I've finished the last two "quilts" for my Red and White Tribute Quilt.
I just knew I needed some flying geese in my project, and there were several quilts with geese that caught my eye.
Like this quilt for example, #765, displayed in Pavilion 1, Interior Top.
In the end my decision was driven by the space I had to fill, and this one fit the bill perfectly.
This is quilt #1026 and was displayed in Pavilion 12, Interior Bottom. The quilting really makes this quilt, there are braids between each row of geese and in the border. I plan to ask my quilter to do the same.
So here's my version of 1026.
I also felt pretty strongly that some log cabin blocks needed to be in my quilt.
I'm going with 3 inch finished blocks. I'm thinking they will be good filler for the space I have left. (I paper pieced these blocks)
So that's it, all that's left is putting together all the pieces.

And here's how I'm doing it. I'm shooting for a quilt around 68" x 82" and using graph paper to get a general idea of how it should all go together. Scary, I know! I'm guessing this isn't how the professionals do it.
Thanks so much for your continued support and interest in this project, your comments have motivated me and convinced me that this will all come together, hopefully it doesn't all come together in my trash can . . .just kidding, I'm too stubborn to give up now!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, the temperatures here are finally bearable. After heat indexes in the triple digits, 80 degrees is feeling great!
