Country Fair is a scrap version of a traditional Carpenter’s Wheel block. This project is constructed with Flying Geese units, Diamond Square units and Four Patch units instead of the usual diamond shapes. Using Deb’s Wing Clipper I and Square Squared tools will give you perfectly shaped and sized units every time. This means you’ll have crisp seams and great points and a border that actually fits the center part of the quilt! A super scrap project that looks so much harder to make than it actually is to construct.
An in between tool that trims down Flying Geese units in 9 additional size not covered with the Wing Clipper 1. Many of today’s best designers like to create quilts and patterns with Flying Geese units that are based on finished heights of ¼” and ¾” increments. They are sometimes just the right size for a particular design and having a tool that gives you the opportunity to make them quickly, and then clean them up with high precision, is a welcome addition to many quilter’s tool box. By supplementing the Wing Clipper 1 with this tool, you will have 19 different size options for traditional Flying Geese units. Absolutely the best set of tools on the market!
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?!?!
Amusement is a fun and quirky quilt inspired by the Ferris Wheels found on the Amusement Piers in NJ, where Michelle grew up. Ferris Wheels are enjoyed by so many of us, just like this quilt will be for the quilter making it and the recipient receiving it.
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 1 ruler, and “Migrating Geese” for the border and a bit of paper foundation piecing for the tricky star points. A wonderful wall quilt.
