I cant believe I am organized and on the ball early today. I have had a design floating around in my head for a while and have finally committed to making it.
I found the perfect fabrics for this project at the Melbourne Quilt Market from Lynette Anderson ( Follow my Heart). I purchased a fat quarter pack and they are just so lovely. I am really looking forward to using these in this design. Lynette has always been a favorite designer of mine.
I have also found a great new photo editing site called Pic Monkey, don't you love what I was able to do with this picture. Such a lot of fun and so many options to choose from.
Well I bet you are wondering what this design is ? Well I have played around on my computer and come up with this to start with, the size of my quilt design may grow as I progress as there are loads of fat quarters in this bundle as it is the whole range so I am not limited to the size of the quilt.
I have thought of a name for this project. ( My Home Town ) I thought this would be a good tribute to the little town I grew up in.
I would love you all to follow along with me on this project and share each step, the decisions and changes I make along the way. I would love to hear your thoughts, ideas and comments.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, mine will be hopefully weather permitting filled with getting my garden into shape.
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.
