A Small Update

It's been a few weeks since I've posted and there is absolutely no reason for that except that I am having the laziest summer on record. As you know, I was thrown for a loop with my change in job assignment in the past year. My husband and I took full advantage of being empty nesters and filled our weekends with activities and short trips. It was a busy year. So I've been happy to stay close to home this summer and recover. I've been reading a lot, doing some heavy cleaning and ruthless decluttering along with some stitching and lots of quilting.

I've taken the time to do some experimenting with a ruler to make flying geese (Deb Tucker's Wing Clipper--no affiliation, just the ruler I chose to buy at a quilt show). These geese finished at 1x1.5" and were made from scraps from a project that is nearly pieced. I'll be taking a class in the fall that has flying geese in the pattern so I wanted to be sure I remembered how to use the ruler.

These small squares were made from the scraps from a jelly roll quilt that I will show you in the near future. They'll finish at 1" and I'm thinking they might be used to make a cute mug rug or perhaps be incorporated into one of the coin purse patterns I've been wanting to try. We'll see. After all, it's not even August which means I have four more weeks with nothing but time on my hands.


  1. The flying geese look nice! The HSTs too. I'm no good at such things -- I've lost the touch in the break I took from quilting. Oh well.

  2. Hi, returning the following! Love your quilts, it's not something I would ever do so it's nice to be able to see other people's works of art.
    Happy Stitching

  3. Nice job on the flying geese! I am okay with HST but iffy on the flying geese. I need to write down the name of the ruler you used.
