    My Geese at the Cabin is leaving home

    I posted this quilt during its progress to completion. It was so much fun and I am so happy with it. Hence it's position as my current avatar. But I knew when I made it that it would be going to its forever home this summer. And now I have to say goodbye - though I know my sister and her partner will be happy to have it at their house. Eileen turned 50 in July, Chris will in September - and our family reunion starts this weekend. Must be gifting time.
    When I originally posted the final result - after 2 months of hand quilting - I received many favorable reviews from all of you.
    One last look....... parting is such sweet sorrow. ( somebody said that somewhere)

    That's a beautiful quilt. Wish my geese would turn out as good as yours. I'm sure your sister and partner will love it.

    It is hard to part with some quilts. Take comfort that your beauty is going to a good home and you can visit her from time to time. You can also pull up your photos on QB and admire her. She is gorgeous!

    This is so very pretty! You are so inspiring, I might have to make something similar someday. I love geese and log cabins! Great job!

    It's hard to see our babies grow up and leave home! What a beautiful quilt. You'll just have to see what you can create to top it.
