Hi BonnieI had already done another quilt out of the same fabric line (Moda Chateau Rouge) and this was done using scraps from a layer cake and charm pack. Did not have enough fabric to do the outer border so had to use some cornerstones.
Have finished my quilt top using the string flying geese and embroidered blocks.
To make sure I made best use of my scraps I cut the centre strip for all of the blocks and laid them down on the paper first to make sure I had enough of that length. Each strip in the quilt has 23 flying geese, so 69 in total.
Thank you so much for the tutorial for these geese. A large portion of my machine embroidery now sets alongside patchwork techniques in each project I do and you are largely responsible for that.
I have also just subscribed to the digital edition of Quiltmaker and can't wait for the next issue to come out. The digital edition is by far the most economical way of getting this publication if you live overseas. In fact before I look at any magazine now I check to see if you can get a digital edition.
Many thanks once againBe sure to check out Vicki’s blog to see what else she has been up to! I think her idea of ordering digital copies of the magazines is great!
Tonight I’m getting ready for a bit of Downton Abbey and some binding stitching.
It’s been a great weekend to be home!
