These are the fabric bits for my first challenge block that I’m adding to my Inklingo Sampler Quilt.
I chose to make an Aunt Sukey’s Choice block because it had flying geese units and I wanted to try them with Inklingo. I used the instructions that Linda provides in her Triangle Tips PDF to make 8 flying geese units. Yeah, I know I sound like a walking ad [or broken record] for Inklingo but I really do love using it.
This is the block laid out for sewing after the flying geese units are made.
Next I made the 4 patches and sewed the flying geese units together. [Man, are my photos blurry.]
The finished block. [It looks a little wonky. I need to do a better job with my photos or my pressing.]
I did make myself a little crazy unsewing a seam or two several times trying to be sure my seams lined up. I seriously won’t be doing that any more if I want to get a good number of challenge blocks completed for my quilt. I realized I’ve been spoiled by the precise seams I can get when I’m hand piecing. I’ve never been able to sew by machine and get precise seams which I’m attributing to the way I pin because I’m a leftie. [Any excuse will do, right?]
