A Growing Gaggle

What? You're tired of looking at pictures of geese? You are? Well, there are still at least 100 to go.

I make twenty at a time. If I try to make more than two batches per day, my accuracy suffers.

I need 600 for the project. But I'm planning on actually making 640 so I have more flexibility.

My besties and I are going to Black Rock at the end of April and that is when/where the assembly of the Blind Man is scheduled. So I have plenty of time to complete the gaggle.

Today I'm going to take a goose break. I have last week's Project 48 block unmade and now they newest one is demanding attention.

It's not like those geese are going to fly south if I take a day away from them.

I'm making flying geese in solids too -- but my flock hasn't grown much in the past year.

No, never tired of seeing these. They intrigue me, and I can't wait to see the quilt come together.

Applause at your diligence and for giving yourself permission to take a day off from sewing more geese!!

Do you make these Flying Geese by the method that gives you 4 identical Flying Geese and very little fabric waste at a time? That is the tried and true method I've used for nearly 20 years after reading about it in a book titled "All the Blocks are Flying Geese" by Mary Sue Suit, pages 8-11. I know there are several rulers that are for this purpose, but none I've bought work as well as the method in this book.

I look forward to seeing this quilt grow in the coming months!

Hugs!
