Stitch Pink Block 8

Geese.  Flying.  Home?  Maybe it's the red, it reminds me of "ruby slippers"... there's no place like home.

Fly Away Home is also a movie I liked.  It dramatized the story of Canadian arist and naturalist, William Lishman, who became the first person to lead a flight of Canadian geese with an aircraft.

If you're using a Stitch Pink Grunge Kit, the kind folks in Quality Control have added a notation to cut a 10-1/4" square of Grunge #30150 254 for Block 14 before cutting the B square.

Are you a fan of Bloc-Loc rulers?  This block would use the Bloc-Loc Flying Geese ruler for 1-1/2" x 3" Finished size.  The C, D, and E squares will be cut a bit larger - 1/4" for D and E, and 3/8" larger for C.  The Simple Folded Corner ruler also works here, especially if you over-size the small triangles.

I think I'm going to need a Stitch Christmas quilt.  Soon.  This is Greg's block, mixing Fig Tree's Christmas Figs II and Corey Yoder's Holliberry.  Both collections are in shops now.

And a Stitch Susan.

The fabrics Susan pulled for her quilt were inspired by Halloween, and her blocks include a mix of Black, Green, Orange, and Gray.  I love that she used two backgrounds, one for the geese and one for the large HTSs.

The last thought to share today, from What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen.

Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map.  It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together.  Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go.

I hope you're home today.

Stay well and we'll be back tomorrow.
