I didn’t get much quilting done over the weekend. I went to the International Quilt Festival in Houston TX. That was quite an event. There was so much stuff to see my head was spinning. I bought a ruler foot for my machine and watched the demonstration. I will see if it will work as easy as it looked for me. I will post about it when I give it a try.
I took a few pictures to share. This one is called Arches by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry. She has quite a few pictures and bio on her website. Her fine art quilts are amazing. I loved the colors in this quilt. They are soothing to me. The card said that it was from a photo of the Baptistery of St. John in Pisa, Italy. It’s as if you are looking up from below. I think it is just wonderful.
On to my projects, my mom helped me sew a jelly roll together. She sewed them in 4 strip, strip sets. This was a big help. She then brought them to me unpressed. She had some projects she wanted to work on as well. I’ll take whatever help I can get. I pressed them and sewed the strips together. I found no buckling once I had them all sewed together. I was happy about that. I used the Stack and Flip Tutorial by Jenny Doan. The fabrics were a Benartex Dreamscape jellyroll and Moda black. It couldn’t have been any easier. I added the extra strip she suggested and have leftover strips to make into binding. I would like to see the quilting finished on this quilt before the end of the month. I would say binding also, but I’m not very fast and have another project I am working on also.
I did get some more paper pieced blocks done. I’ve done all the large circle of geese and have a few of the medium geese done. I would at least like to try to get the three circles of geese done before the end of the month. I haven’t taken any more pictures of them. They all look just about the same. Those are large ones in the picture. The color repition on the medium geese will be blue, green, and red. Since I am new to paper piecing, I am hoping that I am doing this right and my blocks will go together fairly correct. I am concerned that they won’t fit right after all the work I’m putting in. I am following the directions as close as possible. I will stay confident until any issues arise. I anticipate all my quilt blogger friends I am making will come to my rescue if necessary. They have all been so encouraging during my project so far.

That’s all I have for now. Thanks for stopping by.
