The Goose is Loose!

It's taken me a bit of time to pull together fabrics to start my Flying Home quilt. I had a hard to time to find blue for the background of the quilt. After looking in a few stores for the very palest blue fabric and not being able to find it, I decided to dye it myself. It is very pale, just the way I wanted it.
So my strategy is to do all the cutting of the fabrics, (ie: make a kit).
With that done, the next step is to piece the 8 geese blocks. I have the piecing of the sub-blocks (with diagonal seams) done and this is what the components look like before my final piecing of the blocks begin.
My plan is to complete the eight goose blocks by the end of the weekend.

I love that pattern; can hardly wait to see how you quilt it. Have you thought that far ahead yet?

Being a blogger who focuses on nature photography I am in love with your geese quilt block. I also sew sometimes and I would love to access the geese pattern which you have used.How can I find a copy of it? I live near Fredericton also, can I buy it somewhere locally? 34 degrees predicted today!!!!!
