Quilting with the Stars!


A few more "Cecile" (Patchwork Inspirations) stars to add to the pile. I am loving these little guys. They are so much fun to make.

We all have our favorite way to make the Flying Geese units for these stars. My favorite way is to piece a square in a square block and trim down to the perfect size.
There is a bit of math involved in the beginning and a tad more waste, but it works for me. I am paying no attention to the direction of fabrics. I want the wonky look (and, yes it makes piecing easier!)

The signup is now closed, but do visit Cecile’s blog (here) or the Facebook page (here) to see all the fabulous stars! 

I also want to share a recent acquisition. This beautiful fraktur was hand painted (including the frame) by a Facebook quilting friend, Mark Lauer.
I adore it and it fits perfectly on my wall of miniatures.
Thanks Mark! You cane see and purchase Mark's work on his Facebook page (here).

And another way to make flying geese, will give this a try, especially for small ones. The fraktur is beautiful, it will be a sweet addition to your decor.

I love how you make your flying geese! Can you share the math? I am guessing there is a formula.

CecileD said...

Love your blocks Wendy !! They are gorgeous !
And your method to have flying geese is clever !!
The Fraktur is beautiful !!

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I've never used that method to make geese--clever! I do have a lot of issues making square in a square blocks that are actually square though so it probably wouldn't be a good way for me--lol! Your stars are great!

Barb said...

your little stars are too too sweet! I've never seen FG done that way - so clever.
Your new fraktur is lovely and I adore the frame. It looks comb painted.
Your miniature wall is amazing! I love the oar. I had a red painted oar and let it go when we moved and I wish I hadn't .

Janet O. said...

I love the bold colors of your stars. I have never before seen that method of making flying geese--fascinating!
A beautiful little fraktur! I love the display on your wall. :)

Barbara said...

Oh what sweet little stars and your method for making flying geese is ingenious! I didn't know Mark had another talent besides making quilts. Love that fraktur and your wall of miniatures!

Karen said...

I have never seen a flying geese unit made with a square in a square. Different but if it works......

My husband was flirting with another woman. until he vanished away, I was desperate to get him back, I wasted so much time and money trying to get my Husband back, I tried almost all possibilities to have him back and nothing worked. I became lonely. To make it short, I found a spell caster Dr Azaka I saw the good testimonies about his wonderful work and after reading the Testimonials, I decided I had to try and give it one last try and After the spells, a miracle happened, my husband came home. It was really awesome to see the man I love in my arms again, anyone who needs help or relationship Advice, should pls contact dr Azaka via Whatsapp +2349059389105 or Email azakaspelltemple@gmail.com
