Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
I’ve been working on the pattern testing I’m doing for Denise @ For the Love of Geese. The pattern is called Nostalgia Twist and it is a foundation pieced quilt. So far, I’m very please with my progress. It seems to be going together very well. I have not found any issues with the pattern as of yet. It is very well written and easy to understand.
Below you can see my vision. I am going for the nautical theme where there is the mariner’s compass in the center and it is surrounded by water and sky in blue.
I put the center compass together and WOW, I was stunned by the results. My points were nearly perfect. Not exact, but good enough for me. Something I could not have come close to by regular piecing.
I’ve been trudging along and have been able to add another row. Keep in mind that it takes a little longer to paper piece. I find this is due to not being able to chain piece. If you count the time you would have taken to cut the block out the cutting after each piece is almost the same. Here is what it looks like now.
So for my goal for July, I’d like to complete this geese row and also add the next row of square in a square and mountains. I am hopeful that this is an achievable goal since July is shaping up to be a busy month. The grass and weeds seem to be growing at an alarming rate and it’s hard to keep on top of it. We mowed grass yesterday and it is expected to rain everyday for the rest of the week. The grass will the be out of control in no time. Our Fourth of July may have to be an inside one.
