I made more than 80 flying geese units for this quilt, a wall hanging size piece. At least I proved that I could! The soft floral fabrics came from a Moda charm set. They are delightful and make me think of having high tea on a flower-filled patio on a warm summer’s day.
I liked the technique, which came from Carrie Nelson’s Schnibbles book – you just cut squares, layer them, sew and cut. No cutting of triangles needed. It seemed quite accurate.
October and November slipped away from me in a flurry of birthdays and holidays. And now it’s December. Perhaps I’ll get back to this project in January, after the hustle of the holidays and the deadlines of work ease up a bit!
Also on the horizon: another charm square project, using batiks; some pouches; and, eventually, trying crazy quilting. (Because yes, I am crazy!)
