It's week THIRTEEN and another block release day of the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew-along! Sharon Holland and I are co-hosting this community sew-along now through early August and as usual, I like to begin each Wednesday by reminding folks just learning about the bee that it's never too late to jump in! We still have quite a few new participants joining us each week, the blocks typically take about an hour, so feel free to join us and play catch-up at anytime! I also love to encourage you all to keep posting to Instagram with #SewcialBeeSampler tagging @sharonhollanddesigns and myself @maureencracknell when you post anything SBS so we can both see and easily keep track of all your wonderful bee posts. We'll continue to try our best to visit with all who join the sew along. We're having so much fun!
Today's free download is for block #13: Flying Geese. I'll be sure to add this new pattern to my Sewcial Bee Sampler Page, so those of you just discovering our bee can find everything you need to begin right in one place! Simply click on the link or the image below for direct access to this week's new SBS pattern!
For my Flying Geese block, I used a combination of Nightfall with Garden Dreamer! Four pretty prints that include Nightfall's Labyrinthine Dawn and Maigical Gust Fog + Garden Dreamer's Moment in Time Light and Flower Dance.
I think I say this every week, but this Flying Geese block is definitely my new favorite! This block is another that doesn't have a frame and we're using the no waste flying geese method we've used already. I've always LOVED making Flying Geese and the method included in this week's pattern is my personal favorite for making multiple units fast and is just so much fun! I'm already planning to make more for today's Soulful fabrics Quilt Market project!
I'm enjoying the SBS for so many reason, and one is getting to see the many new combinations of my fabrics paired together each week that I may have never seen otherwise. I especially love this week's combination!
I'm excited to see the Flying Geese blocks you'll make this week! Be sure to visit Sharon's blog today to see her beautiful versions, and to stop back for details on how to enter this week's Sewcial Bee Giveaway Friday with our wonderful sponsor Needle in a Fabric Stash!
Happy SBS sewing! ♡ Maureen
