Fabric Pull

Test Block Fabric and QAL Sewing

I am doing a lot of sewing right now, but I can’t share about it just yet. I’m test sewing my upcoming quilt along quilt. The pattern is 85 pages long (it feels more like I wrote a book than a quilt along pattern!!) and I’m really excited about all of the options it contains. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish my test version in the next few weeks.

I am loving working with the Northcott Premium ColorWorks Solids in Cloud Nine (lightest), Lapis, Royal, and After Midnight for the sample QAL quilt. You know I’m a sucker for all the blues!

Over the weekend, I worked on another pattern that I’ll be sharing earlier next year. In order to have a bit of a palette cleanser from all the blue I’ve been working with, I made a fabric pull for a test block that I’ll sew sometime soon. And look, it’s proof my stash does have some prints, haha!

Also, I think my week might start off with a swerve. I have continuously worked hard to create flying geese using the four-at-a-time method, and I *may* have struck on something that is finally working well for me. I have some more test sewing to do, and I anticipate being back on Friday with an update on my experiment that I hope will help you out in the future for your four-at-a-time flying geese needs, too. Stay tuned!

    I’m anxious to see your flying geese trick. I haven’t found my perfect procces for them yet. I’ve tried you smidge over process and it comes close for me! I’ll be waiting to check it out! Love those blues, can’t get tired of that pallette.

  2. Those fabrics are lovely. Fun to hear that you are sewing a lot, can’t wait to see what you are creating!

    Love the second pull- the textured fabrics add a richness. Very pretty choices Yvonne!

  4. Beautiful fabric selections. I’m looking forward to your new insight on the 4-1 FG. I often find 3 are perfect and one is a little off.

    Oh, I hope so. Oversized so I can trim them would be wonderful. Sometimes mine get catty wampus. Probably in the pressing. But the sewing is also a good bet.

    Like you fabric pulls. Not surprised to see the blues.

    Fabric pulls are just lovely! Looking forward to hearing more about your discovery for making flying geese.

  8. Jasmine @ Quilt Kisses says:

    Such beautiful fabric pulls. And wow! 85 pages does sound like a book.

  9. Kate says:

    Both fabric pulls look great, but I’m a big fan of blue so that one is my favorite. Sounds like a very complicated pattern for it to be so many pages!

    Wow…where does the time go? It seems like we just finished the last QAL. Looking forward to sewing along again.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
