3Cs Quilt Along Row 4

Hi Everyone,

I am sorry I am late with this today. I started my art class today and got all wrapped up in it :) So let's get started:

1. From background fabric Cream Tone one Tone cut:
2- 2 1/2" x 42 1/2" strips
40- 2 3/8" squares
9- 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangles
2- 2" x 8 1/2" rectangles

From each of 10 candy fabrics cut:
1- 4 1/2" square
1- 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" rectangle

2. In an effort not to reinvent the wheel I am going to redirect you to a tutorial written by my friend Sophie. Grab your ten 4 1/2" squares and your forty 2 3/8" squares and go here to learn how to make no waste flying geese. When you are done you will have 40 flying geese that will be nice and accurate and waste free.

3. Take two matching flying geese and the 2 1/2" by 3 1/2" rectangle that matches and sew them together in this order:

4. Grab the other two matching flying geese and add them to each end like this:

Yeah! Candy!

5. Arrange your candy pieces in a pleasing order and sew them together adding the 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangles between each one like so:

6. To each end of the strip of candy add the 2" x 8 1/2" rectangles:

7. Shoot I didn't get a picture but you will sew the 2 1/2" x 42 1/2" strips to the top and bottom of the candy strip.

8. Sew the row to the bottom of the first three rows.

Isn't coming out adorable?

This is what I was up to today. My  first  third attempt and a new art form. IT was the first with any kind of training though :)

It says "She kept on going anyway"

I love your painting, it somehow reminds me of late summer nights! Probably not what you were thinking when creating it :)
And you are almost finished with the quiltalong! Looks so cute!

Your quilt along is coming along nicely! I really like your art project! Is that part of the workshop you are in? I checked that out when you linked to it and thought it looked pretty neat. I wish I was in it, too!
