Sewing with The Kid

I know I haven't been posting a lot lately,
but I have been sewing a lot!
I have been making great progress on my flying geese quilt.
I have 56 four geese blocks

And I have 30 of these square in square filler blocks.
I love this one with the little sheep in the middle.
I am paper piecing all of these and I love the precision.

The Kid came over today to sew with me.
I LOVE it when this happens.
We have so much fun giggling and figuring out 
what works and what doesn't on our projects.

She finished the top for her log cabin quilt,
and started piecing the back.
I think I convinced her that quilting by check 
 might be the way to go for this quilt.
It's queen size and it would be her first time quilting it herself.
Maybe start with something smaller??? 
I want her to keep sewing!  Haha.

I worked on this Love wall hanging.
The kid helped me with the border selection,
and she was so right.
My first choice was way too busy.
I was inspired by Nichi at Quiltycat

I had to re-do a couple of the letters.
You really need to lay them all out to make sure the
colors work next to each other.

So we settled on a Kaffe border . . . 
(What a surprise!)
This little goodie is headed to a good friend for her birthday.
Shhhhh . . . it's a surprise.
Now to quilt it.

All in all a great day of sewing with the best company ever!
Hope you had a fun day too.


  1. Tell the kid I agree with her mother about quilting by check for that big quilt. Instead of wrestling with it and ripping out work she doesn't like, it will be well worth it and it's too nice to turn into a UFO! Love how colorful and cheery your flying geese and the love quilt both are.

  2. I love all these colours together and the squares in squares are fantastic, especially the little sheep one.

  3. That log cabin quilt looks so great on your 4-poster! And I love the bewildered sheep surrounded by all those geese, too. Wish I could have been there with all that giggling going on.
