Deer and Geese and Paperpiecing, Oh My!

Happy Monday! Rather unexpectedly, I have something on my design wall to share today! I was supposed to work all weekend, but on Saturday I got a welcome, early morning phone call.  Cancelled for the day meant a a bonus day of sewing :)

This sweet little baby quilt just needs borders, so I am hoping to get it quilted today.  I love the soft , but not girly, colors in the geese.

I have been watching enviously at the paper pieced blocks people have made during the Forest Quilt Along and decided to try just one for this quilt.  Whew, it was a lot of work!  I am in love with the results, of course.  You can't beat paper piecing for precision and detail.

Linking up to Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday.


  1. Hi are so right...paper piecing is perfect for details, and you certainly did a perfect job on the Deer. I especially like the way you incorporated it in the baby quilt. I'm inspired!

    I am visiting from Design Wall Monday and would love to have you stop by and see my Corpus Collsum Project on my Design Wall. Just click on the signature link below...hope to see you there.  Your comments are 'Sew' Welcomed!

  2. Wow -- that moose is SPECTACULAR!! What a neat idea, to just put him on the bottom left amidst all the geese. I also found you from Design Wall Monday, BTW. Thanks for sharing!
