Convergence . Red White and Blue for an AUSSIE HERO.

Using up my birthday fat quarters and continuing on with my Convergence quilt.
This is where I am at.
I can see it in my head but getting it where I want it is another thing...
Oh boy. All those flying geese are taking forever. Paper foundation piecing has its place but this is a lot of work.

I have had a play and need to make this block longer to make the size required.
This quilt needs to be around 42" x 72"
The original block was not square. It was about an inch off.
So I had to think of some way to make it longer.
First up I thought to add a row top and bottom BUT I was in a workshop the other weekend and throwing around ideas it was suggested to only add rows to the bottom.
So here goes.

So far I'm happy with where it is going.

What a stunning quilt, I love the geese around the main block, the rows you have planned look fantastic.
Can’t wait to see the finished top
