Filling in the spaces

I'm trying to work on this in a logical way now, rather than adding bits randomly all over the place (not that I ever work like that). So I'm going to fill in the little gap top left and the bigger bit on the bottom left next and then worry about what happens over on the other side.
This is where it's got me to.
It's slow work, doing the geese this way, but it seems to be working, so that's okay.  I don't really know what I'm doing next, either in this funny shaped bit on the left or over on the other side, but I'm hoping inspiration will strike while I mow the lawn.

Linking up with Linda and Julie for sew stitch snap SHARE

My first thought when I saw your picture this morning was a windmill or fan blades in motion.

Inspiration can definitely strike while you are doing something else. I hope mowing the lawn was just the ticket you needed for the next burst of inspiration.

Are you aiming to create a curved piece or one with squarish sides? I like what you're doing but clearly I can't tell where you're going next!

Your fill in looks wonderful! I would mow the grass, but it snowed today so if the snow has melted then it is probably too wet and it is only 39 degrees. I see it is 75 in Hereford - yes, I check the weather there.

I think it should go straight on both ends in the same random fashion of other bits. stop when it is done. LOL

Enjoy this quilting journey as I am ..let it take you where it wants to go...love how this is developing...hugs, Julierose

I like where this is going ...., I find inspiration never strikes when I mow the lawn, however I tend to pay myself for doing it a a fabric or book order online. Thanks for linking to Sew Stitch Snap, SHARE.

I may have missed your mentioning what this is going to be, but this looks as if could make a and really striking interesting S shaped wall hanging?
One of the things I adore about your methods is the way designs emerge, like following a footpath and striking off the beaten track on a spontaneous whim.
And also that you dont have that Quilt Police mentality where all lines should be straight on pain of humiliation LOL - allowing a fluid movement on seams and here, wonderful fabulous bendy edges

This is such an interesting piece. You really take us on a journey with your process and I love that!

How nice that you have lawn to mow. Mine is still under the snow. Very nice progress on this lovely quilt.

It's been interesting to watch you progress with this quilt, Kaja. I especially like the touches of dark red/cranberry mixed in and the fabric with birds' names on it. Great fabric to go with those geese!

Good lighting for your photos. I like the contrast between darks and lights and the
blues and yellows.
Lots of movement going on too.

I think I must be losing the plot Kaja - I was sure I had left a comment on your beautiful 'quilt in progress' and the beautiful geese going off in different directions partway through their flight. Love them.
