Part 3 Primitive Sew along quilt, and a contest!

Hello friends! This is a small one, but we can have more fun later in the week with a second installment! We will be making three flying geese units, as the one in the first post, only one of the units will only have 5 flying geese, and the other two will have 6! Go to the first post, and get those instructions, if you didn't write it down! The other block is a cute little basket block! You will find the instructions below the picture!

For the contest.....help me name this quilt! You must be a follower of both the primitive Quilts and Projects blog, and of my Jeni from the Willow blog, post a comment (on either blog), with what you would name the quilt......there will be lots of things in the quilt such as, pumpkins, a cat, a flag, more flower type blocks, and etc... So let's see what you can come up with! We will go through all the titles, and judge to find the one we like best! That will be the winner, who will receive a beautiful package of my assorted 10" square hand-dyed wool pieces! So get thinking! I will pick the winner on Sept. 20th.
Here are your blocks....and don't sew these onto the previous units just yet!

Step one....
* make a half square triangle unit (HST) by cutting one light, and one medium 4 1/2" square. Draw a diagonal line on the back of the light square, put them right sides together and sew a seam 1/4" away from the drawn line on both sides. Cut on drawn line, press open, and square to 3 1/2". You will only need one for this block.
Step two...
*make two (HST) units, as above, using a light and medium 2 1/2" square. Square up to 1 1/2" each. You will need both for this block.
Step three...
*cut two rectangles from the light fabric 1 1/2" x 2 1/2", and one 1 1/2" square.
Step four...
Lay pieces out as in the diagram above, and sew together.
Step five...
* make a bias strip from the medium fabric (I use the Clover Bias tape makers) that finishes at 1/2" x 4 1/2", and curve it with an iron and spray baste. Pin in place and appliqué!
Happy sewing, and good luck with the contest!
Jeni...who is loving all the photographs you are sending me!! Thank you so much!!
