A couple Quilt tops!

I finished up a couple quilt tops this weekend!  Yay!  I'm chipping away at my projects. 
First up, this flying geese quilt.  I was mostly inspired by this quilt, but there are several like this out in the blogosphere.  I used the bloc-loc ruler for this one, and it was better than I thought it would be! I highly recommend it.

 I also finished up this quilt top, a great scrap buster, too.  (And while we are here, the leaves on my maple tree are shrivelling up on the ends, you can kind of see it in the picture.  It happens every year and I haven't figured out what is wrong...any tree experts out there?)

Awesome quilt tops! I love a good scrap quilt.

I must do a scrap buster next. I love yours.

Can't be certain but it looks like scorch. Where the leaves dry out before the tree can take up sufficient water. Have you had a drought for the last several years? Didn't check where you lived before I started writing.

Both quilt tops are beautiful but the flying geese is so wonderful! I love everything about it - your colors, fabrics, assembly. Just perfect!!! I have a love/hate relationship with flying geese but may try this. Thanks for sharing. You have completed some awesome quilts recently.

These are both fantastic, but I think I like the flying geese the best. What method did you use for sewing the geese?? I've got a quilt coming up that uses a lot of them, in different sizes, so purchased a set of bloc loc rulers (glad to hear they are worth it! because gosh - they are pricey!) but I haven't yet settled on how to make the geese in the first place...

(I'm sorry about your tree, but goodness, your sky is gorgeous!)

for the scrap one did you make larger squares and cut them or just pieced together a square and rectangle into long strips?
