Flying Geese - Finished Block

I completed one block today.... only 15 more to go!

Instead of using the paper piecing templates given in Fons & Porter's magazine to make the flying geese blocks, I used the "Quilt in a Day" small flying geese ruler. It's a super easy and fast way to make the flying geese, but then they finished slightly larger than those in the magazine pattern. My finished complete block measures 22.5", so my finished quilt will be larger too at 90" square.

Flying Geese

Progress on my first quilt of 2010.....

I've made lots of these flying geese blocks and I'm excited about the way I see this quilt coming together.

Of course, while I was laying out the flying geese to sew into sections, Ted decided I needed a little help. If he gives me some space I should have a couple of full quilt blocks done this weekend.
