I wanted to share a few more things on this piece:
There are seven geese flying across the top of the quilt. I cut out each piece and painted them individually to blend with the background they are near. I wanted them to be a subtle addition, and not detract from the Gaggle walking. Here they are pinned in place.
Close up showing variation in color of the geese:
A section of Flying Geese units were inserted here just below one of the flying geese. I thought that looked cool!
Grounding the Geese:
A put a section of "land" under the feet of the geese so that it didn't look like they were floating on air. It also looked a little like a shadow.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
