Stay At Home Round Robin Border 3

This week Anja of Anja Quilts hosted the SAHRR and her prompt was to make flying geese. Anja made beautiful and varied flying geese for her block! I LOVE flying geese, but I didn't want a lot of them landing on my quilt to distract from the Lynx Star center block. So I decided to keep them small and sparse.

I made 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch units

I added two lengthwise borders in the same red plaid and dark green as the plus blocks from last week, and the quilt now measures 46 x 51 inches. I am really enjoying these weekly challenges, and I'm not tired of working with Christmas colors! Go have a look at all the flying geese goodness from other participants on Anja's linky.


  1. Great additions to the SAHRR. It's been interesting to see the different approaches to incorporating the different suggested rounds. Your version is looking great!

  2. I'm thoroughly enjoying the progress on each of the quilts! So many variations. I like your combination of the plus blocks and flying geese, and the bold red makes the center pop. Nice!

  3. That looks great, Linda! I really like how you combined your geese and plus blocks into one round. They surround your center block perfectly, but definitely don't distract from it!

  4. I love this version...nice way to use FG and not have them overwhelm the quilt!

  5. Your centre is amazing. Thanks for sewing along with us.

  6. I really like your subtle addition of the flying geese. It adds so much to the quilt without overwhelming it. Take care, Mary.

    1. Thank you so much Mary! I hope to be able to keep future borders subtle as well. Thanks for visiting.
