A ROAD TRIP AND BEAUTIFUL QUILTS

A ROAD TRIP AND BEAUTIFUL QUILTS

Last week I wanted to be outside in the beautiful day, but I really needed to be cutting the pieces for the mystery quilt cut. The “squirrel” won. Um….how about a road trip and beautiful quilts thrown in. After all, there will not be many of these nice days for much longer. Six Christmas quilts were chosen to go along and get their photos taken. We ended up in Sullivan County, Indiana. My trusty side-kicks (AKA hubby and grand-daughter) are…

NIGHT FLIGHT (or a Flying Geese quilt)

NIGHT FLIGHT (or a Flying Geese quilt)

Flying Geese is a well known and much loved block among quilters. The pattern is fairly easy to make and can be arranged in other ways beside the traditional Flying Geese quilts. I like darker backgrounds, and thought that “Night Flight” (or a Flying Geese quilt) was a good description of geese flying through a night sky. According to some books in my personal library, this setting is called “Dutchman’s Puzzle”.  All the “geese” in this quilt are Jinny Beyers…

THE GREAT MIGRATION QUILT

THE GREAT MIGRATION QUILT

The Great Migration Quilt is simply a combination of two sizes of Flying Geese blocks. The blocks are left-overs from two previous projects.

The two rows of smaller “geese” have 20 blocks in each. They did not quite fit right so I ended up adding about…

FLOWERS & TUMBLERS (or scraps are taking over my world) part 3

Background of Flowers & Tumblers quilt: FLOWERS & TUMBLERS (or scraps are taking over my world) part 3 – I have been trying to use only scraps to make quilts during 2019 and am making a dent in the two boxes of scraps. For this quilt I was inspired by a row quilt that I hand quilted for a customer this past summer and thought that some sort of row or section quilt would be fun.

FLOWERS & TUMBLERS – Part 1

FLOWERS & TUMBLERS – Part 1

Flowers & Tumblers quilt looks great, but it did not start as a cohesive quilt idea. It started out as an exercise in frustration because fabric scraps had gotten out of hand and were taking over my sewing area. This quilt will require more than one post, so here is Flowers & Tumblers part 1. Something had to be done to stop the flood of scrap piles on the floor, on the shelves, and generally in my way. Do scraps…
