I have Eleanor Burns Flying Geese 3x6/1.5x3 ruler, so I tried that method. Here are the steps in photos:
The other method I tried was to cut goose fabric into rectangles and background fabric into squares.
Verdict: The second method saved over five minutes per pair of geese. The second method also gave me four more half square triangle blocks for some other project. I make that seam before I press and trim off the excess.
The other two methods of making geese are perfectly fine, but now I know which method is faster.
I have the fishing panel with its flying geese borders finished, and am waiting for batting and backing to arrive. While I was hopeful that my college girl would hold it so I could get a photo while she was home for Thanksgiving, that didn't happen, but we had a joyful Thanksgiving.
I need to figure out a way to create a wall for taking photos of my quilts somewhere in this small house. I've photographed a lot of quilt tops and quilts outside, but with winds up to 55 mph today, the outside is definitely not a choice. (Driving to and from church was a bit unpleasant today; we're experiencing the first of three consecutive storm systems. Hopefully, they'll be through here by Thursday or so!)
Happy quiltmaking, knitting, sewing, and crafting,
