It is August and I should change the little wall hanging on my wall. The July wall hanging will have to hang there until I go back to N. H. later this month.
The Moda Blockhead pattern came yesterday. I didn’t like it. It was too plain.
Who says that I have to sew the block as they designed it? With a few tweaks, I think this is a much better block.
The Simple Sampler 2 block came today. It was very easy. I really do like making flying geese. There are so many ways to make a flying geese. The Lazy Girl flying geese used to be my favorite way to make one. Now, I prefer the Kimberly Einmo flying geese ruler. Deb Tucker also has a flying geese ruler that I hear is very nice. I’ve never used it. These flying geese were made by cutting out a rectangle and then sewing squares on the diagonal on each end. I try, at first, to make the blocks with instructions given by the designer. At times, I use my own methods.
I have started to quilt “Melissa” today. I drew a pattern that I liked. Then I copied the pattern with a water erasable marker. When I took the pattern away, the marks disappeared as I looked at them. The water in the hot and humid air erased the marks. I changed the pattern and quilted part of one block. I think that I might like the new pattern better anyway. At least it is a start and I know what to do with that quilt.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
