This beautiful quilt featuring intricate maple leaves and flying geese celebrates our Northern Neighbours. You’ll use Deb’s Corner Beam, Split Rects, and Wing Clipper 1 tools to make this captivating quilt.
The Wing Clipper is a must have tool if you are making Flying Geese units for your quilt. This tool, and the associated Fast Flying Geese construction technique, allow you to make four finished units from five squares. The best part is that each unit is constructed slightly oversized so each can be trimmed to a perfect size with perfect seam placement once the sewing and pressing are complete by using the Wing Clipper tool. You can see the tool in action on our free online video demonstration below. Every single unit will be exactly right every time. Now who ever thought that would happen with Flying Geese units?!?!
This tool creates a fundamental unit that is sure to add sparkle to your quilt block designs. Although the ruler shape is similar to the V Block, the final unit has two seamlines radiating from a single corner, so the center triangle in the finished unit resembles a beam of light shining out of that corner. Accurate construction has always been challenging until now. With the Corner Beam tool, all the shapes are cut slightly over sized and once sewn, trimmed to extremely precise units with seams perfectly placed for a crisp sharp point every time. Brighten up your blocks by adding Corner Beam to your toolbox today!
With all of the geese traveling around this quilt, Atlantic Flyway seemed a most appropriate name. Techniques include “Fast Flying Geese” with the Wing Clipper I ruler, and “Migrating Geese” for the border and a bit of paper foundation piecing for the tricky star points. A wonderful wall quilt.
This duo, wall quilt and table runner, are certain to enhance the look of your fall decor. Both projects include a favorite Leaf Block and Flying Geese strips to create their overall design, and both are perfect scrap projects. Deb's Wing Clipper 1, Corner Beam, and Square Squared tools ensure perfect units for easy quilt construction and so all you need to do is add those beautiful fabrics.
