    The points on the stars are proving difficult for me! This is my second attempt... still not just right!

    The plaid pieced flying geese is my favorite, even tho it isn't just right either... Oh well...

    Guess I'll stop aiming for perfection and just have fun from now on.. looks like some child made them, doesn't it? Well, I'm in my 2nd childhood already..

    I agree with the 2nd childhood! Thanks for posting your pics. I have a quilt guild challenge using a plaid shirt. I may do something similar to your flying geese quilt.

    They are both adorable! The stars look beautiful not like a child made it. You did a great job. I love the plaid one, plaids are so ‘homey.’

    Just love them both..they look perfect. But if you are wanting to work on your point perfection..which is what I'm doing now too ~ Check out Pam Bono's site. I've almost got it down and what little bit thats off is getting taken up in the wiggle room. I think it actually has to do more with the way I'm pressing than anything else. But I'm sooo close.

    After taking a look at Pam Bono's site, I'm really scared now... Are you using one of her books? And the Angler?

    I have started using a "scant" 1/4" seam in most of my piecing, but have just been eyeballing it... Guess I need you to talk me into it... lol

    I think they look great. Hang your quilt on the house next door. Go back to your house. Look at your quilt hanging on the neighbors house. If you can't see any imperfections, it is a keeper. On to the next project.
