It is such a dreary day today, after the glorious day of sunshine we had yesterday. It has rained all night, I love the sound of rain on the roof while I am snuggled up in bed warm as toast.
Today I have the fire going and the crockpot on with a lovely stew. The only thing left to do is sit at my machine and quilt. Gotta love days like this.[caption id="attachment_1595" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Too wet to garden[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1594" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Deary Wet Day[/caption]
Somehow even tho the weather is awful living by the water there is always something worth looking at.[caption id="attachment_1593" align="aligncenter" width="293"] Red Block Challenge[/caption] Today I will finish the quilting on my Red block challenge, the challenge is RED and it is a twelve inch block. This is my effort, now to finish it and send it off. The challenge is with 'Aotearoa Quilters' I have not entered in any challenges before so this is a first for me. It will be really interesting to see what everyone comes up with.
Looking forward to your comments
How to press a Flying Geese Border ? This is the question I was asked so I have done my best to answer as it is not exactly what you might be expecting to see. Read more to see how I pressed the seams to get nice flat intersections.
Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
