    Cajun's Flying Geese in Waiting!

    Okay I've finally finished my Flying Geese. I have never had problems with these but somehow I did on these. Could be my mind was somewhere else; or I want the Flying Geese Rulers so might just be I want an excuse to buy them! lol

    Like I really need new rulers! I have a 6-tier skirt hanger behind the door in my sewing room with all my rulers attached there! Went looking for the round belt hangers couldn't find them so thought hey this skirt hanger is great! It works for me at any rate.

    Hugs,
    Cajun

    AnngelAnne: I knew it would look great, and it does. Well done.

    I started cutting my step 4 last night. Didn't get too far but still plan to have it done in time for the final leg of our train trip.
    You have so much fun!!! I miss the kids coming to the house, but they don't trick or treat here any longer. It is much safer for the kids, but I do miss seeing them.

    Sadiemae,

    I think the parents enjoy the display as much as the kids do, or more. 10-12 year old boys just LOOOVE the screaming witch mat. In our neighbourhood we see parents walking with their kids and watching from the curb. At our house, they come right up with the kids. A lot of times I hear the everyone oohing and aahing quite a bit before they ring the doorbell.

    And quilte, it's one bar per kid or how would I end up with leftovers for myself? lol

    I think I need to work on some geese after work.

    You do it exactly the same here. When you post a reply "click on Go ADvanced". Just the same.

    cajun: your geese are so colorful!!

    I'm very excited. I will be quilting from Wed thru Sunday next week with 2 BFF quilting buddies at our "1st Private Quilt Retreat" (at my friend's condo in Lompoc, Central Coast of California). I plan to work on this Mystery Train, a quilt for my swap partner, and boomerang swap blocks. Hoping to get a lot accomplished!!

    I LOVE Lompoc!! I was raised in Santa Barbara and use to drive up to Lompoc alot. My nephew and his new bride bought a house in Lompoc and he has a business there, West Coast Pool & Spa. It is so beautiful there during the poppy season! I hope you all have lots of fun.

    Hurrah, Hurrah, here is step three, moving right along. Now those pesky geese are next. As I have never done geese before, this should prove to be interesting.

    Yes we will!! In fact, I attend 3-4 "brown bag retreats" held at the Creation Station every year!!! The friend I am staying with is the "hostess with the mostest" for those retreats. She and I have been friends for more than 30 years. We decided since my bff from Redding and I couldn't get into the April brown bag retreat, we'd have a private one of our own!!! Hoping to hit both the Creation Station and the quilt shop in Orcutt on this trip for a bit of shopping, since we will be there more days than usual!!

    So where are you from??

    nursebonnie: I too love the Central Coast. I went to Cal Poly, as did my husband and our DD and SIL. We always wanted to retire up there---but now that granbabies are here don't want to be so far away, or in an area where it is costly to fly!!

    Anngelanne and KSellers: love your Mystery Trains so far. I still need to finish step 2 and 3!!

    paintme judy, some are not using the same fabric for the geese as the center star,that is what I am planning as I misjudged my fabric, I am going big, so for the outcome will that be pleasing or should I try and get more fabric?

    Paintmejudy, I'm planning to make a larger quilt for mine. I was wondering how are we going to put these blocks together? I guess the better question is do I need to make some adjustments now???

    Materialgirl, It shouldn't be a problem to use whatever fabric you have. It will look great no matter which way you do your geese.

    Karen, my daughter went to Cal Poly too. I love SLO. she lived there for 6 years, even after she graduated she hated to move away. Now she lives outside of Seattle and I try to get up to see her a few times a year. I don't know what Grandma's did before the computer age! I hate being so far away but really love Skype.

    Cajun, I love your colors, makes me hungry for sherbert Ice Cream!

    My geese are still not flying, but should be ready for take off tomorrow... I am working on Halloween blocks for Wacky Swap. I love making these blocks!

    And can you believe it we have More SNOW... where is spring?
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I have only done one block so far, as I'm not sure if I should put a strip around all the blocks, or connect the block to another block's strip. I guess it might be one of those things that I just have to wait and see, as I'm not sure how the flying geese will fit in either. I understand your mystery quilt is just the small one, I just wondered if I could go ahead and work on my other blocks, or just wait. But when you post on Monday, if you have an idea on making it larger, could you please let us in on those ideas? Thanks -- this has been a very fun experience. Kathy

    All will be revealed on Monday! No hints today, sorry.

    Sunlite and Wizard, and everyone, hope your geese will appreciate their destination. See you in the morning!
