Itchy fingers and flying geese



Do you have fingers that are itching to sew but you don't have a specific project in mind? Try flying geese. All you need is a pile of scraps to start with. They cut very quickly and sew up lickety-split. Then the fun comes. The first one I like. The second needs more work. Still isn't there but I'm not done yet. It definitely has possibilities. Don't ya luv it when your project talks to you? I'm still having a conversation with this one. More to come on these geese. Happy sewing!

I need to work more with triangles. they intimidate me and my points are usually pretty off. That being said--I should just play more!

Fantastic! That first one is poppin! It's great when the fabric just lets you know what to do with it, isn't it?

I've been gone on a trip so I'm catching up with what everyone has been working on. I love the colors and possibilities for layout of your flying geese. I forget that plain color fabrics look really good. I need to add more to my stash.
