making progress

i've been busy this weekend making flying geese. about half way through assembling and trimming these blocks to their proper size, it dawned on me that it would be more efficient to pick up the special flying geese ruler to make my life easier.

and it did.

that is, up until i went to set the stitches and press the seam on this strip...

how did i miss that? and this was after i had sewn about 75% of the units for my finished quilt. it was a sure sign that i needed to stop and go do something else.

last night i finished sewing all the units into strips and the strips into one piece, so the quilt top is done. tonight i will assemble the back, make the quilt sandwich and baste my layers together.

my deadline is looming.
