This was a BOM project that only lasted 9 months.  When I brought home the fabric for the first block, my younger son said......hmmmmmmmmmmmm, I kind of like that.  So, I took him to the quilt shop to see the finished product and he calimed the whole project as his.  The finishing kit on ths quilt consists of 200 flying geese blocks.  If any of you are familiar with Timeless Treasures, the method is to over-size the blocks and then trim them all to the correct size after they are sewn.  What this meant was handling 200 flying geese 3 times each before they went into the quilt itself.  I think the journey was worth the trip every time I see my son wrapped up in his "super hug" from Mom. :)

What a beautiful quilt, the colors, the piecing and the quilting.  Did you do the quilting yourself?

Frances........this was a BOM through my local quilt shop.  I have seen the kit offered in some of the fabric/sewing catalogs, still.  I think the last one I got that still offered it was Timeless Treasures.  If you google Timeless Treasures Tonga Batik, you will probably be able to find the pattern and possibly some kits that are still available.

In my wildest dreams could I ever create a quilt such as yours.,,

My first quilt top I recently finished was suppose tp be a "fence rail", guess what I had to rename it as The Wood Pile. I did learn from it and I think I can do better next time.
