"99 bright flying geese" doll quilt- detail

This quilt was totally inspired by Nettie's awesome rainbow geese quilt seen here: aquiltisnice.blogspot.com/2011/04/rainbow-geese-quilt.html.

 

Right now there are 96 flying geese, but I've got 3 more in the label to make it 99. I named it "99 Bright Flying Geese on the Wall" because I always had the song "99 bottles of beer on the wall" in my head while I was sewing these things up, with the words changed about geese. "Trim one down, toss the scraps around, 96 bright flying geese on the wall" etc. What can I say, teeny piecing like this makes me a bit delirious. Do you have this song in your head now? I hope so.

 

Size is apx. 12 x 16 inches. Including the white, backing fabric, and the other 3 geese (one is a repeat of a front goose), there are 100 fabrics in this baby.
