More Blocks

Top of the Morning to You, Happy St Patrick's Day & may the Luck of the Irish be with you.
Well yesterday I had my friend over & we attempted our first go at some Flying Geese & they went quite well am pleased with them we did it the Eleanor Burns way as I have some of her Quilt in a Day Templates for Flying Geese so we did that.
After my friend left I managed to do the 4 blocks I need for my quilt in this pattern & colours just right with today being St Paddy's day lol
These have come out really well & are even bright than the photo shows
I have one more pattern block to do & have to do 5 of those, pieces cut but have to sew the triangles cut & press then start to assemble them once that all done I will cut the background fabric for my Sunbonnet Sues so am hope that I will be able to start on that very shortly, Friday I am not sure what my friend & I will try as we said we want to try new things if we not working on a project, I do also want to see if I can do a block say a star that uses the flying geese method in it just so I can say I done it.
On my Knitting I will have the sleeve finished today & will be able to start to sew it up so that will be finished & ready to post by end of the week.

Looks like you've mastered the flying goose block. It seems so many things I've worked on recently have geese blocks.

Wonderful geese! I love the green friendship stars! They will look great with yesterday's blocks.

What a busy day. Your flying geese look good, is it really the first time you've done them?
