Design Wall Monday

These Flying Geese blocks are 4 x 8 inches. I saw
this Valentine fabric at Wal Mart and it was pretty
good quality so I bought about 4 yards
and am going to do one of
Eleanor Burns' patterns of a Flying Geese Quilt.
Probably just a couch throw size ...nothing too big. See those middle blocks that are the little heart candies?
Remember when we would trade cards when we
were kids in school and get those? I liked to get them but
sure didn't like how they tasted....and still don't.
The count for the 9 patches this week is.....
195 down and 75 to go!!! I saw this little guy can barely see the red on his head. I spotted a large red headed wood pecker earlier in the day and by the time I went and got my camera he flew off....I probably scared him when I hopped up out of my chair. I need to keep the camera by the sewing machine.


  1. I love that flying geese pattern. Can't wait to see more of yours. Those fabrics are going to be great for that pattern.

  2. Wow your nine patch is going to be huge! I love the colours is this quilt a stash buster?

  3. That one looks like the ones we have here in North Dakota. I think it's either a Downy Woodpecker or a Hairy Woodpecker. They're difficult to tell apart. It's a male, though. The female doesn't have any red on it's head if I'm not mistaken.
