    LOOOOOVE IT!! Love love love it. It looks amazing! And I love how you coordinated the diagonal strips with the geese right below them. I'm so honored that you followed my tute!

    Thanks John! I thought that extending the diagonals gave it a sort of ribbony-look and kept your eye traveling. It's a great pattern and the Japanese fabrics are perfect!!! Now, quilting ideas?

    Oh wow, I think I remember this being made in Odyssea. I love it in these fabrics.

    Lynne Good memory! I had been saving these gorgeous Japanese indigos for some time (many were purchased on my behalf in Japan by a colleague's wife many years ago when my husband went there for work). As soon as I saw John's design, I knew they'd be perfect. It was tough to press those geese with such heavy fabric, but I love it and can't wait to have it on my table!
