Quilt Archaeology ~ October Treat ~ Part Two

Here we are, already on part two of our October Treat sew along.  I hope you found some useful tips from my last post about connector corners.  I'll bet you're all experts now!  

This week will be super easy, peasy because we're making larger Flying Geese using the same method as last week.  So, you can put your skills to the test once again.  

You'll use (8) H pieces and (4) A pieces to make (4) Flying Geese.  Be sure to measure them to check for accuracy.  

Gather the small center star you made last week along with the (4) Flying Geese you just made and (4) B squares.  Sew together into rows; press.  Sew rows together, press.  (So, I was paying attention enough to take this photo, but not of the sewn block.  Geez, Pam.  I blame it on Outlander!  Please forgive me.)  Measure, check for accuracy.  Refer to your pattern for all measurements.  

Guess What?  I have a bit of exciting news!!  

A few weeks ago, the folks at Marcus called, and told me they found a stray case pack of my entire Cheddar & Chocolate collection in the warehouse.....was I interested?  Are you kidding???  YES!

So...I have what is likely the last, full and complete set of Cheddar & Chocolate.  It's available in Fat Quarter bundles.  If you missed out on this very popular collection, this is your chance to buy a bundle for yourself.  Click here to see all the fabrics in the line.

I'm prepping for my Monday's With Marcus spotlight day (coming Oct 19th.)  Project is all done, of course, and so many of you have purchase the Star Maker Mini Runner kit.  (THANK YOU!)

Next, I have to make the video.  (Groan)  I love watching them, don't like making them.  I'm not a professional performer, per se, and don't crave the spotlight at all.  Hubby and I have to figure out how to do this and it's a bit of a learning curve.   Pray it all turns out for me!

I've been working on several new fabric lines.  Oh....I can hardly contain myself wanting to fill you in on the newest one....just waiting for it to be introduced by Marcus first.  You're gonna loose your mind!  And, I'm trying to find time to sew here and there....just to keep my sanity from all this election and covid stuff.   And...I'm still waiting on my flooring to arrive for the long-overdue renovation in my sewing room.  Since I'll have to empty nearly everything out of this room, I am both glad they haven't called yet, and annoyed they haven't called yet.  You know what I mean.

Well, that's it for now.  Enjoy your weekend and I'll check in on Monday with a reminder for you to visit Deirdre Bond-Abel, our next Marcus designer.

Do take good care of yourselves and be well........stitch to your hearts content!

That's it for this week.
