Birds Mystery-1st Block


Since my theme is birds, I couldn't resist making this goose block for the flying geese rule. The flying geese across the top represent (can you believe it?) flying geese! I did paper piecing on the flying geese. I tried to find a pattern I liked for the big goose but couldn't, so I just created my own. My son, Alan, a goose hunter, would be proud of me for using a goose decoy on the Cabela's site to guide me. My husband had a hard time seeing the goose until I had it all sewn together, then he had an aha moment and can now see it. Hope all of you can! What fun this is!!!

Ok Dorine, You amaze me. We truly are kin because I could see me looking on the Cabela web site AND making a pattern from something I saw there. Yes, it definitely is a goose.

What a story to go with your first block!

I will send out release #2 to you right away.

I love your goose block. Yup, it works perfectly with the rules and with your theme, and it's cool to boot.

P.S. I love the way the center of the flower becomes the goose's eye. Good planning.

That's great! Cabela's comes in handy for all kinds of things. I buy my bead organizers there. They think they are selling bait and fish hook containers.
