Anyways, last Thursday was a sewing day for our group. Here are a few snapshots of that.

I have put aside my Stars quilt to make a quilt for a friend. He was wanting a quilt for Christmas, but that just wasn't going to happen. So I will start it and he will give a part of it as her gift. That'll work, I guess.
The quilt is called Double Duty and is found in Miss Rosie's Spice of Life quilt book. This is a must-have book, and really, really hard to find. Ask Colleen. She will have to break down and order it off Amazon.com. I have not taken a picture of it yet, but it is all flying geese and log cabin blocks made from my ten-year collection of Kansas Troubles. (I can't believe that I am finally using these fqs and I am giving the quilt away. Something I am bound to regret one day!)
|My groupings...20 large squares and 80 small squares|
|Sew 1/4 inch on either side of the line|
|Cut on the line after sewing|
|Press the light side open|
|Add another square. Sew on either side of the line and finally cut on the line|
|Press light side open and voila...four perfect flying geese.|
I have the first three sections done on my log cabin blocks. I should have been sewing, but I was here doing this tonight...
