More modifying tradition…

Circle of Geese (not Modify Tradition)

I added these blocks to my Modify Tradition sampler pile this week. I’m up to nine blocks, which is the amount I wanted for a small quilt. The Circle of Geese block seemed like a good idea at the time, but it took me hours to complete. The results are nice, but not nice enough to justify how little I enjoyed the process of making it. I also think the seams are painfully obvious. The middle looks like a jumble to me…I’ve always thought that about the others I’ve seen, so I don’t know why I thought mine would be different! I will probably never make this block again.

I know I never show WIP shots, but I am so excited about this new project! I fussy-cut almost 400 pieces for the pieced part of the quilt (in case you’re wondering, it took about six hours) and sewed 25% of them together:

Off to spend the day stippling and sewing binding on an old top…happy quilting!

    I think the picture of your quilt on the old weathered wood would make a great art quilt!L.M.

    I can’t wait to see the sampler! but yeah, sometimes paper piecing is more of a pita that it’s worth.

    now what are you up to with the modern meadow and hope valley?
