    Well, I was Steve last time I looked. Besides, if I were on vacation I'd be getting a lot more quilting done. Also Leslee works with me, and can verify I'm only one guy (thus far). If you'd like further proof I suppose I could send you a link to my Blog so you can peruse the writ, though I thought that a bit presumptuous to post on a quilting group.

    I went and looked up the pattern for flying geese. Unsure if and when I'll get to it, but like it. It doesn't look too hard but then again I've yet to try triangles. I figure to try triangles either on the next quilt or the one after. One step at a time...

    The piecing on this one was by hand, but I just wanted the experience of hand quilting, which I turned out liking a lot. Itís frustrating at times, but the top feels fantastic. Hopefully Iíll get the borders done in the next day or so. Iím just running a line along the borders and leaving the outer edge to turn. Leslee says that if I double it (the binding) by rolling it over, it will be more durable in the long run. The only thing that has me worried now is the mitering of the corners, but figure what the hey, itís just another thing to learn.

    Oh, and I figured another thing out. My machine is a smaller Janome (Quilterís Dream) without an extended table. What Iím going to do is set it on my kitchen table and stack up my two butcher-block cutting boards that I use for dough (after scrubbing) left of the machine to raise up the piece Iím working on. It should give me an extra two feet of support. Cool beans. Where thereís a will thereís a way!

    Way to go, Kathy!!! Great question about the geese. Everybody here knows Tim would have written volumes about the "%&#@@%#" geese, so y'know the answer had to come from Steve!!! :lol:

    Yeah but, there is still one more way to be sure. Demand to see if he has a missing toe. If they are all there,then we know for certain that its not Tim in disguise! :lol:

    except i finally caved in and gave back the stupid toe. if "Steve" posts a picture of his feet, make sure all 10 toes are a nice, healthy pink - with no stitch scars.

    :wink:

    Well, Steve can't be Tim because he likes flying geese. Tim would never say that. Plus, he has not taken a swing at Patrice yet. Is it possible that there ARE two men that are brave enough to hang out with this many women???? :lol:

    I understanding the quilting fetish but eew, you lost me with the toes.

    So tell me more about flying geese, I saw several pics. On google which were all relatively different but did for the most part take on the formation of geese in flight. I don't really know for instance why it wasn't called say, flying ducks? Any good links to the pattern, and who here has done a quilt with the pattern? Is it particularly difficult?

    Oh yeah Norah it isn't bravery, for me anyway, just a thirst for knowledge; and if women then just happen to know the answers, so be it. Itís funny how home cooking use to be considered primarily a womenís domain, but now most of the women I know tend to ask me the cooking questions.

    Isn't it great getting the little ones involved....I have always let my kids pick the outfits and colors they liked...got a few stares and shaking heads when they would see I was asking a 9 month old :roll: ....but they didn't have to put up with the fussing and trying to get the outfit off they would do when it was one they didn't like. :D Cant wait to see the quilt the little one picked. You go Steve. 8)

    I'm planning that one in my head. I'll need to go get additional fabric to fit the quarters (oh dear) but look forward to the day I give it to him.

    I remember everytime, as a child, I was around quilting, the colors, small pieces and quiet stitching made quite an impression.
