I needed a good scrap fix....
A while back I had cut up two bins of fabric and am left with a box full
of half square triangles... I think I actually wore out my go cutter blades!
They are not cutting so well anymore after all that!
I deliberated over it for along time trying to decide what clever thing I could do with them,
but in the end, I've decided to just make the flying geese quilt I always wanted...
I find when there is a quilt I wan to make that I LOVE so much I can never just make it that way,
I always get sidetracked and it becomes something else... why is that?
do you relate?
A simple HST quilt is so beautiful, and I have never made one...
so. geese it is... Let's see if I can stick to it..
I dug out EVERY RED I had, and I am cutting it all up... I have quite a stash of red,
as I think, besides yellow, "Red" is my go-to color...
I don't think I am going to have enough big triangles to make this a king size...LOL
I have a feeling I will get bored before I get that big.
What do you think?
I do have a load of smaller triangles so I think what I will do is cut some big red's
and flip flop every other row... scrappy geese, red geese, scrappy geese etc...
I've made 14 so far... that's a good start for today....
if I did 31 a day... (need 31per row (for king) LOL
maybe I can get it done before Boo finished school on the 10th?
What do you think? Can I do it?
or will I get bored and shelve this project...
Does string piecing bore you to tears?
or do you love it?
I love how it looks but I do get very bored...
now that I have done a mosaic of
how it might look,
perhaps I will persevere!
