It's Quilty Box time! Note: this post will contain affiliate links that help support our business. Quilty Box is a subscription treasure box filled with fabric, thread, and a quilt pattern created by a different designer. Click Here to learn more about Quilty Box.

Each month I open my Quilty Box, plan a new project, and share how to make it with you. I love the challenge of writing a new quilt pattern, shooting videos, and creating a new quilt and I hope you will join in the fun too! Click Here to find all of the free quilt patterns I've shared so far.

In this Quilty Box I was delighted to find a beautiful collection of fabrics and supplies selected by fabric designer and quilter Masako Wakayama, a Japanese quilter who designs traditional American-folk style quilts. That's just plain cool!

We received lots of Masako's beautiful fabric, including a cute printed fabric panel with flowers, houses, birds, and more printed on the surface. Learn what I did with this fabric panel in this new quilting tutorial:

I decided to piece a flying geese border using Masako's fabric to surround the printed fabric panel. Piecing a border from multiple pieces is a lot more tricky than just piecing a plain fabric border with fabric strips and I admit - this is one of my least favorite things to piece because it has to be so EXACT.

Make sure to watch the video to find many tips on piecing a flying geese border and you can find all the exact cutting and piecing instructions in the free quilt pattern.

Let's go quilt,
