One of my previous Leader Ender projects has been languishing for a while. You may remember the little nine patches I put together ages ago.
Well they were destined to be the centre of saw-tooth stars. I just needed to make all the star points. It required chain piecing a pile of geese, using the four at a time method.
That kind of sewing is the most efficient way to do it, but it’s definitely not the most stimulating.
That is a pile of 120 geese. They are all cut apart, I just have to iron the last point open, and trim them all up using my handy dandy Wing Clipper ruler. But I ran out of steam, so it will have to wait for another day (or several days – I may break it up into a couple mini-sessions to keep me from going crazy).
I did do four of them really quick, just so I could throw one block together.
Lemmy and Burton think this one is just stellar!!

That last pic put a smile on my face this morning! How loving of Uncle Burton to share his photoshoot with baby Lemmy.
Your quilts always look amazing,!
A new helper!! Lemmy is in Burton Training School. That star is very pretty Val.
Very pretty star.
Lemmy has perfected “THE LOOK”! LOL
OMG, those two are making my head hurt from the overwhelming CUTE!
I love the star; am a star child (meaning I like stars everywhere!)
And they are so right! very pretty!
Such a pretty, pretty block. But the stars of the post are Burton and Lemmy. How sweet of Burton to show Lemmy the “ropes” of posing and supervising. Their cuteness is overwhelming.
Blessings and lots of hugs,
Sweet photo of your helpers! Love the star, too.
The end result makes slogging thru those geese blocks worth it! The black points and white background could not be more perfect. I think Lemmy has grown a little or maybe it’s just the angle of the shot.
I agree! That’s a spectacular block.
120 geese, impressive! Love seeing those cats of yours.
Nice blocks and friends:)
