What is it about our tools… even if we already have a dozen pairs of scissors and snips, it’s easy to be distracted when you see them in a pretty color. Or four pretty colors.

You didn’t really think that I would forget about Flying Geese.
When I first started making quilts, I loved strip-piecing. Nine-patches and four-patches, Irish Chains and Rail Fences – even strips that finished at less than 1″ didn’t seem that difficult. I made a Sun and Shadow quilt, a Trip Around the World and a Lone Star – it was still strip-pieced. But half-triangle squares? Not. On. The. List.
