    Well, I got the Zigzag geese done already and laid it all out on the floor. I have not cut the last border yet. I will wait until I get it all put together to make sure of the size. Also, if the size of the quilt doesn't work the way I want, they say to make it a king, just add the flying geese borders to the sides as well, so I will measure as I go.
    The border is the one print I let her pick and the fabrics were all pulled from it. I was worried about it only being in two of the blocks, so I incorporated is as the main fabric in the zigzag geese. Now it flows better.
    I laid it out on the floor, took a long time to get it all out, took several pictures and she called and said, I will be at your place in just a minute. Her brother was visiting one of my neighbors. I never scooped up quilt pieces so fast! I let her see the blocks when they were done, the 9 center blocks separately, but will not let them see the quilt until the wedding. Just gave her a teaser with the blocks!

    All set out, ready to sew together...

    Very beautiful! A much more ambitious project than I'd be comfortable doing!

    I bought this pattern. Fell in love with it the minute I saw it. Just went to look for my copy and I can't find it. Always annoys me when I do that. Now I won't rest until I find it. If I just put things where they belong.....

    Beautiful, careful work. I saw this made up at LQS and considered buying it, but didn't. I had too many other projects going at the same time. It's nice for a wedding gift because the fabric makes it modern, but the pattern makes it traditional.

    This quilt is stupendous. It is just so outstanding in fabric and design. You should be proud of a job well done. You’re on the home stretch. It will be a cherished gift.
