HUGE flying geese go wild!

I guess you could think wildlife when you see that headline.  But this is the more sedate flying geese that go into a quilt.  they are so totally useful.  They can be on the four sides of a solid (or not) block and form a star.  Or they can be a border around a quilt center.  Or they can be the center of the quilt themselves.beth crop

The April Girl in our Virtual Quilting Bee chose the versatile Flying Geese Block for her month.  But with a wild twist!  She wants it to be a lime green background with the triangle made from 15 Minute Fabric (scraps sewn together in totally random abandon) and she wants them 15 inches wide!

Now that is going to be some quilt!   Here are my blocks.  And let me tell you, there was a definite learning curve here.  What is fine in a 2 1/2 by 5 block is totally different in a 15 inch block!

I will leave you with pictures from my yard of beautiful flowers.and the stupid neighbor cat who keeps coming in to eat the birds and getting run up the tree by the dogs.  The azaleas are in full bloom here in Louisiana.  And the winter pansies are still churning out flowers like crazy in the strong sunshine. 

I heard there was going to be 2 feet of snow in New England…….
