I have been busy with lots of sewing!
Successful flying geese! :)
I was so happy with the mini fit to be geese ruler I blogged about earlier, that I bought the larger ruler.
I have tried several different flying geese techniques before and I have found this ruler is the one that I am happiest with. There is very little wasted fabric. This little pile of scraps....
.....is the waste from these flying geese..
I don't have a pile of little triangles I need to find a use for and I am not throwing out flying geese blocks because they have turned out too small or the angles are out. All problems I have struck trying other techniques.
Kathie also posted about this ruler recently.
Here are my flying geese sewn in a quilt. Just a sneak peek because its more secret sewing. :)
Monique Dillard, who designed the Fit to be Geese rulers has also written some books. (Monique also designs fabric) Her techniques and quilt designs are featured in these books.
I have a couple of fat quarter packs these books will be perfect for.
Another package in the mail revealed this..........
The pattern for Kim McLean's latest quilt, Pandemonium. Isn't it an amazing quilt!!
Just 2 more little houses.
You will notice one house is the mirror image of the other! I cut out the roof section of the house on the right the wrong way around! Instead of starting all over again (plus it was the only scrap I had like it), I decided to make the whole house the other way around. When it is in the quilt, no one will notice!
Currently I am also machine quilting 2 small quilts (pictures to come later).
Trailing vines is coming along well. I have almost finished the first panel!!! Yay! Can't wait till I have 2 panels made so I can join then with the sashing.
Hmmm...OK, I am a Gemini, so I "need" to have enough going on to keep 2 people occupied! Lol
It has been ages since I worked on Friends of Baltimore or Roseville Album, but they are certainly not forgotten.
Finally I have managed to get a half decent photo of my quilting and blogging buddy.
Meet Jasper, who is often found sharing my lap with my hand stitching.
Thank you to everyone who offered a solution to the quilt cleaning question in my previous post.
Ok...back to sewing...and
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers who read my blog. :)
