Tokyo Triangle/ Geese in the Forest: Progress

I have been picking up old projects and trying to make some progress on them. Back in November of last year(!), I decided to start the Tokyo Triangles quilt I kept seeing around. So I started sewing and sewing, until I had around 250 geese made. I then started sewing these little geese into sections of three.

This past spring, twiddletails started a block of the month for a geese in the forest quilt based on the tokyo triangle quilt. Here is March's Friendly Flock below.


May's block "Friendly Formation" is here!
I may use some of my groupings of three to finish up April's block since they are the correct size and all I will need to do is add sides. Paper piecing is easier than I thought it would be, but these take forever to make! I don't know how I will combine all of these blocks quite yet, but I am excited about how they will look together. I am using up scraps and bought the cream to work on this project.

I can't even fathom the patience it takes to quilt! I know I certainly don't have it. Looks fabulous.
