Do.Good Stitches March Block
I am in love with this block. Love it, love it, love it!
This was our CARE circle's Do.Good Stitches block. It was requested by Kat of Diary of a Flutter Kat to be donated to her local charity, Blankets of Love. I really like what Kat does with this group, so this is not my first contribution.
We used Kat's tutorial, but modified it to use 5 inch blocks instead of 4 inch. This made each block nearly large enough to be a baby quilt of its own.
I tried to use blues, greens, purples; all boy-ish colors. I always feel bad for the little guys as we girly quilters tend to flock to reds, pinks, yellows in our scrap piles and create feminine quilts. So, this one is for the little men out there who need a little help keeping warm.
Thanks for organizing this month, Kat! I really enjoyed this one.
