March Mini paper piecing

Using an assortment of  Island Batik's I paper pieced this 19" x 19" mini for our March challenge.

The pattern is Triple Goosed by Jelli Quilts on Craftsy. I did further her pattern by adding two skinny white borders with Island Batik rectangles in between. It is now adorning my green wall in my sewing room.


Just so you all know how crazy I am, look at the size of those green geese!!  I seriously had my doubts after piecing the first of 4 of these and almost didn't make it.  But all said and done I am glad I did.  I do have to say that using Island Batik's made the paper piecing some of the easiest I have done. It just creases so well and of course there is no wrong side!  When paper piecing I like to take an index card and fold on all the lines on the paper before sewing.  I always use my Add a Quarter ruler for cutting the 1/4" seam allowance.


The geese got a little bigger as I went;)

  1. Fun!! Those rectangles really add to the whole - nice call there. I can't believe how tiny the inner geese are.

  7. I love everything about this....the design, the teeny geese, the quilting and the fabrics. It's too bad I don't love paper piecing, though. :) I'll enjoy looking at your beautiful mini.

  17. Those center triangles aren't geese, they are too tiny...they have to be flying hummingbirds :) I think you've made a beautiful finish for this month's challenge.
