Bloom-Topia: Release 7 from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I'm cruising right along with my Bloom-Topia blocks. Today I'm sharing my Release 7 blocks for this fun charity quilt along with Fat Quarter Shop.  



Our assignment was to make two long Geese blocks, each measuring 6 1/2" x 18 1/2".  One of the Geese blocks was then used as the middle portion of the larger block, the Geese and Gander block, which finished at 18 1/2" x 30 1/2". 


I introduced a bit of Sweet Tea fabric (by Sweetwater) into these blocks.  The navy with white pin dot is from ...
