So many cut off corners from my Tula Strings quilt just begging to be used for their own quilt. I have been wanting to do a quilt of all flying geese for some time – perfect opportunity! First, there was all the trimming of the triangles. The adding of the solids was done while at a sew-in with friends – it took forever! The final trimming of the blocks seemed to take more than forever. There was a lot of arranging on the design wall, rearranging, and yes, rearranging some more. The blocks occupied the design wall for at least a couple of weeks.
Then there was the sewing. Oh so much sewing! Each section I placed back on the design wall did get me excited. All in all, it did not take nearly as long as it seemed and the best part? I’m very pleased with the result!
There were some of the flying geese leftover and they were NOT going into the orphan block container. The backing was the best place for them and it made for a more interesting backing.
