Quilters "Block????"

Help, I needed a project?  A quilting block???  Had it finally happened?   And so the piecing began, I'm making flying geese.  In case you hadn't noticed, flying geese and stars are my "go to's."

This picture made me laugh, I must of snapped
a it while I was walking around the sewing room.

I always sew the scraps on flying geese together for a matching border... love it!

Hope you are enjoying a great weekend.  Happy Stitching!

Reily Quilt

It all started here, with this little swatch
 of fabric swirling around in my head!

I'm making a quilt for a grand nephew to
celebrate his first birthday.  Grand nieces
and nephew popping up all over the place
these days!

I thought, I'll put his name in it, and a 1 for the
birthday boy.  And I was off to the races!

How about a Mary Lou cupcake?

And maybe some stars????

And YELLOW!  This quilt is definitely yellow,
not usually my favorite, but it's great here!
It really gives the quilt the pop I was looking for.

Quilting now and a finish by the end of the weekend!

It's not perfect, but it's DONE!

I know why I usually stick to quilting!  I promised a friend a bag months ago and finally "got around to it."

As you can see, made with scraps from "Dia de los Muertos." 

And a matching lanyard...

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
