12 x 12 Swap Completed!

Yay, finally finished my 12x12 swap! Although I enjoyed making it, it took me many 15 minutes of play!!! I started with the general idea - curved geese, with a few "extra" geese trying to join the group! I made fabric for the geese, and paper pieced the geese a la Victoria (thank you!).


Then I made fabric for the lime background (my fave color), and curve-pieced the geese to the background. This will be going into the mail tomorrow, on its way to...??? Hope she likes it!

This was my first swap - thanks for doing this, V - great idea!

Love it - it would be welcome in my mailbox. I am in awe of the quilting which I am yet to master.
