Gaggle of Geese

my geese units

Here are some of the geese I made this weekend for Micki's Flying Geese swap on the Scrappy Quilts Forum. More like these will be going to the 11 women in the swap--these are the left-overs for me, me, me.

I couldn't help but think of the real geese which disappeared with the first snow in October. Rumor has it that they didn't go far ... just down the road to another complex. I think the cats miss them, even if they were a little frightened when they came this close.

The lotto block for November is Hearth & Home. Amy, Lee Ann and Vanessa made these.

For a controlled scrappy look, block makers are asked to pick 2 from this list for 4 possible fabric choices:
  • Red tone-on-tone (TOT)
  • White on white (WOW)
  • Back & White
  • Gray TOT (includes fabric known as BOB or black on black)
There are 12 possible combinations. Everyone is encourage to make one comfortable choice and one that's maybe a little out of their comfort zone.
