Let's fill the area of fabric B with more geese. Since these geese are not reconstructed but are simply suggested by the quilting, I will call them “shadow geese”.
By quilting these patterns, I take advantage of the fact that our eyes love to pick up patterns. These “shadow geese” will move our eyes across the quilt. We'll make them even more beautiful next month by adding free motion! Note that I also added linear elements to the background area of fabric B, but not to the area of fabric A. I am deliberately creating contrast between the two sides of the quilt.

We're not done yet, but we're getting very, very close. Next month, it's time for free-motion, and you don't need to be an expert to create contrast with the geometric patterns we've quilted so far!

Happy quilting to you all!
