Hello quilting friends! I hope you all had a joyous holiday and are excited about the coming New Year. I’ve been thankful for a quiet December. Besides enjoying time with family, I worked on my 2020 calendar, read, wrote project lists and goals, and watched some favorite old movies. I also did a bit of sewing, which I’m sharing with you today.
I’m making a looooong runner of Flying Geese blocks that I intend to hang in my living room. I only have two of the eight 12” blocks completed, but the construction is easy peasy. I hope to have the whole thing done, including machine quilting and binding, by the end of January. (Ummm . . . maybe don’t hold me to that deadline, but I\’m sure going to try.)
Most of you know how partial I am to the Harvest Road collection by Lella Boutique for Moda. It was the fabric of choice for my two newest patterns: Star Watch and 9-Patch Pivot. I am also using it for the Bloom-Topia sew along with Fat Quarter Shop. No doubt I will use every last morsel of Harvest Road that I have tucked away in my fabric closet. (Note, two of the fabrics in my Flying Geese blocks ~ the taupe gingham and the taupe scallop ~ are from previous Lella Boutique collections.)
The inspiration for this project comes from the Furrows block and Harvest tablerunner in Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage book. My runner will be much longer than the sample in the book, as my finished project will be comprised of a whopping 256 flying geese!
That’s all I have to share today . . . well that and a happy note that all of my patterns are 25% off now through January 15, 2020. No coupon code is necessary.
Thank you all for your support and quilting friendship this past year. I wish you the best in 2020. Now go and get carried away quilting!
