Christmas presents

I purchased the shortcut sheets for fast ways 
to do things like 
flying geese and hunter star block 
 
They were purchased at www.kitsbycarla.com
 
Finally got a chance to try them....
 
I need some flying geese for my 'presents'

 I started with the strips it calls for sewing them together ...

It suggests you press seams open 

 These are cut into strips and resewn staggered 

 
Then you cut them apart in strips
 

And the strips into individual geese

It made quite a stack of geese!

Which are now my bows on these presents  

 

 

I used up all the little Sweetwater scraps off my cutting table 
 

Even quilted up this table mat and gifted it on the weekend!!   

I need to try this method again before I can fully give a review! 

 

It was a totally different way of do flying geese 

and 

they were very straight since they were all sewn in strips.

Always some thing new out there!
