A few posts back I mentioned quilting rulers and what an improvement they have made to my piecing.
Lately I've been a little fixated with flying geese. An obsession traced back to this quilt.
I had a play around with a few blocks myself.
And then got sidetracked by the blue and white shirting quilt. These two blocks are draped over my airing rack and will possibly be added to when the urge strikes.
As well as a classic flying geese ruler for cutting the triangles, I invested in possibly my favourite ruler to date - the Wing Clipper. This ruler is used to trim down the little geese blocks after you've stitched them.
It works a treat and I love the perfect little blocks I end up with. They are much more satisfying to put together when they're this accurate.
I wish I'd known about these tools when I was inpsired to make this quilt years back. Unfortunately it hasn't progressed. I pulled out all the blocks to trim them down and they were a mess of odd sizes. As a result I'm not sure this quilt will make it any further.
