Been busy over here. We have been working our little quilting fingers off getting ready for the upcoming Spring Shower of Shops. Our sample has been made and we are busy cutting kits. All that's left is to write our pattern. Well, officially write our pattern. In a form where you all can read it. This is my favorite piece of quilt making, if its not right after the time change or before a much needed lunch. My head gets all swirly with numbers and fractions. lol. Here is s snapshot of what I have been doing today and with fingers crossed, have not spelling errors (my biggest down fall) and that all the numbers are matching up.
I hope you are excited about this upcoming event as much as we are! We love seeing everyone on their week long journey and hearing all your fabulous stories. Well, I guess. I better get back to my pattern making. Enjjoy the beautiful juxtaposition of numbers that I see in my mind every day! Oh and by the way, I did make changes to what is shown on these papers.
Sorry about last week. I was so busy getting ready for the Shop Hop coming up that I forgot to post our freebie on our blog. I did manage to post something on our Facebook page. I am NOT going to repeat myself this week. So, here is this weeks give away item is from a local lady. She makes polymer buttons from her home and we have had numerous buttons from here. They are great for bags, accents or whatever you want to use them in. Gotta love supporting local business women!
Buttons By Margo: 4 pack
This is my first attempt of a video tutorial. I have posted a tutorial by Ricky Tims, his single seam flying geese. I have made these before and they are FUN and EASY! They are three dimensional which add that much spark to your projects! Give it a try and let us know what you think!
How to make a Single Seam Flying Geese:
1. Cut a light rectangle 3" x 3 1/2".
2. Cut two dark squares, 3" x 3".
