Plaids and Plains: Flying geese update!

I have been working hard on these blocks; my "plaids and plains"  flying geese blocks.  They are fun, and when you get into a rhythm, they are fast.  Five seams each...and I thought I would put a little surprise into this quilt, thus the plain muslin pieces at the top of the quilt.  Just can't leave well enough alone, can I?  Hee!!!

Hope you all are have a wonderful day!!

Na, that's just a contrail obscuring those geese near the top. They are really all there in their glory :)

Chalk up another beautiful scrap creation from your hands, Julie. And the diagonal of plain muslin is a genius touch! Wonderful!!

its going to be another stunning quilt. I love the scrappiness, and the plain diagonal allows the eye to rest a bit. Well done!

I would probably add another row near the bottom, or place the plain rectangles so that the geese form the classic "V" formation in flight. Looks amazing.

I like the surprise of the plain blocks. A resting place for the eyes. Are you about to run out of plaids?

You did work hard on this one. I can't believe it is almost completed. Kudos, my dear! I love the surprise on top. Set on an angle like that, it adds more interest and is just perfect. Kind of whimsical a little bit. Makes the eye search for more plaids, and when it finds it, it goes back up to the empty space. Love it Big time!! ;^)

I love this sooooo much!! I've been enjoying those geese right along, but that plain diagonal just makes it perfect!

Kyle said...

I'm in agreement. The diagonal plain blocks are perfect. Just a small break in the geese formation.

The way you put the plain pieces, catches the eye nicely.

The plain blocks are wonderful - they give the project more character!!! Great idea. The entire quilt is wonderful as well! 8-)))

I like it ! That's how I am........I always want to throw in some little unexpected twist. It took everything within me not 'Dolly-up" my most recent top (which I haven't shared yet. So It all came out when I decided to totally piece a back for it !

This is going to be a GRAND quilt....can hardly wait to see it quilted.
