June Do. Good Stitches Blocks

This  first week of summer has been a busy one! Swimming lessons, three dance recitals, beach trips, youth conference send off, and I finished a t-shirt quilt (finally, I will share quilt with you next week:)! But I still had to get this month's Faith group Do.Good Stitches blocks done. I did them just in time! It was Debbie's month and she chose do use this tutorial to make a quilt just like this fabulous quilt!
Isn't it gorgeous? It was made by the Cheer circle and finished by Claire at Sewing Over Pins. Our assignment was to use like minded colors, orange, hot pink and yellow or red.
 I noticed Debbie had been getting quite a few orange blocks so I decided to make a hot pink one! For the center star I used a fun Paula Prass print that I've had for a while that had all the colors in it. And a pink swirly print that coordinated well.
 I didn't notice any yellow blocks so I thought that would add a nice light punch and I coordinated that with an orange star. Every time I try a new block I end up loving it and wanting to make a whole quilt of my own with it! But there is only so much time and WAY too many fun blocks.

Next week we are heading to St. George, UT for our annual 4th of July trip. Can't wait to be with my family, go to the rodeo, watch the small town fireworks and visit all the incredible quilt shops! The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the heat! They are in the 115+ range right now, yikes! I think I might melt.
Hope you're staying cool this summer!
