NOVEMBER WORKSHOP

INSTRUCTOR LINDA SYRING

November workshop instructor is Linda Syring and she is teaching a lap quilt made of flying geese. Linda has promised to show us how to get those perfect points. This is also a fairly easy quilt to make. My instructions will be for a lap size which is 54" x 66" (9 x 11 = 99 geese blocks) Accurate cutting is a must for this quilt. Rulers are required: 6 1/2" square and 6"x 12" 10" square (to accurately cut your 7 1/2" square blocks)Type your paragraph here.


Additional, but not necessary are the Flying Geese rulers. There is one made by Eleanor Burns and Wing Clipper by Deb Tucker. I will have both with me to demonstrate if anyone should have them. The lap size will require 3 1/2 yards of Background either solid or tone on tone. Add 1/2 yard of the same fabric if you plan on doing binding in same fabric. 25 - 7 1/2" squares of various fabrics. Each square makes 4 Geese This may help: Fat Quarter (18" x 22") will produce 4 - 7 1/2" squares which makes 16 Geese Fat Eighth (9" x 22") will produce 2 - 7 1/2" squares which makes 8 Geese OR Cut 25 - 7 1/2" squares of various fabrics
