My scrappy stars quilt is coming along, I seem to be in the grove, so focused on this quilt its getting me out of bed early so I can have some quiet time to just sew.
I now have a stack of star blocks, but these are only the centers so lots more sewing fun ahead.
My lovely husband made some tailors clappers for me to use, I especially love the way he made a large one so it would cover a whole block. My husband cut and milled the trees from our property, they are very special to me.
Here is my ironing set up, I love love love my new industrial iron too.....
I love how the clappers, and a spritz of water make my seams lay so flat.
A little peak at my design wall, with the beginnings of the Scrappy stars quilt.
I am on a roll now.... and loving the process.
Benny is worn out by it all.

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.
