Believe Circle Halfway Through The Year

I was enjoying looking back through the blocks that have been made for the Believe Circle in the first half of good ol' 2014 and thought it would be fun to share them all in one post. So, here's half a year plus one month in review.

In January, Sarah, from {no} hats in the house, set us up with these paper pieced blocks that turn into beautiful feathers when combined with other blocks.

In February, Allison chose blue and low volume half square triangles. Allison was quick with her finish. I love seeing how the blocks transform once they are all put together in a quilt. Check out Allison's Flickr page to see the finished project.

March brought us some Greek Cross blocks by Vanessa in red and yellow.

Nicole asked us to make these awesome scottie dog blocks. She just finished putting the top together so check that out on her Flickr page.

It was my turn in May. I asked everyone to make some improv stripe blocks. You can see how it turned out here.

We started circling back through the group again in June, and Sarah designed these fun LOVE blocks for us to make.

Laura was up for the first time in July and she picked a scrappy square in a square block in a fabulous color scheme.

In addition to a devoted group of quilters who are responsible for stitching blocks every month along with the design and completion of a quilt two or three times a year, some of our group focuses on stitching up blocks each month. Our stitchers are Lisa, Ben, Jennifer, and Meg.

I've had the privilege of hanging out with this great group of quilters for a little over a year now. They are all absolutely inspiring and I am thankful to be able to share quilt making with them. Our finished quilts are sent to My Very Own Blanket, an organization that makes sure each quilt is given to a foster child in need of something special.

Can't wait to see what the second half of 2014 brings.
