I started making Roses for a new applique quilt. So far I have the first block completed, with a plan in my mind as to what I want the completed quilt to look like. Yesterday I sat and drafted the next part of the design and I cant wait to get some time to start making more Roses for the next stage.
I have been using the freezer paper applique method shown on my youtube channel, this method seems to be working a treat with no need to wash the block after I have finished it.
I have taken a few progress shots while making the first block, you can see how fabulously messy it gets when choosing fabrics for the Roses. I love that creative mess that happens while lost in playing with fabric.

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.
