    1st off, I've changed my profile, when I post a message/pictures, etc.. I have a picture of my grdaughter, and her father/my son. I'm going to post 3 pictures. 1 is a picture with a blue star in the center, that, I will be working on for me.. The 2nd picture, is of the same pattern , but in different colors for the lady that does my machine quilting on my quilts for me. The 3rd picture, is of a quilt called Dizzy geese, is 1, that I did 5-6 years ago, and I cant find it.. I dont remember if I give it away, or what I did with it.. Anyhow, I dont know, what I should be called, but I've got 3 quilts going on at a time. Am I loosing it (ha-ha).. Don-isewman

    This is a picture, of the quilt for me, I posted 2-3 weeks ago.. All of the peices, are ready to be pinned together, to sew, as blocks..

    I like that blue one ... and, you are correct!
    Changing the colors definitely changed the look.
    I must really like the flying goose block because that is one attractive presentation of them.

    Now, I have a question ... how is it, that if we are constantly trying to use up our scraps, that we don't actually have a quilt that isn't scrappy? I don't know if there is anything wrong with you, but I am beginning to suspect that us scrap quilters are a bit unbalanced! LOL

    very nice don, isn't if funny how just changing the colors of fabric, adding more colors or less how the block takes on a completely different look. I just find that fasinating.

    Love your blocks, but is the one set of geese supposed to be facing the opposite direction as all the other sets?
