Framing Day


  Pineapple in lovely rustic colours. I love using Moda Fabrics.
   The above quilt pattern shown is called Flying Geese
   and the blocks are only 1 inch square. This little quilt has
   208 little pieces of fabric all sewn back together.
   How pretty is this pattern which is called New York Beauty.
  I love using bright batik fabrics for this little quilt, the blocks
  are only 2.50 square.       

   The Red School House, this is always a popular
   quilt given as a gift for teachers.

   Snail's Trail. Interesting pattern reminds me of
  an Escher tessellation.

Peaceful Piecing.

Here is a peak at a Flying Geese pattern.
Let's see...120 blocks at 1.5 inches each...
13 pieces of fabric per block making it a total of 1560 little teeny tiny pieces of fabric. Completed the quilt is about 19 3/4 by 16 3/4. 
I love scappy quilts.  

 Lou is always a willing work surface.

I think this is an Edyta Sitar pattern from Laundry Basket Quilts but I'm not certain, one of those quilts that stuck in my head and I knew it would make a great miniature quilt.
