Design Wall Monday

This week I've spent my sewing time making half square triangles out of 5" charms. I have a bin full of charms and Pat Speth is helping me use them. She is sharing her Deli Geese Project on her blog, Nickel Quilts. She is up to block 31. I have sewn 2. But I have a plan........

This is block #2-Rhett (since seeing this picture, I have redone the center-ugh!) . Each pair of blocks have cute names. I love scrappy so my blocks will be total scrapiness. I've made a few quilts using Pat's designs. I love them all.
My plan is to make a bunch of Geese units and then kit up the rest for a May retreat project.

I have been a member of Mr. B's Preview Pack Club for quite a while. Plus I have been in numerous swaps and 5" squares are part of my Scrap User's System, so I have a lot of charms. It's time they are used!  These blocks will make fun quilts.  I don't know how many blocks Pat is going to share, I just keep printing them for my notebook and now that I've started making them..............will they make it to retreat?

This block looks terrific. Good luck with the rest.

I have done just one Pat Speth Quilt. It was fun! I surprised you didn't tell about going to Bonnie's class in JUNE here. That wasn't publicized too early. I'm glad you and Sonja get to go!
