Last week I showed 3 blocks so there's only going to be one this week. It's called Wild Goose Chase. Isn't that a great name for a quilt block?
When you look for images there are many variations. Some look just like this one but others either have more flying geese units or triangles instead of squares in the corners. Still others are completely different. Here is my favorite Wild Goose Chase reference.
My Wild Goose Chase is a 10 inch block and at 41 pieces is complicated. Imagine adding in 4 or more flying geese. However, the pattern that is created when the blocks touch each other are beautiful and would be worth the effort.
This is the last block in the quilt that is in my comfort zone. The remaining blocks are going to stretch my limits and make me learn new techniques. Luckily there's not that many left.
I'm also running out of completed blocks to show. I have 2 for next weekend and I just started another block. So, the rest of the blocks may not be revealed as regularly as before. If I get too far behind I can start revealing some of the history that I've learned about the original quilt. I also need to start preparing the fabric for the sashing and I can start assembling some of the sections of the quilt.
I also need to decide if I will use the same setting for both sets of blocks. The traditional set of blocks is definitely going to be set identically to the original quilt. For the more modern blocks, I'm not sure yet.
