Here it is so far, and I'm quite happy with it. No more scrappy blues. Just the flying geese around a central panel of plain fabric (all the blue is Kona cotton in Nightshade). I'm planning to add an outer border using the same blue fabric.
This version has the bold, graphic look I was going for. I think it's a go, though I will probably tackle the "Plan C" pattern if and when it arrives here.
The flying geese are 3" by 6" finished; the final quilt will be 54" by 69" which is a generous size for a throw.
I'm glad I admitted I was not happy with my original effort and stopped spending more time on it. But that's my new philosophy of quilting. It is my hobby, I'm supposed to enjoy it, and when I don't enjoy what I'm making, I can stop and turn to something else. No fretting about UFOs; I'm calling them experiments from now on.
