A Mess of Geese!

I am finally back to working on my flying geese quilt. I got the first 2 rows put together this week!
It is going to be a BIG quilt. Then I did a little count of how many more flying geese units I needed for the sashing.
So as of right now I will still need 18 of the 8 geese units and 13 of the 2 geese units.
I am just using up the scraps from the blocks first so we'll see if I have enough to finish it. Otherwise I am sure there is enough in my stash!
Here is the flying geese mess!
And a quilting update...almost every evening is being spent quilting my applique quilt. I have gotten all the quilting done on one block, so I am working on the second block now. It is a long process but a satisfying one. I am on a mission though. There is a local quilt show in April in Moose Jaw and I'd like to have it finished so I can enter it. So many quilts now in shows are long-armed and I think it's important to keep hand quilting alive in the quilt shows...I have a long way to go but I know I can have it done in time.
Happy Stitching!
