Design Wall Monday--Dec 2, 2013

On my design surface today is another baby quilt--this one is for my grandson who is due in a few short months. The quilt design is all Flying Geese in groups of four like geese.  My daughter Elaine and I met up at Superbuzzy on Small Business Saturday to pick out the three B's, background, backing, and binding.  Superbuzzy was having a drawing for the occasion, and each customer was greeted by an adorable, about 8-10 year old girl who was dressed in a bee tutu and holding a plastic bin with slips of paper representing a prize, for which she would run off to the back room to retrieve.  Elaine's slip draw yielded a set of purse handles--which she promptly gave to me.  I totally made out with my lucky draw number--see?






An oversized charm square pack of Dimples fabrics--one of my favorite graphic designs.

It must have every color of Dimples made!  I'll have fun with this prize.


All cut fabrics were 20% off and we found a nice white on white background for the flying geese, plus backing and binding (forgot to take a pic of those!).  I got busy this afternoon cutting some pieces for the geese, for which I'm using the fast piece method shown here.  There will be 24 sets of geese and this cutting session I got half the small squares and over half of the large square sets ready.  I seldom cut out a whole quilt at once--preferring to cut some, sew some, rinse and repeat...

Oooh... love that dimples pack. I bought a jelly roll when it first came out and made a great quilt which I gifted to a friend. I think that was the only jelly roll I ever bought. The colors were so fun to work with.

You really scored in the prize department.
Looks like very cute baby boy fabrics for your upcoming grandson.
My upcoming grandchild is still an unknown, so I can't start that quilt yet.

Fabulous prize! You're going to have a lot of fun playing with those.


Cant wait to see the baby quilt in it's entirety. I'm a cut everything and sew kinda gal myself. I dont want to get three blocks from the end and discover I dont have enough fabric - my maths isnt all that brilliant ...

Judy L would fight you for those Dimples fabrics, I bet. She likes them too. I found some of the colors on the Quilt in a Day site. Congrats on a new Grandson coming. Any good reason to make a new quilt.
