The above Pinwheels are made with the half square triangle and introducing more color.
Below are the flying geese using the technique "Fast Flying Geese". There is no changing the method you use. These are all cut out and ready to mark and sew. It is a great way to learn new techniques. I asked if we could use E Burns Quilt in a Day Ruler and was told yes and make sure it is the small one. Well I didn't realize there is a size 2 1/2 x 4 and my small ruler is 1 1/2 x 3. The first goose I cut was not the right size. Should have read twice and cut once. Checked online and there is the other ruler. Ms Desert Rose gave me one of her demo goose.
Should have looked sooner instead of struggling with a V shape, tiny space for ironing large quilts.
I have several Yahoo Groups that Yahoo will not allow satellite users to access them. It was fine till last week and they shut us off from all groups. So I have to go to Mickie D's to look at the files, chat and download information. What a pain but the coffee is good and afordable...$.52/cup! I have now switched most of my mail to GMail.
