 posts today!  Yes, well, this is kind of a big event.  Thanks for hanging in there!  Ok, so you've stopped by the Voting post to choose your favorite quilt for Best of 2014 and you've visited the Quilt Pools post to enter your completed do. Good Stitches quilts or any charity quilt into those fab drawings.  What are we doing here?

Celebrate Good Stitches

Just celebrating with 24 giveaways!  

In case you're not in the loop, Celebrate Good Stitches is a year-end event to cheer on the work of do. Good Stitches {a charity bee}.  We started in 2010 and have grown into 24 circles, each making monthly quilts for a passel of great charities. The ideas is to combine the fun of a virtual quilting bee with a wonderful reason for being - to bless and serve those in need with a tangible expression of love.  This all happens over at Flickr, a free online platform for sharing pictures that's also great for organizing groups. If you're active on Flickr and enjoy quilting in a modern style, why don't you join us?  Next year, we'll be celebrating you!

Today we're celebrating the current members of do. Good Stitches, with members awards freely gifted by three of my awesome sponsors:  Fat Quarter Shop,  Marmalade Fabrics, Connecting Threads and Mad About Patchwork. If you want to support fabric shops that care about making a difference, these three would be a great place to start!

To make sure that everyone feels the love, Members Awards will be randomly bestowed upon 1 member from Every Circle.  That's a lot of prizes and they're good too!  Drumroll please for these winners, each selected by Mr. Random....
