Block 8 Instructions

Are you ready to take off?

The Flying North block was created for this quilt and was inspired by flying geese blocks.

Sponsor and Prize of the Week

Hobbs Bonded Fibers is our sponsor of the week! This week they are providing one lucky winner from the US a queen size package of Heirloom Premium 80/20 Fusible Cotton/Poly Batting!

Hobbs Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Fusible Cotton/Poly Blend Batting is a double-sided, iron-on batting. This product eliminates the need for the time-consuming step of pin- or spray-basting and enables you to create your quilt ‘sandwich’ in no time at all!
