Chris here again - still catching up on my NYC Metro Mod Quilt Guild Bee Blocks - October this time and our Queen Bee is my lovely friend Maria.
Here's the Bee Block package:
Block 1 - Orderly Flying Geese
Create 4 Flying Geese units using the No Waste Method available here at patchpieces.com and join the 4 units together point to base to create a 14.5" x 7.5" block.
Use the Cotton+Steel solid fabric supplied (I think mine's Gale Force but not 100% sure - it's a really deep dark grey) as the sky or the geese plus another fabric of own choice.
I used the Cotton+Steel solid as the geese and my sky is Philip Jacobs for Rowan, Cactus Dahlias Gold - I've used it previously as the backing for my Autumn's Golden Gown quilt (this link includes a tute for the quilt top :D ).
Block 2 - Liberated Flying Geese
Use the same two fabrics as Block 1 and add a third fabric of own choice.
Maria gave three sizes choices for the block and I chose 14.5" x 14.5".
This time I've used the Philip Jacobs fabric for the Geese and the solid and additional fabric for the Sky. I have no idea what my third fabric is, I took it from my scrap stash - though I do know it came into my possession back in July 2012 for another Bee Block - Liberated Log Cabin for Binita.
I made four Flying Geese units then extended each to 14.5" wide.
Here's how it looks upside down - should Maria choose to use it this way!
And the two blocks side by side.
Almost up to date on the my Guild blocks - just one more to go before Saturday's Guild meeting - the last one's a Lotto Draw Block and guess what the theme is - yep Flying Geese - watch out for that one coming up very soon!!!
As always you can check out all the blocks that our Bee make for Maria on my Quilty - Flying Geese Pinterest Board - I'll add more pins as each person in the Bee posts photos of their finished blocks and you can see my NYC Mod Quilt Guild post here too.
