In an effort to lighten my fabric stash, I’ve taken a part in the Star Surround Quilt-Along hosted by Melissa of Happy Quilting.
This week’s task was flying geese…. a LOT of flying geese. I have sixteen (16) colors and twelve (12) geese per color. That would be 192 geese, thank you very much!
Done! 8:30 Sunday night, but done all the same.
At this pace, Melissa is going to have us finish this baby in record time.

I’m doing 16 also. It was a ton of trimming, but like you I’m thrilled to be done! Yours look great. I love their cheeriness. : )
There is a ton of trimming! I keep reminding myself this will be a Christmas present finished early. 🙂
I’m off to check yours out.
Yes, that is a whole lot of geese. Great job on getting them all whipped up!!! Now you get to see the fruits of your labor start to come together this week. Yippee!!
Yay! The fun part. 😀
It’s a gaggle. Very cool. I may jump in late and make one 48″ block. I kinda think it’s cheating, though. I’ve seen all the work that ya’ll have put in, but I really want to participate, I just haven’t had much time. I love the colors you chose. Great geese!!
That’s not cheating. We’re all doing different sizes anyway. I think most sane people chose something a little more manageable! LOL

She is doing a giant 64″ block. I’m thinking of doing that one later to use up more of my stash. (so I can by more fun fabric like your Geekly Chic ;-))
