Midweek Makers #194

Welcome to the Midweek Makers linky party! My share this week are these freezer paper pieced chicken tracks, 

flying geese units made into chicken tracks by QuiltFabrication

which are my creative version of the required flying geese units for this round of my personal Round Robin quilt. Here they are in mass production.

Hopefully, these eleven are enough to finish the row of eight already done. Then it's on to adding in the filler pieces and stitching the row to the top. And that will be another project off my to-do list for the week. Now on to the party!

Having spent part of my youth in New England, I have fond memories of glorious fall colors. That's part of the reason for making Fall Leaves - so I can add those colors to my seasonal decor. I just love red, orange, and yellow right now! And I was very happy to see lots of orange projects from last week's party:

this organic hexie project from Pink Doxies,

                                                 

a beautiful drunkard's path baby quilt from Twiggy and Opal,

                                                     

a great scrap quilt made by Mouse in My Pocket,

                                         

another beaded beauty from Princess Bubbles Creates,

                                                    

and these fantastic pillows from Storied Quilts.

                                         

Love all the orange! Do you have something orange to share this week? It's okay if you don't - come share what's making your heart sing!

  1. Those are cute! I've used freezer paper a few times and love that there are no papers to tear out! It works great with uncomplicated blocks perfectly!

  5. Hi Susan, I just wanted to report "in" on my experience with using freezer paper for paper piecing. When doing a repeat block quilt (all the blocks are the same in the quilt), I do love how much it saves on paper, as I can reuse the same pattern up to about 5 times. But, I also note that my blocks are not as accurate, as I am sewing NEXT to the line, not exactly on it. In alot of images, it is OK to be a bit inaccurate, so no biggey.
    I also had to concentrate more on which side of my piece I was ironing, as it is not good to iron onto the waxy side :)
    Just some thoughts on it. Always fun to try a new product :)

  6. Oh my gosh, Susan -- those chicken tracks are ADORABLE! How tiny are they? Thanks for featuring Julie's hexie project over at Pink Doxies. Somehow I missed that one and I love her work -- off to check it out right this minute! I love how you share what others are working on and share the love :-)
