Design Wall Monday: Step 2, Christmas gifts, and a flimsy
My accomplishments this week:
* 128 Flying Geese for Easy Street, Step 2. I usually use the cut-off corner method for FG. This time I am following Bonnie's directions as well has her pattern so I used the EZ and Companion Angle rulers for these geese. Despite what I consider to be careful cutting and sewing, I had a dozen under-sized units and I had to trim a few others. Practice makes perfect!
* Five potholders that will be Christmas gifts. The block is an Ohio Star variation -- 9" finished. It was fun to choose different Christmas fabrics for each one. I used Insul-Brite and a piece of batting inside.
* Blue/brown D9P blocks assembled and bordered. The flimsy is about 78 x 78.
