The cute factor

It's all in the size.  
The block is from Kim Brackett's "Scrap Basket Sensations".  The first rendering is 12", the second is 7".  Small is always cuter!  I challenged myself to find a way to cut these blocks from a set of two identical charm packs, and it worked.  I'm still making the larger one from two jelly rolls of "Blueberry Crumb Cake" but will now do a small version using the Sandy Gervais fabrics.  Probably don't have enough left of the charm packs to make the pieced border so that's up in the air.  

On other fronts, I finally finished my Wild Geese quilt with the plain border.  Much, much better.  I'm finally happy.  I know that some commented they liked the pieced border better, and I could see its' charms, but this pleases me.

Boy, do I love your Wild Geese quilt! It was beautiful with the pieced border too but this is so striking! A really lovely eye-catching pattern!
