Nurture Circle Quilts of do.Good Stitches

I haven’t been around for a while and I’ve missed the ‘ole blog! It’s also been even longer since I’ve shown the quilts I’ve taken part in with the Nurture Circle of do. Good Stitches group! As you may or may not know, I have been a part of this online quilting bee for years! I’ve shared the quilts I’ve made with the awesome women in my group. But it’s been ages since I’ve shown off what they have done!

As a reminder, this is an online bee with 10 members. 5 of us design and make the quilts. All 10 of us make a least 1 block per month, usually 2 or more, for the quilts. Then once they are done, they are donated to one of our group members who runs the quilt Charity in Texas, Covered in Love.

This quilt was the August 2016 (see, it’s been a while!) group quilt designed by Briawna at Purple Poppy Quilts. We were asked to make 8 paper piecing kaleidoscope blocks  with solids and low volume fabrics. The block we used were from The Quilter’s Cache website. And then she took our blocks and made this awesome rainbow quilt!

Next up, the 2016 September quilt…

This one was designed by Carla from the Modern Bias blog.  We actually used the Crosscut Block from one of my best quilty buddies, Debbie, over at A Quilters Table. Carla just changed the size of the blocks.

Not only did we send her our blocks, but we also sent her our left over pieces. We ended up having two quilts that month!

The second on we got from our extra blocks was a group effort with Carla piecing it and Gabrielle quilting it!

This one was design by our Texas friend, Kat, from Kat and Cat Quilts. And yes, the one who runs our quilt charity! This one is a stitch and flip block and we made a mini strip and flip block. Instead of ROY-G-BIV our rainbow was only a OY-G-B rainbow! You can find the tutorial on our group Flickr page.

And it came together beautifully!

And in February, Dhia, from Peach Patch Quilts, chose hearts!

You can find the directions to the big heart, based on Michael Miller’s Cupid’s arrows quilt, on Dhia’s blog here. The little ones are from a Cluck Cluck Sew tutorial.

This one reminds me of warm Nordic sweater (I think they are called something else, but I’m blanking on it!)! I love it!

And our last one for today is the March 2017 block.

March of 2017, Briawna chose to use a tutorial from Andy Knowlton for scrappy flying geese. We made two blocks, one with gray on the right and one with gray on the left. Then I asked them to keep the tiny scraps for an upcoming quilt!
