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.

  1. You managed to accomplish a lot. Great job! Love the Christmas potholders.

  2. Great potholders and so Christmas-y! I'm also very impressed with your "Bonnie" quilts list of completions. Good work!

  3. Wow, you got loads done this week. The flying geese look lovely as do the potholders and quilt top.

  4. Hi,
    thanks for nice comment!
    Every year I try to understand the Bonnie display and every year I mistake... only Bonnie is like Bonnie :)
    See You next step...

  5. You have been busy! I like the Christmas potholders very much.

  6. I love the quilt but your potholders have given me a great idea! Thanks

  7. Love the pot holders I am going to make some for my grandson he's five and wants an easy bake oven for christmas

  8. Wow! You're the energizer bunny! I won't even say how many geese are still waiting in the wings! Lookin good!

  9. I have never seen a D9P on point before, I really like that. I use the D9P for kids comfort quilts cuz they are so easy: I may try that on point for the next one, just to vary it a bit. Thanks. By the way, great job on your Easy Street. I will be done with Step 2 today.
