Love the pieced binding on this little gem! Thanks for sharing directions, Cheri. I would love to receive one of your treasures some day.

I love the little quilt! I have the perfect place for it in my kitchen. And today's my birthday...and I'm old...really, really old! :) I'm a big fan! I've got all your painting and quilting books from the 90's! I still love them and use them. Primitive design never gets old.

I love all three of these little quilts! My 4-year-old granddaughter has been asking me to save fabric squares for her so I can teach her to sew. I think we'll start with the center of this quilt. It will be perfect for her favorite doll (when finished!).

Your little quilt is just perfect! I would be challenged making those little geese!

Flying geese to me is something that happens in the fall as the geese migrate south. So you can tell I am not a quilter.

I'd love to have your little quilt come and live at my home. Thanks for the chance to win.
