Happy wintery Saturday!
We haven’t had much snow for the past several winters in Oregon, but we are making up for it now! Over the past 2 days, the snow has been pretty constant and we are nearing the 1-foot accumulation mark. The snow looks so pretty falling down from the sky, but I am glad that we only experience this much snow every 4 or 5 years.
While I was sewing some flying geese today, my 8-year-old noticed a flock of beautiful fluffed up robins trying to take shelter in a tree in our background. I took these pictures through the window of an upstairs bedroom. So beautiful!
For the Star Light Star Bright QAL hosted by Melissa, our assignment this week was to sew flying geese. I am making the 9 block baby sized quilt so I needed to stitch together 72 pairs of flying geese! These geese went together so quickly using Melissa’s no-waste method.
Here are my flying geese all lined up!
If you want to know what fabrics I’m using for the QAL, you can read about my selections here.
Since we’re snowed in today, I’m going to keep sewing on my chevron units for Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice quilt. I hope to get these units finished up this weekend.
Enjoy the snow!
Wow those geese are spectacular!!! I over the colors which are so modern and fresh with such a classic quilting unit!!
Gorgeous geese and what a lovely shot of those robins! They looks warm with all their feathers fluffed up!
Your geese look so pretty all lined up. Great job on getting them all done. I am so glad you loved the method, it is a favorite of mine 🙂
