CHALLENGE PART 2 BLOCK


here is my block for the part 2 of a challenge i entered in another group...this is just one block and its huge.... but the challenge was to add 'flying geese' around the outside of the whole block and get them to work perfectly...this was my entry....

i really like this block but then i like quilts with stars too...they work for traditional and modern quilts both and they are pretty easy to make....i am thinking of making one row and adding 1 more star and 9 patch to make a runner with a border and flying geese around that....i do believe it would make a striking table runner....

in one of my blogs i follow today i found an address for sending quilts to new york because of hurricane Sandy...other day i found one but they only wanted bed size ones...this one today will take the smaller ones too...so i think i will send a couple including the one i am finishing that was pictures yesterday....it could wrap a child and then i will send one that will be good for a baby or toddler....i just cant imagine being in the mess that is in new york and new Jersey right now...just terrible...

as i have mentioned i kind of lost my confidence in machine quilting recently, i wasn't that good to begin with being a beginner and i have had a runner that i wanted to do something special on with a design and was scared to try it cause i thought i would botch it...well yesterday i got brave after i quilted the crazy strings one i thought i could work on the runner...it went ok and i even put a design in the blocks and when i get the binding sewn down i will post a picture of it....

for now i am going to lie down for a bit....i woke this morning too early but not feeling quite right and later found my digestive system is acting up so i am going to lie down and hope to feel better later on today....more later.....
