Flying Home Quilt | Pine Valley Quilts

My Flying Home Quilt is in the latest Quilt Mania Magazine issue No: 118

How exciting it is to see my quilt in this beautiful magazine.

You can find the Quilt Mania magazine here or at your local quilt shop.

The Flying Home quilt is a very special quilt to me. I made this quilt from a selection of French General Fabrics and a few fabrics from my stash scattered in the mix. I had not long arrived home from a fabulous holiday with my two son's, my youngest son had was currently living in London and had been there for three years. We toured together and visited Paris for a week, as well as Ireland and parts of the UK. My youngest son was returning home to live later in the year and was touring for three months on the way with his girlfriend. My inspiration was to use the French General Fabrics in honor of our fabulous visit to Paris and use the birds in the air block as I thought of my son and his girlfriend flying home. I wanted to use mostly neutral fabrics, using as many neutral fabrics I could find in my stash. I fell in love with the sashing fabric, this fabric gave the quilt the lift it needed.

Happy Stitching

I have been missing in action for a few days....... do you get withdrawal symptoms when you don't get to sew?... I do. Seriously I'm addicted!

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.
