    I agree it is beautiful. I for one would like to see a tutorial on how to make it. I was just ask a couple of days ago to make a heart quilt for our 2012 America Heart Walk for September. Had no idea what to make and think this would be great for the cause. Please Please do a tut.

    HI ANA...

    What a nice job you did with that. I'd have thought I'd died and gone to heaven if anyone ever made a quilt for one of my babies, all those many years ago. I really love the job you did. It sure is pretty, and looks like such a lot of work with those 2 1/2 inch squares. YIKES.

    Thanks for posting it so I got to see it. I have a blasted cold or something today. Stopped up and also drippy nose and sore throat. HATE THAT WHEN IT HAPPENS. Hope it doesn't get worse and affect the bad lungs.

    Enjoyed seeing the posting.

    VIckey S.

    This is graph paper.. my wonderful wonderful friend. I'm afraid of tiny things so I made 1 square = 1". So you can get your measurements by counting, and of course adding your 1/2". Then I popped a background strip all around. I squared this center piece up at 24"x24" (don't ask me why.. it's just that it was already really close to that size)

    The border around it FINISHED at 3/4" uhmm.. I'm not sure what size it was before.. 1.25? I think I cut it 1-1/2" and squared it down to 1" after I sewed it on, then of course that ate up another 1/4" when the geese were put on.

    For the geese, I made 3.5" squares of white and the colored fabrics. I sewed 1/4" on either side of the diagonal.. cut apart.. sew back together. They were finished size of 2.5"x5" and there is 12 per side. In order to get it to wrap like that, on 2 sides you leave off the bottom 2 geese.. Sew these to the end of the intersecting ends. 2 sideways geese is equal to the length of one forward goose. Because a goose is 1/2 the width in height.

    So then the border on the outside and between the geese and the "ribbon" top is 2" finished, so 2.5" strips. First I did the border between the geese and the ribbon border. Then after I got the ribbon border on I did the sides first, then the top/bottom with the final black border they are also 2" finished size. Mainly because I wanted to make sure I had enough to make one LONG border and not a pieced border. Success!

    Now the hard part. The ribbons. I did these wrong.. not sure if you can tell. well I did them right, but my math for them was wrong. Somewhere in the figuring out the sizes I ended up about 2" short. According to quilterscache.com which is where I got the pattern, you figure out the finished size of the block you want.. it's a HST with 2 QST. Then you make a square that's 7/8" bigger than the finished size.. cut it in half diagonally.. that's 2 of those blocks. Then you take another square of both the white and the darker color (the squares) and you make that 1-1/4" bigger than the finished block.. and you cut them diagonally both ways so you have 4 blocks out of those. Then you sew the QST.. the smaller triangles, to each other. Keep an eye on your bias, it's easy to get lost. To make sure I didn't repeatedly sew them the wrong way, I kept my dark color on top of my white, and I put my 90degree corner towards my needle. So the long edge of the triangle was facing toward me and to the left. Press those open, and then sew them to the HST. Then you have to line these up alternatingly so that it forms the squares and ribbons. I had to lay them out and pick them up 2 at a time.

    So I think I did my math wrong on my finished size expectation cause I cut it accordingly but ended up short so I cut some 2" bars and stuffed them on the end that was a ribbon and not a square. If that made sense. Look close, you'll see it.
    The link for the instructions for that is here : http://www.quilterscache.com/P/PyramidBorder.html

    If you have any questions I'll be glad to help.

    So on the back, I did actually do 2 borders but the second border basically was just the right size to be binding for both sides and not much bigger.
