Squaring the circle

Having managed to dispatch hubby off to the Golf Course yesterday I found some time to sit down and finally get that Circle of Geese block finished, and here it is.


Circle of Geese block

Thanks to Katy's FPPFTT course last year, I had already had a go at this block, so knew what to expect and apart from the usual attempt to squeeze a section out of a just too-small fabric scrap, it all went together swimmingly.

So I now have all 20 blocks completed and here they are together for the first time.




Forgive the un-ironed state of a few of them, they have been stuffed in a bag for ages waiting for the final blocks to materialise :)

The instructions for the Craftsy BOM use the same fabric as the background in the blocks for the sashing, but I am not sure about that. I am leaning towards a dark navy for the sashing but can't make up my mind, all suggestions welcome! 

I need to make my mind up soon if I want to take advantage of the upcoming sale in my LQS.

Although this isn't a finished quilt top or even quilt, it certainly feels like a finish to me so I am linking up to  Crazy Mom Quilts

  4. Beautiful!

    I think if you use the same fabric as you have in the blocks, the blocks will disappear into the background - a nice contrasting fabric either paler or darker would make them pop and navy sounds like a great choice.

  7. oh gosh, that's awesome! i quite like the idea of the same colour bashing, makes the elements (geese etc) look as if they are floating, but the navy will frame them, what do i know?

  11. Well done on getting all the blocks done! I think a navy sashing would be perfect! Or at least as the binding ;)

  12. They look great all together. I think navy sashing would work really well to show off each of the blocks.

  20. congratulations you are almost there! All the blocks are fantastic! I think a dark navy fabric for the sashing will make them pop even more.

  21. I always feel like I've learned something new with a sampler. That is one of my favorite shades of blue. Trying to catch up on some of my blog reading I'm a bit behind.
