For May, my theme is flying geese. I'm sending you a quarter yard cut of Lemon Shot Cotton, an orange print, a brown print, and three various other light value prints. I'm including lots of Heather Ross' print, I have to use them up before the new collection arrives *wink*. The finished block size should be 12.5" square. If you have the time, Iwould be thrilled if you could make more than one block

The inspiration is this Nettie's wonderful quilt. I love all the triangles going in different directions but still feel united by the same background color.

crazy geese quilt by a quilt is nice


For easy instructions on how to make flying geese, I found this link:

For myself, I'm planning to make it the easy way using half square triangles method. And on the premier Fat Quarterly (which I'm sure a lot of you were a part of) there's a lot excellent inspirations for flying geese blocks. You could have your geese flying every which way you want.

You could add prints from your own stash, anything that you think would work with my selection. Feel free to keep any scraps you'd like to use, but otherwise please send them back to me.

Here are some more pretty geese and happy sewing!
