I love a Saturday spent sewing! All the rest of the geese for the baby quilt got assembled, and then I waited for DD Elaine to come over after her mommy-to-be afternoon rest so that we could play layout. Auntie-to-be Erica helped play too.
Nine sets of geese all pointy and bright.
Up and down the geese fly in rows.
I will assemble them in vertical rows to make matching the many seam intersections easier. Before getting too tired last night, I did sew two rows together and then pinned the other two sets together, all ready to go under the needle today. To get nice flat geese, I clipped the seams on the tip of the triangles and pressed it upward, while pressing the remainder towards the next goose--I'll show that in another post when I get a picture. The joined row seams will be pressed open. Then I'll add narrow borders of background fabric to make the geese float. While I stitch, I'm thinking about how to quilt this. It will probably be in straight lines to keep a modern look. I've got the backing and binding fabrics washed but not ironed. Really happy with the way this is coming together so far!
