Almost a Flimsy

Hello Everyone,
Emilie Elizabeth is almost a flimsy.  I made the four corners blocks which will reside in the borders.  Those of you that have taken my Patchwork Math class can probably spot the quilting components I made for this block.  See if you can pick them out.  There are 12 half square triangles, 4 squares in a triangle, 4 flying geese....and a Partridge in a Pear Tree!  Okay, I'm being silly now, but the table was full of an assembly line of components.

The 56 square in a square are all sewn together and attached to the quilt.

I'm really pleased with the explosion of color around this quilt.  I tried to incorporate every fabric from the Judie's Quilt Album .  I used only red fabrics in the first version of the quilt.  I also added this little 1/2" of red inner border instead of using blue.  It makes a nice addition to the quilt.

The 9" borders are all pieced, ironed and ready to go.

Please come back tomorrow.....the day of the big reveal!



  1. I have my bag of popcorn ready for the big show!

  2. I will be with Candace in the front row aging for the BIG REVEAL :-D

  3. And I'll be right there with Candace and Sue in that front row! I'm sure there are a lot of others who will be joining us! Will you share your popcorn, Candace?

  4. Yep, I'm joining you too for the big reveal. I like my popcorn buttered!

  5. Wouldn't miss it for the world!!! Do we need 3-D glasses???

  6. Can't wait to see the whole thing!!

  7. Well, I've looked, and I've looked, but can't see the partridge. Budge up on the front row and make room for a little (haha) one, perhaps I'll be able to see it then!
