My friend Kelly has come up with a couple more fantastic patterns
and I got to play with them this weekend.
They are for "skinny" geese in a ring.
I tested the 6 1/2" and the 2 1/2" patterns.
I only had time to do a quarter of the pattern but I am loving them so far.
This is so teeny tiny!
Easier to see them in relation to each other.
This was the only bit of sewing I was able to eek out this weekend!
I did discover an interesting "tip" while paper piecing the larger one.
I always seem to struggle with knowing where to line up the "next" piece to add,
especially if I can't see through when I hold it up to the light.
I finally figured out something that was extremely helpful for me and
thought I would pass this tip along to you.
In this photo you see that A16 is the next piece I need to add so I put a pin on the sewing line.
When you flip it over you can see where the pin line is and extend your piece 1/4" past that.
Then flip back to the front and use the same pin to pin your piece in place right on the sewing line.
When I flipped back to the back I could open up the violet piece and make sure it covers everything like it should, then turn back to the front and sew it!
This saved me soooooo much ripping time!
I didn't need to do this with the small one as the pieces are so much smaller and easier to work with and make sure everything is covered, but for the larger one this was GREAT!
I hope you get a chance to purchase her pattern and make some for yourself!
