I think they turned out A-okay!
I like the look of Jo's red with plaids, and I remembered I ordered one of those woven scrap bags from Keepsake Quilting that I'd never used. So, I dug in and found a few pieces I could use for background. I 'm also planning to use African fabrics in these blocks ... where will they go? who knows!
When I made the geese I didn't clip off the little corner of the rectangle as she instructed; the first ones I did were too uneven and off kilter, so I made new ones and left the background corners attached. Easier to square up that way. Also, she suggested squaring up at 6" but I did mine 6-1/2" in case I misunderstood; I can always trim them down.
So that takes care of last week's blocks... now to tackle this week's assignment!
Sew forth and sew on ...
