I decided to make flying geese for the next modern medallion border. I am totally winging it and not doing any math and am somehow making it work! My favorite way to make flying geese is with the Quilt in a Day rulers. They come out perfect and not at all wonky. I don't even mind the little bit of wasted fabric.
I started out thinking I wanted all yellow geese, then decided to add the other center star aqua color too.
I realized after this photo (below) that I had put the bottom row on backwards...but this picture is after I added in a few more colors, some dark brown and redish/pink and more yellow. It isn't sewn yet and I spent several hours thinking about it while working on some purple "My Blue Heaven" blocks.
Here I flipped around the bottom border.
Then I packed up my stuff for mystery quilt camp (which starts this Thursday already!). I gave in and ordered myself a travel iron that is better than the tiny one I have--took Maria's advice and ordered one just like hers! After that, while watching the fourth movie of the day (Free Bird, Elysium, Gaby Douglas and Diana movies) I sewed the geese border row together and it went together well! It is now 31.5 inches square, so I am ahead of what I am supposed to be--not so good at following loose directions, but I love it so I am content to wait til the group gets to that size!
