I thought I would categorize myself as a more modern quilter. Something edgy with lots of colors and patterns (bring 'em on- the more the merrier). Today I had the opportunity to make a more traditional block (actually blocks) for another quilter, Fairly Merry- in our Christmas Quilting Bee exchange. WHAT you say, Christmas already- hey, you can never plan too far in advance. Mary ( aka Fairly Merry) chose a Russian inspired block and even provided the pattern and then went to the awesome trouble of cutting all the fabric, which actually made the sewing of her 2 blocks rather fun. Here are the results. I did learn a better way to handle geese and always, I'd love to know what you think.
