Good morning everyone!
Hope your day is off to a good start. It's going to be a beautiful day here.
I've been working on my disappearing 9patch quilt. I haven't figured out a name for it yet.
Here's the 9 patches, all ready for a good press and then cutting them apart.
And here are the flying geese, in progress.
I use the method where you get 4 geese out of 1 larger square and 4 smaller squares. I'm almost done with these, then I'll press and trim.
Linking up with Lee and Lorna again today. Thanks Ladies.

I hope my American friends had a great Fourth of July weekend. The heat wave we've been having has finally cooled some, we might even see a shower or two in the next few days. That would be good.
So, I started a new quilt top. I know, I need another quilt top like I need a hole in my head. But, well... you know ;) My son is making me a nice sewing table, and I am hoping to be able to use it to help me baste my quilt tops, so that I can really and truly start quilting them easier.
I designed this quilt quite a few months ago. My dh helped me pick out colors :) Then I bought this fat quarter bundle from Riley Blake, it's called Cotton Shades. And the colors are close enough to what my dh and I came up with, that I decided to use them for this project.
I didn't use the whole bundle, there are 4 pieces left over. These are all the ones, plus the backgrounds pieces, I am using.
The darker gray is Quilters Rose by STOF. Oh, thats the wrong yellow. I switched it out for some Sweetwater swirly yellow fabric from the Sunkissed line. The gray check is from the same line. You can see the swirly yellow I am using in the next picture.
Here's the disappearing nine patch block I'll be using.
And some flying geese.
I'll be doing a lot of trimming... sigh~ but, trimming makes the blocks go together better, right?! So trimming I'll be doing... after the blocks are sewn.
Have a great day!
