I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Made the nicest flying geese with Eleanor burns rulers, sold it, never took pictures back in the day.. Now, I take pic of my quilts and save on computer. It was a success.

Yes, those are geese and I wish I could have gotten a better picture cause they are so cute.

That is beautiful - and I like the geese in the corners.

Betty, you did a great job!
Are those geese I see sitting on the corners in the outer borders?

Here is the picture of my quilt, if I have downloaded it correctly. If not, sorry. I'll keep trying.

Had fun doing it regardless of the outcome. Thanks.

Betty, I can't wait to see it! Remember the "galloping horse" rule. If you can't see the imperfections while galloping on a horse, then you shouldn't worry about it. It's my golden rule! :)

I have finished my Flying Geese quilt and as soon as I get a picture of it I will send photo. I was the one who made the 200 geese right away but didn't know what to do with them. They are not perfect but I like the quilt anyway. I am working on another one but ran out of fabric and can't get anymore. I am going to have to be very creative with that one.
Best to all,
