This quilt was in a magazine from 2009 and I have loved it since the first time I saw it, that is until I started cutting it out. Now I may have been the problem, but from the beginning I just found the pattern very hard to follow.
When I started sewing and the flying geese did not have a seam allowance at the point, I knew I was in trouble. I ended up recutting a lot of the pieces and adding or subtracting an 1/8 inch or a 1/4 inch. It took me five days to cut and piece this quilt, and I full well intended for it to be done three days ago with another quilt finished. It is 47 inches by 47 inches with 389 pieces.
Sometimes the quilts we struggle the most with become our treasures, and I am just sure this one will become my all time Christmas favorite.
