Carol is the blog hop "Queen".
She really knows how to entice us with her fabulous ideas.
I see airplanes, and helicopters (that have no wings, now that I think about it).
Then there are butterfly's and dragonfly's,
bees and bats!
What about birds and pterodactyls...you know flying dinosaurs!
Well, maybe they are just from my lifetime.
Two days ago I participated in the "Dust off a Quilt Book" blog hop,
where we pulled an old book off the shelf and made something.
"Sew" for this hop, I went to my computer...
(the other place that has more patterns on it, than my lifetime allows for sewing)
and started searching.
Yep...there it was from 2009.
A "BOM" that never happened, from one of my favorite designers
Angie Padilla, from "Angie's Bits 'n Pieces".
I've been a member of her group since 2009???
Whew, how time fly's...and without wings it "seams"
Here it is in all it's glory!
I have to say...it was no easy task.
There were so many different techniques in this quilt.
It was a challenge at times, but I persevered and glad I did.
You may have remembered me showing you these blocks with all Y-seams earlier
Yep...if you ever feel like your getting to big for your own pants...
it just takes a Y-seam to knock you back to reality!
But when I look at blocks like this...
It was so worth while.
So many adorable Angels flying around...it's hard to choose a favorite.
There was applique and piecing, some paper pieced blocks...
and the entire saw tooth border was paper pieced.
All the blocks were different sizes and fit together like a puzzle,
which was so much fun.
This entire quilt came out of my stash,
with the exception of having to buy a couple fat quarters of yellow.
That was just not a color I had much of on hand.
It always makes me happy when I manage to do a little stash busting!
So, thank you Carol for that. If you keep these hops up for long, I just might
get thru some of what I have collected in, this lifetime.
If not, I guess there is always next lifetime!
It's now hanging in my quilt room and makes me feel happy every time I see it!
Please visit my fellow bloggers and see what wing-ed things they have dreamed up.
I know you'll be in for a treat.
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
