I emailed Bonnie right away and asked if the black and white fabrics in the flying geese were going to be "touching" the black n' white fabrics in the four patches. She would not commit to telling me except to say that all of her black and whites throughout the quilt are scrappy and scrambled and that's why it's a mystery. She also hoped it answered my question. (No, it didn't.) -and since it was pouring rain here and a trip to the fabric store was out of the question at the time, I went shopping on Ebay and found some different black n' white fabrics. So, I'm good (I think.)
I love shopping for fabric on Ebay! I have found some Ebay fabric shops with fabrics I never see here locally. I like to support local fabric shops---but, hey, the budget loves $1.50 or less fat quarters of really unique black n' white fabrics too.
I did find three more small pieces of black and white fabric in my stash that once cut up may possibly work if they don't need to be to close to the previous four patch black n' whites squares. Amazing what you can find when your in need of a particular color.
No, I'm not whining. Although I am a bit worried about not having a large variety of black n' white fabrics at this time (like Bonnie does)---and it still remains a mystery if they are going to be next to what I already have sewn.
Oh, and there is more black n' white fabrics needed for step three. Remind me again why I did this.......oh yes, to reduce my stash, and buy more fabric! :o)

Here are some of my new Black n' White fat quarters that are on the way to use in the flying geese and beyond. I'm stash building again! :o)
