goosey goosey gander...
whither shall I wander?
upstairs and downstairs, in my lady's chamber?
there I met an old man who wouldn't say his prayers.
So I took him by his left leg, and threw him down the stairs.
I used to love that nursery rhyme. Anything with a goose in, to be honest (or any other bird) would keep me entertained for hours. I still find it hilariously funny now. Small things and small minds...I'm easily amused.
The quilt up there in the pics is the one I made for Fat Quarterly. It's a variation of the flying geese block and can be pieced together pretty quickly. I made the smaller scrappy version for my best friend's baby shower at the weekend - it went down a storm with a lot of oohs and ahhs from the other guests (which made me ever so slightly more than happy, obviously!!!).
You can make one for yourself on April 27th. That's next week! Yes, on April 27th (Tuesday) you will be able to purchase and download the very first issue of Fat Quarterly. I am more than a little excited. And nervous, to be honest.
So it seems there are some of you that would like a tute (otherwise known as math help) for the So St Croix quilt from last post. Super duper - I'll get some pics and new squares cut up so I can explain visually to you how to get the most out of your FQs and have it up in the next couple of days (before the weekend, for sure). Which also means I get to make another quilt. Whoo! (ANY excuse!)
EDIT - Blogger is acting up a little and for some reason the pics are not always showing up, so you can head to flickr and see them there. I'm going to hit blogger with a rusty hammer and hope that fixes it...
