The geese are done!

The geese are done!!    I choose to make the 324 geese and their associated rectangle blocks using 17 of the FQ from the yummy Blueberry Park FQ bundle.  (One of the geese was too shy for this group photo - sigh.)

What do 324 geese look like?   They are overflowing my plastic shoebox.

This is the block which finishes at 8''.  I'm planning a block layout of 9 x 9. 

I've made enough fundamental pieces for a 9 x 9 layout -

But I'm also thinking about having some negative space like this.

Not sure how I'll go until I start making some more blocks!

Everything is now kitted in groups of 5 blocks and I can't wait to get started.  (Perhaps my OMG goal for July???)  I've already made the spa appointment with my LAQ for late August.

Making all the geese blocks and the rectangle with triangle (whatever you call that) blocks was my goal for June.  (goal post)  I'll be linking up with OMG here at Red Letter Quilts.
