Blue and Gray Sampler: Block 2
The second of my blocks for the Blue and Gray Sampler is Louisiana. Not sure where or why it came to have that name, but it's fairly easy to cut and stitch together. If you look closely, there are Flying Geese (green) with two different sky patches (red and cream).

I am working with Windham's Uncorked Collection and I just didn't want a boring cream for the background. I chose a light pink and I hope I will have enough to make all my blocks. If not . . .

Cut the following:
- Four 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" pink (or other light of your choice)
- One 7-1/4" square green; cut along both diagonals for four "geese" patches
- Two 3-7/8" squares pink; cut along one diagonal for four "sky" patches
- Two 3-7/8" squares purple; cut along one diagonal for four "sky" patches
