Works in Progress!

 Another week of FPP in the Aves quilt BOW.  I love this circular flying geese piece!

I took a trip to my local quilt shop to get my background fabric (and, ahem, just a few more to top up the colour families).  Looking at the box I've got them stored in makes me feel very happy!
 I wasn't sure how I wanted to attach the outer ring to the initial circle.  I ended up machine stitching around each of the appropriate seam lines through the foundation paper and fabric with a big stitch (for easy unpicking) and then appliquing the outer ring to the inner using the stitched lines to guide me.

Of course, I only thought afterwards that I could have made the needle hole lines without thread in.....doh!  Something to remember for the other four circles!
My other WIP is the scrappy triangle quilt.  You can see here the relative piles of trimmed HSTs, untrimmed HSTs and unironed HSTs!  Progress always seems slow at this trimming stage, but I love the precision of the trimmed squares which makes it all worthwhile!


  1. WOW! This is going to be such a lovely quilt.

  2. OH my gosh! The flying geese around a compass rose - super cool!

  3. What a lovely compass in the center of those circular geese. It ous fantastic.
