    I'm sorry, but I looked very carefully and I could not find anything wrong. I guess you will just have to live with this beautiful quilt as is. :thumbup:

    Is that a little Boston in your avatar? He doesn't have much white on him, so I am wondering. I have a Boston that is almost all black, and there aren't many like that.

    Roll Tide!
    Yes! We have two sisters, the one in this pic, Rebs is mostly black. Her sister RubyDoo has much more white in her mask...

    We just love them!

    Can you post a photo of your actual quilt instead of the stock photo so we can see what you are having a problem with? As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words :) I'm sure someone here can give you some good helpful advice if we can see what's happening. I love the pattern. What is the name of it?

    My bad...I must have skipped a page and did not see the new pic. Looks like you got your good advice though regarding accurate seam allowances and careful pressing without stretching as well as easier and faster ways to make flying geese. I'm still not seeing prairie points in any of this though. I know sometimes the abbreviations we use are confusing. PP can be paper piecing or prairie points but they are definitely two distinctly different terms. I think your quilt is looking very cute!

    I think this is absolutely gorgeous and I can't see a thing wrong with it. I only hope after another couple of years of trying I can make something as pretty.

    The name of the pattern is "Chubby Chicks" and it is a Black Mountain pattern that I purchased as a kit from Connecting Threads.

    I have made a pinwheel quilt like yours without the chicks and it was fantastic. Made with 30's reproduction fabrics for my first great-niece. Here's the link to that quilt which explains very clearly how to do prairie points. It was my first try and it was very easy. TIP: I used Elmer's Glue, using a fine tip applicator, and lightly glued the prairie points since they overlap. The glue keeps them in place as you sew. The finished product was very professional looking and added some bling to my quilt.

    Your Chubby Chick Quilt is adorable. I love chickens too. I did not notice anything wrong with your triangles. Take a bow girl you haven't lost the points on any of them. I some times have problems with that. I just love the chicks. Being a farm gal I did have some exposure to chicks. I really like the green you used. Don't change anything. It is sweet the way it is.

    sorry, I can't see passed how adorable this chubby little chick quilt is. Some times me thinks that when something turns out a certain way, regardless of what the pattern says, it's the way it was suppose to look. And yours is adorable.

    I have that pattern & just love it. I have had it for about 6 mo now & still haven't made it tho. You did a wonderful job! You have given me incentive to start mine!

    By the way I have been a member of this board for several months & this is my first time to post a comment. I took a quilting course about 8 yrs ago & immed went to work so am just now taking up the thing I love again. I've made 3 lap quilts so far, but need to quilt them. I retired about 2 yrs ago & am trying to get back into the groove. Love this site!

    Your first comment!!! How cool is that! I am new to this, started about 3-4 months ago. So far I have learned from mistakes, internet videos, and this great forum.

    I got some great advice in this thread...if I was starting over I would definitely paper piece the Flying Geese or choose an alternate border...

    Please post a pic when you finish yours!
