Flying Geese

A few posts ago I mentioned that I like to work on Flying Geese blocks in the Fall.  The migrating flocks always remind me of quilts.  So, Cheri's Three Little Quilts was the perfect weekend project.  I cut the flying geese parts from scrap strips during the week and then enjoyed the weekend pulling the little quilts together.  Thanks, Cheri, for the inspiration!


Jan and I are planning on alot of sewing next weekend.  I'm working on a couple UFO's and one new project.  I was looking thru the state books to find a quilt similar to the Thaddeus Stevens quilt from Lincoln and found a quilt in Arkansas Quilts that jumped to the top of my list.  I haven't started a new quilt in quite awhile (I'm not saying I haven't added to the list). 

I'm in the process of sewing on a quilt binding, so I'll have a finished quilt to share soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a fun plan - a weekend of sewing with a friend - doesn't get much better than that! LOVE the little geese projects, all so sweet!
Thank you for sharing.

Love the flying geese ... Wish I had time to do some quilting. Not in the Christmas spirit this year - and wish I didn't have to be baking, wrapping, etc.

these are wonderful! I love Cheri's blog she is just full of inspiration. I see 3 more little quilts in my future in Jan.
Merry Christmas to both of you!
hope you enjoy the holidays
