This months mini is going much smaller with blocks (3 geese) at 1" x 1.5" finished.
I am in love with flying geese lately and thought it appropriate with the fact that some birds will fly south soon. Oh no, not what we want to hear!
This finished quilt measures only about 7" wide x 8.25" complete with sashing, borders and binding. It had to be paper pieced to be accurate. Fun to do but a serious challenge, especially to get the sashing, borders and binding as even as possible.
See the size of the block below, tiny in my hand.
Helpful tools for this project?
The 6" add a quarter ruler
Bobbin fill fine thread for embroidery, I found it useful for tiny piecing as it creates less bulk.
I think I got mini flying geese out of my system, at least for now LOL
Challenge yourself to a mini quilt this month!
Happy Wednesday and Happy September❤️

Making a quilt is very challenging because you are dealing with an art with a relatively small size. When I was a student, this thing was not taught to me under Home Economics class. How I wish it was introduced to me so that I would know how to make it. But I appreciate the fact that you are trying to let us know the difficult process we need to do in order for us to make a quilt. It may looks so simple, but there's so much art in it!
