do.good stitches

I did the January blocks for the do.good stitches Care Circle today - we're making 12.5" square starflower blocks in red and aqua and used a tutorial from Modify Tradition - really cute block and since I did the Blogger's Uber-Fest blocks I've discovered I love  half square triangles :)

I've just bought a few half yards of red and also a red and aqua bundle for my stash as I'm doing a blog hop with Madame Samm in April (was to be February hence the red!) so that was handy when I found out the starflowers needed to be red and aqua.

The aqua in the first photo is from a Half Moon Modern fat eighth bundle that arrived this week and the red is Pimatex Basics Red Lovely Circles.  The aqua in the photo above is Aneela Hoey's Little Apples that was in one of the Blogger's Choice FQ bundles from the Fat Quarter Shop - the red in this photo I had in my stash so can't quite remember !

I'm really loving the Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Club at FQS - I've discovered some fabulous fabrics and new designers - Pat Bravo being one - I'm using two of her fabrics for the Modern BOM at Sew Mama Sew and it probably would have taken me longer to discover her if I wasn't in the FQ club!  It's also handy to get 15 fat quarters each month especially now that I'm doing a few swaps and bees.


  1. These look good! Love the colours. And just look at those lovely points!

  2. Hi Leanne - so happy to be in the Care Circle with you - I love your blocks!
