July Ima Bee Block #1

For this month's Ima Bee, the Queen Bee wanted a paper pieced Circle of Geese block using black for the outer background and light grey or white for the center, and bright colors for the geese.  Here's my first version, 12 1/2" square.  The black is a Robert Kaufman print, the center is Cloud9 for JoAnn, and the geese are Valorie Wells Nest (orange), Moda Oliver and S (pink), and Lizzy House Pearl Bracelet (yellow).  For my next version, I'm going to use a lighter center background to really make the geese pop!
