Designer Mystery BOM - Block 7

A finished up block 7 of the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery BOM recently.  I have blocks 8 and 9 that I need to make up.  Yes, I'm behind.  I'm actually behind on both of my BOMs.  Oh well, it is what it is.  Life has been crazy lately.  I'm not on a deadline or anything.  I find that when I put myself on a deadline that it just stresses me out and takes the fun away from quilting.  I want quilting to remain fun, so I will continue to do things on my terms and not stress out about being behind. 
I love this block.  Isn't it cute?  I think so.  Believe it or not, in my 8+ years of quilting, this is the first time I have ever made flying geese.  I don't know why.  I don't have an aversion to them, I just have never made them.  Now I can say that I have.
Here are the first 7 blocks all together.  Once finished the quilt will have some sashing in between all of the blocks.


  1. What a fun quilt this is going to be....

  2. You and I have the same philosophy regarding deadlines. Nothing sucks the fun out of quilting faster than a deadline to me. It's a good thing as I have the 2009 mystery BOM from FQS still waiting for the first block to be pieced.
