What's on Your Worktable Friday?...Tiger Lily Fabric too....

Snowball and flying geese blocks sewn together!

Blocks for my 'sampler', shoo-fly and pinwheels next.

'Tiger Lily' fabric came in the mail, for sashing, backing and binding.

Happy Friday-Weekend!!!!

Lots of work got done here this week. I finished the snow-ball row and the flying geese row, from my Craftsy class by Amanda Jean Nyberg, 'Colorful Scrap Quilting.' I'm taking the class to 'keep in shape', to study up on what makes a good quilt instructor. I've kept to the prescribed directions pretty much but the 'wonky' temptation is coming on strong and I think I'll have to go 'wonky' on the shoo fly blocks, and the sashing will measure differently too.

The fabric I ordered to finish this quilt came in the mail from Connecting Threads. The strawberry colored 'butterfly' fabric will be backing, the pink 'girls in trees' will be sashing and the yellow 'flowers' will be binding. Or maybe I'll change my mind and switch it all around.
The fabric is by Heather Ross for Windham. I love her designs.

That's what I've been working on. Please pass the ice-tea and turn on the air-conditioner!

Stay cool and relax!!!

    1. Thank you, Queenie, if you put 'dull' in the middle of sparkle it 'magically' starts to sparkle,
      I've seen that happen to people too.

    1. Thank you, Kaja.
      That would look amazing, a whole quilt of flying geese. I imagine by the time it was finished I would be a whiz making them up.
