Patchwork Flying Geese Quilt

Hey friends! 
 It's been a minute. 
 I've been so busy lately going through "stuff" and listing, and packing, and shipping.  
This is a lot of work! 
 I have managed to re-home a few things but it doesn't even look like I have done anything! 
 I have managed to sneak in a bit of sewing here and there though.
I got pulled into another quilt along with my friends, Kallie and Mel. 
 It was the Patchwork Flying Geese quilt.  
I needed to make a quilt for a gift so I just adapted this pattern to fit that!  
I got my fabrics cut out and sewn into ALL THE GEESE, LOL.  
Then I trimmed them all to the correct size.

Next up was to lay the quilt top out on my design wall. 
 Pardon the lighting!

This was about half way. 
 I ended up rearranging some by the time I had all the blocks up.  
They did not all fit on my design wall so some were on the floor
.  I had to sew those quickly so the "boys" didn't have time to rearrange them for me!

I managed to get it all finished!  
Now I need to decide what I want to do for the back.  
Some kind of Minky I think but not sure if it should be navy or a slightly lighter blue. 
 The  people I want to gift this to have a white pet so I worry about navy. 

I am totally loving this!
More soon!!

Hey long time no see - I had forgotten you had a blog! I love flying geese and this is gorgeous. I've still not sewn with minky, I'll be interested to see what color you choose. I tend to go with gray every chance I get lately.
