What advice would you give someone starting this project? I know, I know, I went ahead and finished it. I tried a couple of methods of making flying geese (including Laura's) with limited success. Finally went out and bought Eleanor Burns' flying geese ruler - very reliable. When I was doing the 1/2 sq triangles I thought I was doing them 4 at a time. However, the method I used actually made 8 at a time. I now have enough to make a pinwheel baby blanket!.

Thank you to everyone for your very generous comments. Now I need to decide whether to bind it in the blue background fabric or something darker. Suggestions?

Congratulations on a job well done. Your colors are beautiful. For the binding, I like contrast. Red or pink would look nice.

I'm glad I asked - I never would have thought of those colours.

I love your variety of colors -- it's a pleasing combination and very colorful without being overwhelming.

This looks great. I like the touches of black. I agree with MamaT about the binding color, or even more of the black! Have fun finishing!
