Flying Spokes!

 Well, flying geese spokes anyway!  Week 12 of the Aves BOW.  I didn't follow the careful instructions of Kathryn Kerr this week, but once I'd got the pie shapes and the flying geese spokes and the centre star I decided to ignore all the 'Y' seam possibilities and applique the central star to the rest of the roundel.  I confess that it isn't perfect, but it's good enough for me to smile and move on to the next part, which is to make a flying geese border for it.  Happy days!
 I also started a lozenge quilt - back to my scrap bag using-it-up theme.

I got out all my left over rectangles (8" x 4")and left over squares (1 3/4"square)....
 Set them up as 'covered corners'.....
 Trimmed them....
Folded the corners back and ironed them.

This has left me with a pile of lozenges - but no real design layout in mind for them!

Of course, I realise now that if I'd planned it out first that it might have been a better idea and that I might get a better result!  Lesson learned.

When I get some more sewing time I will play with layouts until I get something that works for me.  Always fun to play!
