Meg's Block for Amy
Hi Everybody -- First of all, I think I've received all of my Flying Geese and thank you all so much! The different fabrics, sizes and configurations will all make for a really fabulous and unique quilt. I won't have time to put it together until later this summer, but I promise photos as soon as I start the design process.
I had a lot of fun working on Amy's block this week. It's technically challenging, but I like that kind of project. I've never pressed the seams open for any quilt; initially, I was skeptical but I found that it helped a lot in avoiding twisted seam allowances. Fabric selection was the most fun part for me. I have a plastic storage box the size of a large trunk with tiny bits of every quilt I've ever worked on and it was a blast, looking at fabric that I haven't seen for many years. Amy, each bit in this block originated in another one of my quilts, so every piece is special (well, at least to me!). You will notice just a few bits of the oh-so-lovely 'red squares' from my son's quilt that I finished just last week.
Can't wait to see how it all comes together in the end! xo Meg
