Last week I taught a class at my favorite quilt shop in the whole world, Q-First in Quilting, which also happens to be about a mile away from my house in Lexington. (Lucky me, right??) In class I taught my favorite method for making Flying Geese units using squares – 1 larger square and 4 smaller contrasting squares, strategically stitched together to produce four Flying Geese units all at once. Instead of having to tediously cut tiny triangles, or waste yards of fabric by using rectangles and squares, using this method will save you time, and will hopefully help you fall in love with the Flying Geese block.
I made a rug. My scrap bin was full, and I needed to get rid of it. I had a lot of 2.5″ wide strips from extra quilt binding, so I decided crocheting the strips might be a cool idea. Turns out, it was! I wrote a tutorial on my process so you can make your own recycled crochet rug, too.
Adding a quilt sleeve is really easy, I promise. If you want to enter quilt shows, or just want to hang your quilt on a wall, my quilt sleeve tutorial will walk you through it, step-by-step. Today I added a sleeve to my smallest piece that’s headed to QuiltCon 2015, and decided to write a little tutorial on my process.
I hope this was a helpful tutorial for those who might not know how to add a sleeve to their quilt. This is only one method, but I love it because of the extra space that allows the quilt to hang flat. Now, back to more sleeve-making for me!
