    Smile Attempt 2 on Placemat

    Hi

    I have tried again with the placemat and i think i like it! This time around i will handbind the binding.
    I Have made a new block using the flying geese method that elenor burns teach. But instead of completing the geese I made Wonky Geese block! What do you think?!

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I like that block better than the ordinary flying geese block! I don't know how you did it but it's great.

    I hope you are doing well.
