Yeah, well, I was away all weekend and although I took my sewing machine, I couldn’t take my entire stash (wait, I could have, but I had to make a hard decision). So today after returning home, I cut out the pieces for step 2 (note, this link will expire but you can download the pdf now if you want to keep it).
After reading the instructions, I was excited to think I could use my still-shiny Accuquilt Go, but after returning home I realized I didn’t have the correct die sizes for this clue. I’m actually a little confused about the value of this device at this point–to have to spend $30 to $50 for each die, or more for a set, in order to make a different size of block? I purchased the 8″ qube and 8″ companion sets, since their base unit size is 4″ finished.
So anyway, back to the fabric for this clue, I used the Fons and Porter flying geese ruler (because, duh, these are flying geese). If I go slow and pay attention to the seam allowance these should work out okay. I remember when I made Easy Street it had the same size of units, and I ended up using the 4-at-a-time flying geese method because I was having trouble with accuracy. My pieces from clue #1 are here.
What are your tips for maintaining accuracy of flying geese? Anyone use the 4-at-a-time for this clue?
Linking up to Bonnie at Quiltville for the clue #2 linkup.
