Happy Day! We have an extra day in February, thanks to Leap Year. And today is even more special because it's the last Wednesday of the month so it's Thimbleberries Sew Day. Visit Bejeweledquilts by Barb by clicking here and scroll down her sidebar to see who else is participating. Why not join us? All you have to do is sew today at your leisure on a Thimbleberries project of your choosing. If you want to register so we'll know who is sewing today, just contact Barb at her blog.
I found another Thimbleberries project in the house that I made years ago. It's a small table runner I adapted from a wall hanging pattern called "Home for the Holidays". It's showing its wear, but I still love it!
I started my new Thimbleberries project last month. I chose the Flying Geese Charm Quilt from Lynette Jensen's free patterns listed on her Thimbleberries web site.
I printed the pattern off and started looking through my stash for some fabrics. The quilt is nice and tiny, 31"x39", so only needs some charm squares and a few coordinating fabrics. I found a charm pack in my stash to use and started cutting squares and rectangles. The multi-colored fabric is primarily floral in greys, tans, roses, and some black.
Lynette's directions are excellent so in no time at all, I had completed the first 6 of the forty flying geese I need.
Today, I'll continue sewing the geese. If I finish them today, I'll choose the fabric for the binding and borders. I guess I should call them Canada Geese?
So you know what I'll be doing. What should you be doing? If you haven't already entered my GIVEAWAY for a little Schnibbles quilt top, backing, and binding, then please do it quickly! The deadline is tomorrow, Thursday, March 1 at midnight Atlantic Standard Time. To enter, you must go to my last blog dated February 26 by clicking HERE and leave a comment on that post. You'll see a picture of the quilt top and you'll get all the info you need. One comment per person please. Good luck!
I'm off to my sewing corner. It's a great day for quilting!
