River Pond QAL: Assemble Flying Geese

This post is part of the River Pond Quilt Along. You can find more info and the schedule HERE.You can purchase the River Pond pattern HERE.

Well, my slight change in the schedule last week was a good move. I ended up coming home from QuiltCon (which was an AWESOME weekend!!) with what turned into a terrible cold… luckily I’m on the healing end of it, so hopefully I’ll be back up to full speed again soon.

So getting back on track, let’s keep quilting!

Assembling the Flying Geese

This is the step where I stalled out… because it meant trimming all of those flying geese. ug. Which, I don’t know why I dislike that step, because after trimming all 25 of them, I didn’t mind it so much. Go figure. πŸ˜‰ I guess sometimes you just have to do the “least fun parts” to learn that they’re not so bad after all.

Last week we made our flying geese, based on my coloring page and planning, I made a number of geese in 3 different colors.

This week we are assembling them in two different groups.

One set with 3 geese

One set with 2 geese

Make 5 of each set.

Homework

This weeks homework:

Catch up if you need to.

Trim and assemble your geese.

On Monday we’ll assemble the side strips and on Wednesday we’ll assemble the center section.

When I set up the schedule, I wasn’t sure exactly how to time everything. I am tweaking the schedule just a little bit, because I want to leave a little more time for quilting, as that can sometimes be the most time consuming. You can adjust to your needs as you see fit, but the end date will not be changing.
