Day 86 - of 100 Days of Quilts
Feathered Flying Geese - from 'Traditional Quilts to Paper Piece'

Cori just called me tonight, and told me that her and her family are heading up to Kenora for the weekend, and she needed directions to the new quilt shop we found on our last trip. She's going to a shop without me! That's OK, I've been fabric shopping lately too...

So in honour of her being up in the Kenora area, I am posting this quilt. WAY back in 2003, we went up to this area for the first time, and we taught this project in a class. I believe that we had 26 students in the class...so I am wondering how many have finished their projects? (No pressure Karen - it's only been 5 years) And I know how daunting all of those little triangles can be. If you would like to make one for yourself, this little quilt is found in our third book. I can say that I have seen a few of these finished quilts, which always makes me happy, because when we teach a class, we do hope that the quilt is finished, and not just tossed into a corner.

You may not realize it, but I have just given you a clue to what we will be doing after our 100 days of quilts. Cori and I have had many great strategic meetings, about all of the new things that we will be doing this fall. And the BIGGEST news will be a contest that we will announce on Aug. 1st. Which means that we will cram in all of our quilts before that date. This contest is unlike anything that has EVER been done before. It's not a draw. It's not a raffle. It's a contest you can win, and you don't even have to do the work of it. Intrigued? You won't have to wait long...but you will have to wait....

See you tomorrow.

Man! I knew this one would show up eventually to haunt me! Wow, how 5 years have flown by! It's not like I have been sitting on my hands...
You just wait; one day I'll just show up out of the blue with this one done.
PS Can't wait for the contest.

Mine is done....and has been done for a couple of years now! I am proud of that, and just love it! It turned out so well, and it is one of the ones that Myra has seen!
