WEEK eight - WHAT CAROL DID
Worked on blocks 22, 23 AND 24. Started making Flying geese for the inner border of my shuffle quilts.
With my baby quilt fabrics, I made 3 versions of block 23- I stitched the first one together wrong then swapped the colors out on the other 2. & decided to keep all 3 of them
To make my Shuffle blocks into a quilt, I will be using MODA's setting pattern for both of my sets .
Have you seen this setting pattern? CLICK HERE to take a look at it.
So here we are already 8 weeks along and working on blocks 22 to 24. It is high time I ought to start working on the 144 flying geese I will need for the inner border that MODA's setting pattern uses.
Wait ....what? 144? Yes ma'am that's twelve dozen! Egads that's enough to spell the word 'MODA' over and over again.
With that many to make I thought I would get going, get organized , do a little chain piecing and have some stacks of geese to show for my effort.
Now there are probably a dozen different ways to stitch together a goose . So please use your favorite method.
I put together a picture blog slide show to show you what I did to make the geese. This is not something I invented but is one way I have done it when there are a LOT of flying geese units needed. Scroll down to view.
