So excited to post these quilt blocks! This is the first month for Courage Circle Do. Good Stitches. The quilts made for this circle will be sent to army hospitals on opposite sides of the country to benefit kids who have to be hospitalized with one or both parents gone on a duty assignment for the US Military. I am so proud to not only be part of this circle but to have worked with my dear friend Jessica to start it. Most of our circle is comprised of military spouses, former military members, military mom and some of the most kindest women I have ever had the please of sewing with.
Our first block is an Around the World block, tutorial by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. I’ve used this technique before to make my own trip around the world quilt and I love how quick and easy it is to do.
I cannot wait to see this quilt come together, the blocks that I have seen so far from the other ladies have been fabulous and fun. You can follow our progress on instagram on the #dgscouragecircle hashtag.
Have a wonderful and happy Wednesday!
What a great idea! That’s something I could get behind, too. I send a lot of children’s quilts to American Heroes for some of the children who lose a parent. I can only imagine (as I know you can!) how hard it is for a child to be hospitalized when a parent is far away.
