    Yet another quilt top from my stash... I had two yards of all of these and very little left of any of them... I have the binding already cut from the lavender... the top is 78x78
    When I make the flying geese units I use the 'square' method (cut squares, sew corner to corner on the diagonal) and then make another seam before cutting off the excess - then wind up with a nice stack of half-square triangle squares already done!

    It's kind of nice to dig through the stash and find stuff I had set aside for a quilt and finally getting around to getting some of them done!
    Maybe my moratorium on buying any more fabric will last more than just one year!

    Wow-I love your quilt. The colors are beautiful.
    Thanks for the tip about sewing the extra seam. I always end up with baggies full of the small triangles that I plan to get around to someday--this really makes sense. Thank you!

    I'm trying to see how you put that together - what are the blocks in that? When I do it mentally I come up with 2 different sized blocks (which then would be attached in rows)...

    single squares, flying geese, 4 square block, large block..
    done in single row, double row, single row...
    figgered it out in EQ!!
    only I don't know how to do 'elements' (flying geese) in EQ - or even if you can, so used a rectangle, then printed out the outline and made flying geese by hand on the page then used my colored pencils - sheesh...
    I'd like to think there's a way to do that in EQ but it was easier for me to just do it that way than try to find an elusive way to do something.... LOL

    Really nice! I really like the pink flowered fabric. Sometimes going through our stash is like visiting the fabric store all over again.
