    Now THAT never occurred to me. I never even thought about a problem with the pattern. I just assumed it was me. I will really go over this when I get home.

    Thank you all so much for your input.

    I'll let you know how it works out.

    I've seen this quilt finished in person at a local shop. I too would love to do this one. The one I saw was a 2 color top.

    When my LQS went out of business, I bought some gorgeous Christmas fabrics - traditional colors - red & green batiks, a gorgeous christmas print and a wonderful shimmery neutral. I can picture this quilt in my head and I'm practically driven to make it in those fabrics.

    I'll figure it out and make it work, believe me. I'm one determined quilter.

    Agreed. Sounds like the pattern may be off. The pattern I have for this I got from the great American Quilts book for 2000 or 2001 can't remember which. It has templates. I have not actually attempted any tests of the templates.

    OP, if your pattern is also templates, I recommend tracing them out and then cutting them out without seam allowances and then lay them out like a jigsaw puzzle to ensure they fit together. If they do not then you know the problem is with the pattern and not your piecing and you will have to redraft the pattern or find another source for it. If they do fit together properly, I'm not sure what to tell you as it sounds like all your piecing is in order.

    I do know one of our board members did make this pattern. here is a link to his pictures. Not sure where he got his pattern from so I do know there are good patterns out there.

    You could try PMing Don (Isewman) to see if he had the same problems.

    Welcome from Ohio. That's a beautiful quilt to tackle. I think it's on the high end of intermediate. Let us know when you figure out what's going on with the pattern. Also, what book did it come from? I looked at the links provided, but it lists many books. See, you've started something here. LOL

    Hi! I'm the blogger whose blog QuiltnNan linked to, and I had an amazing number of visits from this board as a result of her post! I hope my link to the book on Amazon containing the pattern for the Dizzy Geese quilt I'd photographed proved helpful, and that everyone enjoyed their visit.

    I just stopped by today to let you know that our library held its annual quilt show again last month, and I just posted the first in a series of four (or more?) posts about it. I think our local quilters outdid themselves this year, and thought you all might enjoy seeing the fruits of their labors. No Dizzy Geese quilts in this year's exhibit, but Part 2, which I'll post early next week, will have a pretty Flying Geese quilt photo!

    I'm not a quilter, but I am a real admirer of quilts and am in awe of all of you who create such beautiful pieces of art. Enjoy a cozy winter of quilting!

    OMG that quilt is amazing. Flying geese are hard by themselves. Good luck. Looks like some good help here.

    Whoa, the quilt on laloofa's blog is a knock-out. (Thanks for the link to the book.) isewman's is 100% different with the white background. It IS easier to see the assembly on the white one.

    I would say that it's probably paper pieced too. But as much as I love to pp, I'm not sure I would want to try it.
