I’ve been playing with EQ 6 quite a bit trying to come up with ideas for my DQS 12. One of the requirements of the swap for this round is to use at least one block from a given list and to incorporate it into our quilt. For some reason I really want to use Flying Geese units in this quilt.
For those of you who aren’t quilter’s, this is a flying geese unit:
I really liked them in the New York Beauty block I made up. Which got me to thinking about designing a block with just flying geese units. I have too many ideas rolling around in my head that I could never make them up in fabric. Thank goodness for EQ6 where I can quickly do a digital mock up of my idea to see what works and what doesn’t!
Here is one of the first mini quilts I designed. As far as I know this is an original layout by me.
I like it a lot, but I may be biased! I would use prints instead of solids for all the “geese.” I would use Kona Cotton in charcoal for the gray solid. What do you think?
I think I’m going to play with it some more and see what it looks like as a block in a bed size quilt.
