Winterwood Quilt BOM was inspired by the Antique Applique Quilts. Focussing the design around Wreath Blocks.
Winterwood Quilt has a combination of a larger applique center block and (12) applique blocks with an applique border and flying geese blocks to finish the quilt.
The pattern for the Winterwood Quilt includes directions for quick piecing methods for flying geese blocks, and invisible machine applique method that can also be stitched by hand.
Winterwood Quilt is a 15 month BOM. Each block will be available individually on the Pine Valley Quilts Website and also on the Pine Valley Quilts Craftsy page. All blocks will remain available through the entire 15 months, then the pattern will be available as a full pattern download for the entire Winterwood Quilt.
Finished Measurement: 72 inches x 72 inches
Over the years I have collected a large range of brown fabrics, mostly reproductions which I have used for the leaves.
The red fabrics I have chosen to use are from Minick and Simpson ranges, as are most of the background fabrics with a few added in from my stash.
As usual I have added a large selection of fabrics of the same tone for the background fabrics, red fabrics and brown fabrics but you may choose to use only one if that's what you prefer.
Here is my center block
The Center Block Pattern is now available 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.
