    It's a win-win! Your fur babies are well taken care of and your neighbors get a great looking quilt! Love the scale of the sunflowers. Not overpowering, just right, IMHO only. :D

    Pretty quilt.
    I have made several quilts (5 or 6) for friends, usually college age, who come take care of our critters.

    I really like that. I have never tried flying geese and I did buy 2 of the rulers last summer, so now I have some inspiration to go for it! Good job

    I love constructing flying geese, but I think I would have been loco by the time I finished all of those. :lol: Beautiful quilt. Love the color combination.
