Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Good morning my quilty friends. Friday was Bonnie Hunters 2nd installment of the Easy Street Mystery. I will have to say that flying geese units are not my forte, no matter what method I am never totally thrilled with them. My first panic when I read the instructions was to use an easy angle ruler, and a companion angle ruler. I was positive I did not own those tools, and I do own a lot. Surprise in my bag of rulers, I had 3 easy angles, small, medium, and large, and the companion angle. I think that I purchased them years ago and they are what I used to start my first quilt a gazillion years ago when I lived near Sisters, Oregon, and my go to shop was The Stichin' Post. I think I mentioned that my first foray into quilting was recently discovered in a box and is sitting in my UFO stack with a huge question mark on how do you fix that?
Sorry tangent back to Easy Street.
Bonnie's tutorial on how to use the easy angle and companion angle was great and my geese flew together. Which makes me want to take out that UFO and maybe tear it down and redo! Here is the link to part 2. http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/11/easy-street-part-2.html
My honey has been working lots of overtime so my Saturday was wide open, and I banged out all of my flying geese with ease!
Oh and I just had to share my craigslist find from this weekend. From what I can tell this is the original cabinet designed to go with the 301! The cabinet is in wonderful condition and the machine sews fantastic. I think it is going to sit in my sunroom and I just may work on a new quilt there for the day! thanks to my honey for replacing all the cords so it was electrically sound!
