It's starting to get holiday-busy around here, as we plan and clean and decorate - but thanks to the #mysmallworldsewcial quilt-along, I'm managing to get in some scrappy sewing every week! This week I did the easiest part of this month's blocks, the 2.5" x 4.5" flying geese. Each quilt takes seven of these blocks, and here are mine for all three quilts...
The next blocks I have to make are a little bit intimidating - nineteen 1.5" x 2.5" flying geese! I am thinking about paper piecing these - they are just so tiny, there's no room for error. So I'm thinking they might be more accurate if I paper piece them. We shall see!
And there's been lots and lots of great inspiration on the internet this week...
I'm not quite sure why I love this quilt, but I do! All those different blocks just make my heart happy.
And isn't this pretty? I just learned how to do a herringbone pattern, and now I want to make this one!
And this may be the next Christmas quilt I make - I just adore that giant snowflake! Paired up with simple patchwork, too - just perfect!
Have you all missed Crazy Mom Quilts as much as I have? I was so excited to see her pop up in my Instagram feed, especially with this beauty!
I seem to be on a patchwork theme this week, but isn't this cute? I love the scattering of traditional blocks in this quilt, too - it gives the eye a place to stop and rest.
Last but not least, an oldie but a goodie - this quilt is stunning in purples, isn't it? I could clean out a few tubs making these....
Inspired yet? Go forth and use. up. those. scraps!
