    Okay, here's more proof I'm a maverick and can't leave well enough alone, that I've been affected more than I thought by the "modern" quilt movement, and that it's really hard to get imprecisely cut tiny triangles to match up. I can think of all kinds of names for this block but haven't settled on one....wild goose chase, winter migration, merrwe go round, silly geese, winter whirlwind....

    When I saw all the geese of Rhonda's block going 'round I thought, cool, what if they were going round a star in a night sky? I cut a bunch of squares and rectangles to make the geese. Then I though, what if I can make it look more 3-d and use a bunch of those weird triangle scraps I saved? I see I also reversed their direction.

    Very clever Foxflower. Now if you were a liberated quilter you would make those triangles off kilter so they wouldn't have to line up!

    So true! I guess I just don't have my wonk on. I don't like geese with tweeked heads either but couldn't avoid them completely.

    Foxflower are you left-handed? One reason for your geese flying the other direction. I love the baby geese growing up & becoming adults. Very creative.

    Actually, I'm right handed. Funny thing though, I had to turn three sections around after sewing them in because I'd sent them the wrong way! Maybe that's why.

    Thanks everybody for the sweet compliments. Is anybody else working of the blocks?

    I find I am left right challenged and always have to carefully think of where pieces should go
    Wish I could join on the quilt along. Actually am working with my GD on making quilts from her GGPA's old shirts. We have 1 done and working on the second.

    Count me in for this quilt along. I have soooo much scraps 4 extra large rubbermaid containers to be exact. I inherited my grandmother's quilting things including her stash. I have found original material from the 50's and later.

    I do need a 3 1/2 template. PM is on its way!

    Thanks!!

    Well here are my 3 blocks so far. The flying geese block was fun. Mine does look a little abstract, so I made the middle block as one block to help solidify.Name:  Block 3 .JPG

    Got my template in today's mail. Gonna get started on my blocks next week. Have to sort the stash. I just put it all in the tubs and didn't organize it. That was a mistake! Live and learn.

    I am saving these, I love scrap quilts and I am going to use my program to print out the hst's to finish at 3" so I can do an 18" finished block. Have to get a couple of other block exchanges out first. But will do a catch up next week. So do I need to PM you to participate.

    WEEK 5 - Xs and Os - Kansas Dugout Blocks

    Here is this weeks Quilt Block

    This one uses the kansas dugout block. It is a traditional block or unit so it is not my original design
    but it isn't hard to make.

    Here is my shortcut method for making these.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...ks-t59742.html

    So you make as many Kansas Dugouts as you need and then sew them into the quilt block.

    Quilt Block for this week Feb 18

    Here is the quilt block. Sorry I lost track of time and didn't get it posted on Sunday.

    this one uses my Kansas Dugout cut down method and my 4 Patch squares cut down method.
    so this is still a 4 rows of 4 blocks per row.

    Week 8 - Cross

    This week I want to try something new when it comes to explaining how to piece the quilt block I chose for this week.

    This quilt block is made with HSTs - Half Square Triangles and plain blocks

    You will need a 2 1/2" template to make a 12 1/2" quilt block.

    My HST tutorial
    Really Easy Half Square Triangle Blocks


    I used 6 rows of 6 "blocks" per row. I broke that down into 4 - 9 patch units
    So I am going to show you the 9 Patch first and then show you how to make that unit.
    You will need to make 4 of these units. Then sew the 4 -9 Patch units together into the 12 1/2" quilt block. I think and I hope this will make the process easier to understand. Any feedback on this is greatly appreciated. Positive and negative comments will allow me to adjust my teaching methods.

    Here is the 9 Patch and the layout of the blocks and where the colors go.
    You'll need to make 4 of these. they should measure 6 1/2" for each unit.
    this is the place to trim or to fix any seams that aren't right.
