Migrating Geese

My "test" border of migrating geese is done. This is not the best picture of this project, but you can get the idea. I'll take a better picture when the top is finished.

The migrating geese are along the left hand side. I really like this! I've started on the other three sides. I decided to frame these geese strips with background fabric to make the border the width I need it to be.

I like this pattern so much that I've decide to make another version to use as a class sample for the next quarter of classes at my LQS. It will be my "main project" for my guild retreat at the end of October. I will be using charm squares instead of nine patches though for the second one. I don't think I have another 800 nine patches in me just yet!

The migrating geese is a "precision" technique so you really have to pay attention. Accurate cutting and sewing are a must, but the results are worth the extra time. The link will take you to Deb Tucker's website where you can order your own technique sheet for this.

You really would have to pay luck my attention would be out the window and my geese would be resting on a pond.

I love the migrating geese border. I have always wanted to do this, but after reading your comment, maybe I'll think of something else. You know me and my piecing problems.

I would be tempted to paper piece that border. :-)
