Pondering changes of scale

I'm not piecing much this week - being more than ready to finish the thing I'm currently quilting, I  am spending most of my spare time hand stitching, in an attempt to get it done.  But I have done a wee bit more, and this piece continues to simmer away in the back of my head, even when I'm not working on it.
Everything is stitched, at least partially, to something else, except for the section of wedges with the pink-footed goose in it.  Looking at this now, I am wondering if I need a change in scale, so that some of the wedges are shorter.  Of course the bird names dictate the size of the piece, to some extent, but I may look at my bird list for more shorter names, or maybe make some wedges without the printing.   On the other hand, maybe this is just my natural inclination to go smaller whenever possible!

  2. It looking good! That area where you have the triangular wedge of pieces between the two rows of goose track strips is nice and smooth looking.

  4. I see a fork in the road of flying geese. It's kind of like making the quilt - do I go right or do I go left. Fun to see your progress.

  8. Sandy has the perfect description in her comment - breakaway geese is a perfect description and I too love the effect this gives.

Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
