October, flying geese BOM, Boy's Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This is my first attempt at "quilt as you go", after checking out a bunch of uTube demos on how to quilt as you go. I also checked out Leah Day's site of machine quilt patterns. I chose Day 266 - Sea oat flower. For my main block. I watched the video several times and then tried it. I also down loaded Melody Johnson's, (free) e-book - handbook of really free motion machine quilting designs. and chose page 14a as the patern for the center block. For the joining strip I made up my own pattern and I drew the patterns on with a sharpened bar of soap. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the journey. The Learning is fun and is well worth th effort.

What you will need

  • The sports flanelete in the flying geese pattern was given by Cowley United Church. The blue cotton material was given by my neighbor
  • Sharon Harison. It was a large window valance. The small grey print came from when my car was loaded with material
  • by a bunch of my friends when I went to Lethbridge for my check up. The thread came in that stuff as well. All materials are recycled.
