Teal Dragon Quilts

Round 6

on January 28, 2013

Well, I made it to round 6!  This quilt was my favorite.  I’ve been watching it, knowing I get the last round, and wondering what I could do to add to the beauty of this quilt.

6th Round, what I got

6th Round, what I got

Isn’t it gorgeous.  What to do?  I will mimic one of the borders already done!  I chose the twisted red ribbon border to mimic.  I tried to do a twisted ribbon on a previous round, but was unable to make it work.

Flying geese are used to make the ribbon.  And I learned a new way to make the flying geese!  One seam!  Watch this.

I had to go shopping, to find the right fabric.

The Fabric

Strips

Cut into strips.

The light fabric is folded in half.

Squares

Then it’s time to layer.  Bottom layer right side up, the light, then top layer, right side down.

Three layers stacked

Fold is to the top.  Align the right edges, then sew 1/4″ on right edge.DSC04042 DSC04041

Press and get ready for the magic!

Press

Open the light fabric.

Open the Goose

You have a Flying Geese Block.  Pretty cool, eh?

Magic!

Now, to sew all those blocks.  I forget the number of blocks, but it was quite a few.  But look how it came out!Voila'!

 I hope you have enjoyed all the quilts I have presented.  I learned that I can meet a deadline, I can try new techniques, and I would love to do another round robin!

Let me know if you have participated in any round robins and how they helped you grow as a quilter.

Thanks, for stopping by.  God Bless you!
