I’ve really been enjoying participating in the Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long through Meadow Mist Designs. Being a novice quilter, it is such a great opportunity for me to build and stretch my quilting skills. I finally finished the August assignment of making 36 Flying Geese units. I really appreciated Cheryl’s clear directions as I had never tried making flying geese blocks before. It quickly became clear that it was going to be exceedingly difficult to make the text go the same direction with two smaller triangles, so I reached out to other quilters on Facebook and Instagram (as well as my sister who is the graphic artist in my family) and was encouraged to embrace the wonky randomness of the text going different directions. I’m glad I did because I’m very happy with them.
Have you ever had a Work-in-Progress that you thought you might have to throw in the scrap bin only to end up really liking it?
