I almost forgot to post! Not that I have much to post about. I got a whole 4 more geese sewn in 3 weeks. Ugh. I really don't like hand work but I do love how the geese look when I do them by hand. I did this same sort of block once before but did the sewing on the folded over part by machine. When I look back at that, I am not happy at all with how it looks, but I'm certainly not going to take the whole quilt apart (it is the center medallion of the quilt) just to change it. I'm looking at it as a learning experience! So I am up to 43 geese done, at 10 minutes per goose puts me at over 7 hours of hand sewing on this quilt and I know I'll be pushing 100 hours of hand work by the time I get it finished. I hope I can finish it this year. At least, because of this HQA, I am making a little progress. I have also decided to put safety pins to mark the geese I sew each 3 weeks so I don't have to count them all every time!
