RSC14 week 14 Purple


Once again I didn't manage much rainbow work:

One star block, and four geese that headed off in the wrong direction.

As you can see at first  I had the fabrics switched, but I'm sure they'll come in handy before the end of April.

I used this McCall's tutorial to make the flying geese.units.  In this method the large square gives the four large triangles, and the four small squares give the eight small triangles.

So here the flying geese units need: 
1 large square = light
4 small squares = dark

I'm sure lots of other people have done much more, so head over to Soscrappy to see what they've made.

Happy sewing

Marly.

Super cute pink flowers on that lavender background! I have a fabric very similar to that.

It's a great beginning ... and you'll find a use for those flying geese :-)

I love this technique for making flying geese, especially when I have to make lots. Your block is a really fun combination of fabrics.

OOPS! I think we've all done this one time or another. Love the fabric choice for the block.

I'd use the "wrong way" geese to make another star in the opposite colours.

Pretty purples! You could always make a reverse star with those extra flying geese.
