X Marks the Spot Block from SewCraftyJess

I'm the circle host for Cheer, the latest do. Good Stitches circle! I'm so glad folks post about their participation in these do. Good Stitches quilting circles. Otherwise I might have never known about this fun opportunity.

Essentially, Rachel of Stitched in Color organized an amazing way for sewists from all over the place to get together and make one quilt a month for a good cause. For our first quilt, we're following a tutorial that Jessica posted on her blog, SewCraftyJess. 

These blocks will end up being blue and white, and I can't wait to see them all as they come rolling in the mail. I'm the quilter for this first go 'round. 

It seems like I signed up forever ago to host a quilting circle, but I'm so glad enough people joined in to make a new circle this summer. There are some amazing quilters lending their talents to these quilts, and I can't wait to make beautiful work with them. If you're interested in participating in the next circle, check out the details on the main do. Good Stitches flickr page and sign up on the wait list.

I hope everyone stateside got to see some great fireworks last night!

I'm linking up with Somewhat Simple and The Girl in the Wild West.
