I have been dying to dig into my scrap bin and make a little ditty quilt from some of my treasured scrap fabrics.
I could not resist the temptation any longer and started making this cute three-inch Shoo Fly blocks randomly choosing fabrics for each of these beauties.
I think they look great set on point, giving me more opportunity to use more of my treasured scraps.
I have been thinking for a while what to do next and I really want to add some applique, so............... I decided to use more of my scrap fabrics already cut into one and a half-inch strips.
So far so good! Now just to finish the border strips and think about the applique design.
You can find the pattern for the finished quilt in my new book Autumn Bouquet here.

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.
