I am all done with flying geese











Well, at least for this project - the Cool Flying Geese quilt.
These small ones are for 2 borders; in total I made 200 flying geese for this quilt. 
I need a small break from this one, before I'll put it together.

























It feels like we are back in the winter; as I am writing this, it is sleeting outside
(yes, this is snow settling on our window).




Quiltmania BOM makes a welcome distraction
Last week they published 2 new blocks, no's 5 & 6.

I started with no 6 (it seems little easier), which is again an applique block.

This was the first time I used a fusible web when making a bias tape
( I bought the fusible web at the show - see my last week's post).
You feed the fabric and fusible web into the tape maker at the same time,




 to get a slightly sticky bias tape, with just enough bonding to hold the tape temporarily in place, while sewing it on.



Add few leaves and a couple of hearts - 



and another block is done.

  7. A neat little gadget, always something new to investigate. I can believe you want a rest from Flying geese for a while. It will look great when it is all put together.
