    Alright, it's definitely not perfect, but it is DONE! I had to try out my new sewing machine and hastily put this together, but it is finished and that's an accomplishment with a full-time job and an 18-month-old. Other than quilting a 2-fabric sandwich and piecing a lot of UFO's, this is my first completed pieced and quilting project. Whew!

    black white pink and finished

    Very well done. The colors really pop. I've only done a few flying geese and mine didn't look nearly as good as yours do.

    Great job. You deserve a medal for doing such a great job while living with an 18 month old.

    Hello Rosemary,don't worry about perfection, your work is art ,and it's unique,there won't be another that is exactly the same in the world -- what an achievement ! I can't remember who first said it but I have often quoted it to people I have introduced to patchwork over the years,'' If you can ride a bicycle past your work and see the mistakes--then unpick them!
    My quilts and wall hangings have many errors, but hey, I'm still working on perfection---the Lord will know when I'm ready. Love Letty.
