Due South Update

Well my geese went together easily and speedily, I did not have to make them twice.  I used the Fit to be Geese ruler by Monique Dillard for Open Gate Quilts for my geese.  They are made bigger then trimmed to size, perfect every time.


When I put all the geese on my design wall the pink geese really stood out to me.  I like pink but wasn't in the mood for that much pink, so I replaced a few.


There's still pink, just not as much.

I'm liking how this is shaping up!  

Vicky, the LA Quilter has started her Due South but has yet to update her blog.  Hopefully she'll do that soon, hint, hint.  She's going with French General, a great choice, I think it will make a beautiful Due South.

  1. I love this and I really love flying geese. Are you going to set half square triangles around the edges or square it up???? Inquiring minds love to be nosey. LOL!!!

  2. You win! Your colors are fab! I'm hoping to get mine up on the design wall this weekend. Since I accidentally made 247 instead of 212 (higher math!) I should have enough to make color choices. But I need a lesson in oversizing when cutting. I tried on these and got all discombobulated. Probably the meds .... thanks for "urging" me to join your sew-along!

  4. I'm part of an exchange group and this is the quilt we'll be making over the next 5 months. We're using Deb Tucker's Wing Clipper ruler for the flying geese to be sure everybody's come out perfect.
