TFQ already talked about our Flying Geese exchange on her blog. Still, I am going to talk about it here. Over the course of the year, probably ad nauseum. Still, it is my blog.
I like doing projects with TFQ. The last one we did together was the Star Sampler. She is waiting to finish hers, but mine is done.
As you might remember, we started off, after PIQF, exchanging the PIQF Cross blocks. TFQ admitted to sincerely disliking those blocks before I did, but I really did not like them very much. When we finally got on the same page, TFQ suggested Flying Geese patches and I thought that was a good idea.
We decided to use the same color selections: light, bright grey, which was good. I already had a selection out to use. I have since picked out a few others.
First off: I started off making the Flying Geese wrong. That is why you see some of the geese have been made into chevrons. I just have them on my design wall arranged like that for kicks. I can’t see making more of the Flying Geese the wrong way. I don’t suppose you ever really know.
That meant that I had to start over, recutting, readjusting my brain and sewing more to catch up.
Next, I got reacquainted with the Deb Tucker Flying Geese ruler. I have also used other rulers such as the Creative Grids Flying Geese ruler. This time I am using the Deb Tucker Flying Geese ruler. Once I figured out what size to cut each square, then I churned out several geese. The Deb Tucker Flying Geese ruler makes 4 at a time, which is one reason I like it.
Aside from actually mailing off the patches, which I keep forgetting, I am doing pretty well making them. This is a much better project. I am already thinking about what I will do the mounds of Flying Geese I am going to have. I do have ideas, especially for these, which are gorgeous!

Yes, it is your blog and you can post what you want. I like that. While I love having readers come to mine, I started the blog for me and continue it for me. 🙂
Yes, I told myself I would do it a resource me and when it wasn’t anymore then I would stop. So far, it is a great resource for me to remember what I was thinking, etc and I will continue. Thanks for reading!
I often wonder when you talk about these exchanges…are they just between a few friends or is it something bigger? You always make it all sound so fun! 🙂
I don’t, generally, do larger exchanges or swaps. Been there done that and have been burned too many times. When I do exchanges, they are one-on-one.
rotate the chevrons 90 degrees and you have zig zags
I’ll try that! Thanks.
Ha! You may be forgetting to mail them, but I’ve made two sets and managed to LOSE them! Sigh. My house is not that big, but apparently there are infinite places in which these units can get lost.
Replacements have been made and are on their way as I write!
We are certainly a pair! We need to start doing crosswords or harder quilts or something. I have a set in the mail to you.
At least the FGs don’t go bad and smell up your house!
