WIP Wednesday- Circle of Geese

Just one block to show you this week, but I reckon its a stunner!

When I initially saw the circle of geese block a few short weeks ago, I never dreamed that I would be able to sew one. Well here is proof that you should never say never! I LOVE it and I am proud to say that there was a very very minimal amount of unpicking required during the sewing of this block!

I used this pattern, and again referred to the great paper piecing tips from here.

This was definitely smoother sailing than my first paper pieced block as I dared to trust my ability and cut everything before sewing rather than as I was going along. I sewed the first quarter just to test that everything was ok and then I went ahead and did the remaining three quarters at the same time- a far more efficient way to work!

I just realised that I forgot to mention that I have signed up for round two of Cat's 3 x 6 Modern Sampler Bee. This time there will be two groups taking part. My group consists of Cat, Leonie, Nin, Kelli, Debra and Sharon.

I can't wait to see what these talented women come up with and I am looking forward to adding their blocks to my quilt with pride! I've just got to decide what I want to make this time round- its difficult narrowing down the possibilities!

Not much change to the collage this week, but here it is again...
