New Template Explorations

Mom found this template from Eleanor Burns for making 'easy' flying geese blocks.
I offered to give it a try and teach her how to do it so she could make them when she gets back to New York.
We cut the odd shaped squares and sewed and cut and sewed and pressed! 
And from the odd block we cut flying geese! 
I made two with the lighter geese on the left;  these are the traditional blocks but I made the opposite just to see what would happen.  I think they would make a very interesting contrast to each other!
Mom wants to make a scrap flying geese quilt.
She's ready to go now!
