A Gaggle of Geese

Hello Everyone,

The past couple of weeks I have been whittling away at a gaggle of paper pieced geese.  They are for my Glacier Star quilt that I posted about here.


These are all paper pieced from Judy Niemeyer's pattern.  As many of you know, I adore paper piecing and her patterns!   These are fun because they are curved.


They are then joined to these quarter circles.


Like so and...


like so.  I am in love!  These will be inset in the main "lone star" portion of the quilt.  You can see the main portion in this post here.


Look at what they look like in a circle, very cool!

If you like Judy's patterns you can find many of them in my shop by clicking here.

P.S. For 3 days only ALL Westminster Fabrics and Batiks are on sale for $7.95 per yard.  We are going to market this week and need to make room for all the new fabric that we will come back with.  

Click here to begin shopping!

Until Next Time...
