do. Good Stitches June Blocks

I've been a busy little bee over here. I finished the pillow for my secret partner in the Pillow Talk Swap. I can't show it to you yet because I don't want to spoil it for my partner. As soon as she gets it I'll make the big reveal over here. I also started quilting the table runner for my partner in the SUTK Swap. I have to say I am becoming a big fan of spray baste and variegated thread. What I can show you today are the blocks I made for Natalie. June is her month in the Hope Circle of the do. Good Stitches Bee. She asked for two spiderweb blocks using Raspberry and Chartruse as our colors. I didn't have any raspberry and only a little chartruse in my stash so it was an excuse to buy some.

I adore this color combo. I think it's delightful. And the fabrics that I got to add to my stash thanks to these blocks are so yummy. Seriously I am thinking about making an entire quilt from this combo. Aren't they delicious?

do. Good Stitches is a great way to give back to children in need. Our circle benefits Threading Hope which provides blankets to children in need worldwide. Please check out the group and sign up if you're interested in joining as either a Quilter or a Stitcher. We're always starting new circles and looking for a few good sewists!


  1. love these blocks! did you use a tutorial? and yes, the colors are wonderful! :)

  2. I totally snaked this block and color combo idea from Natalie for my bee month! She told me its fine, but secretly probably thinks I'm crazy :)

  3. love those colors! Your post last time inspired me to become a quilter. I was already a stitcher. I'm already up next month - eeek!
