This is the Goose Tracks Quilt I have been working on for a little over a year now.  (This is a Hoop Sisters, embroidery block in the hoop quilt.)  The blocks were time consuming but not difficult.  Putting all those blocks together and getting them flat was the real challenge. I finally have the front and binding done.  Still need to sew the sleeve and label to the back.  The sun is out, so thought this was a good time to take a picture:

I think I will still do a little blending on the background blue from darker on the left to lighter on the right.  What do you all think?

Personally Donna, I think the quilt is really lovely just the way it is.  If I give you my address, how soon will it be on its way to me?  LOL   Ginny

Awesome, Donna!  What a fun variety of blocks in this quilt, and I love the inner border of gray ovals with flying geese.  What are you using to blend the blues?  I think only the upper row needs a little more blending.  Beautiful quilt!

I can see why the quilt shop owner wants your bee quilt, Barbara!  It's great!  Has your participation in the round robin groups helped you do design work like this?  Very nice quilting, too.  What a talent!

Actually, what you are seing as gray is. lavender with a light green.

  What are you using to blend the blues?  I think only the upper row needs a little more blending.  Beautiful quilt!

  That's what keeps catching my eye too...the upper row/center.  What am I using to blend the blues?  Don't laugh now...I used colored pencils for fabric.  I was too afraid to try any inks or dyes!  I tried the pencils on some scraps first to find the colored-pencil in the set that was the right shade of blue, then just started lightly blending...lighter on the right to darker on the left.  Then heat-set it with the iron. 

Thanks...

Well I've been looking at everyone's beautiful quilts. Mine isn't so beautiful but it is cute. I finally finished it after working on it for over a month. Some days I move very slow. I did a second one and it went together much quicker the second time around. Here is a picture of this adorable quilt/ mat.

donna, your quilt is wonderful,  and yes just a bit more blending in the upper center.
