What's on my design wall?

I've been plugging away at pressing and trimming up the flying geese units that I made at the Temecula Quilt Show. I've decided that I like this block, but I think the blocks need sashing between them. It seems too busy without the separation.

I also started making these blocks for this quilt. I need to keep some handwork with me for those unexpected down times, and waiting rooms.
Applique Outside the Lines is from the Piece 'o Cake team, Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins.

I also keep knitting with me. I'm almost finished with these socks. I just have a few more rows of the toe to do. The pattern is a free one from Knitting Daily. They are the Broken Cable Socks. I think my teaching buddy Karen is getting these.


  1. I love the flying geese block without the sashing, but would like the option to change my mind when I see more blocks though!

  2. The one time I used a bunch of flying geese was as a border around each log cabin block in a quilt. Looking forward to seeing what you end up doing with them.

    Love the applique leaves... very cute! And speaking of socks - I can hear my yarn calling my name...

  3. The socks look soft and wonderful. Love the flying geese block.
