I decided to add a narrow yellow border to the panel, then use the narrow stripe of the matching border print for the second border.

I spent my sewing time yesterday making flying geese in 4 different colours.These are sewn together, and will be the third border, followed by the wide stripe of the border print.

I'll be happy when this is together, as it waited much too long in my stash!
I spent the morning making split pea soup from my Mother's recipe.  I had a ham bone waiting in the freezer, along with some diced leftover ham to add.  It smells wonderful, and will be dinner tonight along with toasted English muffin bread.  I read on another blog about making this in the oven, but I make mine in the microwave.  It cooks in 6 minutes, and is wonderful toasted!

Check out all the creativity shared at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. Your flying geese look fabulous! Love the bright and cheery colors :)

  2. Your flying geese will be a great addition to the quilt. They are perfectly made! Gotta go take a peek at more of your blog. :)

  3. I love the pop that yellow border gives the quilt, Susan! It really sets off the narrow border print so well. I think your flying geese and wider border print will be gorgeous!

  4. Great job on this. Panels can be made into a wonderful finished project by doing just what you are doing -- adding borders. Nice job.
