Geese ready to migrate - north!!

Well, I have finally completed my flying geese quilt and it is all ready to take to the UK with us next week. I do hope that Emily will like it!

The original design is by Sharyn Craig and pictured in The Art of Classic Quiltmaking. I emailed Sharyn this evening with a picture of the quilt and she replied immediately saying how much she liked it and thanking me for contacting her. How special is that!
I was outside this afternoon cleaning the inside of the car ready for our trip when 50 cranes flew over - going south, the right way for migration! What a coincidence.
Am planning a hexagon project for our trip away......

Thank you for coming to take a look.
Until next time

It is absolutely gorgeous, so beautiful colors. I'm sure she will love it, the lucky girl.
Good luck with the hexagon project, be careful though it is addictive :-)

your quilt looks gorgeous!! Lucky Emily.
Your whole cloth quilt is so beautiful too. I have always wanted to do a whole cloth quilt-add it to the list.
Am looking forward to seeing your hexagon project, I agree with Paula-they definitely are addictive!
