I hope you are having fun sewing along for the Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail? If you haven't been sewing along, there's still time to join in.
I'm hosting Round 3 this week -- Flying Geese.
There are several ways to make flying geese blocks. I like using my EZ Quilting Flying Geese ruler because there is no wasted fabric. Dena suggested paper piecing the flying geese so I could make different sizes. It sounded like a great idea, so out came the paper and pencil.
Once I added the left and right sides, I debated skipping the top and bottom. I had my fill of paper piecing by this point. I don't paper piece often because I don't like the process (although I do like the precision). Clearly I forgot any skills I thought I had.
This piece now measures 27 inches. There are four more rounds to make.

It is a perfect addition! Love the intensity of the colors.ReplyDelete
I love your geese! I know you got tired of the process, but oh how nicely it turned out.ReplyDelete
Wow! Fun idea to use the different sizes - such interest it gives the design. Sorry it gave you trouble but no one would know.ReplyDelete
I really like the way your quilt is taking shape, and how well you think out of the box! Love the flying geese border (why didn't I think of paper piecing like this??). Nice work!ReplyDelete
I'm happy you shared your process with making the flying geese like that. I really like the modern look of it. You have given me the courage to try that too and see what I come up with. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Very creative geese Anja - they really keep with your modern themeReplyDelete
I love these purples! Such fun to have different sized geese. I like the asymmetrical-ness of geese on two sides; I think it goes well with your overall quilt so far. I also don't particularly love the process of paper piecing, so solidarity on that one!ReplyDelete
I love your border. Thanks for showing the design details. I need to think on this one ... :) PatReplyDelete
What a cool idea - to use different sized flying geese!! They look great and add a lot of interest to this quilt!!!ReplyDelete
Happy Quilting! :-)
I love flying geese borders. Yours is so awesome with the different colors and different sizes!ReplyDelete
You went above and beyond with these flying geese. Love what you have done.ReplyDelete
Love your flying geese! A great idea to vary the size!ReplyDelete
I cant find the FLYING GEESE pATTERN: Please cAN YOU HELP ME? I cant do it by my own. Sorry for my bad english.
Great flying geese, I love how there are several different aspect ratios.ReplyDelete
SEW many different variations on a theme are linked-up. Who knew there were more than 20 ways to use Flying Geese in a quilt?! As usual, I'm running behind on this round and missed the link-up, Anja.ReplyDelete
