Flock of Geese

Our Quilts of Valor Colorado group is doing a quarterly block again - and I think its a pretty easy one!

Of course - I am a fan of Half Square Triangles - so you know I would love this one!

Its called Flock Of Geese!!

We are doing it in this colorway ( exactly as shown)
and the block is 8 1/2 inch ( unfinished)

I played around with some settings
and if you see mistakes....

Well - its cuz Its not on the actual design wall!

I kinda like this one point one!
I think it looks aztecky!

And of course - with sashing.

Flock of Geese Block Pattern

I wrote up a Block Pattern for this - 

I did it two ways - the Traditional way using squares

as well as the Easy Angle way using strips 

So no matter what kind of quilter you are.... there is a method haha!

If you would like to make a block or two - we would not be opposed to adding them to our quilts.  (that's a nice way to say - send them in haha)

If you want to make a whole top for your Quilt of Valor group - I would absolutely love that - spread the love and lets get all those Veterans Touched by War Covered with a healing quilt!

I have a whole stack of abandoned red snowball blocks that could easily be turned into the 4" HSTs . . . and we all know I have a bunch of neutrals. Blues - lots of scraps. I'll see how many blocks I can make with those red starter pieces.

Look at all of the options! Very cool design and thank you for the inspiration. I think I see one happening here!

Looks real perky. I might try them if I can squeeze them in.

Aztecky? I know what you mean but laughed about the choice of words! I hope you get a slew of blocks turned in. I won't commit but who knows... I might send some. I love making blocks and then passing them on..... Have a great week!

Cathy said...

I might be able to handle a block or two!

How can we send blocks to you?

I am always thrilled when I see how one block can be used in so many different layouts to create so many different looks. Your layouts are all so stunning. Thanks for sharing the block pattern! Happy quilting! -Andrea

You get some really cool designs from that block. Looking forward to seeing some finished quilts in a few weeks.

Hoping to make a block or two by the end of the quarter, Alycia. Thanks for the instructions and setting suggestions!

A beauty in any layout, thanks for sharing.

I'm with you - I like the on point one

I like the diamond one, but that's a very versatile block, apparently.

What is the time limit on the collection of the blocks?
