Sorry for the glare in the picture, but this is what I was playing with last night. Since I am pretty new to machine piecing I'm still getting a kick out of learning how to use all these little tools that my quilting friends have been raving about. With this ruler you cut one large square and four little squares and through some kind of mathematical magic when you sew it all together and cut it just so...PERFECT flying geese! And not just one perfect goose, but four, count them, four geese. Hand sewing flying geese is always a crap shoot, even if you cut and sew precisely--probably because of those pesky bias edges on the triangles. This thing is terrific!
Now, of course, I'm thinking of all the things I could do with this...Not tonight, though. I had one of those Bermuda Triangle days where everything I touched seemed to disappear as soon as I looked away. I would have a stack of papers in my hand and head across the classroom to put them in a folder, and by the time I reached the other side of the room, the stack would be gone. Minutes later the stack would reappear, but something else would go missing. I finally called it a day early and just came home.
Tonight I'm going to veg out in front of the TV (Netflix delivery today!).
