  4. I am possibly in, I am only doing one QAL right now and that is a 2 block a month all year one, so I should be ok. I have not done flying geese before though, so will it include a tut and/or be newbie friendly?

  5. I have never tried a QAL before, so not quite sure what is all involved, but this looks like a fun project to try and have the support and encouragement to actually make these blocks!

  14. I might just have to join this one, it will depend on the fabric requirements - must not buy any more fabric this year! I do have a collection of fabrics I bought late last year though so if they fit what I need - who knows?! I love the look of the quilt!
