TWISTED GEESE 

turned out to be one of the bestselling patterns created for Fragile.


It takes the classic Flying Geese block, plays with directions and random amounts of geese and adds texture with some low volumes. These are btw from my line Modern Backgrounds Paper.


I like to use precuts in my patterns, and for this one I thought of using a Layer Cake for the Fragile prints. To make the most efficient use of fabric for such large Flying Geese blocks, I used the


NO WASTE FLYING GEESE TECHNIQUE


I will show you this technique in a quick overview. It’s totally easy to do and you will not have any wasted left over triangles as in other techniques.


You start with 5 patches and will end up with 4 Flying Geese units. One square from the FRAGILE Layer Cake is the base for the geese, four smaller squares from PAPER make for the sky.

Align the smaller PAPER squares in opposite corners of the FRAGILE square, mark the diagonal and sew ¼” away from each side of the drawn line.


Cut on the drawn line and press the sections open. You get a kind of L-shape. 

Place another PAPER patch in the background corner of one L-shape, draw a marking line and sew like described above.


Cut on the drawn line, press open to get two Flying Geese units. Do the same with the remaining L-shape and you will have four Flying Geese units in total.



All you have to do now is to trim it to the desired size and they turn out perfectly shaped.*

This quilt was such a fun to make and with all the textures it looks very cozy.

And I have more fun patterns for you:

PLUS IT’S SIMPLE

Uses all the saffrons in the group and adds some interest with chalk and graphite. The pluses are of an irresistible modern style and they are easy to sew.


WHITE AND LIGHT

Is an easy to sew quilt, so perfect for any beginner too. It also makes use of precuts, I started with 5 Minicharm Packs, so this saved me a lot of cutting time. For the background you can go with a clean white or as I did, with a bit of texture. I used again the PAPER line. The lap quilt is fresh like a summer breeze.


CONTRASTING

Is a more dramatic wall hanger. It tells the story of duality, black and white, night and day. The randomly thrown triangles in the middle part could be a horizon or silhouette of a town by night. I used one single Charm Pack, added solid accents in orange and turquoise and for the background I used the print “Almost Plus” from FRAGILE

Hallo,

ich wollte im Onlineshop auf brigitteheitland.de ein Quiltmuster kaufen. Im Warenkorb wird aber immer ein Preis in USD angezeigt. Soll das so sein, selbst bei Einkäufen aus Deutschland, oder kann man das irgendwo ändern?

Viele Grüße und danke für die Hilfe!

Sarah

Hallo liebe Sarah,

Das sollte kein Problem sein. Die Bezahlung erfolgt via PayPal. Und bei Paypal kannst du dann in EUR bezahlen, das System rechnet das automatisch um.
Man kann die täglichen Kursschwankungen leider nicht täglich in einen EUR-Preis auf der Website umrechnen und aktualisieren.

Liebe Grüße
Brigitte
