Come Fly with Me....

Free Spirit fabric--This is such a yummy selection with beautiful colors. This is another quilt I am sewing for the store. The pattern is "Come Fly with Me". It reminds me of that movie, "Catch Me If You Can" I know that sounds really random.

This is the pattern. The quilt is just strips sewn together with flying geese. It is going to be darling with this fabric. The background for the geese is an ivory bella solid. The quilt is approximately 55 x 75 without borders, but I think I'm going to add borders to mine so I can use it for a twin bed...I have enough quilts that are throws, I don't need one more.

Do any of you have this handy dandy little tool for your rulers? My Aunt Patricia gave this to me last summer at our little quilt retreat. Can I just say how much I LOVE it? It really helps hold your ruler in please and makes cutting out much easier. Do any of you have an 8 1/2" x 24" ruler? I consider this my favorite must have. It is wide enough for borders and I love that extra half inch. I use it all the time.
