Stella Blue and I have been creeping along together…slowly but surely.

All of the fabric is cut (some of it is wrong…but can be fixed.  boo.)

all cut out

I am using a flying geese ruler to make these geese…which means that the geese are less scrappy than the version that Carrie put together for the cover quilt.  Her version of the quilt has two different blues for each geese block…so that each large star has 8 different blues…and lots of different cream backgrounds. 

I think like the symmetry of every star “matching”…rather than my other option of having each side be a different blue.  I haven’t made enough geese yet to test out that layout, but I certainly will before everything is sewn together.

So what do you think?  Do you like the matched version, or do you think that I should go with something scrappier?
