“Horicon Marsh Flyway” by Claudia M

Horicon Marsh Flyway

Living in Dodge County, home of the Horicon Marsh helped to inspire me for this week's challenge thus the name Horicon Marsh Flyway.  I used the suggested Monkey wrench block in the center of my quilt to represent the marsh.

Additional blocks also known as a monkey wrench (or snail's trail) were used for the land and sky that the the flying geese use on their way north and south each year, passing through the marsh.  The flying geese are paper pieced and loosely attached on top of the blocks creating a 3D effect of the geese in flight.  Piece measures just under 13" square.
