What I’m working on

After finishing my old New York Beauty UFO I gave myself permission to start a new project. I’ve been working on some 4 patches as leader and enders so I went into Electric Quilt 8 to see if I could come up with a use for them.  I found this block which uses up four patches.

So then I  got  thinking about all the various Kona solid fat quarters I have kicking around. The plan is to use the Kona along with the scrap four patches. I’ve got another block that I’m going to use as

an alternate block. 

When the whole thing is together there will be a secondary design formed by the flying geese in the alternate block. This is what I have actually done so far. 

I’m going to use the really bright colours in these blocks and more medium to light tones in the alternates. I don’t have a name for this yet.

I’m linking up to Design Wall Monday,  Monday Making and Oh Scrap

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
