Except I think hand-piecing this flying geese block was more like working with sharks!
Lol! This was my fabric choice for this week's block. I've never seen sharks in the wild, but I've definitely enjoyed learning about them over the years. They are ancient creatures!
Isn't this a neat selvage?!
I found the flying geese blocks easy to sew together initially, and was happy with how they turned out.
Things definitely got more challenging as I constructed the block - and it all had to do with the bulk in the seams that were going together and how you actually sew through them. I have more to learn about that part of hand-piecing!
Here is my block after a few rounds of unstitching and restitching, but before pressing.
I was at the "Good enough" stage!
And here are all three of my hand-pieced blocks so far.
I'm continuing to enjoy the learning in this QAL, and I'm sure more opportunities are coming as we make new blocks! Thank you, Patty and Kristin, for the great tips, tutorials, and videos that are so helpful!
