Downloaded. Thank you,
Your posts help me so much.
I'd miss the whole thing if left to my own memory...
I want to be the kind of woman that when my feet hit the floor each morning the devil says: "Oh NO! She's UP!"
Printed mine! Will be out to the cutting and sewing space very soon. DH just told me, "Won't be home for lunch" YEAH!! That is like giving me lots more time to play. Joyce
I printed it this morning but am pushing it aside so I can work on Christmas for the next couple of weeks...
Here is a photo of my sample flying geese. Bonnie's tute really did help!
Now to start the REAL production line! I have the complete set of the West Wing and a new DVD player to keep me company!
...and here are my purples...
..and now I am ready to cut, trim, press and sew the second side. I'm cooking with gas, lol!
KC, I was puzzled at first about this statement - I thought you were talking about the wings on the geese and wondered how you could tell the west wing from the east wing. LOL!
OMG I was amused to say the least! as the saying goes "just wing it"
I did make a couple samples using Bonnie's method..My 1st was too big by about 3/8th inch,adjusted my 1/4 stitch and ended up about 1/8 too short so when I'm ready to cut and sew I'll perfect that stitch and use her method...
you are one mean sewing machine there, girl! do you have enough chocolate? Havarti smoked cheese and crackers? tea?
"It's bad to supress laughter. It goes back down and spreads to your hips."
No chocolate (I get migraines), but lack of sleep. Suprised I haven't sewn my finger again, lol!
All my geese are done and packed on top of my four-patches. I'm working later, so I will get a head start on cutting those 64 pieces of 2" x 3 1/2" of b & w prints.
I did, however, use steam to flatten the trimmed geese. I hate the flapping!
...and here are my homework pieces ready for step three!
How do you know what Step 3 is??? Did I miss something at Cam Night???
Well, the pieces were marked on the end of step two, so if they are not for step three, they will be used during one of the other steps.
Ahhh! I looked but I do not see them in the PDF...I'll go look in the other one.
Duh..I found it with a little help...This message has been edited. Last edited by: TcMay,
KC I have a question for you...when you cut out your wings for geese did you layer the B/W how you were going to pair them up or make piles of similiar and then choose as you sewed?
I am looking to be more stream lined in my sewing and you get done so fast.
I love how we learn from each other on this forum.
I also like your assortment of lights, have you been collecting them?
Quilt cam time later today!
I have a vast collection of B & W fabrics to pick from.
As far as laying out my W on B fabrics, I followed Bonnie's tute on flying geese, which she shows the proper lay out of fabrics. I then seperates the lefts from the rights, then seperated them by prints. I wanted to ensure that they used equally in my pieces.
If you don't own the Easy Angle ruler or want a simple way to make the flying geese, check out this blog for a quick tute.
How are those geese gonna fly if they can't flap their wings??? Seriously, though, I agree that they need a good steam pressing.
Thanks so much KC for Emily's blog! I could NOT figure out how the heck I was going to get flying geese the right size out of 4 1/4" squares LOL Have the day off so will strip piece today NOW that I UNDERSTAND! Miss all you gals here! Work is just kicking my buns
Treat your body like you will live forever
