New quilt

We are working on a new quilt, I need 1″ x 2″ finished Flying Geese units in the blocks we are making.  You won’t recognize the fabrics in the picture as they are from the new lines  ‘Leesburg’ and ‘Toasted’.  I have fabric so we can get busy sewing.

‘Leesburg’ should be shipping shortly to your local or favorite quilt shop.  ‘Toasted’ ships later.  The difference is the time between flying in fabric so designers can get sewing done, and the slow boat with yours.

We are using the 1″ x 2″ Bloc Loc ruler to square up the Flying Geese.  Tip – we are using the 28mm or small Olfa rotary cutter, it feels safer to use when trimming these little sweeties.  Safety first.  I love how the Bloc Loc ruler nests into the seams and stays put when trimming. I have the 60 mm rotary cutters at the studio for most of our cutting and trimming.

The blocks are going together nicely since the units are the correct size.

Stay tuned, quilt will be revealed around Market time in Houston.

    • I admit I’m new to using the Bloc Loc rulers, this week gave the Flying Geese 1″ x 2″ a good workout and LOVE it!
      I don’t get to personally sew as much as you think, so it will take time to look back at older projects that have FG in them the same size as the rulers. I know there is a 7/8″ x 1 3/4″ ruler that works for the FG around the Prairie Flower Medallion quilt. I also use a small 28mm Olfa rotary cutter when cutting around the small sizes, and using a cutting mat that rotates made it even easier.
