A few weeks ago I enjoyed watching Kate's Swoon quilt come together so I order the pattern from her shop. I had a hunt through my fabrics and found some Swell fat quarters I'd bought from Bec earlier this year but I needed two more for this quilt top. After thinking about it for a while I decided to make the blocks smaller thinking that with more blocks I could repeat more of the fabrics. Sunday night I drafted up a 12" block, cut out the fabrics yesterday afternoon and sewed it up.
The stripes are a bit all over the shop but, on the whole, I think it looks ok. I might cut out the rest of the blocks then put them away to take with me if I go to a quilting retreat next year - this would make a great quilt to sew at a retreat.
I made the flying geese using the no waste method and also used this method for the striped flying geese with the two different "sky" pieces as I was trying to reduce the number of seams. As there are a few stripes in my f/q bundle, I think I might have a go at trying to have all the small striped triangles running in the same direction as the pieces they join next time.
