    Well, it continues on, so that must be a good thing. I got really frustrated with two of the steps (I had never done these two before), but sat down one day last week and decided that I was going to do them and get them done right. Well, I did!

    Here is a picture of the parts I have done as of now, except for a few that didn't fit into the picture. I have done all of the blocks and setting pieces. All I have left are the zigzag flying geese (working on them now, almost done) and the final borders, just strips, not pieced.

    Once I finish the geese, then I will bring them all upstairs and lay them on the floor as the design wall isn't big enough. I want to rearrange the blocks differently so that the shapes and fabrics in the blocks flow better to the eye for me. I will probably take it to quilt group and have them help me with the placement.

    It is feeling really good right now to be this far into the quilt top as my son's wedding is not until March of next year. I hope to have it pieced together within a few weeks and then of to the LA to discuss quilting patterns. Any thoughts on how you would quilt it???

    How it should look when done....I hope!

    Wow, you did good. I am also doing this project with the colors that are shown on the pattern. I am not even half way done and am not looking forward to the rest of it. I wasn't a big fan of the instructions included.

    Good luck with getting your quilt done by March. It is really beautiful.

    It looks great....!! I'm doing the same one, but got to the center block and got so frustrated with the Y seam blocks, I packed it up, and will get back to it on a rainy day.......
