My friend Amber had the brilliant idea to start a modern quilting bee with some local girls here in Portland. She asked if I wanted to join and I immediately said, YES! The name of the bee is PDX Bee. Amber started us out this month. She is making a solids quilt with all triangles. We were just asked to make an 18 1/2″ square and use the fabrics she gave us. She also requested the flying geese type of triangle with all of them facing up. I loved making this block! I used Faith’s flying geese paper piecing template for the little ones and the larger one from Quilter’s Cache.
I decided to use white space and liked the idea of descending triangles with one large one at the top. I am starting to like paper piecing a lot! It’s really fun to learn a new skill.
Fabrics are all Kona by Robert Kaufman. I can’t wait to see all the other blocks and how it comes together! My month is next month and I am ready to roll! So excited!
