New Quilt in the making ~ Moda Hideaway fabric

I’ve a few projects that I’m juggling at the moment…the ‘beast’ (as my friend April calls it) pinwheel quilt, that I ripped out all of the quilting I did on it, is ready for requilting. This time in straight lines! πŸ™‚ The Underground Railroad quilt is down in the basement ready for basting. And my newest project…making lots of geese using Moda’s Hideaway and Kona Solid White.

Am using a Moda Bakeshop ‘recipe’ ~ Geese in the Park ~ that uses two layer cakes, one print and one solid. I had a layer cake in Hideaway and am using yardage of Kona for the solid pieces.

First you pick out 27 pieces from the layer cake and size to 9-1/4″ square (I chose more as I want the quilt a bit longer 72″). Using the solid fabric you cut out 4-7/8″ squares. Arrange the solids on both corners and draw a line diagonally across and pin.

Sew 1/4″ on both sides of the line, then cut on line.

Next you press open. (Sorry about the next picture…very out of focus! Didn’t realize it until I started editing the pictures.) I like to press the seams open, not to one side…but if you are one of those that press to one side, make it press towards the printed fabric. πŸ™‚

Take another 4-7/8″ square and place it in the v-corner of the print fabric, draw a line down the middle and sew 1/4″ on both sides, cut on line.

Ta-Da! You now have four honkers that are approximately 4-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.

  1. Looking good girlie! Great tutorial.

    The Underground Railroad quilt has been such a long-term acquaintance – can’t wait to see it again!! πŸ˜€ I remember bits and pieces of it…

    P.S. REALLY glad I ordered more of that cuckoo clock fabric!

  2. I have yet to try geese but when I do yours will be the method I follow. It looks so much easier than the other ways of doing it. Are you getting a full quarter inch clearance above the point of the triangle? It’s hard to judge from the photo.
