flying geese circle block

In May, I used the method I call hack and whack and made this quilt.

Today I used the scraps to make a flying geese circle block. I found the tutorial online, and tried my hand at paper piecing.

While this little block turned out just as darling as I had hoped, I must admit that I prefer the hack and whack method. Love the paper pieced look, but also love the free look of more modern quilting. Still - can you just imagine a darling nine patch quilt made into a baby blanket - flying geese circle block for five of the nine squares? Sounds cute to me! Now I just need someone to give it to to inspire me to complete it.
