GEESE quilt over NYC

It's fun to see how this grows each day.. If I make a point of posting it each day
that means I HAVE TO DO IT... although you may get sick of looking at them...

 Right now, triangles are scattered everywhere... And I am still waiting for my 
new Go cutter 3" triangle die... Am I the only one who has WORN them out already?
The blades folded right over, and they were not cutting very well anymore...
I guess I use mine a lot... LOL!
I'm also in that transition phase... Every year at this time, I move
everything to my house on long island for the summer... the studio is a 
disaster area and needs some of that yellow and black crime scene police
tape... It's really bad!  BUT, I find more projects that I need to finish 
quickly and get them out of here... 
like this below...
You may recall, after cutting all my triangles to clean out my scrap bins, 
I used up all the UGLIES left over
to make this quilt, and added ONE PRETTY fabric to liven them up!
But this one, I think will look really nice on my bed for summer... 
So I am eager to get it done..

I have three left to finish, and hope to have them done by tomorrow evening,
so I have something to show at our MOD guild meeting Saturday....
tick tock tick tock...
I'm so pleased with how many OLDIES projects I have gotten done with around here...
Remember those posts?  More will be showing up soon, as I sent 5 pout to be quilted!
New Meaning to SPRING CLEANING.... dig out those old tops, and finish them.
Feels good!


 Thank you Vanessa! ( I don't have your email, Vanessa, email me)
She sent me TWO because she couldn't decide... How am I going to decide?
LOL! I love them both!
A couple of you did that to me.. you tricky ones! 
Perhaps I can stick a few duplicates on the back...
and will depend on the final count of blocks...
Thanks Vanessa!

 Holly sent me this really cute crow's beaks block.How cute is that?
I met Holly at Market! It is so cool to put faces with the emails!

Kathleen, the quilting professor sent me this beauty!
Flaming heart!

Next week I hope to have a complete photo of all the blocks...
The deadline has passed, if you mailed already thank you!
I definitely have enough for my king sized quilt!
I wasn't trying to make it king sized, but you've all been so generous! wink!

Hey! I'm also pleased you enjoyed that last post with the silk scarves!
I love it too... 
Have a good one!
