|One side on the geese|
|Baby geese all finished|
Luckily, "at its heart this is an improv quilt" because I have a pathologic inability to follow directions. I didn't even use a charm pack which is more or less the whole point.... I am using fat quarters so I just cut one strip from the long side of each FQ and then cut it into triangles. I ended up with 5 from each strip and then two half size triangles (one from either end). I had 16 FQs to start so I got 80 big triangles which is exactly what I would have gotten if I had used a charm pack like the pattern says. I decided to make those small triangles into geese too because, well, what else am I going to do with them?
I got a flannel backed tablecloth from walmart so that I could lay out all the geese. I think I'm going to stick with this arrangement, so now I need to start sewing all those geese together. Moment of truth, I hope I don't loose too many points :(
|My new design wall. Oooh. Aaah.|
If I get all these triangles together today maybe I'll go visit the quilt shop and get a backing. I like buying things ^_^
