Block 8 “Wild Geese”
I made a few changes to construction… rather than making it out of half-square triangles, I opted for fewer seams and made flying geese instead. Because I’m making the smaller 4.5″ finished block size, I figured fewer seams would be helpful.
The first block is made in Love Note. I often use the “Lovey Dot” heart print for the block backgrounds. Which can present a challenge as it’s unidirectional. Sometimes I have to pay attention during cutting, and almost always when I’m piecing and placing prints right-sides together.
The second set is in Flower Pot fabric. These blocks are In the 4.5″ finished size and look a little funky since they aren’t sewn into the quilt-top yet.

Your Flower Pot blocks are my favourite of the Wild Geese blocks I’ve seen so far. Maybe because the way you’ve actually got the ‘geese’ looking like geese in white. In actual fact, I think they could be Wild Swans 🦢 🦢😍
