The inaugural block was flying geese. Almost immediately, I sketched out an idea with spinning borders containing a row of triangles/flying geese.
With a design in mind, I went to work selecting my fabric palette and found some great prints in the
Lagoon collection. I then ordered some Marine and Starfruit polka dots, along with Cotton Couture solids in Marine, Acid, Bright White and Clay--and hopefully enough yardage to complete all 12 monthly block challenges with extra for putting them all together into a finished quilt.
While I waited for my fabrics to arrive, I used EQ7 to draft up the final block layout, which would be paper pieced.
