Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

Star Surround Quiltalong - A Huge Flock of Geese A-flying!

Well after last week's marathon session of trimming half square triangles I was hoping for an easier task this week.  I was a little worried when I saw it would be flying geese as I have never been a big fan of making them however all is well!  Melissa has a method of making flying geese which makes it a breeze! You can find this week's instructions here.

First I spent some time ruling lines down the centre of all my white background pieces so I was all ready to roll on my day off.  Two of these are then laid over a large block and you stitch either side of the line as for half square triangles.  Zoom, and they were done!

Slice them up the middle,
 press them open
and repeat with the remaining white background pieces.

Slice them up again,

press them open again, trim off the 'ears' and you're done!

How easy is that?  In a matter of no time You have a huge pile flock of flying geese, done and dusted.

Melissa you are a legend! You can find the link here for Melissa's method for No Waste Flying Geese. Go there, do it, you know you want to!
