I made these recently- actually I think I had the centers made for a few at least, but I finished all six.....
Which will join these six. Now onto making the flying geese sashing. Do you have a favorite method? Does your method depend on the finish size you want to make. These are fairly big so I plan on doing them traditionally, with two triangles and a rectangle. The original antique quilt had 4 patches as the cornerstones. This is a busy quilt and I love it!
I've rotated to my next hand project which is new! Ranette generously sent me her
Scandinavian Christmas pattern when she was done with it. It was a whole lot smaller than I thought so she has given me a lot of good tips too. My grandfather is from Denmark so I love all things Scandinavian, including this precious wallhanging! This is block one. I need to make a few more little churn dashes that go between the blocks. They are so cute I couldn't help but forge ahead and make one.
Cathy B from Big Lake Quilter sent me this adorable bag. It has a little velcro closure- it is perfect for keeping my thimble, thread, small scissors and glasses in. It is also a perfect reminder that spring really will come soon. Thank you Cathy!
PS I have made a few cosmetic changes to my blog. If you experience any difficulties with it loading or anything else, please let me know. There are a few blogs I have trouble with and it can be very frustrating, especially if you have limited time.
