Day 2…Needful things for Quilters

12 Days of Christmas 2

Day 2…one more…believe it or not…after I write this post I have to finish my shopping!

Today’s Needful thing is a Quick Quarter for making flying geese…I have made this chart with finished sizes along with the cutting chart…Then attached with each chart is the quick quarter for marking the double stitching lines….In the photo I am showing both sides of the chart…and you can see the no waste method I use for making flying geese!!!…I have made these and have them priced at only $5…they will be on sale for $4…We only have 69 of them left  and they will be gone…so order one if you want to make sure you get one!  If you want to order here is the link:  Flying Geese

    What a great tool & yardage chart! Now the birds can all fly in formation! Will have to try this as mine typically veer west or east or have lost their nice pointy “beaks.” Shopping , wow, good luck!!
