    For Me!!!!

    I was making a mini for the swap and it was all going VERY well.
    Well? Once I started looking at it more, it seemed it would be nicer on a table, soooooo.......I am keeping this and making a different mini quilt.
    I am finally keeping something for me! :) :) :)

    it for yourself. Once & awhile we
    just need to do that!!

    That is so pretty! And, yes, you should keep it for yourself. Why not, woman? Very lovely, thanks for sharing.

    Thanks!
    I just couldn't wrap my brain around it being a doll quilt. Plus the fact that I just absolutely fell in love with it.

    Terri - I love it! The more I look at it the more complex the pattern becomes with those little triangular corners on the outer squares and the inner border and oh well I don't know how to really explain it - it's kind of deceptively simple or deceptively complex - one of those! Anyway, I love it! :D

    Thanks!!!

    It was more or less a design I made up.
    The center square is 6 1/2 inches.
    Around the square are flying geese that are done the Ricky Timms method. I had actually had an idea of doing a flying geese mini, but couldn't get it to look right to me.
    So, I cut squares for the corners, sewed them to the flying geese, then to the center square. I liked how it looks like the center is just laying in there.
    Then I figured it needed a border, so cut 1 1/2 and put that on. Then I thought that it needed something else. Had no clue, so made more flying geese, they didn't look right. Did some regular triangles, didn't look right. Then I remembered I bought a book that had borders in it and found the border that you see with the little triangles. It's really easy to do. I screwed up on the cutting (it was about 5am at the time.)
    The squares are to be 3 inches with the smaller ones 2 1/2. Sew the smaller ones opposite each other, then cut off excess. and you have your new square. Then sew them together and there you go!
    Got that on and said..ok, it needs something else, so decided that I would use the striped fabric on the outside.
    So, there you have it.
    And no...I cannot do a tute on it because I'm really NOT sure of the sizes that I cut. All sizes are approximate. I didn't finish it until around 6:30am. Yes, I was up all night making it. Had tv on and just didn't realize the time. Guess I need a clock in my room, huh?

    I think 'make it up as you go along' designs are often the best! I have to try those RickyTimms FGs too! :D

    I love this pattern - did you design it. I think the squares with the triangles at opposite corners are interesting and look really neat in the overall design.

    Yes, I designed the pattern.
    I posted pretty much what I did, so ya'll can try to figure it out.
    The flying geese are from Ricky Timm's method and I think that's what gives it a certain look because the middle stands out a bit.
    The squares on the corners are just 3 inch squares, I think.
    I SITD around the corner squares, the middle squares, the middle border and that was it. Since it's for ME, I didn't really do much on it.

    I did notice that looking at it closer, I should have turned the bottom border the other way. Oh well.......

    It's a beauty! You are right to keep it for yourself! I love decorating for fall.

    I like decorating for fall best, then Christmas and then my snowmen collection comes out in January and by the time they melt away in March I am stumped as to how to decorate for the next six months!! This will be my first winter retired in the newly renovated house so I guess I will have to come up with something!!

    Enjoy your autumn table topper!

    Great, don't blame you at all for keeping that. Makes you think FALL, to go along with the cool evenings and mornings we are having.

    Looks nice. It definitely belongs on a table, rather than a doll quilt. I like it. :D
