I am busy making a plan this morning of all the quilts I have in progress. I have always tried to stay focused on a quilt from start to finish, although there are times when the next step in the design needs some thought. This is when it is a good time to work on other projects for a while until I figure out how I need to proceed with the design. That is why I like to have more than one quilt in progress at a time.
This morning I find myself with too many quilts in progress at one time! They are all at a stage that they can be worked on and I love them all !
The first one is the BOM 2018 which I have almost finished the quilting, I only have the very last border to finish. If you missed this last year, you can find the full pattern for this quilt here. I have named this one Cherry Garden.
Then there is the Roses quilt, the last applique border has been designed and the first part is being stitched. I am also busy writing the pattern for this quilt, another part of my plan. You can read more about the Roses quilt here.
The next quilt is Euphemia, which I have temporarily put on hold last year and now I am dying to start on it again but I have miss placed it. ! How does that happen ? You can read about the Euphemia quilt here.
Last but not least is the quilt I just had to start from my scrap bin. I made the first two blocks over the Xmas break and I am hooked. It really has my attention. Oh I also decided while making this quilt that I would work on a little leader and ender nine patch quilt made form my scraps. ( The little nine patch blocks look so cute )
Can you see my dilemma !........... Where to start ! Which project do I choose....
So today I will make a plan to work on a bit of each quilt until they are finished over the next month. Fingers Crossed.......

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.
