Finished - Almost . . .

I have come to the realisation that, in quilting, there are varying degrees of "Finished".  
Today I have come to one of those points.
YAY! - WOW!- HOORAY!


My Bali Wedding Star top is finished!

The blocks are together and it is lookin' pretty good!


The 'road map' tags have finally been removed.
They have done a fantastic job of keeping the colour graduation in order and have saved me lots of headaches!



The quilt can now happily go off to be quilted  
. . . BUT . . . 
(and this is where the varying degrees of finished comes in)

A little while ago I decided it needed to be bigger!
The pattern box contained all the papers for the Flying geese border - so why not make them?

It's 'just a border'...
and THEN it will be finished...

They were flying together quite happily until I started thinking about something else...
How on earth did I manage this?
Two papers picked up together and in perfect alignment sewed them together!
What a Goose!

If I can give any advice to anyone starting out
 making one of these quilts it would be
1 - Read ALL the instructions
2 - Points DO matter
3 - Don't Rush it

...now - Where is my unpicker?
