I have made quite some progress on no. 6 “Double Geese” of my FAL list. The priority for this project is high and I am happy that I liked working on it so I am still sticking with my 2017 quilty goals :)
To recap, the quilt is for my to be born nephew and due early July. My sister picked most of the fabrics and the design – one I really love and am glad to revisit. We tried to fit as many blue „novelty“ fabrics in there as possible. Unfortunately I had not that many so we bought some fabrics. Who would say no to more fabric? I also added some „secret“ fabrics as a surprise. I hope it makes for some fun „I spy“ moments.
I have done this pattern in two ways now: Once paperpieced for this quilt and with this template – and now with the bloc loc ruler. I am using the 3×6 inch finished version. And the paper piecing is something I like and it’s a great solution for group work or if you don’t have a bloc loc (in the correct size)… But I am in love with the bloc loc ruler, mostly for the part of not having to pull the paper out :)
3 blocks in each row, five rows – a total of 15 blocks. Each block consists of 4 units and each unit of 6 pieces. So drumroll please, my top is finished! 360 pieces turned into one. #yeah
Well, and off course I kept the “cut off” triangles. In fact I already finished them into HSTs. When I sewed on the square I always did a second line a half inch away. Then I cut in the middle of those two lines and had a finished geese unit and the left over HST. So what to do with those? I have some ideas… and a next WIP is borne :)
So how have you been holding up sewing wise the last days. I am a lot closer this year to “daily” sewing. I believe I actually never sewed this much and so frequently. Still new WIPs keep popping up – but I guess thats the usual quilters disease.

This is looking soooo good!!
I love those colors! And the points are perfect.
Love how this turned out!! I’m jealous of those points… amazing! That’s one lucky baby! :)
That first picture is so fun with the rows just hanging on a line. I’m sure your sister will love this, and I can’t wait to see it quilted. Hmmm… you better watch out, I decided to turn a couple leftover snippits into HST’s, which turned into a huge quilt. It can happend faster then you know it, but I totally get not throwing away all those precious, tiny little scraps.
Not only your work is beautiful, you also take lovely pictures that show the best colors. I am so sorry I was still looking at your old blog and thinking – she is not posting because she is busy with her travel plans. But today I translated the text on top and went – OH no!!! Well, here I am.
