We have moved on to By the Shores of Silver Lake and this is block 11 in our Little House on the Prairie Sew Along. Apparently the smaller type wasn’t such a big deal because Lily is flying through this book. Mary loses her eyesight in this book due to scarlet fever. Laura describes things to her and Mary says that her words paint beautiful pictures. Laura describes a few sunsets and talks about wild geese. I told Lily that there is a type of triangle called Flying Geese in quilting and maybe we could use them to make a sunset block. She liked the idea and this is what I came up with.
We chose the fabrics together to try to achieve good gradations in color. We looked for prints that had bits of the color that we were moving toward or away from to help blend them together. I think it makes for a beautiful block. The geese are a bit challenging. Lily lost the tip of one but I don’t think that’s bad at all for a beginner!
