Good grief...the August do. Good blocks are quickly becoming my least favorite quilting project ever. We were given a flying geese tutorial and at first I was excited because I've never made a flying geese project.
Then the reality of this particular block set in.
64 scrappy 2" x 3.5" blocks to cut. 132 2" white blocks to cut. Diagonal lines to draw on all 132 white blocks. Sew a white square to a scrappy rectangle, trim to 1/4" seam, press, repeat 131 more times. Sew those into pairs of 2, 2 pairs to 4, 4 to 8, 8 to 16. Two blocks = the finished product. So.many.steps.
Add to that a super busy month and, no, my blocks aren't done. All my geese are done and a little over half the pairs. At least things will go a lot faster now. Still not a fan though. If I make flying geese again they'll definitely be on a MUCH larger scale.
Can't wait to move this project to the finished pile! I have lots of other things I want to work on and this one is monopolizing all my sewing time!
