I played a little after trimming them all up:
I was rather amazed at the designs one can make just with a flying geese unit!
|All I did was add 4 more units to the corners of the star block|
|There is a name for the block that is formed in the centre here...I think...|
|If you rotate those units from the previous photo, this is what you get!|
In the end, yesterday I decided to lay them out all nicely for a proper shot. I got half of them all laid out, and then Bella got involved and mussed a bunch up. I shooed her away, fixed them back up, decided that half of them laid out, all pretty, was good enough, and got a quick photo.
I'm looking forward to the next step!
Sunday night I tested a block for the Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop we are in for my dear friend, Julie, at Pink Doxies. It is a great one!
Head on over to her blog to get the instructions (no special rulers required, yeah!). I even did it without a compass...think I may have got rid of my ancient um, 40-year-old math set. Love this block. Then again I do love the sun! My version is with my own stash fabrics, and of course, for a little more shine, Sulky Holoshimmer for the top-stitching. ;-)
Cheryl's post today at Meadow Mist Designs for about 15 more brand spanking new blocks complete with tutorials. If you want to get in on the Mystery Quilt you will find the tab for that there too!
If you missed yesterday's line-up for the New Block Block Hop, check out Yvonne's post. My block is here! There's a fabulous giveaway on each host's post for oh, 3 yards of fabric...
For another 30 or so blocks, and more giveaways (Fabri-Quilt has been so generous!) on
Wednesday you can visit Stephanie at Late Night Quilter.
