Sewing this Week

I thought I'd start out with an eagle quilt since we are coming fast on the USA Independence Day. I made this quilt in 2003 and 2004, so it's an oldie.
More flying geese were on this week's sewing agenda.
 I came across this one yesterday.... 
 Geez, it isn't even the same fabric! LOL  I didn't bat an eye, just continued on my humble way.
 I chained pieced 10 at a time. cut...
 pressed.....
 Added the next square....
 And sewed them in groups of 10. 
They need trimming which I can do while watching TV. 
I realized I made about 30+ more than I needed! That's annoying!
This weeks instagram. 


Have a fantastic weekend! And if you are lucky enough to get Monday off before July 4th have fun and be safe!

  2. Your thirty extra means the start of another quilt down the road.
    I have admired your eagle quilt for a long time. I have an eagle block pattern drawn that I want to stitch. From a Laurene Sinema inspired quilt I saw online.

    Not as annoying as realizing you need 30 more. LOL
    Have a wonderful weekend Lori!

  7. Love that eagle quilt, Lori!
    Great humble bit of piecing. I think it is a nice thing when that happens, though as my stash has grown, it happens less.
    Though it is annoying now, you know one day those extra geese will be a blessing. : )

  10. I couldn't help but laugh when you said you didn't bat an eye. I love it. Your eagle is gorgeous. You got a lot of flying geese done. For some reason they are my nemesis. Thank you for sharing. HAVE A HAPPY 4TH OF JULY. Of course, you are so good you will probably post on Monday. Have a great weekend.

  11. The Eagles quilt is stunning. One of your very best! [yes I say that about all your quilts, I know!) I especially love the twirly balls.

  12. Your pieced flying goose with two different fabrics is perfect! It reminds me of a vintage quilt that I have and that is exactly what they did if they ran out of a particular fabric. I love it. And it will not change the look of whatever quilt it goes into one iota. Even though you're a bit annoyed at the moment, one day you will be glad you have those extra geese all ready to go! :)
