    Your quilt is beautiful!!!!! The flying geese look great paper pieced.
    I think either way will look good, but I personally prefer the vertical continuous strip of the geese. And, if you lay it out you can prevent a goose from getting whacked in the middle by piecing a small strip at the top and bottom of the row of 'em.

    Thanks for the input...I think I'll try "building" a row horizontally to see how I like that before I take apart the longer vertical FG block that I've made. Since the FG are in 1" vertical increments, it will be easy to match them to the exact block size.

    Thanks for all the other tips. I plan to rethink the layout (direction) of all the heart blocks and may alternate 1 right side up and the next upside down...the quilt wear issue is a good thought.

    I appreciate the PP tips too. It seems that the rest of my family doesn't appreciate my new words :roll: ...but they sure seem to help in certain situations :oops:

    Have you tried Eleanor Burns method for flying geese? So easy and they turn out perfect every time. No paper to tear off.

    No and don't know what it is..so now you have me curious and I'll have to google it to find out. I obviously have lots & lots of geese to do. I'm having fun with the PP. I guess since I haven't gotten to the tearing off stage yet I just don't know what I've gotten myself into?? Oh well...probably just add yet a few more new words..LOL! :lol:

    I know you are not ready for quilting just yet.......but if by chance you intend to stitch in the ditch...... go down one side first from the point down diagonally to the bottom left corner then right to the next point, this gives you a continual line, then do the same down the other side in a zigzag! :D :D

    Thanks Izy, thats a good tip. I hadn't thought quite that far ahead about the FG. Actually, I'm still thinking about how I want to quilt all that nice open space between the pinwheels and heart blocks. Can't wait for that part, its my favorite!

    Definitely going to be a dramatic beautiful quilt!

    I love the background fabric! Is it a batik?

    I like both FG samples, so I'm not much help.

    hugs, sue

    Thanks Sue, the background is more of a marbalized fabric, but batik would be beautiful :D and very expensive :shock:
