Description

It's Caribous month and she always picks really cool blocks. This one is no different. I love the fact that we had no HST's to sew but what's more I love the way she's using the light and dark gray neutrals as the background and bright prints to play against them. I finished the yellow one first but have the pieces for an aqua one already cut out and ready to go. This was great fun!

Constructing the Flying Geese reminded me of the Split Units that Kim Brackett uses in her many jelly roll patterns ( Scrap Basket Sensation is one of her books) however Kim just stops at one. This was ingenious of ColorGirlQuilts to come up with this idea. Way cool! I've used "cool" quite a bit today but can't think of a better description....

So happy that I had some quiet time today to be able to finish both the yellow and aqua block.  I love this block +Caribousmom! Oh I forgot to say that I took the aqua one at night so the grays are leaning more to the tans but trust me they are definitely gray. ( I updated the dirty gray picture. It was bugging me all night long). Not too crazy here.

Great block! Love fabrics.

Thanks! This is going to be one very "cool" quilt (there I go again). Can't wait to see the other blocks...

Caribousmom

Love them, Terry! I can't wait to see this quilt all put together :) And I recognize some of those neutrals, so yes...I know they are gray!! LOL. Thank you so much!

Terryt1955

Glad you like it Caribousmom ! If I didn't have to clean my house for Mymble and Hawkfan I'd make more. I have finally acknowledged that fabric has taken over my house and garage. It is a sickness I tell you!

True

Love your second block...awesome!!

Terryt1955

Thanks True ! I am a big fan of Flying Geese. Between this block and the one Paula had us do I am sure to copy one of them.
