Simple Sets for #27 Donald and #28 Daisy

I spent yesterday afternoon raking snow off my garage roof and decided to kick back and design on the computer last night to give my back a much needed rest.  For those of you who live in states south of Minnesota, we have things called “ice dams” and “roof rakes”, things I never heard of when I lived in Iowa.  When I ran a few errands afterwards I discovered I wasn’t the only one engaged in this activity yesterday! I only worked on the front of the garage and now today I will tackle the back before the next snow storm hits on Thursday!

Back to quilting!  I decided to play a little with the Donald and Daisy blocks and put them in some very simple sets to give you an idea of what they would look like.

#27 Donald


#28 Daisy

28 Daisy

Donald and Daisy set together, alternating every other block in each row and from row to row.  They look good together, the Deli Geese frames flow from one block to the other very nicely.

The image below shows Donald and Daisy with a narrow sashing between.

Now for Donald all by itself; a fun secondary design is emerging and it’s almost hard to see what the block was to begin with!

Below I’m taking the Donald block and adding a black sashing. What fun!

Daisy on it’s own. Lots of light area that would lend itself to some custom quilting.

And now Daisy with sashing in the same fabric as the Deli Geese portion of the block.

I love all these options and hope they will inspire you to try out these fun blocks!

These blocks as well as many others in the Deli Geese Block Project use 5″ squares.  They are great blocks for charm packs, layer cakes, and of course stash fabrics.

Deli Geese, because they’re sliced !
