Can You Hear Them???

Hello Everyone,

As you know, I have been busy piecing the borders for my Glacier Star quilt to make it a queen size instead of just a wall hanging.   In the border you will find quite a bit of these...


flying geese.  See all those trimmings, well there wasn't just one set of geese...


no, not one...


not two...


not three..


but a whole flock or gaggle!!  Can you hear them now??  I sure can!  They were fun to make, but I'll tell you when you make anything larger than a lap size everything gets multiplied by a gazillian! 


Now they are all stacked and ready to fly right into the borders of my Glacier Star quilt!  Can you tell I LOVE to paper piece?

If you forgot, go get the 6th installment of the Blogger's BOM here.  I know you will love it!

Make sure you come back here on Wednesday for a very special announcement!

Until Next Time...

Oh my gosh...your flying geese can be heard all the way up in Nova Scotia! Love them. I finished my bloggers BOM...I think it was my favorite so far. Really fun to make!

Great geese and wonderful background fabric for them.
I just finished your red & white geese and am proud to say I did not make any mistakes with your method (a first for me)

lovely, lovely - I always like the patterns for paper piecing then when I sit at the machine I hate it. I need to finish my pineapple blocks so I can start a New York Beauty.

OMG what a lot of geese!! I guess the variety of colors would keep you from getting bored while making them. It is amazing how much work a pieced border is. It is usually almost the same amount of hours as the center of a quilt.

Wow! Those are beautiful. Not sure if I have that much patience anymore.

Cathi said...

Oh, how beautiful!! I cannot wait to see your completed top!
I think I just might hear some geese as they fly back north for the summer (wishful thinking?)
