Blogger’s Block-a-Palooza: Block #10 – Turned Geese

It took me a few extra days to get at Amy’s Creative Side’s 10th block for the Bloggers Block-A-Palooza due to a 3rd birthday celebration and a horrible cold…but I did it!

Block 10 - Turned Geese Amy’s method of creating the geese was a simple one…if I would have had a clear head and put all my fabrics right sides together.  Turns out that I got one of my four blocks put together properly…didn’t realize it until after I did the first round of cuttings so spent plenty of time seam ripping on this one (completely my own fault).  BUT I think it still turned out nicely and no one will ever know that I had to rip out the majority of these pieces…

 

I do really like how Amy created a block out of just two blocks (one being just a simple square…the other the flying geese) and created something that looks really complicated.  If you sit down and follow her directions…this block is not complicated at all!Blocks 1 - 10

An overview of the 10 blocks I have finished thus far.  I hope to get Block 11 put together tomorrow…right now my head is swimming too much and I don’t feel like ripping a bunch of seams again :)
