Quiltmaker Block #178


“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship”  Louisa May Alcott

I used the Quilt in a Day 2″ finished size mini geese ruler to make the 8 flying geese units. I was pleased with the results.  Using strong contrasts in value makes the star points the focus of the block.  It does not show in the  photo but the two darkest fabrics are a very dark green and a dark purple.  Because the values are so similar they appear as the same fabric from a distance.
