A skill builder for me!

A good blogging friend, Sharon from Vroomans Quilts, sent me this little pattern that she was finished with.. ( and such a cute Butterfly card too!!)

It is a Schnibbles pattern, and all Flying Geese!  Yikes!
I just tried pinwheels a few weeks ago, to send some blocks to another blogging friend. They were actually OK, so I thought I would give this a try!
I made some out of scraps first, just to try them out....

The pattern had pretty good instructions. The only problem I have is that the measurements get as exact as 7/8"....I am pretty good with 1/4", but when it comes down to 1/8" exactness, I think I will be a little bit challenged.

But, I think this might work after all, I will keep working on these!!  This is going to be a long term project I think!

That is my 15 minutes of play for today so I am going to link up to Marcia'a Minutes for Me Party!

  1. Looks like a fun and rewarding 15 minutes!

  2. Your practice geese look wonderful. Yes, I hate those odd measurements too.

  3. As they say, practice makes perfect, and it looks like you will get plenty of practice with that pattern. Cute fabric you are using.

  4. looks like fun can't wait to see the finished quilt!

  5. Practicing something new is always a good idea! =D

  6. Oh my, those look like fun, but the measurements would drive me nuts, lol! Enjoy it!
