Flying Geese on a Curve

My friend is teaching a class at my local quilt shop and I decided to play along.  The class is based on Gail Garber's book Flying Colors: Design Quilts with Freeform Shapes and Flying Geese. The first session was two Saturdays ago and the final session will be this coming Saturday.  Our homework for the two-week period was to finish the paper-pieced units.  We each drew our own quilt design and my design is based on a leaf and includes not only paper-pieced geese, but paper-pieced spikes too.

I think I have some fabrics picked out for the remaining areas of the quilt.  This quilt will measure around 18 to 20" in size when done.  It's very exciting to see a design like this, that you've created yourself, come to life.
