I banish thee cold wet wintry spring.

Hopefully that will work, gawds knows nothing else will kick this never ending winter.


This is one of two circle of geese quilts i will be making. From the most current quilt block swap. I was playing with coloured sashings. I wasnt sure at first but it really grew on me. Thanks QBS5. Smiley

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

Yes Mare... There was a bunch of paper piecing in this round. So I wasn't the only one to drive them all mad! Smiley

Its not that hard. Once you get your head around thinking upside down and backwards and sewing the wrong way thru time and space ,its easy! Cheesy

Easy, she says! Grin

I am sure more than one of us in that round was cursing... Grin

Actually, this block was one of my favorites!  I am glad I tried it!

Sloth--the quilt turned out lovely... the sashing really highlights the vibrant colors!

I love the Add-a-Quarter ruler, it takes all the frustration out of paper piecing for me!

I did allow a few paper piecing blocks in last round...and I heard several complaints.   Wink  Paper piecing drives me crazy too - I think I'm going to have to break down & take a class.  But the quilt turned out awesome.
