Come fly with me, Let's fly, Let's fly away....

For some reason, whenever I think about this quilt Frank Sinatra rolls into my mind and Come Fly with Me gets stuck in my head.

So...here it is...."Due South" by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
Bonnie at the shop quilted it with a small overall meander and I had her also use a wool batting.

The pattern calls for 10 star blocks positioned helter-skelter....I needed just one more for the bottom corner so I used my scraps to make this little cutie....I think it's my favorite part of the whole quilt. Also, the points aren't cut off on the bottom, I just took a bad picture...they're all there in real life!

This quilt is currently hanging at the shop, but I can't wait till all the kits sell because it looks so at home on my couch...I just want to lay down, snuggle in and watch a good movie.

Kits and patterns are available...you all should put this one on your Christmas list...doesn't it just scream heirloom quilt??? Okay, maybe not....but....it was a fun one to make!
What are you working on right now? I'd love to hear!

That is just gorgeous! Looks like Civil War prints?? Wish I liked doing flying geese. I'm working on some wooly gifts that will probably end up as Valentine gifts at the rate I'm going!
