    This ia a queen sized quilt made for my son. It took me forever and I quilted it myself. Never again!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My arms were so sore. I quilted in the ditch on the top and crosshatched the borders. Love the pattern and plan to make pinwheel lap quilt with the scraps.

    It's beautiful!!!
    My shoulders get sore too. You have to remember to not wear them as earring!!! Relax your shoulders, stretch up to your ears and then down low and try to leave them low. That's what my Massage Therapist tells me!!

    I am glad this is not just because I am new to this! LOL... I thought a cross hatch would be easy for my quilt for kids, I had to take a few days to rest because my arms were getting sooo sore!

    I like flying geese quilts and this one is really nice. I like the dark green border. Great job. What method did you use for doing the FG?

    Thanks to all of you for your compliments. You're all so sweet.
    Many mistakes and had to add more borders to get to queen size. (Will never quilt one that big again!)
    This pattern came out of a book called "Cutting Corners" by JoAnn Hanson. She calls the method Stitch and Trim which leave many small triangles that she also has patterns to use up scraps. You cut the squares, then mark and sew on the diagonal and trim. Some who took the class used the Eleanore Burns method. I haven't tried this yet but do have the ruler to do it. lol One gal did hers in all dots! What fun!
