OK. Here's what I started with today. I had my nine star blocks and 24 strips of flying geese sashing, which I arranged in (hopefully) pleasing color segues, following the quilt pattern that determines the direction of the flying geese. I took a picture at this point because I was afraid with all the sewing of pieces together, I might accidentally "rearrange" and lose the order I wanted them to be in. And that actually happened, so you might think of doing that yourself if you have a complicated quilting project like this.
Next was to make the 16 cornerstone blocks where the sashings come together. These required appliqueing a fussy cut flower circle in the middle of each block.
Finally it was time to assemble the star blocks with the flying geese sashing and the cornerstone blocks.
This has taken ALL day! Whew! I am definitely tired tonight. A huge salad with Tuscan Boule bread sounds like just the ticket! Good night all.
