    The colors you have picked are very pretty together. What ever you decide in doing, the quilt is going to be beautiful.
    :lol: The fabric store is called Carter's. It is on S. Tate ST. and is really old..been there forever I'm told. We just moved to Middleton, TN. a few yrs. ago. I'm pretty sure its open everyday, but you know stores in the South...you might want to call....(662) 287-6278 Have fun at the wedding!

    Thanks. I don't remember Carter's. But this doesn't mean anything. I'm having been tring to remember the name of the fabric store I use while in Corinth. All I can remember is the son's name was Tommy. :-) He was cute.

    There used to be a Hancock's there (I assume since I saw their sign on an empty building). Carter's sells mostly upholstery fabric, cut they do a section of cotton for quilting. Its not great believe me...but it is only 20 minutes from our house and the better quilt store is in Jackson, TN...an hour away.

    Best to finish the way you started your FG. Eleanors rulers make geese that are 1 1/2 X 3, 3x6,2x4,and 4x8.
    FG are used in so many different blocks that you really need a good method that makes them perfect and hers is the best. I have tried others and they just dont turn out as good. Of course paper pieceing is perfect but I really dont care for it except for blocks that are not good for piecework. Y seams are better to paper piece.

    I found the formula for Burns method.
    The length of the goose is always twice the width.
    If you want a goose that is 3x6 you take the long measure which is 6 and add 1 1/2 inchs to get 7 1/2. this is the size of the small square, add another 1 1/2 to get 9 inchs. that is the large square. The large square is the two points of the goose background. For all sizes you just add the 1 1/2 inches.

    I have watched all the shows on QNN for Eleanor and Fons and Porter.
    Boy have I learned alot. I notice that El dosnt always give the details every time for some steps. One of them is when you place the small block over the large one check the stretch of the fabric and make sure both squares have the stretch in the same direction.
