Progress on For the Love of Geese

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I’ve been away for a while.  It has been pretty busy for me.  We had wonderful Holidays.  I’ve spent time with friends and family.  Once I got back to work I was bombarded with end of the year duties.  Everything has to be in.  But now that is over and I can get back to normal.

I didn’t have time to blog about my goal from last month or even get one in for this month but I did have it all sewed together.  I found that I had lots of shifting with the papers on when sewing the wedges together.  I’m not all that happy with my sewing, but it will have to do.  I have a wad of fabric in the middle and doubt I would be able to get it apart and fixed any better.  I had never done a star pattern before and believe that this was probably my issue.  I made a backing out of the left over fabrics.  So at this point, I have just sandwiched it up and will give it some quilting and chalk it up to a learning experience.  I might have to try it again after I have more experience.  My son said he likes it so it will be for him.  Here’s my picture of it, warts and all.


Concerning paper piecing, I do like that the blocks come out very precise.  I didn’t have trouble until the piece got bigger.  A smaller project would be more to my liking.  The pattern was well written and easy to follow.  I didn’t find any mistakes.

The linky parties I usually participate in can be found by clicking this link.  Please visit them and see what others are up to.  There are many bloggers out there who share their tips, projects, and tutorials to help us through ours.

Thanks for stopping by.  That’s all for now.

  1. I think it looks terrific. Lucky son! I do understand about the thickness in the center. That’s really hard to avoid in some patterns. What is your finished size?


  2. I think it looks great! I too have difficulty with pieces shifting when stitching with the papers on, no matter how much I pin. No one will see any imperfections except you. It will be beautiful when it’s quilted. Thanks for sharing your project on MCM!


  3. Your top looks wonderful, warts and all! Yes, it’s a learning experience but take a step back and realize that you have a wonderful quilt here! And you are ready to quilt it so this is a time to celebrate! Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss.
