Pointless Puddle

Remember the mistake I made with the flying geese for Ringo Lake? Why am I reminding you of my mistake? Because I joy-i-fied it.

Look what showed up from my sewing machine!

After agreeing to make eleventy million flying geese and other parts and pieces, it was hard to say no to sewing a few seams here and there.  Especially ones that did not require any points to match, and I could just trim everything to size.

Some binding strips? Sure, bring it on.
I cut the big squares for the flying geese a quarter inch too big, which made them too short and too wide, chopping off the points, and the colors were reversed so I couldn't use them for Ringo Lake.  I decided to make something to help motivate me to sew those eleventy million flying geese.  Someone made a smaller quilt and called it Ringo Puddle, and I like the name, so this one is Pointless Puddle. I'm not sure if it will be a pillow or a wall hanging. Right now, I am thinking a wall hanging that can double as a pillow cover.

I mitered the corners by making half square triangles.

Love the name! Great way to make the best of a mistake. It would be a great pillow to go on the bed with On Ringo Lake.

This is fantastic! What a great quilt made up of "mistakes". It is sure a lesson in not worrying when things don't go as planned.
