What was your inspiration?
I was inspired to make "one seam flying geese" blocks, after seeing a video demonstration by Ricky Timms . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78Mu0C_QL8Y
What are you most proud of?
The soft Navy Blue upholstery fabric is a great choice for the colorful flying geese blocks.
I used multi color thread to add decorative free motion stitches (circles, spikes and triangles) to attach flying geese blocks to the exterior fabric prior to construction. I used multi colored thread.
I'll will work on something fun in polymer clay beads to decorate the zipper pulls. For the moment it is dreadfully plain with skinny little zipper pulls.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try the one seam flying geese block. Its easy and fun.
