I wrote this post on August 5. I had my August square done and quilted that early - amazing isn't it! Now, we are on a rather lengthy trip and somewhere on the Kenai Peninsula, AK. I hope to have Internet access to link up on September 1.
The August Quilt Square Quilt Along at Jo's Country Junction was to make our choice of blocks from the ones left in Lori Smith’s pattern Quilt Squares #4.
I chose to use some Stonehenge fabric by Sunshine Cottage (Northcott). I bought this fabric a couple of years ago and could only get the brown/rust/cream color family. I decided it would be great for placemats which I recently made. With the scraps, I decided to do the block with 9 stars.
The only problem was with the flying geese. I don't know why but my pieces did not fit. Maybe it was because I was doing this in a hurry! Anyway, I had to cut all of the little triangles a second time. I didn't have enough fabric to really make this scrappy - I really like that look too.
I machine quilted this with Cucumber Vine from Leah Day at The Free Motion Quilting Project Quilt Along.
