Goose Tracks

She's finally finished.


The block is called Goose Tracks.  10" finished.  35 blocks in all.
The instructions I used are from the book,
Around the Block with Judy Hopkins.


Binding and backing are by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Drygoods.


The quilting is an an edge-to-edge loopy-swirl design (this particular design is one I use quite often.  I ♥ it.)  Jen Ostler in Cedar Hills, UT.  hand guided it and she did a great job!  She did larger swirls in the big black squares and smaller swirls every where else. 


She's as scrappy as can be.
All washed up and wrinkly.
And I like her.


Happy quilting to you.
Amber

Can you tell me what fabric you used and if there were any tricks or techniques to the pattern? I looked on Amazon for the book but it was expensive. I found an on-line free pattern that I think will work.
