do.Good stitches

I made a quilting block for the first time in……forever.  I joined a waiting list for a charity quilting bee called do.Good stitches about a year ago and was just invited to join the WISH group this month :)  I am really excited, it is both my first quilting bee and also the first time I have ever paper pieced.

My good friends Jen and Amber helped me out in the fabric scraps and knowledge department.  It was so much fun to sew this block together!  The block comes from Freshly Pieced and is called Arkansas Traveler.

Fabrics are Kona and various scraps.  It’s a great scrap buster block!  Doing this simple block has sparked my interest in sewing again.  I am dreaming of more blocks to come.  Happy weekend.

    Cute block! Love the colors. I just joined do.Good also, my month to quilt was December so I’m having fun watching all the blocks come in!

This girl. See the condition of her face after playing at recess at school today.....and every other day. I decided to surprise her with some Peppa Pig for doing so well in school this entire week. Last week she got sent to the principle's office. Twice.
