    Love it! I made one too but mine is queen size. It is definately not a beginner block. Yuo have to be so careful sewing the center block together or you could end up with an "A" cup. The pattern is from "The Big Book of Scrap Quilts". I made mine using a beige batik and lots of dark batiks and FQ's for the stars and geese. It was a chalenge for sure. You did a great job! You should be proud.

    It is beautiful and I would love to have the pattern. What was it you disliked so much? A friend of mine hates triangles and tries hard never to use them. Is yours the same?

    Well, it is absolutely beautiful, but I can imagine the stress of making all those flying geese. If you ever make another quilt for an order....you'll know you have to add a good amount of money as a stress factor!

    I know they were a pain, but the geese in a circle are quite stunning! What a great way to spruce up a quilt with flying geese!

    I don't mind making flying geese, a few anyway but it seems to me some bright person should be able figure out how to turn out scads of flying geese without doing them 2 by two or 4 by.

    I think your work is lovely but I don't know anyone who actually makes enough money to cover their time when it comes to quilt making. Maybe art quilters and exquisitly detailed traditional quilt artists but for the most part I think we create works of art because we are compelled through our love of fabric and driven to try the next step.

    I REALLY HATE TO DO TWO QUILTS JUST ALIKE. I get soooo bored and tired of working on them I can't wait to finish. Your skill and craftsmanship shine through this quilt.

    OMG I love it, seeing your quilt inspired me to hunt down a copy of the pattern book on ebay and of course I bought it!! Thank you for posting the picture. I've been planning to do a quilt with a lot of flying geese and this one fits the bill.

    It is so pretty and I love the colors.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I'm still finishing step two of Bonnie's Easy Street...the step with the flying geese and I HATE doing flying geese. That said, I understand your comments but your quilt is absolutely huggable!! I love the loft. Did you use a poly batting or ?? And the pattern is lovely. Really good job and would love to know about the batting. I want a quilt that's fluffy like that tho others say it's a real headache to quilt on dsm.
