If you are a follower of my blog posts (which happen to be far and few between at the moment), you will know that once a year I like to try to revive one of my patterns and make it better than it was. Last year it was "A Freshness of Spring" and this year it is "I Love Teddy".

Bargello in Spring

Being the last day of the month and realizing I have not added one post to my blog for the month prompted me that I should let you all know what I've been up to. Well, I must say, my students already inspire me back to the sewing machine...  so this past week I've been recreating my spring bargello quilt ready to produce as a pattern, the last one to be presented in the series.

Tuesday Tutor - flying geese

Posted by Ruth on 22 February 2011 | 1 Comments

Tags: ,

This week is we are taking a look at the flying geese block. This is another block that can be made a number of ways. You can use the half square triangle method used for our Friendship Star block (by making two squares and joining them together) or you can use the Flip Corner method or you can use foundation piecing method. Since we have already learned the first two methods, let's take a look at foundation piecing. You can use either of the other methods if you choose or try this instead.
