    Hi all,

    I'm in a frenzy, trying to complete my Christmas projects! In the name of saving time, I decided to do a pattern that I've already done in the past, but I have fewer fabrics for this project, so the blocks look different, and I'm having trouble seeing which arrangement is more attractive!!

    I'm doing the Flying Geese pattern that I used for these placemats:

    Ok, so I chose some really nice fabrics that match my mother's dining room color scheme, and I made up two sets to see how to arrange them. Having fewer fabrics makes this pattern look different!!

    I will be putting the border strips on either side, like before, too. Which way do you like the flying geese blocks set??

    Personally, I like the second one best, but they're both very pretty. I'm sure she'll love either.

    If you don't have them done already another option is to point them all out so it looks like they are flying around in a circle. Each point points toward a different side.
