Here is a little sideways view of my almost completed red and white Christmas quilt. I have been getting up into the sewing room sporadically and making the rest of the flying geese. Only three more strips of ten geese to go, then I will assemble the sections. The final step will be to add the outer border which I think is just going to be the Eggshell white that I have used for the flying geese and lattice squares.
I like the simplicity of that sort of border treatment, since the blocks are so different from one another.
The end is finally in sight with these darn flying geese.
I'd really like to finish this quilt up and get it to the quilter. She is so good at getting things back to me pretty quickly, that I have a chance at having it in use by Christmas.
I need a new project to get excited about. I may get out my Swell Christmas kit, as that would be fun to work on in November. I'd love to get this done for Eva's bed for the holidays. Thelma (Cupcakes 'n' Daisies) made it not too long ago and had some great tips for constructing the top. I highly recommend you check out the link to her blog if you are thinking of making this quilt.
