What materials did you use? Bits and pieces left from other projects (mainly Fabric Freedom's "Pure Velvet" range).

What are you most proud of? The fact that the flying geese came out more or less okay. This was much easier for me than the first August block, thank goodness, and I didn't need to unpick it at all. It might not be perfect, but I'm quite happy with it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Flying geese are easier than they look and there are several ways of making them. Amy demonstrates a very good method, and it's quite easy to be acceptably accurate with it.

Well done & wonderful points. Pretty block. Thanks for sharing.
