On Ringo Lake Mystery, Part 2




No automatic alt text available.

As you can see, Part 2 of On Ringo Lake Mystery is flying geese! Lots of them! Bonnie Hunter gave us a few different methods of making these blocks. I chose the old fashioned sew and flip. It seemed to work best for me. The other methods consisted of using rulers and cutting strips into triangles. I tried one that way and it took me forever. I stuck to what I know!

I haven't finished them but I do have all my pieces cut. I'm so proud of myself. Instead of using the neutral fabrics I had chosen for this project, I went through my scrap bag and used all the neutrals I could find. I also found a few pinks. I'm determined to use up some of those scraps! Almost all of the neutrals came from my scrap bag. Love it!!

I did chain piece since I wanted to speed up some of the process. Don't the geese look pretty??

Here's what I've made so far. I'm still not done with the second clue, but I'm getting there. Hoping to be done by the end of the week.  I'm linking up over at Bonnie's Mystery Link Up for Part 2. You can get there by clicking here.  Enjoy checking out everyone's work. It's so fun to see everyone's progress.

    1. Thank you, Julierose! I feel the sew and flip method was the quickest for me. I'm actually getting better at piecing them. I suppose that's true when you're making a lot of anything!
