季节变化的时间到了!在澳大利亚我们居st celebrated the first day of Spring (vernal equinox be damned), and I am ready for it! Time for more light in my sewing room, and more warmth in my life. I’m so in love with the two block options for September that I can’t even decide which I’m going to make first. Besides the fact that I have like twelve other deadlines that need finishing, but who’s counting? I do want to remind everyone that this is a no pressure quilt bee, so don’t feel like you have to make everything in sequential order. If you’ve missed sewing along for the past four months, that is completely fine (hello, and even expected!) Don’t worry about what you’ve missed, instead, if you like the look of September’s blocks, just jump in and make a few of these!
所以首先是9月，艾琳Quilt By Starlighthas offered up this beautiful, easy-going, Scrappy Cross Block fromBonjour Quilts.. You can make this as scrappy or non-scrappy as you like, but don’t stress yourself too much about lining everything up. These look best when they have a little flourish of the hand. So let go, and just getcha getcha gethcha get your sew on!
嘿嘿！我是艾琳，你可以在旁边找到我由星光被子. I’m a long arm quilter by night, an Executive Assistant by day, and I’m obsessed with the finishing aspect of quilting. I’m usually dreaming about how I’m going to quilt it, even before the fabric pull is finished!I like long walks on the beach, I’m obsessed with the rain, I will argue till the cows come home that aqua is the best neutral hands down, and I hoard, *cough*, I mean curate, an ample fabric collection.
My first love was piecing though, and I do love a good cross block! Since I am not a pattern designer myself, I had a chat to the lovely Kirsty from Bonjour Quilts. I’ve selected her fab陷入困境的交叉块（在9月份的月份前往Kirsty的博客）！当我在做我的例子时I couldn’t stop at just one block. (I think I might need to make a full quilt!) This block is a great size at 8” finished for making extras to fill out your quilt top closer to the end.
SO, not that you needed the backstory, but when Nell was two months old, I got this call out of the blue from the MQG asking if I was available to film Fresh Quilting TV. Say WHAT? Wrong number? Turns out someone had to back out at the last minute, so I got to fill in and film a couple segments for the 200 series earlier this summer. …On three weeks’ notice, mind you – so basically I was totally their LAST resort… ha ha.. But hey, it sounded fun and I was on maternity leave so I wasn’t about to turn that opportunity down!
Anyway, somewhat serendipitously, it starts airing this week, and as of this past Friday we are allowed to share the footage with whomever we want. I figured my demo on fussy-cut foundation paper piecing (which is based on a free little 5″ block) would be perfect for this month’s honey pot bee — you know, a nice little foray that sews up super quick, with a nice visual, and that hopefully won’t scare anyone away from FPP in the process!
另外..至于块，我最近只给了它一个名字......我称之为倾斜的鹅。因为这些天一切都倾向于Aviquight？！（#sosamerica #seriouslywhatyearisit #factsarealating）除鹅除外。所以在#slantedgoose上的dibs。
