I am loving Easy Street! Thanks to Bonnie's great instructions, I finally have made perfect flying geese that are straight and true, with no trimming required! First, I made some more 4-patches:
Then on to the flying geese - they are so pretty!
I have about 14 different black-on-white, and about 8-10 different greens and I am really pleased with the results. I've changed the colour combination and using lime green in place of the purple. I'm hoping my daughter and her husband like the quilt layout, and if they do, I'm making this king-size.
My finished pieces so far:
Step 1: 4-patch - 111 of est. 300
Step 2: Flying Geese - 73 of est. 200
I used the leftover ends of the strips to make a couple of 3 1/2" crumb blocks.
When I was doing my Orca Bay mystery last year, I used the trimmings from my string blocks to make some crumb blocks in monochromes:
I have no immediate plans for them, but they make a nice decoration in my sewing room. I also make 3 1/2" selvedge blocks and houses:
And even a 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" block from the trimmings of my Union Jack pillow.
Once the line is full, maybe then I'll decide what to do!
