Quilt Concert: First Notes Block 12

September 3, 2021

Give and Take is a bit of a visual balancing act, but this version of flying geese really helps to bring the quilt together.

Block 12 Instructions

The flying geese in this block are constructed using a different method than we have used before, and I think you’ll like it!

Give and Take is an original block design inspired by flying geese motifs.

Sponsor and Prize of the Week

We are thrilled to have Hobbs Batting as our sponsor again this week! The prize for block 12 is available to all US participants, and it is a Queen Size Package of Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 cotton/poly Black Batting. Black batting is ideal to enhance dark quilts!

It is made using color-fast, dyed cotton fibers to provide quilters with a batting that not only keeps the fabric colors true, it will not create light fiber lint on the quilt top during the quilting process. Think how much time you’ll save by not having to de-lint your newly finished quilt top!
