Now that fall is in the air (in the mornings, anyway), the urge to finish the quilts I have going is especially acute. Swept up in two quilt-alongs as I am, chain-piecing has been the order of the day. I've got nine Modern Maples blocks done with three more in progress. (I do them in threes because I need the instant gratification of seeing finished blocks.)
But what's more gratifying is that I've got border #4 (flying geese) of the Marcelle Medallion done.
I think this border has cured my desire to make a flying geese quilt (at least for now). All those bias seams! I really like how this quilt is shaping up. I'm aiming for a rich and saturated scrappy look. I like that the low-volume prints in the center and alternating borders keep it from looking too busy (I think).
The bricks for border #5 are all cut and ready for piecing. I'm going to put the bricks in a bag and *try* to sew them as I pull them out rather than laying them out beforehand.
Linking up to the MMQAL over at penny poppleton.
