meet Tucker ....

Meet Tucker - tuck er anywhere.  ^^  You can read all about Tucker here

 These are 1½" squares and I quite surprised myself that I was able to work with that size and actually line up most a lot of them.  Since I like stitching and like this quote I replaced the strip of flying geese with the stitchery.  If you look closely it  looks like it was made by someone with poor eyesight by candlelight.  ^^ I should confess that I've had problems with flying geese but not any more!!!  Over the holidays I mastered them thanks to the method of making four at a time.

I'll bet that took a lot of time, Kate! It turned out great and I really like the quote that you used on it. Wishing you a very happy 2016!

That is a wonderful little quilt, small ones are fun to do.
I am working on a flying geese top that a friend gave me, hand stitching the geese, then I will tack the strips.
I tried it on the new bed and it just fits with a border, hard to fit a long twin, so this one will be perfect.

too clever Kate! I love it!
And well done on mastering FGs - they still scare me, but i'll have to do them on some blocks for the Friendship Quilt I'm making at my patchwork group

Oh my gosh, that's such a tiny one! It looks great, though, I love what you did.

That is lovely, now you have conquered the small pieces and your flying geese I think you should next attempt paper piecing {big grin} Happy New year to you and yours
