I've been the host for the Peace circle of do. Good Stitches for a year and a half, and I'm so proud of the quilts we've made.
If you're not familiar, do. Good Stitches is a group of online quilting bees (put together by Rachel of Stitched in Color). Each circle has a host, four quilters (the host serves as a quilter too), and five stitchers. Each month, one of the quilters chooses a design and posts instructions for her quilt. The stitchers, quilters, and host make blocks from their stashes and return them to the quilter. The quilter finishes the quilt. For more information on do. Good Stitches (including information on how to join), visit the Flickr group.
Our circle sends quilts to My Very Own Blanket, an Ohio-based organization that provides quilts to children in foster care. We have made some gorgeous quilts for this organization, and I thought a gallery was in order!
Without further ado...behold, the Power of Peace! (Sorry...I'm watching too much Power Rangers.)
