Friday Finds....block patterns

Quilt in a Day / Autumn at the White House:   A free pattern from Eleanor here to download.    I know it is simple and easy to figure out, but I find it hard to resist  Eleanor's designs.    She always has full measurement charts and good cutting instructions, too.   Be sure to check out the full selection of free patterns offered.

Trifle Dish: Butterflies and 4-Patches « Moda Bake Shop:
From the Moda Bakeshop a good tutorial on making this block using scraps or layer cake pre-cuts.  This is a perfect pattern for my leader/ender 4 patches!

tutorial - when you have to make flock of geese: Moda Bake Shop: Flying in Squares Quilt:

   While you are at the Bakeshop, check out this block pattern too.  It is called Flying in Squares.      I like the variation of the flying is on my list of future projects.
I started a new Pinterest board for Flying    Lots of pins for various tutorials on geese and  layouts.

As always, please visit the links for pinning and details.
And just a is tax day.....did you file your return?  My girlfriend from high school who lives in Florida did her usual "wait till the last few days" to do her return, and then be sure to call Debbie with questions!'s our annual phone visit and life would not be complete without it.    Some things you can just count on.

Happy stitching.

April 15 always fills me with dread even though we throw lots of paperwork and money at a person called an accountant :) Flying geese always made me nervous when I first started quilting, but after making them I think they're easy, just time consuming.

Having worked for an accountant, that job is always done far in advance of the deadline, but I can remember getting bundled into the car as a child at night to go to the post office with the taxes!

Thank you for the introduction to the free patterns at Eleanor Burns' site. She always has some good ones and now I'm going to have a nice long look.

So many great patterns--how is a body supposed to avoid starting new projects?!?

I like the flying geese block and have been following your pins for a while. This would make a terrific stash buster project.
