On May 1st I set my goal, to finish my addition to a round robin block. This is where I stood at the beginning of the month.

I bought more yardage at my LQS.
I bought more fabric on my way to NC.
In the end, I think I have enough fabric for a whole 'nother quilt!
My original idea was to repeat the drunkard's path blocks in my round. I first tried using my Strips and Curves templates, but the size wasn't right and I wasn't ending up with sufficient seam allowance. I then purchased a circle tool designed for this purpose.

Then I remembered a technique I learned at the Pigeon Forge show.
Cindy Williams (a/k/a the Math Whisperer) improved on a shortcut piecing technique for flying geese to be put into a staggered strip.
So, here is the result.
