Back when we were all excited about making cheddar bow ties, I read a post by someone who was using green for the background. The idea was so appealing that I bought some solid fabric with the intention of making a second quilt.
Then I saw the Goose on the Loose block at Alamasa Quilter. It's supposed to be part of a sampler, but I'm picturing an entire quilt made from this block.
I've been cutting the center pieces from the same strips I'm using for my scrappy sixteen-patch. If I stick with the measurements I've got planned, it will take five hundred of them. Sounds hard, but I've already got at least a hundred pressed and trimmed. With the Easy Angle and Companion Angle rulers, they're not bad at all. It also helps that I don't panic if I lose a point here and there.
