My friend Judy gifted me with a bag of fabric from cleaning/purging her sewing room. This was a project she started in a class many years ago and over time lost interest in it. I'm guessing it's about 20 years old? For those of you who are local, it dates back to the original Greenwood Quiltery location on Suffolk, so that's a long time ago!
Judy's piecing has always been meticulous and she is very organized as you can see. She has everything labelled and even stored the pattern with the fabric!
It was easy to pick up right where she left off. However, I didn't want to make the original pattern design which would require a lot of seam matching. This is an example of a block in the original design.

That was way too much seam matching for me. So I made a slight alteration and instead of the flying geese going all the way around the square, the geese are going to be only on 2 sides. See the old graphic for the original design at the bottom of the handout?
So pretty! This is older Robyn Pandolph fabric. Those of you who have been quilting a long time will remember this.
That red square really stands out so I either need to take it out, or add more red in. What would you do?
