My daughter attends the same independent high school where my husband teaches and each year, I have made a quilt in the school colors to donate to the Parents Association Auction. Here are a couple examples from prior years.
The school mascot is the falcon so I want to do something with flying geese blocks. This is what I have on my design wall so far but I am not loving it.
The geese finish at 3" by 6", the same size as the blue rectangular blocks which I have arranged like bricks or subway tile. I need to cut more "tiles" to fill in the empty spots if I am going to finish this but I am seriously considering moving on to Plan B. Plan B involves a different arrangement for the flying geese, where they would form a border around a plain center. I have about 80 of the flying geese made, which I think will be enough for that plan.
But then there is Plan C. I found a pattern online, ordered it, and am awaiting its arrival in the mail (should be this week). If I go with either Plan B or C, the pieces I cut from the blue fabric can be put to another use (I'm thinking string quilt).
Decisions, decisions. Stay tuned for an update.
