I am in the thick of cutting & piecing my wild geese quilt, which means there is a lot of measuring. Measuring = numbers = math = Jess math.

Using this wonderful flying geese tutorial, I spent yesterday cutting all necessary fabrics to piece together today. (I also created a beautiful checked scarf for Tilly Willicus.)

Re-visiting the tutorial website this morning, I understood that some serious Jess math had occurred. I thought the second quick-piecing technique resulted in two geese. Nope. It results in four geese. This means that I have cut enough fabric to create two queen-size quilts!

(Oh! And did I mention that the band I’m in  — Being — recorded a mini-album at Sonelab Studios in Easthampton, MA this week?! 9 songs recorded in 3 days! Now that’s some dizzying math!)
