    Thsi quilt was machine pieced by me and quilted by a ondarm quilter. The fabric are batiks. The pattern is called "Doing the Twist". It was easy and fun. It gave me a lesson on placing color.

    I really like that a lot - I'll have to look in to that one. Yours came out absolutely beautiful!

    Okay... I'm searching and not finding that quilt pattern... I think I need a road map.

    The publisher of Cutting Corners is Martingale in 2003. If it is out of print, you may look on Amazon for used books. The pattern is called Flying Geese Fishing quilt. The Geese are on the diagonal and you must cut straight of grain for the corners and edges to avoid sagging.
    I will look on Amazon for you.
