Hey Color Lovers,
What color comes to mind when you hear the word April? After taking a look at all the curated colors from the AGF Color Master Boxes my eyes went straight to the Lemon Green Edition! The warm fuzzy feeling this group of fabrics gave me when sewing up the Beaming Bright Mini made me dream of freshly squeezed lemonade, bbq's with my family, and our tulips planted in the backyard. Being from Minnesota the grey, cold and dreary days start to take a toll on your spirits. It's amazing how powerful color and light play a role in our happiness. Which is basically what the Lemon Green Color Master Box delivers, happiness in a box. (At least for me :) )
Flying geese lovers get ready to make this zesty looking mini below. Let me know what you think in the comments! Wanna more projects made with this yummy color check out this blog post dedicated to the Lemon Green Color Master Box.

No Waste Flying Geese Method
Take a 5 1/4" square and four 2 7/8" squares. These are the pieces you will need to create four flying geese units. Draw a diagonal lines using a pencil or a water souble pen on the wrong side of the fabric on each 2 7/8" square.
Place two 2 7/8" squares at each corner of your 5 1/4" square. Make sure right sides are together and the diagonal lines match up to make a straight line.
Sew 1/4" on each side of the diagonal line.
Cut piece on the diagonal line you marked.
Now place a 2 7/8" square at the lower corner of your pieces. Sew on each side of the diagonal line you marked at 1/4". Cut piece on diagonal line and press your flying geese open.
Repeat this process for your remaining fabric pieces.
I used the "Yuma Lemons Mist" print for my backing and I love the backing just as much as my quilt top.
