Your quilt is just awesome. I love the pops of red. And my favorite heart is the denim one that is strip pieced. (Blues) I am sure your sister is just going to love it.
I saw it in a magazine once. But yours came out similar. But with so much more personality. It's really adorable. Love the border of fun pinwheels also.
This sounds interesting. Do you know if it attracts bugs like some starches do?
In a pinch make them the 3x6 inch size and then trim them to the size you want.
I'm traveling right now but when I get home I'll send you a chart to show how to make ANY size geese.
thanks,I'll try this.
just so beautiful quilting
I use corn starch.
3 3/4 cup water in pan and bring to a boil.
Mix 4 tablespoons cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water.
Slowly add cornstarch mixture to boiling water and whisk til blended. Simmer one minute and let cool.
Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and put in spray bottle.
If you want fabric crisper add extra cornstarch to the cold water 1 tablespoon at a time.
W e are in the same boat! I quite counting on ufo's at just past 30ish. I admire your goal of finishing 7quilts a month!!!!! Don't think I'm going to get that many done, probably not even half that. I look forward to seeing pictures.
Wow, you have a Lot on your plate!
Tell DH he gets to deal with the estimator, take some refreshments to your sewing/quilting areas and Lock the door. Leave a note saying do not disturb and if you value your life I can be served dinner after gently knocking on the door. Lol
I have been thinking about making it also.
I have to agree, unless it's a really bad mistake that I cannot stand to look at...I say...only God is perfect.
here's a picture of what this quilt looks like: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/410812797238961116/

I second the 8 at a time method. I use two 10" squares to make 4.5 unfinished hsts. After cutting but before opening, I trim any extra from the sides. It really speeds up the trimming if done before opening. Very accurate method - only thing more accurate is paper piecing methods such as triangle on a roll or similar. That is good if you only need a couple.
Love the colors! It's beautiful on that bed.
I'm an experienced piecer and found this tutorial awesome. Can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!
Looks like a tension problem. Test moving your tension dial ever so slightly and when you find the one that works best make a note for future reference. I should have said, the first thing to do is carefully re-thread the machine; both the top thread & the bobbin. Then play with adjusting the tension. Good luck!
If you do an internet search, Google or other, for "Tent Makers of Cairo" this may be what you are looking for. Good luck!
If it is a mechanical machine, it is most definitely a low shank. High shanked machine tend to be large computerized machines. When buying feet, you also want to look at the bobbin. If your bobbin loads from the front, you want a 5mm oscillating foot. If you bobbin loads from the top, you want a horizontal foot. Although in most feet the horizontal/oscillating difference doesn’t really affect anything, it can in some feet such as invisible zipper feet and 1/4 inch feet.
Wool batting is more expensive, but its worth the extra cost. Heirloom 80/20 is thick, but it pulls apart so easily. So if your quilt ever gets washed, that batting will disintegrate so much faster than a cotton or wool. Iíve been long arming for five years now and Iíve all but banned my customers from bringing in hobbs.You can tear holes in it just by looking at it! You always have the option of using two layers of warm and white, which I guess would be the same price as wool.
