FInished Quilt #3

I don't think I showed my finished QPOM (Quilt Pattern of the Month) on my blog. You've seen me working on it, but here it is completely finished... even the binding is done. I enjoyed every part of working on this quilt, and really like the idea of flying geese blocks side by side for a border. The pattern is by Jackie Syer of FRJ Designs. 

I don't often sew with solids, so using the brown for the border was a bit unusual for me, but I like it, particularly how well it shows the quilting. I do wish the corner quilting design met together in a way that the diamonds would be the same size as the diamonds that are down the rest of the borders. But the photo I took conveniently doesn't show that, and now I seem to like it more. It's funny how that happens! This is finished quilt #3 for 2015!

Happy for you! Love the quilt. I like the use of the solid color brown border. I think it shows off the center design.

Great quilt. I enjoy your blog every morning with my coffee. I have seen a couple of Jackie Syer patterns. I haven't been able to find her patterns anywhere on the internet. Could you point me in the right direction to purchase her patterns? Thanks

You are making me feel like a REAL slacker with 3 finishes. Great to see your fun quilt all finished. I forget the size. Who get s it now?

I like this a lot and the brown was a perfect choice for the border.

Kathy, slow down! I was so excited when I had a finish for January early in the month. This weekend I will do my second finish. I also have my UFO quilt of the month to do. I just can't keep up with you and it's destroying my self esteem! Actually you are a inspiration and model for me for when I retire. I want to be you! It would be fun just to spend a day with you to see how you can accomplish so much. Please tell me your house is a wreck and you eat fast food for dinner every night? (Fib a bit, if you have to!)
