  1. This is such a beautiful quilt and the colors are so fresh. Thanks for sharing it and I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Heidi I simply love this quilt. I bought all the fabrics and started this morning. I’m havng trouble with my flying geese are 2 3/4 high but you have me sewing to a 3 inch square. Any suggestions of what I’m doing wrong. Thanks Pat

    • That’s because once you sew the 2 3/4 flying geese to the 3″ square with a 1/4″ seam allowance, it will allow for you to still have a 1/4″ seam allowance for the other sides of the square and make all the corners line up.

  3. I love this quilt and am in the process of cutting out the pieces for one. My question is in the photo of your flying geese units, the red points go right up to the edge of the fabric. yet when they are sewn together the tips are not cut off. How is this possible? How can I leave a 1/4 inch space so when sewn together the tips will not be cut off? does this make sense?

    • Yes, it makes sense. That is the purpose of a flying ‘goose’ piece…it’s supposed to leave about a 1/4″ of space so they can be sewn together without chopping off the tips. If you follow the instructions precisely it should leave that space. If you don’t understand my instructions for flying geese, maybe try googling it and reading a few other tutorials. With some practice, it will work out for you. Just make sure you are very, very precise…that’s the trick with quilting!

  4. hello made my day finding your blog, the star pattern is too me one of the best tutorial , I have found thanx so much an soooooo happy great blog . renee

    • I can’t tell you precisely off hand since it’s in storage, but it’s a lap size blanket…probably around 40 by 50?

  5. I’m afraid your white piece measurements are off by 1/4 inch. They end up larger than the flying geese they are sewn to and must be cut off to make square pieces.
