  •  Those are wonderful. (10+ / 0-)

    The idea is to build skills and knowledge about how to put together a quilt.  In the flying Dutchman Puzzle you will need 6 1/2 by 3 1/2 units of flying geese.  I gave you a choice on how to make them that I think is the most common way.  

    Thanks for sharing the pictures.  You just made my day.  I wasn't sure if anyone was interested.  You will have fun putting the sample blocks in an arrangement so the colors all work.  

    The other blocks I showed was samples of creative ways that can happen with left over block parts and scraps that you have on hand.  You might like to try something creative this week with your scraps.

      I noticed your idea about the scraps.  I have a bunch of little 1.5" and 2" squares that i'm going to have to figure out how to use some day.  I had thought of making some little 4-patch or 9-patch blocks to use as squares in other blocks like you did.  

      i'm excited to try the flying geese.  just told my husband, 'boy i'm going to have to study this a bit before I can start these blocks'.  have to do some figuring, I think.  luckily I didn't cut all my fabric into strips and bricks and squares---I left some in fat quarters and larger pieces, so i'll be able to do these flying geese.

      I was hoping that we'd get some folks interested in doing this quilt-along.  I hope i'm not the only one.  maybe if nobody else is interested, you wouldn't mind helping me finish via email or something?

      because I really want to do it!  do you have any idea how may weeks the series will run?

      thanks again.  it means a lot to me to learn all the history that you include in your diaries.  just love it!

      Is it Spring yet? This eternal Winter stuff is for the birds. (And I don't think even they like it, unless they're penguins.)
