Month 6 - this is my last bundle. have to make some flying geese. and assemble all previous work. with lots of pretty squares which look like applique but are not. was thinking this would have been done by now. but as i am only working on this in my weekly WIP class. maybe a few more weeks and i will have a quilt top.

i was delighted to receive my quilt. and see all the scrappy goodness packed into it. it measures 20 in. by 12 in. and those 4 in. stars have different centers. on the back is a pretty paisley print. a perfect choice. included were some red white & blue fat quarters. i have already washed them making them ready to use. my quilt was made by Diane Knott of Butterfly Threads blog. and she recently posted an adorable flag quilt block. i think i could use my new fabric to make this. hmmm. the quilt i made was sent to Karen Beigh of Log Cabin Quilter blog. and she posted pictures of it here. take a look. and the links of other quilts received by other participants are here.

here are Autumn Star block and Baking Day block. been buying snippets of Denyse Schmidt fabric. mostly those labelled DS Quilts which are available at JoAnn Fabrics. and looking for any scraps i might have bought in the past. and most importantly keeping them all together in a project box. spent lots of time trimming those teenie-tiny flying geese. you need to have Lori's newest book called Farm Girl Vintage. and all of the details for this sew along can be found on her blog.

so i haven't posted my first block yet. because i really don't like it. and will most definitely make another one. nothing wrong with it. just small amounts of the 12 i bought to start with. and when i bring in other fabrics i may weed some of these out. have you see this Hello Bear print with scattered dots. i saw Film in the Fridge use this in her most recent quilt. so you might say i had help in deciding on that one. and in Lori's post for week three i spotted it in her mixing bowl potholder. i will probably want to use this as a background again. but i have only purchased enough for this project. silly me. please don't buy it all before i get around to wanting more. because i am a little behind at the start. and because i have already picked my inner border. i have gone ahead with the prepping of my teenie-tiny flying geese. i am using ruler one in the QIAD mini geese ruler set. the initial cut and sew with this method is much easier for me. you need to have Lori's newest book called Farm Girl Vintage. and all of the details for this sew along can be found on her blog.
