Perfect Flying Geese Tutorial

Some time it is hard to make a perfect looking flying geese.  Last year at a quilt show I found one of the easiest ways to create them correctly every time.


In this tutorial I will be making a 3" x 6" finished flying geese unit.


1. Cut an rectangle that measures  3 3/4 "  x  6 3/4", normally we would cut each unit  3 1/2" x 6 1/2", but for these you will cut unit 1/4" larger.


2. Cut 2- 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square units for each rectangle you cut.  


3. On the back of each of the square units you need to draw a diagonal line across, this will be your sewing line.


4. Take one of the squares and line it face down on top of one the rectangle ends and sew on the diagonal line.


5.  After you sew on the one square you need to trim away from the seam allowance 1/4".



5. Then you press the lower triangle up toward the sky.


6.  On the opposite side of the rectangle, lay the other square right side down and sew making sure you follow the diagonal line.




7. Like you did on the other side trim off from the seam allowance 1/4" and press open to the sky.




Now you need to trim down.  Now let me show you this neat little tool made by Blocloc, they make varies rulers that help you get accurately measured units, especially flying geese.  They have varies size so you can make most of common sizes of flying geese.




These rulers include the seam allowance  and groove underneath the ruler that fit over the seam allowances.
 


8. Now take the ruler and place on top of the of the flying geese unit, and fit it snuggle against the seam allowances. 


9. Now you need to trim all four sides of the unit, this will square up the unit and it should measure out  at a 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" size unit.


A Perfect Flying Geese unit, love these rulers!!

Easy Street has borders

Last night my mind and body were not in the sewing mood, after a long day of work and good work out.  So tonight, while we are under a Tornado and Thunderstorm warnings, I decide it was a good time for  Easy Street to get borders.  I finished sewing on the smaller purple borders, and then it was just sewing on the turquoise borders to finish. Now I need  to get the material for the backing and it will be ready to be quilted, oh YEAH, I cant wait!!

Tonight was a good night for me receiving mail .  First, I received the borders and backing fabric for my Nancy's Fancy quilt top.  The quilt top is going to have three borders, the two browns are for the outer borders.  Once the lilac fabric comes I can get the borders on the top. I also received the backing for this quilt, I want to get a wide fabric for this quilt top, so I choose this moda fabric.

I also got another package in the mail, my first longarm rulers came. I have been investigating on the internet, and was very interested in using these templates from DeLoa Jones website. So I choose 3 different ones, the boomerang, rope a dopes, and appliquide.  I can't wait to start playing now.

Overall it was a good evening in the quilting world for me.

Starting Borders Easy Street

Since I was able to work from the home today due to weather, and I had a hour before I could start working, I decide to head out to the studio and start cutting the borders for Easy Street. 


I was able to get all the borders cut, 9 - 2 1/2" and 9 - 5" strips.  By that time I was done cutting all of them, it was time to start work.


Then this evening, after my workout I started sewing the smaller purple borders. I only got two sides on this evening.


Hoping to get out in the studio, to finish the other two sides and possible start the outer tomorrow night.  I would like to have it ready to put the backing on this weekend.

First Quilted Piece Complete

Today I completed quilting my first quilt on my Millennium and it went very smoothly.  After having the quilt loaded last night and everything prepared it made the quilting process go very quickly.   


I used "Fantasy Flame", panto by Jessica Schick from Digi-Tech Patterns, The thread I used is Superior Threads So Fine #50, 442- Thistle.


It really was fun to work on a real quilt instead of using a practicing piece of muslin.  I think next time I want to try a different brand of batting to see how it works on the machine.




After I completed the quilting I trimmed off the sides and prepped the quilt for the binding.  I then made the binding and sewed it on to the front of the quilt.


Now just to get the label made and sew the binding on the back of the quilt, a little hand sewing at night.




Now, I need to prep another quilt top and backing for the machine, I can't wait to do another.  I'm in love with working with my Millie.
