Baby's Little Goslings

I gave it my best effort but the shower is tomorrow and the baby quilt is no where near finished.  Fortunately, the baby's not due til June 3rd so I'll work at finishing before then.  I did manage to chain piece half the flying geese.  Here they are waiting for their final cut!
The sashing fabric that I ordered arrived on friday but there was a mistake in the ad for the border/backing fabric and I couldn't get the amount I needed.  So I canceled that part of the order and, fortunately, was able to find what I needed locally.  Here's a pic of the pattern I'm using alongside the fabric samples.
Actually I'm kind of relieved to have more time so I can enjoy the process and probably do a better job in the long run.

As for tonight, I'm off with a friend to a movie we've been looking forward to.  We've both read the book (well I'm ALMOST finished) and hoping the movie version won't disappoint.

I'm sure you will finish by the time baby comes. It is going to be a beautiful quilt. Enjoy the movie. Never heard of it, but then again, I don't hear much now that I don't have a television. :)
