So, things have been wild around here and there’s been miniscule progress made in the sewing room. However, tiny bits of progress is still forward movement and no one can be upset about that!
I finished one of my deadline projects, and you’ll get to see the full quilt on Thursday. Until then I can share the binding – it’s so cool! You might have seen this pic on my Instagram feed but if you missed it here it is:
I love that striped print! Stay tuned for more details later in the week.
I am also in the middle of writing a new pattern, and have been making test blocks. These blocks include flying geese which is a bit unusual for me. I’m not the best at making flying geese – they always look so wonky to me and I have to do a bunch of trimming to get them sized right. So what do I do? Design a quilt that uses lots of them! Guess I’ll get better at making them by the time this pattern is finished. 🙂
Do you find flying geese difficult to make?
I’m using the ‘four at a time’ method, along with the Wing Clipper ruler by Studio 180 Designs. I’m generally not a specialty ruler kind of girl but using the wing clipper, along with very careful stitching, allowed me to achieve perfectly sized FG units. I’m finding that I’m not as bothered about making flying geese as I used to be!
This week I’ll be traveling to Lancaster, PA to attend the AQS show with my sister and a couple of our girlfriends. I’m excited to go, but snow is in the forecast so I’m a little nervous about it. We may be stranded at Sis’s house – but I guess we’ll just have a few sew days if that happens. No matter what, we will have fun!
I hope you have a great week and get to work on your projects. I’ll be taking some things along with me to work on, and I’m crushing big on the quilt show and sewing time with Wissa.
