Flying . . .

Block 8 - Fly Away Home seems fitting for us here at Bluebird Quilts!     Flying geese in motion, all headed in different directions!  I’m not sure if they are flying to home (North, South, East, West), or away from home (having cabin/nest fever).

Great use of color can make this block pop!  Really go wild – take flight – pick your fabrics – and let your design soar!   I found the pressing hints in the pattern very helpful for putting the block together and having the seams and points match.   The link for the pattern follows. (Hover your cursor over the words to see the underline – that means it is the link.)  And, here is a sample block for you to view.

Block 8 - Fly Away Home


I can’t help think of the phrase “wind beneath my wings”, because it just seems fitting for me.  Quilting is the creative avenue that really gives me a boost, and is the wind beneath my wings.   Winging back to my sewing room now (at home).  Happy stitching!
