Last week I showed you how I quilt my Curved Flying Geese Path. Today I am going to show you how I mark a path for a larger circle of Flying Geese. This one is from the Glacier Star Pattern by Judy Niemeyer. this quilt was pieced by Darlene Conroy.
As usual before I do anything, I have ditched the flying geese with invisible thread.
Basically this trick involves a corsage pin, string and a marking pen (I usually use an air soluable pen).
Tie a loop in one end of the string, put the pin in the center of the loop, and stick the pin in the center of the circle–in this case the center of the quilt (see above). Next tie a loop in the other end othe the string so that the loop ends right where you want the circle to be.
I’m this case I needed two circles, so two strings were used.
Would you like to find out how I stitched out the curved cross-hatching in the center? Stay tuned…
