Kate’s geese

Here are my nine for the month – I adore this colourway, thanks for choosing it, Sophie. In the photo, some of the purples and golds look similar – each of the “geese” is in a different fabric and although I have then used some of those fabrics for the strips down the sides, I haven’t used them all – I’ve thrown in a few extras – and no fabric is used more than two places (once as geese, once as strips) – I’ve also managed to use 3 different BOBs – believe it or not, I had small pieces of about 5 or 6 in my stash, so this was a great way to use up some of those otherwise not very practical pieces. (I often find that’s true of the block lotto – one of the reasons I like it.) Sometimes I donate my chances, but not this month – I want these!!

I also really like this setting – as you can see, I have actually made a small quilt top using a similar setting – and, looking back, I can see a (rather bad) photo of a quilt I made a long time ago – well, 2001 – for my daughter, which also uses this sort of setting. The quilt is much brighter in person, I have to say.
