Whirl Mini Quilt

Made this for the TMQG Not Really President's Challenge.
We each picked up a magazine from the stack that the presidents brought in and tore off page 25.
Our challenge was to make a mini quilt inspired by the page.

I don't have the page any more but it has a lot of browns and blues and I don't normally work with those colours. Then I realized that Carolyn Friedlander's Doe would fit the bill. Also included the yellow fabric from her Botanics line.

So I decided to make my Whirl Quilt block in a mini. I designed this one as a paper piecing pattern since each flying geese block would be 3" X 1.5" and I have trouble keeping those geese straight with a 6" block!

The mini quilt is a 12" square.
I didn't quite finish it before the deadline and didn't make it to that meeting so it was never entered into the challenge. But I now have a little table topper in my living room. :)
