    You're welcome, everrose, I loved doing it. And I think what you are doing with your top and those little triangels is supurb! Waste not, want not, as me ole granny used to say.

    Just got home from a shop hop with my Quiltin buddies. I found the Eleanor Burns Flying Geese template. So now I am ready do do a lot of geese~

    Thank you Judy this has been so much fun. I will be sure to check out your next mystery tour. I will be a bit late joining the group as My nieces' wedding is the 11th~ Now I am making the maid of honor's dress too! It is a good cause I keep telling myself!

    I will post pictures when I get my top done, soon, very soon!

    I just love the pictures so far! Very nice quilts ladies!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    will post when finished and see you on the 9th
    I was reading this thread while sipping my morning coffee in the club car when I realized I must have missed the final stop yesterday!! I must have slept through it or something. I thought the last stop was on the 19th for some reason (or I might have the date mixed up with another project). Sometimes I do get my days mixed up now that we are retired and everyday is a Saturday as my DH likes to say!!

    Not to worry I'll be getting off the train today and heading to my BFF Private Quilt Retreat so I should be able to catch up there!

    So I don't miss the new mystery train, does the new train leave the station on May 9th??? Is that the day we will know the fabric requirements ?? See you in the club car then!

    PS the reveal is so pretty and the finished ones looked great!

    During Hurricane Katrina there were many folks that sayed in in Central Louisiana. There was a family that stayed in a vacant house next door to my son and dil. The lady told me she owned a quilt shop in New Orleans but would move back home up north somewhere. Last week my granddaughter moved into that house as it had been vacant since the lady with quilt shop moved out..she found a Singer sewing machine in a cabinet. Landlord told her it was hers if she wanted it as we have no way of contacting the owner. Well dgd, Danielle wants to learn to sew so she was excited. Her hubby lost his job and the owners of this house just told them to clean it up and no rent for them and utilities are still own. So it really helped them.

    I am excited because I want to see that machine. I know Danielle she is never going to sew! lol But I'll have to go over and clean it up and show her how to use it. I'll take a photo and show ya'll!

    Hugs,
    Betty

    Okay this is scary!!! I deleted pictures and they still show. Oh my, time for a break. It must be 5:00 p.m. somewhere.

    Oh by the way, I have lots of "goodies" from the bacc show. So while we wait for May 9th, I'm sure they will let us use the club car again (we can even share with conductors).

    Take care.

    Hey I just finished a UFO. WOW!!! I'm getting there. However, the UFO's have multiplied again downstairs. And I haven't finished sorting.

    Yes that's the bacc show. Left to right - Colin (boyfriend), my awesome daughter Meg, me, and hubby, Kris. In wheelchair is my mom. Can't wait to send this picture to SIL's. They were there from Michigan but didn't have their camera. After 6 years, Meg has an art degree and we are so proud of her. Okay, I'm done. Back to quilting. Darn, Mom wants supper now. I was on a roll.

    Sunliten, what is "empty spools"?

    THANK YOU!!! My goal this year is to send an attachment - very "small" minded when it comes to these gadgets. But i learned how to attach a picture - (light bulb) could it be the same? World watch out now.

    Well i am up late again tonight! I was totally excited about getting my new Geese template and I made 16 geese so fast my head was spinning!

    I just get a little too excited sometimes and don't take time to think! I really liked the idea of using the black and white for my geese rather than the turquoise. So i was quite amazed when my beautiful perfect geese did not fit! I looked at everything again and nope didn't reach the end. Soooo I decided to go back to the lesson on making the geese, and wouldn't ya just know it I made the wrong size geese.

    I pressed them flat and just looked at it for a while, my husband looked at it, he suggested that I hide my error by bringing out the last color an inch to cover to the end. I decided to embrace my error and add 1 inch of color!

    So what do you think? Do I need to take it apart and start stitch pickin', or Embrace my individuality???

    wow that is sooooooooooo pretty.............great solution and looks planned that way because the strips match the star.
    that is an exciting version of the block! I think a black and white block needs to be on my bucket list.

    I wonder how many blocks have been "created" over the years just this same way...something was sewn to fit the block when it didn't come out as planned? You did good!!!

    I love your mistake. I looked at it for a few minutes wondering where it was.

    Good solution, Marytodd. Your square looks great. I love the creativity in fitting it all together, so many different ways you all are finishing your squares. Keep 'em comin'! Love to see them.

    And Sunlite, yes, the black and white is great, isn't it? I have a black and white quilt (nine 12" blocks, about a dozen or more different patterns of b/w fabrics and all nine blocks are different patterns) hanging in the hall, and all I added was red sashing. Looks great.

    marytoddliz - That looks fabulous. I was admiring the photo and your creativity in adding a turquoise line before I read your post. No one would have known it was a mistake if you hadn't told us.

    Kudos to hubby for the idea and nicely executed.

    Marytodd that is a great design.. If you don't tell anyone (else) about the 'change', no one will ever know. That was a great solution. Don't you just love that 'goose' template? I made a bazillion geese using the template, they're for a quilt for my DGD. NOW I look for patterns so I can use it..lolo
