When I saw Carolyn's choice for her block this month I said, "GREAT!" Flying geese were something that I always wanted to do, but somehow never did! My friend chose a similar block for her stash bee last year and I thought I would try it then, but I always managed to find something else to do.
After choosing the colors, which I think work well and fit Carolyn's parameters, I went to work. Unfortunately, I don't like to have WIPs, so I like to finish the stash bee blocks in one sitting. It took a little longer than I expected, but having the four at a time option made the process quicker.
I think it came out great although I enjoy a more improv approach ( obviously - see my feb block). No room for error in these. Although I cut the small pieces for the mini geese, I didn't use them. Maybe next time!
Carolyn asked to share favorite quilt block. I can't. Generally my favorite quilts come from playing with my fabric and seeing what happens. I enjoy piecing irregularly shaped blocks - those that are inconsistent but will blend when I start playing.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to go out of "my" box!
