Yay!! Printing this out now!! Cant wait :)

JeanieG 07-01-2020 10:23 AM

Thanks for doing all the work to get this started Carrie! It will be such fun to work with everyone again on this project.

Midwestmom 07-01-2020 05:03 PM

I have just ordered my book. Can someone give me fabric requirements so I can order and be ready to go? Thank you.

carriem 07-02-2020 04:06 AM

Midwestmom, this is a scrappy quilt so there aren't exact fabric requirements for the blocks themselves. I personally bought a FQ pack (40) and then some yardage to go with it.

For the Queen size it says:
Border and binding fabric 3-5/8 yards
Backing fabric, 8-3/4 yards of 42-44"


For the Lap size it says:
Border and binding fabric 1-5/8 yards
Backing fabric, 3-5/8 yards of 42-44"




juliasb 07-02-2020 06:52 AM

Though I am not joining you this will be fun to watch the progress of each of the players and see how these quilts come along.

happylab 07-02-2020 09:04 AM

Okay, thank-you for answering my questions from previous thread, reference fabric yardage. I printed out our schedule. I have my book, yea and it was early, double yea. Next week I will sort through my scraps and stash for fabric selection and wash fabric. I’m so excited about this project. I decided to make mine a queen size with added inches for the final size border to fit my king size. I’m wanting a wide king size close to 120”.

happylab 07-02-2020 08:30 PM

I have a question. How many flying guess are we making total? I found the directions on making them, which I will use my own method, if the measurements match up. I just need to figure out how many.

carriem 07-03-2020 02:27 PM

I will respond on this thread too for those who are wondering...

I am pretty sure it says on those pages...I know when I printed mine it says to print 1 of the first page and then so many copies of the 2nd page...

Ok I just looked it up and for the queen you need 64 units for the lap size 48 units...

carriem 07-09-2020 11:22 AM

******For those paper piecing their center block*******

I am working on mine today. Just a suggestion to help save a little fabric. I recommend renumbering G1-G6 and making the biggest section (G6) #1...then just go down the section. Same for C1-C6; I1-I6; and O1-O6...this will help save fabric. I cut the biggest piece 1 1/4"x4" and then each of the smaller sections 1 1/4"x2 3/4"

Then for sections BB1-BB7 & T1-T7 also change them around...#7 becomes #1.

If this doesn't make sense let me know and I can take some pictures too. :)


carriem 07-09-2020 11:58 AM

I missed one when typing...I switched AA1-AA7 around too.

I got all the sections done...next the assembly.

Anyone else have any progress pictures of their center blocks??

Midwestmom 07-09-2020 01:05 PM

Love the block. My fabric arrived today so I hope to get started this weekend.

Paperless Paper Piecing
 
Will anyone be using the Paperless Paper Piecing method while making their medallion and other blocks? Craftsy has a class called "Pain-Free Foundation PiecingPaperless Paper Piecing:Cutting the Fabric Cristy Fincher". I like how you put the block together before starting to sew. That way you can make any changes first and not have to pick out stitches.

Midwestmom 07-10-2020 08:51 AM

I have seen something about that. Looks like it may take some time to learn how to do that method. I was considering freezer paper method although I don't have a lot of experience with that.

JeanieG 07-10-2020 10:11 AM

This Connecting Threads video is the one I used when I learned to do paper piecing. Maybe it will help someone else. I use newsprint to print out my patterns. It has gone through any of my printers just fine. It can be purchased by the ream at the link below (Blick) or you can cut down Dollar stores kids scribble pads.

Nice work.

You guys are cooking!

What fabric line are you using?

carriem 07-10-2020 03:55 PM

Jeanie...looking good!!

aforristall...I am using Kansas Troubles fabrics. Most are from the Through the Years line, but I have some from other KT lines and they all coordinate so I am throwing in some of those too...

aforristall 07-13-2020 07:29 PM

Jeanie, are you using a fabric pack?

JeanieG 07-13-2020 08:04 PM

No, I am just using fabric from my stash. I have had to add some more of the pink and gold colors, and they are hard tones to find.

QuiltingNinaSue 07-14-2020 07:53 AM

Like what I am seeing, great work. I have not gotten notification so will subscribe again. Love those colors, Carrie.

Progress. Next flying geese!

QuiltingNinaSue 07-21-2020 09:04 AM

Looking great Midwestmom. This thread so exciting to see each step! I am still looking at my stash and wondering where to begin as soon as I finish the Frolic top that is on the vertical wall. Meanwhile, t willl enjoy the 'eye candy' here.

JeanieG 07-21-2020 09:25 AM

You are ahead of me Midwestmom! Mine just needs the four pieces sewn together. I am enjoying it up on my display wall. I think there is a small border that goes on before the flying geese. Have not looked up the size yet, but it looks small.

JeanieG 07-21-2020 02:26 PM

Carrie - I was trying to find the border size for the center. What I found said the border was 2" x 2" = what????? Does not make sense. Since I have the CD rather than the book (darn), it is hard to find things. Can you help me out here, list page where the size of the borders are listed. What I found above was in finished block sizes.

QuiltingNinaSue 07-21-2020 03:13 PM

I remember seeing theat the flying geese were 2 7/8 inches tand thinking wat an odd number that was. Is that the answer??

JeanieG 07-21-2020 06:24 PM

The flying geese come after the border that is around the center. The finished size of the flying geese are 2" x 4", so I am using Bonnie Hunters ruler to make them. Have not started on them yet.

Hello All!! I stopped getting all notifications from the quilting board and the last couple weeks have been busy starting a new direct sales biz so I apologize for not keeping in touch!!

Jeannie, the first border after the center is cut 1 1/2". Then then next 4 borders are cut 2 1/2"...I'll try to mention this number again when we are ready for it too. :)

Here is my center. I started cutting fabrics for the flying geese but was told by the doctor yesterday I needed to rest my wrist the next few days...so no sewing for me this week. :( I might at least try to finish cutting the fabrics...shhh don't tell! :)

JeanieG 07-22-2020 10:09 AM

Thanks Carrie - where did you find the information on the borders? Do you have a page # so I can try to find it on my digital book? Your center looks great. I only have one more seam to sew to get it finished. I always sew first with a large stitch in case I need to take it out on complicated areas, and so glad I did. Took it out last night, and will repin and try again today. There are so many small areas that need to match up.

I hope you wrist is better soon. Are you wearing a brace to give it support?

Jeanie, the border info is on page 262 under the "cutting list" heading.

Yes, I am wearing a wrist brace as well as a "tennis elbow" brace on my elbow to help support the tendon on the other end...thanks for asking!!

JeanieG 07-22-2020 10:47 AM

Thank you Carrie!

After doing this center, I think I should have used a darker gold color, it kind of blends in with the background. Also, do you think the blue border is too dark blue? It seems way to bright, or is it just me??? Help! At least it would be an easy fix!

QuiltingNinaSue 07-23-2020 04:37 PM

Love it. Good job, Jeanie.

Midwestmom 07-24-2020 10:12 AM

I think it looks great, Jeanie.

CaleyH 07-24-2020 11:31 AM

I'm pretty new to quilting. Been at it maybe two months.

I'm now just starting to understand how things go together, so I wanted to start looking around the forum, and this is my first stop.

I Googled this quilt, and was astonished at how beautiful, and complex it is.

I've looked at the blocks posted in the thread, and all I can say is "WOW!!, Beautiful!!" Maybe some year I can try to do even the center part of this quilt. It looks like I need that long to gain experience.

I look forward to seeing the progress of everyone participating.

Welcome Caley, I hope you enjoy watching the journey as we progress on our quilt!

Midwestmom - That is looking awesome. I started cutting my geese out last night!
