I’ve been playing with graph paper and coloured pencils and think my quilter’s block may have finally cleared. I have a plan for the bright fabrics I posted about a few weeks ago!
Well, a partial plan anyway. If my calculations are correct, I have plenty of fabric to make the 128 flying geese for this 46”x60” quilt center. 99 of them will be 2”x4” finished, and 29 will be 3”x6” finished.
