{Post 1,122} Forty-five Wild Geese

I have enjoyed making the last few of these blocks so much more than the first!  On the trip to my FIL's surprise 80th birthday party, I tamed all my stash of shirts, Thimbleberries, and some random leftovers from baby quilts, etc.  Now I just reach into the appropriate pile and get the right sized piece for paper piecing.  So fast, and much less waste.

Don't really have a plan for these other than to tame my overabundant stash of scraps.  Making little plastic templates really helped as well.  When I eye-ball a piece, it's sort of like putting leftovers away...the container is always way too big for the amount of food!

These are 4" unfinished:

Wow...4" the scrappiness of the quilt and the challenge of making blocks that small. Well done!
