Doing Good Stitches

I am currently the host of the CHERISH circle of do. Good Stitches {a Charity Bee} - we are an Australian group of stitchers/quilters that forms part of the wider circle of do. Good Stitches.  We make quilts to benefit our local communities with various charities being chosen by the individual quilter.  


We are quilters who enjoy working in a modern style and wish to use our resources to make something beautiful and practical for people in need. To find out more about do. Good Stitches and how you can join in, please visit our bee's community page do. Good Stitches on Flickr.

Belated Spring Clean

I spent a good part of Sunday tidying up my sewing room - it needed it, there was bits and pieces everywhere - I could not have cut any fabric if I needed to - a lot of bits were left over from when I made the bag for my friend, Joy.

I forgot to take a photo of what it was like before I started, but here it is now :)

The cutting table

The Project Storage

Now it's all neat and tidy, I can mess it up during the week :)

CHERISH do. Good Stitches - FNSI show and tell

Here is how I spent my first FNSI - I played with my 9 patches received for the November quilt for Cherish quilting bee - I finished sewing them up this afternoon (Sunday).

Rainbow 9 Patch

I am quite happy with this.  I had intended to do a disappearing 9 patch, but as I was laying out the blocks to photograph them, I had the idea to keep them as 9 patches.  I unpicked a few blocks in order to stagger the white squares.  Now to set it aside and work on quilting last year's quilt :)
