On Monday night, after cleaning the bathroom and vacuuming, I rewarded myself by making the flying geese for the Summer Solstice quilt along, with Melissa from Happy Quilting.
But as I laid them out on the ironing board after the final press, something looked wrong. Why was there so much seam allowance past the tip of the goose? So then I sighed, and shook my head, and went to bed.
Do you realize what I did? Yes, I used the drunkards path squares for the flying geese instead of the squares I cut for the wings. This is what I call a design opportunity. And an excuse to play in my stash, because I don’t have enough of these fabrics to cut another set of drunkards path squares, so here is my fabric pull for new squares. Hmm, I wonder if I should use even more fabrics to increase the scrappiness.
But it’s only fabric, and I’m sure I can figure out something to do with the other pieces. Next however I need to trim all these geese… Linking up to Melissa at Happy Quilting and Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.
