I finished another Eagle's Nest block yesterday. I have several more cut out and ready to be sewn together. This is a 6" block. Just in case you were wondering, the flying geese finish at 3/4" x 1 1/2". They are tiny but mighty when they are grouped together. I use a Bloc Loc ruler for trimming. In my opinion, it's the only way to go.
If you click at the Virtual Classroom page at the top of my blog, you can find my tutorial for Flying Geese four-at-a-time.
Today I'm packing up the quilts and preparing for my lecture and workshop at the Ridge Quilters Guild in Paradise, CA......my hometown where I spent the first 20 years of my life.
Paradise is located in the foothills about 100 miles north of Sacramento. It had a population of around 4,400 when we moved there in the early 1950's from the San Francisco Bay Area. You knew just about everyone in town and we couldn't get away with anything!
This is back in the day when you got S&H Green Stamps after you filled up your tank of gas back when gas was .25 cents per gallon. Gail and I got to lick the stamps and put them in the book. I can still taste them to this day.
Excuse me while I go find my trusty sawhorse and ride off into the sunset to save the world.
