Welcome to Week 1! If you were following along in Stars month, this week will be a repeat because Flying Geese work great in Variable Star blocks. But I did ad a few tips, because if you're like me, my Flying Geese just don't always turn out right. But I've been practicing and am being much more careful with my 1/4" seams now.
For those of you just joining us, you might not know that I'm a terrible piecer. I love applique and crazy quilting - neither require precise piecing. So I've been using this tutorial series to brush up on my own skills. I'm finding that I'm finally over my fear of piecing! So I queried the quilters around here (there are many!) and asked for their tips on perfecting the Flying Geese block, then tried them myself.
Next week I've got two more methods for constructing this block without any specialty tools.
Have you ever tried either of these methods? Do you have a preference?
