Its an applique day today, making an early start while the rest of the house sleeps.
My faithful Kitty Kat is here to help.I have spent snippets of time in between spending time with family, making all these circles and flowers for the borders of my quilt. 160 circles on the border alone, but well worth it as they really look great. The borders are basted and all ready to be stitched down. I am stitching my applique invisibly by machine, although it is faster it is a little tedious at times. A good audio book keeps me going, I have been listening to 'The Summer Girls' by Mary Alice Munroe.

How to press a Flying Geese Border ? This is the question I was asked so I have done my best to answer as it is not exactly what you might be expecting to see. Read more to see how I pressed the seams to get nice flat intersections.
Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
