I’m so happy! I’ve found a lost project. 18 months ago I was moving house and a friend came to visit a week before. So she packed up my very messy room, and started with my sewing table and a quilt in various pieces scattered everywhere. She’s NOT a quilter, nor a sewer.
While setting up my sewing room a year ago I found all the pieces EXCEPT the 6 complete 20″ blocks that make up this 9 block quilt. My sons were amazed that she lived to tell the tale, or was ever allowed back to visit. That visit I think was the one where she also broke one of my prized depression green glass bowls, one of the rare perfect ones with no scratches, no seams that I had picked up at the local op shop for $10, worth about $150.
I’d essentially given up on ever see these blocks again and envisioned them at the local tip, stuffed in an old shopping bag and somehow tossed out as rubbish. 🙁
Where were they found, in a box, under a desk in my sons room that I cleaned up on Sunday! I think that was the Fates present merely for entering that stinky room.
Anyway about the quilt, it’s a 85″ square flying geese quilt where I learnt to do my very first ever foundation piecing using freezer paper. So easy. The pattern is by Margaret @ Quilt Station. Up until this quilt I’d never been interested in foundation piecing as I didn’t like the idea of using paper or interfacing, but I love using freezer paper. Since then I’ve done another quilt that uses the freezer paper method, Abbeville County, which uses freezer paper for the arcs.
Ciao for now
