Description

I have loved this pattern and wanted to give it ago for awhile... used some of Terrain scarps to do so.  Needs to be quilted but it was fun to make and not at all hard.

Update 5-10-14  Quilting is done and binding is made just needs to be sewn on.

Update 5-17-14 Done and ready to be gifted!

It's lovely... and looks difficult.

True

Readerowl Karen thank you...it truly is amazing how easy to do it is...

Caribousmom

Love this one, Mary...anything with Terrain is A++++++ in my book...and I'm with Karen - this one looks hard to do, but I believe you if you say it is not!

True

Caribousmom thank you and I so love this fabric. I would not have wanted this to be my first paper piecing experience but other than that it is a fun pattern. And since it looks hard people will think it took forever ;-)

Aizome

Wow!!! Super duper fabulous!!!!

HawkFan

So pretty and looks like a great way to use scraps!

Joke

I wish I could grab this out of my computer screen and keep it for myself ;) Love it!!

True

Carolmarie it really isn't tedious to make...it truly is fun as it is so cool seeing how it comes together! Thanks...

True

Joke HawkFan Aizome thank you all...and yes Audrey it is great for scraps as you do not need much and looks good with so many different colors and backgrounds, etc.

Mymble

Really wonderful...will it be a mini? or is it going into something else? So great!

True

Mymble yes I am going to finish as a mini and send to a friend! Thank you...

Mymble

Awesome- will look so great on a wall!

Quilterinmotion

True , I love your geese go round you are right. It makes people think younreally slaved over it. Onlybthose who have done it know how much fun itbis your friend is going to love it Y our fabrics are lovely.

Quilterinmotion

Sorry I am typing on a tiny keyboard and lots of letters keep popping in wherevthey don't belong

True

Quilterinmotion thank you...and yes it will be our secret;-)

Terryt1955

I swear I am going to try this out since every time I see it I drool! But I think I need to practice a little p.p first just to get my confidence up.
It would make a fabulous pillow top too!

True

Terryt1955 it would make a great pillow...and you can do it honest!!

Terryt1955

I printed out the pattern and it actually looks doable! I'm not going to allow myself to try it until I finish Karen's border, The may pillow (which reminds me of a circle of geese, BTW) and my house quilt.Why do I have to work!

Quilterinmotion

Terryt1955 , this is definitely doable. What makes a paper piecing move to a "Difficult" level is when there are about 60 pieces and a lot of them are tiny. This PP block is fun to make and you will want to make it again and again! True used such fun fabrics too and I love the border!

HawkFan

Great quilting design!!

True

HawkFan thanks i saw it somewhere else...well the middle part. IF I make this again I would add white fabric (or whatever I used for background) before the border so could quilt around the outside of geese as well. I struggled with how to quilt this one...and ever did a couple things and ripped them out which I never do!!

Gardencrafter

Ooh, I love this. The beautiful colors just pop with the white background!

True

Gardencrafter thank you so much!

HawkFan

Yes, ripping out quilting is such a pain - much harder than seam ripping. The end result is great though!

True

HawkFan :-)

True

Carolmarie thanks

Quilt455

Love, love, love you scrappy border. The quilting is great!

True

Quilt455 thank you just stopped and got thread tonight so can finish binding this weekend...I hope:-)

Terryt1955

The pink binding is the perfect color!! What as beautiful gift and the recipient is very lucky indeed!

Terryt1955

Oh My, I just saw the back and LOVE that as well. What beautiful fabric!!
Is that Terrain as well? Seems much bigger scale than the resat of her line....

True

Terryt1955 yes it is all from Terrain line...love that backing fabric wish it was what I had purchased for back of other lap size Terrain quilt but I bought something else... oh well. Thank you.

Skynme

Love this, very pretty fabrics! I have a love hate relationship with paper piecing, but it just turns out so lovely. Great job!

Dtscrapper

What a great looking block - you did a wonderful job! And I love the fabrics!

True

Dtscrapper Skynme thank you both... I love paper piecing in part for the results in part it kind of amazes my brain;-). Hey Paula she is almost there!!! Just a few more days;-)

Conniharns

True I love this wall hanging. That Kate Spain fabric is fabulous...wish I could find some. So very pretty. You are giving Turbo a run for her money...good grief do you ever sleep!!!

True

Conniharns LOL not nearly enough;-). And thank you...and there are still online shops that have this fabric (including on etsy) may not be able to get the whole thing but lots of it.

HawkFan

Gorgeous finish. It's so bright and cheery. Lucky recipient!

True
