Black and White and Red All Over Quilt (part 9)

The penultimate pair of blocks I made were Foundation Paper Pieced blocks. These involved sewing fabric onto perforated paper, folding the paper to trim away the excess, and repeating in sequence until the paper was covered. The first block was stitched in a simple order, but the direction of the lines and triangles changed to make the fun final design of the block.

The Circle of Geese is a really fun and bold design, but required a bit more thought following the instructions. Luckily with foundation paper piecing all the pieces are labelled and you just have to follow the numbers in sequence. I really like the finished block, although there are a lot of seams (which is why I chose to use black as the background for this)
