Look what I got in the mail today from the BEST quilting machine company in the whole wide world!!

No - it didn't come with a chunk missing ... I just couldn't resist.  I do LOVE my Handiquilter!! And who doesn't love a giant chocolate bar.

Today I could resist this either.  I just had to start putting a few pieces together on my newest project and I'm loving it.  Lots of love going around today!  I do still have to piece 50 more flying geese.  This is going to be a great quilt.

One problem with changing techniques in an established pattern ... or maybe it's just my sewing and pressing.  The blocks came out a teeny bit too small.  Donna - are you listening?  I did have to put a tiny little border around each one and then resquare them up to 15.5".  Easy peasy!!

While I was sewing ... look who was stealing a little nap time where she should not be.

Amazing how blissful our little darlings look in forbidden spots. Miss Cha Cha is in heaven walking on the kitchen counters where she knows she is not to be. Love the geese!

Your quilt is gorgeous, should be stunning when it's all finished.

Boy oh boy are we going to have gorgeous quilts when we get finished. I just finally cleaned up my sewing room so I could find everything again. I'll be joining you in spirit soon!
