Busy bee

I've been debating joining an internet quilting bee for a while. I really liked the idea of creating quilts with like-minded individuals but I wasn't sure that I wanted to add to the piles of quilts already in my home. So, when I came across do. Good Stitches, a charity quilting bee, it seemed to tick all the boxes. I contacted the founder, Rachel at Stitched in Color and was assigned to the Comfort Circle, which is made up of sewers from across Western Europe.

For January, we are making rocketship blocks based on a pattern from Cloud 9 fabrics. Here are my two blocks, now completed and on their way to the Netherlands where they will be joined by many more and made up into a quilt. I'm really looking forward to seeing them all together.
