Working on My Prim Flying Geese Quilt

The triangles are still pinned as I work on aligning the rows and such and taking another picture to see if I like the arrangement and the fabric choices.  I see one triangle now that needs to be replaced or shuffled to a different spot.

Bailey is making it difficult to get that last row straight.  He could be out on the roof enjoying the sun or watching the birds, but he'd rather be in the same room with me.  The background is a black brushed cotton with a white pinstripe from Brannock & Patek.  The applique will be a challenge on the large background unless I end up cutting it into sections.  

Wanting to get the Collector Series basted for quilting, Bailey has other plans.  He's a sweet Burmese, very shy.

  1. Hi Nancy,
    I always admire your flying geese and your patience to appliqué them all on to the background. This quilt is going to be fabulous.
    My grandson has a dog named Bailey, a big soft creature who also likes to be in the middle of everything.
    Sending you hugs,

  2. i always make a "fake" sewing pile for the cats ...... ahhhh they are way too smart to fall for that old trick! loving the flying geese ......

  3. I love flying geese quilts! This one will be particularly interesting because of the setting and I read you will be appliqueing (did I write that correctly?) them? Never seen that before! Can't wait to see more.

  4. Morning Nancy, one of my favorite patterns, love Flying Geese, great colors.....sweet Kitty and love the Mule Deer, great picture....Happy Sunday, Francine.

  5. Wether I pieced or appliqued, I am sure my triangles would be crooked, lol.
    I like the idea of doing it with circles.


  6. Nancy,
    It is looking fabulous! I like the arrangement of the flying geese - it really makes it interesting and adds movement. I am always in awe of how much you accomplish.
    Your 'helpers' were doing a fine job huh:?)

  7. Hi Nancy,

    Really like the colors you chose for the flying geese; it's going to be stunning! Bailey just likes company whether he's paying attention or not.

  8. Gotta love a man that 'quilts'!!
