It's from the Flying Geese Denyse Schmidt pattern.  I just made some calculations and made it bigger so that it would be full sized. 

I'm very happy with how it came out, but I really need to learn free motion quilting so that the quilting could be more interesting.  I also learned my lesson about two different colors of thread when quilting on a solid back.  I feel like so much white is showing through on the back.  But oh well!  Otherwise, I love it!

That's fantastic!  I love that you did the log cabin squares on the back, too.  I always like interesting quilt backs.  Smiley

This is simply glorious!  I adore the modern fabrics you used!  Free motion quilting is overrated  Wink  Your simple squares look great!  Fancy quilting doesn't show up well with dynamic prints anyway.

This is fabulous!  All those geese (and all those points!) are very impressive.  And I LOVE the back.  What a great idea with the log cabins.  Now I'm going to have to figure out how to make my backs more interesting, too Wink.

I too, really like the back of the quilt, although all of it is gorgeous.  I love the bright colors and patterns.  And I think I'll have to adopt the interesting back thing and use it for my next quilt!

I love red and white quilts.  I've been so wanting to make a flying geese quilt - you've inspired me!  Great work.

Don't even get me started about the cheddar fabric
