Playing and pondering...


I have 9 made so far of my Triangle Galore Blocks. My goal at the time was to make a GREEN quilt.... So far so good. But then I start to play and options present themselves. Will I just join them block by block?

Or set them on point?  Will I add another block design in between them? maybe.  I love on point, but, I always do it... time for something new...


 Space and sash them? I rarely do that, But I did play to see the choices...

Something wild? I happen to have some scrap laying here that I stuck in to see how it worked. Of course that gets me all excited! The crazier the better!

Something safe?  bright red sashing?  nah.... not a fan of that... BUT, I can see GREEN flying geese set in the RED! Scrappy geese! Lot's of different green ones, and a few  purple and blue ones just for good measure!

Now I am on to something!  Stay tuned!


Look!
Geese Droppings.

(Couldn't resist)
heh heh ...


I'm off to Minnesota to my wee fishing cabin... I can't wait to have this view!
I'll be hand stitching,  on the dock of the bay!

Have a great LONG weekend!

  1. Okay, so since I have a small hand (block) in this quilt... hehehe... I thought I would add my two cents. I am such a fan of on point. What about on point with some crazy sashing? That I can get into. Black or red would be my choices. If you did red you would have another Christmas quilt in your hands. But I am sure whatever you decide it will be gorgeous!! Have a great time in MN. I think we are just going to keep criss- crossing the country. When will we both be on the east coast at the same time again???

  3. These blocks make me feel like I'm in the most brilliant garden -- riots of color. Perhaps you have bees buzzing close by? Happy "fishing."

  4. I love these green blocks! Have fun with the sashing. Me, I love a block on point! Beautiful my friend, as always! Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. Pretty blocks. I like them set together, on point. Sashings would look nice, but I like the design it makes without them.

  6. Thanks for letting me peek over your shoulder - I love watching your creative process. On point gets my vote, maybe FG around the outside... have fun on the dock :).

  14. I love the blocks and the colors: Red & green. So I like your geese and I would also use up the "droppings". I have been known to make little tiny HSTs with those trimmings. I think you are on to something here, but only 9 blocks?

  19. Hi, Victoria. Great blocks and the flying geese sashing seems perfect to me--They really dance! Enjoyed your photos of Quilt Market. I hadn't run across Luke Haynes work yet, so I'm glad you pointed readers (like me) in his direction.
    best,
