Have you ever drooled over a quilt pattern and then been super discouraged by how much is involved in creating it? Well, I love flying geese, but sometimes I just want something a little simpler, so I am so excited about this method of making a flying geese. You won’t believe how easy it is!

Jenny came up with a darling bonus project using this same method! Look at this great holiday wall hanging!

When you sew your flying geese together, it creates little pockets on either side, so Jenny created this Christmas-y layout with 24 pockets that makes a little Christmas Advent Calendar! You could applique some numbers on there and really personalize it to make something really sweet!

We even created some super cute printables to use for the advent for some fun things you can do each day with your family! You can download it here:

Or you could just use it as a festive wall hanging and fill the pockets with Christmas cards or wrapped candies! You can do whatever you want!

Mom has been busy as a bee, whipping out quilts left and right!  We are continuing to get more and more new patterns in the shop {that we ordered from Quilt Market} daily and have been keeping the sewing machines running on FULL BLAST!

When we met Karen Bennet (and her family) at Market, we couldn’t have been more thrilled with her patterns.  She is a sweetheart and if you haven’t sewn with one of her patterns yet, you are surely missing out!  The pattern I am going to show you today is called ‘Freedom’ and it is darling!  It has 3 different projects to make in it and goes together so {sew} fast using Jelly roll strips and iron on applique.  We cut up some kits for this quilt, because it is just that darling!

Perfect for the Holiday coming up, to give as a hostess gift, use as a table topper, a picnic blanket or hanging as a decoration!

We do have a few kits left if you want to call the Shop and one of the girls will add one to your order!  {1-888-571-1122}

The next “patriotic” themed quilt project I wanted to show you is from one of our Local Ladies {and if you went on the bus trip, you’d know her. She was the bus trip coordinator} Carolyn and her Sister formed a company called ‘In Stitches’ and they love the Charm Packs as much as we do!  Here is her adorable and very versatile pattern called ‘Star Lit USA’

If you notice, we have two made up…One in Patriotic colors and one in Christmas colors!  Don’t limit yourself to those two holidays either.  This pattern in one of my favorites, just because it is great with any color combo or style of fabric.  Think about how cute it would be in batiks.  {okay, so I DO have a thing for stars}

Have a wonderful weekend enjoying yourself wherever you are.  Take a moment to give thanks for our Freedom.  I for one am beyond grateful to live in this beautiful Country.

God Bless the USA!

PS.  We are having the most fun ‘Patriotic Parade’ on facebook!  Please join us by sharing your project there!
