I did get something in this week…one of my favorite things ever. A little scrap bag from Cathy.
I am especially excited because I typically don’t get a lot of greens and the bad she sent is full of them. Think some of them are going to work their way into more Loosey Goosey blocks.
I had played with making a few of these blocks when the pattern came out as part of Bonnie Hunter’s Addicted to Scraps column in Quiltmaker came out. I am really hoping that she makes these in to a pattern for the new book she has coming out. I love making the little guys.
Once I get moved to the new house, my sewing room will be 23′ x 13 1/2″ plus a big closet. My plan is to keep a machine set up all the time for paper piecing either these or my Pineapple Crazy blocks. It’s just too messy to have these out with my regular machine and having to clean it up to work on deadline projects….that’s my dream anyway.
Thanks Cathy for saving your bits and passing them on to me. I appreciate it.
Here’s the stash report numbers.
Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 0 yards store bought + 0 Moda fabric + 0 yards of recycled fabric…
What machine do you prefer for paper piecing? Paper piecing is not my favorite thing, seems like a lot of hassle. Looking for a way to make it easier.

Jo, you and I must be twins because that is exactly what I have been working on the last few weeks, pineapple and geese blocks by Bonnie Hunter. I love them because they use up all the bits and pieces that my guild friends give me. I have been sewing mine with my “Free” treadle sewing machine. It was made by Free Company but I cannot find out exactly when. It was my husbands great grandmothers and we purchased it when she passed and her stuff was auctioned away. It is a lot of fun to use. In fact I used this treadle to make my Celtic Solstic quilt this year. Have a great day.
I really like your mini blocks with flying geese–wonderful way to use those leftover triangles. Do you have a link to where these are on the Quiltville site?
