    I'm not usually fond of a lot of white background, but I really like this one!

    I really like it... I happen to have a Jelly Roll in those colors too! I also think if using yardage, I'd make the leg blocks.

I usually end up with a far more straight piece when I do flying geese rather than 2HST and then joining them. Each time you sew and press seems to chance it to be a bit wonky. I also would be cutting fewer times. I do have several ways to make gees so....

    Anyone have a thought?
    I agree, I too would use flying geese rather than 1/2 square triangles. Especially since both pieces were cut from yardage.

    When I sew strips together that are going to be sub-cut I shorten the stitch length to 2.0. I also sew a narrow seam around the perimeter of the quilt top when there is a pieced border to prevent the seams from pulling out when the quilt is stretched in the LAQ machine.

    I'll have to watch it later, but I saw the beginning of it and really like the pattern.

    I think this would make a nice Christmas quilt. I have an older SnowFolk jelly roll and charm pack I can use.
