    Default Jenny's Courtship quilt and flying geese

    Hello everyone,
    I am currently looking to start my next favorite quilt, and I am considering Jenny's Courtship quilt, but I have such problems with flying geese and losing the points!
    These geese are made from HST. For those who may have made them this way, does it seem an easier way because it seems to me that I would have even more problems keeping the points!
    Any advice is appreciated!
    Thank you....my first post here not counting the intro

    Whichever way you choose to do your FG, just make sure your needle hits just one or two thread's width to the right of the point where the seams intersect. That way you do not lose your points. Good luck!

    As I looked at the tutorial it appears to me that indeed using the HST I would lose the points on the flying geese? I will have to make a sample to see as I absolutely want to make this in the fabrics she demonstrated in the tutorial.

    I made a Dutchman's Puzzle quilt using the HST triangle method. I found it easier to keep my points doing it this way.

    Thank you Cindy for posting this so you're saying that you used the easy eight and didn't lose your points on the flying geese in the 1/4" seam?

    I make my flying geese 4 at a time with Deb Tucker Wing Clipper tool. Very fast and accurate. Just finished a quilt with 320 geese using this tool.

    I too am a fan of the Deb Tucker Wing Clipper. It does take a little longer but not if you factor in having to redo some of them.

    I love this quilt and I especially love the fabrics. I am a huge fan of the Tim Holtz fabrics and also the lines from Sweetwater. Now, if only I would just take more time for myself and get things done!

    Do you lose the points when you assemble it? I was taught to match the points/seams by sticking a pin straight up where the point ends and where you want them to join and put a pin close on each side to keep them in place.

    I looked at her tutorial quickly and am glad she used the easy 8 method rather than ending up with bias edges on the Round the World method. That works better for me. I haven't used the wing clipper, but have heard good things about it.
