Still piecing….

I got started piecing sub units for my Goose in the Pond blocks.

This gives you an idea of how they will look finished.

I am not sure I have enough of the background fabric to make all the 9 patches that I will need. Luckily, I found a one yard piece on eBay! I hope it gets here on time for me to finish these before the next guild meeting. I have plenty of HSTs to piece in the mean time. So much for making these all from my stash!

Kathy asked if I cut my pieces using my die cutter. I did. I used three dies: the 3″ finished HST, the 3″ finished square, and my 1″ finished (1 1/2″ cut) strip die for the 9 patches and rail fence blocks. After piecing my strips for the 9 patches, I sub cut by laying my pieced strips with seams perpendicular to the blades and run them through the die cutter again. It is so fast and very accurate this way.

    Your block is beautiful. It is going to make a great quilt. Do you have an Accuquilt go or Sizzix cutter. Hugs, Cathy

    Thanks for the answer to my question. I expected that was the case. 😉

    I noticed on your album blocks – the fabric seems so nice and crisp. Do you prewash? If so, how do you get the fabric so nice and crisp like that?
