The 30th Anniversary Quilt Alliance BOM - Month 6 Designed by Andrea Tsang Jackson
From the Quilt Alliance, "Last month, we practiced accuracy with a no-waste method for making flying geese. We’ll be building on that skill this month as we create smaller flying geese units for this block with a meaningful story. Inspired by her personal journey of starting to quilt by flying solo, before joining a gaggle of quilters in a guild, our designer for this month is the skilled artist and designer Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop."

What is the 30th Anniversary Quilt Alliance Block Of the Month?:
"From April to December 2023 we’ll be sharing one block a month with Quilt Alliance members and donors. Each of these designers has participated in a Quilt Alliance oral history project, so we’ll be sharing quilt stories and nine great blocks to celebrate our 30th year!"
More Info about Month 6 from Andrea Tsang Jackson and the Quilt Alliance:
"When I started quilting, I designed my own first quilt and used YouTube tutorials to figure out how to put it all together. A few years into my quilting journey, I joined a guild and it opened up a whole new world! I flew solo at first, but now I can't image flying without my gaggle. This design uses eight flying geese — one flying solo, and the other seven in formation. The overall composition suggests an arrow moving forward."
