Wildflower Pattern giveaway winner !!
Yay! The winner of the Wildflower PDF pattern giveaway is Joy Meetis
I loved reading all the comments, it's fun to see what part of the quilting process you enjoy. Quiltmaking has something for everyone.
I have many favorite parts...but the part that gets me really going is the design process. I love to play with ideas, work with color and fabrics, sometimes the quilts come out completely different to the image I have in my mind. They seem to take on a mind of their own lol. The process of making decisions along the way is the fun part, sometimes a quilt needs a little rest before I decide on the final outcome. I also find that the more I have learned about the techniques I like to use the more confidence I have when it comes to making those design decisions. I love to incorporate applique in my quilts, but there are quilts where I have not needed to and I love them just as much. I also love the piecing process and love small pieces as much as I love larger pieces, learning to piece with an accurate 1/4 inch seam and quick techniques for pieced units has helped my enjoyment of the piecing process. Then there is the quilting......daunting tho it might seem, once I get into quilting a quilt I can not stop. Learning to quilt my own quilts has been one of the greatest pleasures of quilting. I use my domestic machine and all tho there are times when I am daunted by the thought of quilting a large quilt, I have learned so much by perseverance, trial and error, and dogged determination.
I hope you enjoyed sharing your stories!

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.
