i liked the mix of bright colors and low-volume blenders; and i especially liked the giant flying geese blocks surrounded by randomly sized strips.
so i walked into my sewing room and started pulling fabric.
i decided my flying geese would be made from the gorgeous large-scale floral by dylan mierzwinski for free spirit fabrics. there was a small pile of fabrics from an order that hadn't been put away yet which i thought coordinated really well and had the same feel i wanted.
i recently saw a tip to sew both seams for the hsts before you cut the outer triangles off, just like you would when making a pair of hsts.
what a great idea!
my personal tip: i always press before i cut my hsts off.
i got out that stack of fabrics i wanted to use and just started laying pieces out in a pleasing configuration, folding them up to fit different sized spots.
i pulled a few more scraps and coordinating fabrics out to fill in little gaps and to add a bit more blue.
once i liked it, i began cutting pieces to size and sewing.
