...she doesn't have the sense God gave geese

North and South, staggered set 

We had geese when I was little--until they kept knocking me down so they became meals. We had the same trouble with a rooster that kept knocking me over and pecking me--my Grandma made soup with him.
And my kids wonder where my pragmatism comes from.

84 geese in flight blocks are made and I am playing with sets. Leaning towards the staggered north and south right now, but the straight set north and south is appealing to me more and more.

Great progress on the geese. I like staggering layout best but that's just me. It will be an awesome in any layout because the blocks are so cheerful. Enjoy! ;^)

Your geese are great fun. I really like how the background extends further right and left than most flying geese blocks. Don't you love getting to play with layouts?

Wherever they fly the geese look great. I prefer the woven geese.

I love your solid on print series. This one reminds me of the nursery rhyme "Goosey, Goosey Gander, whither will you wander? Upstairs, downstairs, or in our ladies chamber?" (Wonder what historical figure this one describes.)

Wow! Glad *I* don't have to choose... All the layouts are interesting in their own way, so you can't go wrong!

Love the saying, which I hadn't heard before. Flying geese are amongst my favourites and yours look lovely whichever way they fly.
