De-Stashing: May 2013

001Over Memorial Day weekend, I head to the beach in South Carolina to hang out with some of my old quilting buddies.  One of the things I took along was my row-by-row that I did with 7 members of my North Carolina Guild.  I took the box along and made the borders, but did not attach them until I got home.  I kind of got sick of making flying geese and kept rolling around how exactly to do the inner borders.   And the corner pieces!!!    Aack.  I tossed around idea after idea.  I viewed pictures on the web.  I see very little in the way of ideas for corner pieces for a flying geese border–let alone an undulating flying geese border.

In the end, I used a diamond, two more flying geese, and a square to continue the undulating border to a point and then around the corner.  I liked the end result.  I worked on a lot of little projects this month, including the dust cover,  a charity quilt and back, some scrappy blocks, and a couple of gifts of fabric. All in all a good month.  If I can just keep this up through year end.

  1. Your row quilt is awesome. Love your flying geese border too, although those little guys are not my favorite block to piece. I may have to save this idea for a future border on a scrap quilt. Your corners look good! Nice job.
