Stash Report - Week 24

No new fabric added this week - Yeah!    BooHoo - nothing out either!    I worked on two projects this week but didn't finish one of them, and I didn't like the piecing I did on the Flying Geese sections of the Chloe Quilt,  so I did the Rip-It , Rip-It  on some of the Flying Geese  sections.   I prefer not to piece seams on the bias, so it looks like it might take me longer to get all of the Flying Geese pieces completed.   One thing that helped was the ability to lower the pressure on the pressure foot on my machines just a little.  Using the Walking Foot also helped.  I'm going to be using my 830 with Dual Feed and a lower pressure on the pressure foot as I think that worked the best.

Flying geese are a little tricky. I really struggle with those. I've been piecing today with my walking foot. I hadn't tried that for awhile and thought I would try again. I'm only stitching simple pieces but I sure like that I don't have to pin much when I using the walking foot. Really speeds up the process although I'm not quite sure what my hurry is.

I have have trouble with flying geese too! I have been trying to make a quilt for my father since Christmas, but it keeps getting moved back to the WIP pile because of the flying geese! I'll have to try using my walking foot, thanks for the tip!
