On Ringo Lake – Clue 2

Posted Monday, December 4th, 2017 in Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt | Tags: ,

This weekend has been busy for us. Sami’s 4th birthday party was held on Saturday. She had a wonderful time playing with her friends. We stayed after the party to watch the OSU game with Jen.

I started working on my second mystery quilt clue on Saturday morning before we went to the party. We are making flying geese and I wanted to try two different methods to see which was easier and more accurate. I usually use the Fast Flying Geese method but that includes a lot of drawn lines, sewing, pressing, cutting and more of the same to complete 4 flying geese. I did two sets this way and found that I had to trim all of them to get the correct size.

Next, I tried Bonnie Hunter’s new method using her Essential Triangle Tool. I cut out a couple and sewed them. They are very accurate and I did not need to trim them to size. This is the method I decided to use for the rest of Clue 2.

Please excuse my poor photography.

Today I worked on this clue until my daughter came over. We are each making a mug rug to take to quilt guild this week for a swap. We are almost finished with them and I will share pictures after they are completed.
