Last week I machine quilted my flying geese quilt 50" x 70".
I'm naming it Flying Fiesta!
There are 2 significant "keys" to this scrap quilt as far as organization. Can you figure them out?
The backing is pieced with a few odd bits. It almost looks like a flag.
Here are my sample quilting blocks and thread.
I'm giving this quilt as a special gift, so I'm happy to have a rag ball souvenier.
Mr. Fun and I went to a family memorial in Iowa City over the weekend. It involved flying to Chicago and driving 3 1/2 hours. My hexagon take along doll quilt project is MIA at the moment, so I grabbed this:
It is a reproduction (photo of original on the left) counted cross stitch sampler. I have been at it for about 20 years. Seriously, 20 years. Shameful.
I keep thinking "if an 8 year old can do, I can do it."!!
I started this so long ago, that I could actually see it to work on it. (see tip of the day below for a follow up). so I perch my glasses on the end of my nose, but then have to tilt my head way back to see the TV. ha ha, this getting older thing is hilarious!
So I've marked where I am with the scissors. Oh dear. I may be amending the pattern to finish in my lifetime. I do love the house and it will definitely make it.
Get a professional to replace the stripped screw in your glasses. Now mine are basted and I keep seeing the pin out of the corner of my eye, lol.
We have found a beautiful new home in CT and plan to move mid-June. Thanks for your continued support and encouragement!
