    Back after twelve months away

    Hello board members - back after twelve months.

    My interest in quilting remains and over the last fortnight I have made two quilt tops (well almost) and I would like you to direct me to the correct place within your forum framework where I can ask advice about a few problems I am having.

    One of the tops is simply 6" squares pieced awaiting borders - procrastinating as to colour selection. The other is an attempt at flying geese which I'm having a few problems with.

    They are for two of my grandchildren - important to me, but I see them as a good way to develop technique.

    Please direct me to the correct sub forum where I can post images and questions.

    All the best, good to be back - Mal
    Cheers, Mal from Cessnock AU

    Thanks for your kind welcome.

    I'm going to organise a design wall so I can take some images of the two quilts in question and then post to the "main" forum.

    Welcome back from central Florida. Billie Lauder is on www.youtube.com with quick quilting tricks with a really quick and easy way to make flying geese. Good luck.

    One piece flying geese

    This is a good way to do the flying geese in one piec.

    Excellent - looks like it doubles your fabric usage tho (am I right?)

    Love to see a man sew

    Another great method to make Flying Geese - I used the method illustrated by Eleanor Burns which seems to use a little of Billie's and a little of Ricky's.

    Thanks again to everyone for your kind welcome back.

    So much to learn...
