My Festival Post
I am so excited to see everyone turn out again for Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! It’s been a pleasure to watch all the quilts pour in on the linky. The linky will be open just a couple more days, hopefully everyone that wants to, will have a chance to link up!
My entry is my recent finish – Burst of Spring.
I’ve developed a love of flying geese, and found myself drawing different blocks all with flying geese, this one had to be made! I was asked to develop a pattern for Blend Fabrics, with Spring Promise fabrics, and I knew that it was a match. The soft floral fabrics each take a turn being the center of attention in the star, with the white print background setting them off.
Have you tried making flying geese? They are not as hard as you might think! The technique I’ve adopted, uses squares, and leaves no waste – perfect! I love this pattern to the point that I’ve made it again, well almost…I have the blocks completed, but not pressed. I have a quick deadline that needs to be met first, then I will continue on with these -
This one measures 3 1/2″ and it’s as adorable in person, as on your screen! The block is super versatile – and I added 4 sizes to my pattern, just in case you need to make some teeny blocks.
With this quilt, I’ve decided to take the time and make a quilt, just because. I don’t do that very often, but it does need to be done on occasion, and I know that a reason for it will become apparent in time.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying the show -
