I bought a new toy - a ruler specific for Flying Geese called a Wing Clipper.
It works GREAT! I know there are various geese rulers out there. I liked this one because you can make a variety of different geese sizes. Trimming was easy.
And now I have a gaggle of geese in two different sizes. I'm going to use these for star blocks.
(I just love the neat birds nest of trimmings in the photo background. Not much waste at all.) Note my use of wooden clothespins. I find it to be a great tool for my quilting - it is a nice way to keep piles together without using pins.
I've assembled my geese into stars. This is the layout I am thinking about for the center of the quilt. What do you think? When I originally set out to make this quilt, I had purchased a whole bunch of fabric and decided that this quilt would be far too busy. I decided to take this iconic print as far as I could with the yard that I had. (Colors are more true in the photo above.)
