I'm presently working on a 1930's flying geese quilt. I wanted to use up my 1930's scraps .... since I needed 1,700 rectangles I ended up making more scraps, as I had to dip into my stash! I tell you, my scraps multiply when I'm not looking. I can never see the bottom of those bins! Sigh! To make the quilt less daunting, I organized my rectangles into bags of 100 and another bag of 200 squares.



So far I have 1,000 flying geese pieced and squared up ... with 700 more to go! I love quilting!

Marcy, what an adorable door! I just love it!

Krista, cute bib! That kid will be stylin'!

Catch you later! Cheers!

Thank you Rachel and Krista. I love reproduction quilts from the Civil War and from the depression era. I'm always on the lookout for vintage fabrics.

I'm actually keeping track of the number of fabrics I will be using in this quilt.



Once I am done with making all of the flying geese I will count the fabrics. They will be part of the quilt's story.

I will be doing a blog entry on how I organize such a project. It can become daunting!

Catch you later! Cheers!

Carole I love the colors and hearing your quilting story.

Later today I will be cutting out two mini aprons to go on garden stakes to fly over two Boston Ferns for the Jubilee. When they are done my Jubilee projects will be completed.

Carole- Just from your picture it looks like you have quite a few different fabrics. I'm interested to see how many you end up using.

Sara- How exciting! I bet your mini aprons will look so cute flying outside among your Ferns!

Wow Rachel! When I fist looked at your picture I thought it was a stamp or something until I read your comment! That is fabulous script! You are so dang talented!
Do you actually use something called a brush pen?

Krista, I thought the same thing. I thought it was a stamp and thought I should try and find it at Michael's or Hobby Lobby!
Rachel, you should do that professionally!

I'm doing the 1 year of stitches embroidery on vintage hankies and making a quilt for my bed. I need 22 hankies. I completed January to March and ran out of hankies. Ordered more of Ebay. Then will pick up with the April block. I love working on it each night sitting on the couch and talking to my DH. He loves seeing what I stitch each night.

I'm putting the month, a inspirational word and our trips to the Florida state parks. Then add flowers, hearts and fun stitches to fill in the rest of the space.

Marsha, that sounds lovely! Can't wait to see some of them :-)

Rachel, is this writing similar to calligraphy?

Dena, I would think so. The trick I have found is to not think of what you are doing as writing, but painting curves and lines to make shapes. There are a lot of tutorials and practice sheets online. It takes some practice and about 4 times as long to write something, but my real handwriting is nowhere near as neat!
