Over the last two days, I have been walking thru the process of designing a quilt using leftover scraps. Here is the third….and final….. installment!!
As I continued thinking about the outside border, I remembered some other, smaller blocks that were in the stash…..
At some point, I had sewn them together to make Half-Square Triangle blocks.
And, if I put TWO of them together, I get another flying geese…..
So now I could use these pieced Flying Geese to finish the side border…..
….keeping the triangles with green outlines for the top and bottom.
The geese on the outside are a bit abstract and only a few of them actually show up as geese, but I think that it is working okay…..
So, let’s add one more border to tie it all together…..
I am pleased with the result and really had fun playing with the Flying Geese designs.
There are still some leftovers!!!
I guess that they will become seeds for the next time Alice and I have a tea party “Down the Rabbit Hole”.
Now if I can just remember what I was working on before I found these scraps???
Does anyone remember????

Ha! I have a hard enough time remembering where I am when I emerge from my own rabbit holes! Got it! Alice is the enabler!
Alice is definitely the enabler!!!
Since I had to look back for yesterday’s and then the first day’s I discovered you were working on the stork!
But I’m loving this piece and glad you got it to where you like it. I have some wild Tula Pink solids and an FQ of her Linework, and knew i wanted geese in it; hmm, this may work for me too!
I have really fallen in love with flying geese and recently bought a tool that is making them even easier. Tula fabrics would be amazing!!! And, the stork is back on the work table this week!!!
