A clipped wing...

In the new Quilter's World magazine, there's a link to make this wonderfully fast and easy little runner. (I'm looking for fast and easy here to make up for sale at the shop.) However, if you go too fast, like I tend to do, you get a geese with it's wing clipped!

 

I didn't even realize it until I went to cut the corner to sew the strip on. Oh well. I'm quilting and binding this one and using it at work anyway. It'll be my prototype and maybe I can take orders for others. The center piece will work great with those fabrics that you just can't bear to cut up and the flying geese are a breeze to make. I like to use Billie Lauder's technique. I hope to get to the store today to find some really wonderful print that I just HAVE to have.

Jim is off today, so it's a slow morning around here. I've been up since 5:30 though. Can't change that internal clock. So, best get some things done and get ready for work. I'd rather be quilting!!

I had to look at it for the 4th time before I spotted the clipped wing so it will certainly pass the "galloping horse" test. I think it looks great!

I also had to really look for the "clipped wing"! Nice table runner! I have to admit that flying geese are not my favorite things to make. You have done a lovely job.

I had to go one by one to find the "clipped wing" so I wouldn't be too worried about it. Could I get you make me a Thanksgiving and a Christmas one?

By the time you have the binding on that wing might not be clipped at all.
