I am once again participating in the mystery quilt from Meadow Mist Designs, this time based on those wonderful cookies called Macarons!!!
For the months of October and November, we made flying geese….and more flying geese…..and even more flying geese!! She has promised us that this is the last of them.
But, it did give me an opportunity to perfect my flying geese technique. But, alas, that was not the case and I am still having troubles.
We are making them by the 4-at-a-time method and I love how they look when they are in process…..
But when I start trimming them down, the point side always seems to be a bit short!! I even marked the first set so I would remember when I used these units in another step……
I figured that I had not been careful enough in my piecing or ironing so set out the next month to do better.
In November, I VERY carefully pieced and ironed, but they still ended up a bit short on one side (normally the left one)…..
‘I am using the Wing-Clipper tool to trim.
Do you have any thoughts about what I am doing wrong???
ALL help will be appreciated!!
