 I've come up with a solution for the last six inches of my Time Flies quilt top. In the previous post I had a 6" x 12" hole to fill. I was able to make two flying geese units out of the scraps from the quilt I was working on at the beginning of November 2020 (which I don't seem to have shown you as a finished top! It's still waiting to be quilted; maybe I'll think to photograph it and show it to you then 😏).

So here's what I have now:

And here's what I did:

In case you can't tell, the black "goose" features a watch face. The blue patch will be where I inscribe the legend for this quilt. It won't be very detailed as there isn't a lot of room. Still, it will afford more room than the triangular patches I normally put in the corner on the backs of my quilts. This project has always been Time Flies in my mind. The more official title might be Time Flies Whether You're Having Fun or Not. I believe this flimsy is calling out for a border before being declared ready for quilting. However, it's time to round up some scraps to see what I can do with them for Scrap Happy Day on the 15th!


  1. Love the watch block and the possible name. A border will be so good, holding in all the geese.

  2. Time Flies (and indeed its unnofficial title) is the perfect name! I like your solution for the bottom corner. And I can't wait to see what you have for ScrapHappy Day :-)
