Goosey Goosey Gander: Friday Finish Version!

Made this for my Mom for her birthday.  I am pretty sure she liked it!!  She has a sunflower kitchen, and the green fabric has pretty little sunflowers.

The back, no ties to tangle with!!

Mom always is shocked at how much I can accomplish in so little time.  So, she watched me cut the scraps, stacking the fabric.  I showed her some chain piecing and made a nine patch block.  Then I showed her how to have some good old fun!  Disappearing Nine Patch!!  Mom took the rest home to do herself.  Go Mom!!!

Soaring Past Time for Vickie!! 
74 pieces


19 goslings made from the Wavy Navy babies

2 dozen...eggs?

These are made from the Soaring Past Time babies.  Even smaller!  I think I may have taken the geese thing too far.  Anyway I enjoyed making them, but don't know what to do with them.  So,  the gaggle are winging their way to Vickie as they are.

Going to sew with Dee today!!  Hope you all have as much fun as I will!!
