    That's really nice. What size did you make the geese? That was a lot of work!
  • Alissa Haight Carlton 7y

    thanks wonderbreadpowers! I made the triangles out of 6.25 inch squares - just like the pattern in the book... I just did some math and upped the numbers of rows & columns to increase the size of the quilt. It was a lot of work - my only full sized quilt for now! Some more baby ones for me before tackling full (or queen!) sized again...

    Thats a truckload of geese! I love it. I'm a big monochromatic fan. Beautiful work.
  • Fiona Dalton 7y

    Really pretty - I do love your colour scheme. You are so right about all those triangles (I feel like I may never get throgh them!), but it's worth putting in the hard yards.

    Great job! I want to try this pattern.
  • GeorgiaMcDonald 7y

    brilliant!
  • **Bridie** 7y

    Oh this is gorgeous! I was just doing a search on flickr to find some examples of flying geese quilts as I have just begun cutting fabric for the same Denyse Schmidt quilt, which I will be making larger for a single bed. What a beautiful selection of fabrics you have used - love the palette. I'm using a range of the DS Katie Jumps Rope fabrics for mine (it's for my son) and I hope it comes close to looking as lovely as this one.
  • Alissa Haight Carlton 7y

    Thanks so much Bridie! I'm sure that those Katie Jump Rope fabric will be perfect. I'm using loads of it in my next quilt and as I have been cutting away I've been thinking to myself that it's so rare to find such a great fabric line that works for men as well... Can't wait to see your quilt when you're done!
