My Modern Quilt Guild round robin quilt got its third border. Flying Geese! Flying geese are not my favorite thing to make but I love how they look. I knew I wanted a border with them but could not see myself making a gob of them to ring around as a border let alone with any of the methods that never seem to work for me. Paper piecing seemed my best bet so off to the internet I go and found a wonderful pattern by Patrice Trnka Adams and it fit the need perfectly. http://www.forestquilting.com/paperpiecing_free/paperpiecing_free_pdfs/flying_geese_placemat.pdf
I made each color run and then decided to keep it simple by using 4 of the runs.

I like the simple and easy flow and I'm glad I did not try and go overboard on the amount of geese. The clean lines make me happy. Wonder what I will put next? Borders are harder than one would think...hmmm...
