An Aged Goose

ProgressGosh, I can hardly believe it’s been more than a year since I introduced my Goose in the Pond quilt…er, Flamingeese quilt to you. But time does indeed fly, doesn’t it?

The inspiration…a set of ca. 1930s blocks

Click through to see what I thought was a hilarious solution to a little problem I encountered.) Okay, maybe I’m easily amused, but I was tickled!) I had used a set of circa 1930s blocks as my inspiration and made my own version, but what I wanted it to end up looking like was not quite what I finally got.

Problem solved

Plan to see this quilt again one of these days because, although I am embarrassed to say this, I never quite finished it. I sewed the binding on on the machine and started whipping it down but…yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it was almost done. I had cut the binding very narrow and wrapping it to the back was a chore that I just got tired of. So, into the to-be-finished pile it went, and there it is still. I am still mad at it, so it is in time-out.

If you’ve followed me long at all, you surely know that this is the point where I get hung up with quilts. Well, not the ONLY point, but definitely a sticking point. I am still working on that. This was part of the motivation for the 55 finishes I’m (still) hoping for this year.

So, yeah. Happy Monday. My gift to you today is the knowledge that I am the  S L O W E S T  finisher in the history of the world. So no matter how slow you might be, you can rest easy knowing that I am probably way slower.

Hope you have a great day! I’ll see you back here tomorrow.

    I have to say that even though I don’t like pink, I love the look of your block. It must just be the variegated colors!

      Hi Ginger,

      Funny thing, pink isn’t my favorite either, but it works here, doesn’t it? And yes, any quilt is more exciting g with variations in color, at least in my eyes. 🙂

      Hi Ginger,

      Thanks! Pink isn’t my favorite color either, which begs the question WHY I chose it for this. Who knows? But the depth of colors makes it fun. I think it would work in any color, though, don’t you?
