As you know from the prior post, I'm presently working on the 1,700 pieced flying geese quilt and thought I would blog a bit more about how I organized this project.
As you can imagine, having 5,100 pieces to sew together can be quite daunting! By organizing the pieces accordingly (see prior post) it makes this quilt quite manageable.
For this quilt, I decided that it was best to use a bin to organize my bags, this way I am less likely to lose anything.
When the quilting mood hits me (ok, I'm in a perpetual quilting mood) I grab a bag of each and the piecing starts.
For this quilt, I'm using the tool - Sew Straight ... It's perfect for this method of piecing flying geese!
I love that tool!
If you own the Angler 2, it is pretty much the same thing except that you do not have a valuable installation piece that you can lose! The Sew Straight lines up directly on your machine and it comes with great instructions.
Voila! One hundred (100) flying geese pieced!
Time to trim .....
And before you know it, you've just pieced and trimmed 100 flying geese! I now have a mere 1,600 more to go! lol
Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyber space! Happy quilting!
