Flying Geese

Last week I started cutting and sewing the blocks for a
quilt I have wanted to make for some time.
As I was placing the blocks on my design wall,
they took on a new life of their own.
I loved the new direction these blocks were taking
and decided to go with it.



The blocks are sewn together and will have another black border
added to all sides... probably more of these strips that outline
each block.

Does it need another wider border?
I am thinking maybe a yellow one...
with a few geese flying in spots?

(The top is square... I had to stand on my stool to get the photo!)

 


These geese were so much fun to make
and just pop with the yellow and black.

 


I'll let it hang on my wall for a bit and see what it tells me.
Is it finished or not?




I made these two blocks when I was planning on using
the first design.
What to do with these?
Maybe I'll make at least one more of each and make a small
table topper. 
Time will tell.

I'm linking to Patchwork Times today.

Happy Quilting!

I love your pop of colors, too. So bright... and so not winter!
Suggestion: use one as a label on he back, or maybe a pillow to go with it.

Visiting from Design Wall Monday. Love the geese. Very bright and cheerful. The choice of yellow background with black borders really makes the whole thing pop and sparkle.

The "geese" are just beautiful! The yellow and black combo really POP! I'd use the extra blocks on the back....and put the label information on one of them. What size do your geese finish at? (p.s. Did I miss the post for the wedding quilt?)

I love all the Kaffe fabrics in your flying geese. Who knew they would pop like that with the black sashing. No wonder this project took on a life of its own. It's beautiful!

This is beautiful! I recently made my first quilt with Kaffe prints and loved it. A yellow or black border would be perfect!
