    I took a clue from another quilter. I had to quit moving the pieces around and sewed. I’m going to use two different fabrics for the horizontal sash and another for the interior before the geese

      At first, I was very unhappy with the blocks because of the fabrics in the kit. I wasn't going to make the flying geese border, but now that I've sewn the blocks together, it doesn't look so awful, so I'll do the border and quilt it instead of adding it to my box of UFOs. Thank you, Alex, for pushing me out of my comfort zone!

        Boy is it long to make all of these flying geese! I only have a few hours a day to sew.

          I am done. Needs to have the paper removed and be quilted. It was fun. Thank you, Alex, I loved the variety and had fun choosing colors.

            Happy Happy quilt!

          Because some people can't follow instruction.
          It's amazing how far small pieces of fabric will go, before you cut into fat quarters and yardage.

              Busy but colors work. The yellow border gives a resting place. Bravo to you for making more pineapples!!

            I have about half the flying geese done as well. Very happy to get the Baltimore Beauty blocks done, they were a bit of a challenge.

                I love your colors. These are both favorites of mine, aqua and purple. I love your added border too. I wanted to maybe make mine bigger and wasn’t sure what to add, this is great!

                Fun outside border. Love the colors!

              My pinwheels just didn't want to be in this quilt. Otherwise, I like it.

                Janet, Love your layout. New York beauty center is excellent and it looks great without pin wheels. One thought would have been to pinwheels in the 4 corners of the border in a contrasting color. Like how you put mini geese as a way to make the the math work in your border. Another coping way is to make the inner border a little wider on the sides, but I like the way you did it. HelenW

                Bravo for the unique placement of squares. like the elongation. Colors really work on this.

                Love your layout and colors!

              I only have 12 flying geese to make. The reverses of the colors are calculated and in their position; (ie) lower middle left and high on the right. The corners are all done too. Then to sew all the geese to the outside of the quilt. I’ll have to cut down the size of the orange border a bit because the math does not work.
              I am slow because I have bad arthritis in all my joints, but mostly in my hands and back, so I can only sew 2 hrs a day. But I love this quilt and can’t wait to finish it!
              It took me full 2 days to add the bottom orange border, (sew on, rip out, sew on, rip out, 4 times, trying to get everything to lay as flat as it is now, uuugh!) because it was cut the same direction as the selvage and the two bottom corners are on the bias because of the New York Beauty blocks.

                Noella, I really like the way you are doing your flying geese border. Very unique and creative. HelenW

                fabulous placement! uniquely yours.

              Getting it Done... I sometimes just need a little motivation to pull out a UFO and finish it up. When Alex started the Foundation
              paper pieced sampler, I wanted to play along, but felt I really shouldn't start another project. I pulled a partially thread painted
              fox from a Toni Whitney pattern and an applique from another pattern and decided to use paper foundation to pull my idea together. Thank you Alex because I am almost done, just the binding and sleeve to go. HelenW

                It's Done!! I decided to give myself a break and not do my usual "going off on my own tangent" thing. I subbed in some of my own fabrics, swapped out the linen-like ones in the kit for similar quilting cotton but otherwise followed the pattern in color and design. My mind is a bit busy now and I needed this project to get me back into the quilting groove. I am so amazed and thrilled to see the variation of block placements and colors choices. Bravo to All! Many thanks to Alex for guiding us through this. Can't say I love PP but it's in my toolbox now.
