Serendipity – Block 6 (Flying Geese block 2)

  Hi everyone. New month…new block. I just love this one. So here it is Serendipity – Geese Block 2. Oh Boy, did I have fun with hand quilting last week!  I felt a physical sense of loss after I was done. Yet also, strangely enough, relief.  It’s always nice when a chore turns out…
