I’m working on my first quilt in 30 years. It’s a traditional quilt pattern that incorporates “flying geese” which are formed by joining 2 small and one large triangle together (as best as I can tell). Now that i am on block 34 of 42, I am getting the hang of it. The key is to get the points and seams to line up. In about 25 of the blocks, they don’t exactly.
Now I am wondering how this will ever form square sides. I guess it will entail some creative seaming. When i’m not sewing I am reading about how to make a quilt. I’m trying to decide if I will hand sew the 3 layers that make up a quilt, which takes forever; machine quilt it on my old machine that I am not sure is capable of doing it for technical reasons about feet, feeds, etc; or send it to a professional to quilt it at an exorbinant fee. When I am not actually working on the quilt or reading instructions, I am on ebay or somewhere else looking for parts for my 1940’s National sewing machine.
Notice the even point
Not so much
