I hope you are all busy starting block one for the BOM 2018. I can't wait to see your progress.
I have my fabrics chosen in very traditional colors for this quilt. The gorgeous Turkey red I have used for the circles is a lovely fabric I got from Margo at reproduction fabrics.com here
Margo has a fabulous selection of reproduction fabrics its worth taking a look, I'm sure you will find all you need and if you are like me a little extra too.
I have started making the applique pieces, making all those circles using my favorite method shown in this video here.
I am definitely going to change that fabric for the center circle.......
I am still thinking up a name for this quilt. If you have any ideas I would love to hear it, let me know in the 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.
