Hi everyone,another day another blog! As you’ve probably guessed I am really into this blogging. I find it so much fun to get my thoughts down and communicate with you all out there.
Today I thought that I would write another very simple tutorial on another favorite of mine, the flying geese.I like to make them in a very basic way, though there are other ways that I will only briefly mention in this tutorial, but another day I can get into it further.
So, here goes…
We are all infatuated with jelly rolls these days, and the 2 1/2″ strips are very cool, so I am using 2 1/2″ as my measurement here, but really any size will do.I’ve cut 1 piece 2 1/2’x5″ and two pieces are cut into 2 1/2″ squares.
Two units of 2 1/2″ by 2 1/2″ are used for the sides as you can see in the photo above.
Next, you place each of the two squares on each side of the 2 1/2″ by 5″ rectangle then using a ruler draw a diagonal line to sew on. It will look like the photo above, so go ahead and sew! After sewing you will need to cut with your rotary cutter 1/4″ away from the sewn line, then flip the piece back and like magic you have a perfect flying geese!
So, that was the basic, very few tools involved way of making geese. There are so many ways to use your geese. That will be another blog entry I will be posting.
One more thing that I wanted to mention…If you prefer, Kimberly Einmo has a wonderful Flying Geese ruler that I love too!You can check it out on her website. I use both methods, just what ever suits my fancy at the time.
I hope that this is clear, if you have any questions let me know, I’d be happy to answer you!
So, until next time, have a lovely day! Thanks for stopping by…
