I've been sewing HSTs for my Flying Geese units for the last week;
Of course I had to juggle the units to get the Flying Geese border to fit. In one direction the length of the small pink border was 72", so I needed 24 Flying Geese. In the other direction, the border measured 52.5", which was 17.5 units. I wanted the corners to be the same, so I needed to have 18, or 17, not a half unit. I know I could have altered the pink border to make the overall measurement correct, but I didn't want to do that either. So I made the seams on the Flying Geese smaller, and the overall length of the pieced strip grew the extra 1.5" I needed. There were over 30 seams in that one border, so I didn't need to make a drastic change in the seam width, just a tad narrower did the trick.
There will be a narrow indigo border next, and then the coverlet print. I'll have to work out a whole lot of problems on that as I go along.
There's a border print along the edge of the fabric, so I'm going to try and use that along the outer edge.
I'd like to use the light motif as a corner; it has good symmetry and I'll be able to make it meet in a pleasing way.
My vintage rosettes are now in rows, and I need to make two extra rosettes to finish the last row. Then I can cut out a lot of blue diamonds and triangles, and package each row into a ziplock bag with the right number of joining pieces. I'll work on them as I get time; I'll be able to take them with me to family dinners and get-togethers, and if I just keep at it then it will get done, one inch-long seam at a time.
