I have a quilt show that I will be working the rest of this week and I will be back on Wednesday, March 23, with how to put it together. Have fun cutting. See you soon!

I went shopping this morning at Joann’s and bought this for the quilt courtesy of my Dad. Isn’t it sumptuous?  IMG_2074

Sewing Instructions

Part 1

Are we up for a challenge?  I am using Nancy Cabot’s Geese in Flight pattern, an antique pattern from 1933,  and there are no written instructions available, at least that I can find, but I believe we can make it work with a little playing with what we have.   I did not realize that until after I had cut my pieces but using the grid that I have available, but I know that we can figure out the puzzle.  Please, if you find a mistake or have an idea, let me and the group know!  For those who have Block Base by EQ, you can find the pattern under Flying Geese or #4127.  Make sure that you have it set for 12 inches.

Okay, now that we have our pieces cut, it is important to keep the groups in order as this block is a little tricky and you will be using all the colors in one block.  I forgot to put my yellow in the picture, so you have 6 colors.   There are 12 blocks in total, but let’s just do one for now to make sure that it works.  While you get the groups in order, I will be setting up.  Be back at 11 a.m.

Sorry it took so long to get back, I had to babysit for a little while.

Anyway, here is how the first section of the block should look.  I still have to sew it together.  The rest is how the block progresses.  It is a 12 x 12 inch block.  I love the way it looks!  Hope  you enjoy it.  Will post later this evening after I get it sewn together!IMG_2141 (2) IMG_2140 (2)

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
