Goosey, goosey...

After much fiddling around I have finished a geese block for Diane in the Modern Stitching Bee!  

I have managed to sneak in a few imposter or HST units but I think the overall look is geese-like!!




Think I'll need to follow the KISS rule for the second one as this took so long to do!

If I were to make another I'd be tempted to paper piece it for greater accuracy - but from a distance with one eye shut, hoping up and down on one leg I don't think it looks too bad!

  3. Oh that's what I do with my piecing (the jumping up and down bit) - always!! Yes, it qualifies as goosey to me.

  5. your block looks great up close, even if I don't squint and hop up and down a kilometre away.
    I think she will appreciate all that work and time you have put into it too.
