There’s a flock of flying geese in these blocks and I had a crazy time getting them tamed. I’ll post about that a little later.


The K quilt top

K quilt


I can’t back up far enough from my design wall to get a good picture! The “K” block I showed you last week was not working, so I changed it slightly. I had this put together once and it was completely out of square, so this is the second assembly. Lesson learned…measure carefully as you go!! A tiny eighth inch discrepancy in several pieces added up to 2+ inches off from top to bottom. You’d think I’d know better by now!

I’m linking up to Sarah’s blog. Check it out!





  1. Cool blocks! They are going to make one gorgeous quilts. I love the fabrics you are using, which really shine with these patchwork designs.

    Cool K quilt too! I hate it when you're off by such a small amount, making it frustrating and hard to figure out which direction to go.

    Happy to see you're so productive these days!

  2. Whoop-whoop! I LOVE your blocks and "k" quilt. I look forward to hearing how you tamed those geese.

  3. That K quilt is something! What a great idea - can I steal it? (the idea, not the quilt!) And I love your blocks - I think this is going to turn out to be a beautiful quilt. Can't wait to see the rest of the blocks. You had a great week - whoop whoop!!! ;-)

  4. Fun, fun blocks, Vicki.
    I've tamed flying geese with Patti Anderson's technique--it's really fun and so very accurate!
