I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Well, I have been working, a bit slowly, on my first attempt at a flying geese pattern quilt. The major distraction has been those darn little triangles that you cut off to make the blocks. I couldn't just let them go to waste. So, I matched them up, sewed and pressed them, and then started chain stitching them together thinking they could make a nice border, or a cut backing embellishment. After realizing I had almost 400 units, I thought it might make a nice little quilt. Mean while, the main quilt sat on my cutting board in various stages of done, silently wishing I would stop ignoring it.

Now my Dad and his wife are here for a visit.  This weekend is the start of our beloved Champlain Valley Fair. The kids are stoked, the tickets are bought, the ride bands are waiting for wrists to hug....and Irene is threatening to ruin it all. And what I say to all this is....BRING IT IRENE....BRING IT!!!


  1. What a fun project with your saved triangles. I'll bet they make a nice quilt.

  2. Thank you for stopping by! I can't decide if they should be a border, a backing embellishment, or a tiny quilt...oh the choices!

  3. Looks like a good start on the flying geese. I put a top together for a lap quilt this summer. They seem to take forever to piece, and then suddenly you find you have too many of them, LOL!

  4. Very true! I think that is the case with anything related to fabric (except maybe the thought of owning too much...is that even possible???). I will post the pictures as I get the top done...I'm rather proud of myself as I found a way to use the little triangles in the quilt top. Yay!

  5. E' una gioia per gli occhi questo blog!
