On Ringo Lake – Week 2 With Brenda!

December 05, 2017

A gaggle of geese! Wow, Bonnie has us working hard to create our own flocks of flying geese. After Bernina Joy reminded me that the Accuquilt Qube dies #4 and #5 can be put together into flying geese units, I decided to use that method rather than the alternate methods on the Quiltville Blog post. It can be a challenge to find time to sew this time of year and I knew that the Accuquilt cutter would really streamline the cutting process. After rough cutting the strips 1/2” wider that the die, the fabric is fan folded until you have up to 6 layers of fabric.

After running it through the cutter, you have up to 24 half square triangles in a matter of moments. The accuracy and speed is such a fabulous way to make the most of your time quilting.  I also love that the die cuts the dog ears off the units. Just another way that using my Accuquilt cutter makes the process faster and more accurate than rotary cutting.

With a project like this, I prefer to alternate between the various parts of the process.  I do a little cutting, a little sewing and a little pressing. I enjoy the changes and I think it helps add a little variety when you are piecing so many units. Eventually I get a gaggle of geese to add to the final count.

Happy piecing to you until the next clue!
