Here is the link to the Video with Ricky Tims showing how to do the one seam flying geese Just click on the highlighted sentence.
Now...gotta give credit where credit is due. Was talking to sister Jeanette, Inchworm Fabrics, she sent me to Ricky Tims video knowing I would love it. Also, ignore her comments about me on her post, I really am the nice sister...truly.
I asked her how she found it and she said our sister Margaret, The average quilter, mentioned it on her blog about finding an easier way to do flying geese.
While I am on the topic of this sister....she is one amazing quilter, she does quilts that I could only dream of doing. Infact, she is doing a quilt to enter in JoAnn's Fabric contest, go over and check it out...amazing...that is all I have to say about that...just amazing.
I wish I had known about this method when doing this quilt....sheweeee!!!
Soooooooooooooooo after seeing the video....I couldn't help but make some and I tell you what...this is so easy and fast, these twelve flying geese were sewn up in record speed. Like Margaret said, the most time consuming part is the ironing....you know how I love to iron...
So I had to make some smaller ones...
Then I had to do something with the 12 flying geese...and I made this cosmetic bag and used my vynl on the inside. The vynl was easy to use and these colors are not the best (wanted to use trial fabrics and just chose these cos it wouldn't bother me if they got messed up)...but I know someone that will love an ugly cosmetic bag.....so no worries.
The night is still young and so, maybe I will make some more flying geese...hummmmmm
or some oatmeal cookies, or both? Remember, you are sleeping when I make this post...so when I am sleeping you will be reading it tomorrow...
